Default Re: Seems like a great deal!

much better to make your own build, thats a rip off, and also has some badly selected parts. eg 750i.

Q9550
I45 biostar p45 mobo
4gb reaper HPC edition
HIS 4870
WD 640gb hdd
nzxt tempest case

total $1043

better and cheaper! also get a xigmatek rifle cpu cooler and you can overclock the things to about 3.4ghz pretty easily.

Eh 750i isn't that great when you can get a P45 and a better performing HD 4870...

or you could get a 750i FTW with a GTX 260 Core 216

That's a really great build. Do you think you could post the rest of the stuff I'd need?

If it's that much cheaper, I may be getting it much earlier than expected. xD

Yeah, never buy a prebuilt pc. iBuypower is generally a good oem to go to, but I only recommend oems for laptops, since they are either hard or expensive to build.

Baron tossed together a good build. I don't think you need the corsair 750, that's a tad overkill. Grab the 620hx or vx.

620 is expensive. You could just go with the 550vx.
