My parts for my first build are already ordered and coming in a few days, but someone today showed me a barebones kit that he said was a much better deal (it had the same processor, Intel Core i5-2500K)
It comes with case w/ psu, motherboard, cpu, optical drive, hard drive, and memory for $440
The cost of my case, motherboard, cpu, optical drive, hard drive, and memory is ~$625.
(my parts are not a kit, they are separate)
I'm wondering how that kit compares with the parts I've ordered.
