I know you said you're a noob, but do you have any interest on putting together a build yourself? You'll save a ton of money, and get to pick exactly what you want. If you don't want to, I completely understand, but just thought I'd mention it anyways.

Yeah i would have to agree..... For that price you could have an exponentially better system... But a decent system none the less

Oh, sorry! I misunderstood the post, I thought you were asking beforehand whether to get the computer or not. That being said, that's a great machine man. You'll be able to run pretty much anything you throw at it.

Yep, Cyberpower has good prices, and I believe they are also doing specials for 4th of July. It's definitely worth checking out.
