  1. Yes. If I had to guess, it would cost you $800 to build it yourself.

    The OS and RAM are around $300 by themselves. The GPU is another $200. The BD reader is $100. CPU and mobo are over $150 together. PSU is very high quality.

    Most everything is quaility. The only parts I would change if I were building it new would be the motherboard so it supports DDR3 and Crossfire (which would require a new OS assuming it's OEM and new RAM) and the HDD (older Seagates aren't that great, and the new Samsung Spinpoint F3s are awesome).
