Quick Question about Tiger Direct system

Hey Guys,

Not sure where else to post this, so, sorry if it's in the wrong spot.

I don't know much about building or PC components, and I want to buy a good system for the future.

Would this be a decent buy:

?

Thanks,

    Long answer:

    Seems a bit overpriced to me @ a thousand bucks....
    CPU is fine
    Mobo is simply OK. Asus and Gigabyte boards are much better
    HD is fine
    Memory is probably OK
    Avoid Ultra PSUs like the plague
    If you like the Ultra case....

    For my money, with much better components:

    Total: $949.95 with better hardware.
    Throw in a good video card, ATI 4870 1gb or Nvidia 260 216 and you have a system thats tough to beat for a decent price.
