    Decent built, but the case and psu is pretty low quality.
    Here's my recommendations:

    -took out cpu cooler. You can always add it in later in the future when you get a bit more money.
    -Upgraded psu and case. Much better quality psu and case.
  4. I don't agree on the PSU being low quality. Corsair isn't really low quality. And I definitively feel like a 750W PSU is going to be overkill on a single GTX 760. Plus he wants to be UNDER $700.
  5. Corsair is generally a really good brand. However, their only bad psu is the Corsair CX line-up. They use crappy channel well capacitors so they are low-quality, which is why it's much cheaper than others.

    Yes, 750w is overkill. But look at the price. $55 for 750w? That's extremely cheap for a good quality psu. The 550w version is $55 as well.

    I think going $2 above budget is worth the extra quality you're getting.
