yeh, to be honest due i would probly just buy one if i had the spare cash. Its a pretty good system and its alot easier, but keep in mind u could build it yourself and save alot of cash, and get a better system for the same amount

Yes AMD is by far better.

If your into overclocking, the venice cores are just as good as an FX-55 basicly.

Once we get into the san diego cores, they will beat out the fx-55 in terms of overclockability

I agree with everything apokilypse said except about the soundblaster and you need a DFI SLI-DR and not Ultra D
