Hi,

The kit is not a bad deal except for the power supply wont be able to handle any decent graphics cards. However the 6 core and ssd it offers will make for a very zippy computer. But i wont be using it since your budget is rather low and the 6 core is rather unnecessary. Alright lets start from scratch!
