No its not. Drop down to the 1155 i5 2500. Similar performance for a lot less money. You can also move to a 2x4GB set for an extra 2GBs. I would also get a different set of speakers. Those small units tend to not sound good.

1. If it's a gaming build, drop the 1366 MoBo / CPU / memory and get something for 1155.

2. I wouldn't include anything that says Rosewill or Kingwin on it.

This is $2,069 and it includes a great case and superb PSU (HAF-X / XFX Black 850 would be an alternate to consider at about $45 more). MoBo is a great overclocker and has full 3 year warranty. 2500k is best bang for the buck, CPU cooler is way more than ya need for Sandy Bridge, SLI graphics (two cards) for $440, Vertex 3 is 50% faster than C300, monitor is 120 Hz

Case - $155 - Antec DF-85
Case Fan - $15 - Antec Red 120 mm
PSU - $120 - Antec CP-850
MoBo - 180 - ASUS P8P67 Pro
CPU - 225 - Intel Core i5-2500K
Cooler - $40 - Scythe SCMG 2100
TIM - $5 - Shin Etsu
RAM - $84 - (2 x 4GB) Corsair CAS 9
GFX - $220 - EVGA GTX 560 (900MHz)
GFX - $220 - Same
HD - $65 - Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 rpm
SSD - $300 - OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" 120GB
BR Reader / DVD Writer - $90 - Plextor BR Combo Drive w/ LS
Monitor - $350 - ASUS VG236HE Black 23"

Two 560 GTX 900 Mhz will get you 862 fps in Guru3D's gaming test suite .... a single 580 gets 616, two 580's get's you
953..... you can get 10% more fps buying two 580's but it will cost you 227 % as much money.

I don't trust anything from logisys, even speakers.
