Hey there akataria,

This system is definitely going to be able to eat up games. This should play most/all current games on the market at ultra settings. It actually looks like a very solid build for the price. Once you consider that you are also getting an OS with this as well, you are probably only paying around $100 or less in markup over buying the parts and building yourself.

Looks like a good deal!

Umm... I think you are confusing your platforms. This rig is an intel rig, while you are commenting on AMD's bulldozer. They are not compatible in any way.

This is a good system that should last you quite a few years. The next generation of intel systems will be based on the ivy bridge format. I don't know enough about intel platforms to be sure if this MOBO will be compatible with the next generation from intel. My gut feeling is NO, it will not be, but I will let someone more informed confirm this.

The only real drawback I see is that this MOBO doesn't appear to have 2 PCI-e slots for SLI or crossfire. The nvidia card that comes with this system should play very well for just about anything out now or in the near future. That said, this card will eventually become old tech and you may want to be able to SLI or crossfire your GPU.

I still think this is a nice rig and wouldn't hesitate to purchase it. You may want to look at other MOBO options so that you have SLI/crossfire available for future gaming.
