  2. It's not bad but you can do allot better for a $1400 gaming build. The CPU you choose is not needed and the 2GB GPU is not a very wise choice for 1080P and under. Dont forget a case.
  3. i smell a prebuilt rig and those are always a rip off to be honest.

    look for one with an i5-2500k (actually any i5 will do) it will hurt your wallet less.
