is this a good PC for $1500

Samsung SH-224DB (BB) 24x Internal SATA DVD OEM Burner Drive
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition 8-Core Socket AM3+ CPU Processor
Seagate 1TB Barracuda 3.5” 7200RPM SATA3 Hard Drive - ST1000DM003
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Memory KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 OEM 64-Bit (might change to windows 8)
Corsair 200R Carbide Case
Corsair CX-600 V3 80+ Bronze Power Supply
Corsair Hydro Series H60 SE Liquid CPU Cooler
Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" SATA III SSD MZ-7TE120BW
ASUS AMD Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP Overclocked 3GB Video Card

there's also a similar version using Intel Core i5 4670K Quad Core and a ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance LGA 1150 Motherboard

so is this a good built for the money i usually built my own but don't have much more then $1500 to spend

first question which would you recommend the AMD or intel version and would 8gb of ram be enough.. (i could always add more later on)

    You'll be fine for the rest of the coming decade and more. Nice build! Keep the 8350, has more performance per dollar.
  3. woah hold up that's a good deal? They put down the motherboard for $130 and on newegg its $94 and the 8350 the want $279 when newegg has it for $200. Right there is most of your made up 210 savings and that's just 2 parts to the whole build marked way up. If you have the know how build it yourself and save way more than there overpriced "Savings"
  4. thanks for the replies..

    as much as i would want to save the extra money on newegg atm i don't have the time to build it.. $1500 seems responsible (and like $15 to deliver)
