No other options? I've had a lot of problems with ASUS gear, and the after sales and warranty service is some of the worst I've ever experienced. And having spoken to many others, this seems to be a general problem.
Have you considered some of the Intel equivalents?
CPU : Core i5-2500
RAM : 4*4GB TwinMOS DDR3 1333
Power : FSP BlueStorm II 500 watt
VGA : 90% ASUS GTX 550
