Hey there, I am looking to buy a new gaming pc for around 900 dollars. I live in Australia so prices for things are pretty high. I'm wondering if for 900$ I would be able to buy a decent set up to run graphically intense games coming out like battlefield 4?

I also have a guy offering me this:
I7-920 CPU
6 GB ram
1tb HD
1x6970
1x6950 in crossfire
1250w PSU
240 mm rad xspc
120mm rad xspc
Xspc resivoir
Llaing pump
All tubing etc
Gigabyte motherboard x58-UD5
3x Brushless Xigmatek Fans
LED lighting

for 850$. I know he hasn't been very specific in the details of the components but you get a rough idea. I would like an opinion on how powerful this pc is.

A lot of my friends buy their gaming computers pre built through ebay stores like PC-meal etc. I'm also wondering if this is the best bet due to my lack of experience in building and the general convenience of it. Thoughts?

Cheers ~ Jim

I can't vouch for price in AUD but I would avoid mixed crossfire.

Not worth it

You can buy parts for a brand new computer thats more powerful for less
