I'm not interested in overclocking or dual video cards. I just want to use this system for gaming. I can get nearly the same setup at Dell for $1649, so is this setup worth the extra money or is dell a safer choice?

P.S. Do I really need all of those extra things like Noise Reduction, Extra Case Fan, and Hard Drive Cooling?

^+1 on DIY. You can build the same PC (the Cyberpower) for ~$200 cheaper than the Dell with the LCD/OS accounted for if you go DIY. Hell you could add an SSD (X25-M) for a $1600 build if you go DIY!

I just bought a nice system from Cyberpower, and had no problem. Even shipped early.
