Definitely better than the last one but you really need to read this article about PSUs, especially the last two pages:

But don't go with a two-egg rated SSD though - you'll wind up replacing that one a lot. Spend a few extra bucks and get a Crucial M4 - it's one of the best SSDs on the market.

Agree, the SSD is crap. Read some of the reviews. They all say it worked rarely and did strange things to Windows.

Yeah seriously. If you're gonna drop $1,000 on a computer and you don't have the money to replace anything if it goes bad, don't say we didn't warn you. :non: 

DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! Read reviews, read product recommendations, even check Consumer Reports, I don't care. Just don't buy crappy hardware for a system that you want to last just to buy it. Make sure you read through everything and check everywhere to make sure you're getting the best bang for your buck. The absolute worst thing you can do is pick crappy hardware because it's cheap and you want to get something that's more expensive because its' "faster". Really spend the time - pick out the right parts, and put together a good system. I will repeat: don't buy just to buy. Really do your research if you're going to spend $1K on a system.
