IBuypower System Build Suggestions

Hello, I'm planning on buying an iBuypower PC, and wondering if I should adjust any of these components for the better. One thing I was wondering is if I should stick with the current case, I don't have much wiggle room to improve it.
Perhaps a NZXT Alpha Gaming Case? Oblivious at this.
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    Have you thought about building it yourself?

    There is a level of satisfaction obtained by creating something yourself

    Built > Bought

    the list of parts looks pretty good anyway.

    it would be worth doing a price match against newegg.com to see what your actually paying for to have someone else put it together.
  2. Yes, I have thought about building it myself, but I don't have the time to invest in it unfortunately. :( Yeah, I would enjoy it, but it would take me way too long. Dx Bummed me out too.

    Ah, I have it about 60~120ish dollars or so off, I didn't get a chance to include all the tax/shipping and what not. I think it would save me a good amount of time for cost.
