Default Is this not an awesome barebones kit?

Intel Core i5 Socket 1156 Barebone Kit - Intel DP55WB MOBO, Intel Core I5 750 CPU, 4GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, Apex Case, 750 Watt PSU

$499.99 free shipping and no tax, at least here in Cali

Cpu is awesome, and comes with stock fan, which i may upgrade
Mobo - MicroATX kinda turns me off, but i plan on upgrading to another mobo in the near future to sli my cards, since this mobo only has 1 slot for a pciexpress 2.0 card. The ram is good i think becuase its OCZ platinum ram 2x2046 PC3 1066 DDr ram. The PSU is sick for a budget rig like this, its an Ultrade 750 PSU. The psu and case and eventually id like to upgrade when newer games come out I plan on throwing in a 8800gt i have now, any thoughts? Is it worth $499?

I wouldn't get that. It's cheap because most of the parts are really low end.

4670K @ 4.4GHz 1.18v | GA-Z87X-UD4H | 8GB G. Skill 1866 | 128GB Crucial M4 | 750GB WD Caviar Black | MSI 7850 Twin Frozr | Megahalems | 650TX | CM690

I agree with Nubbleet, the Power Supply is a prime example. Ultra's are probably the worst units made.
