People say CyberpowerPC is not trustable and more expensive. Can anyone beat this for $899 (not including taxes or shipping)?

CAS: Cooler Master HAF 912
CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.50 GHz Eight-Core
FAN: Asetek 510LC 120mm Liquid Cooling CPU Cooler
HDD: 2TB (2TBx1) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD

They also would send a keyboard and mouse but whatever.
