Is this computer any good for the price range?

I don't know if this is a good deal or no: http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Gamer_Mage_D415/w/128776
It has a 19" monitor. If anybody can replicate this build or change it up for the better from http://newegg.com or http://amazon.com/ would be amazing if you can link me.

  1. Definitely one can build a better system IMO. When the builder doesn't specify a specific brand/model of the power supply...other than a 700 watt standard power supply...I would walk/run away.

    I really don't want to buy this, but I can't figure out what to buy that fits together.
  3. Budget? Parts not needed?

    Parts needed: Case, video card, processor, processor cooler, memory, motherboard, Motherboard USB, 700+ watt power supply, Hard drive, optical drive, sound card, network card.

    I honestly don't know jack about building a computer, if you can tell me what I wont need that would be very helpful. I just want a computer that can run games well, do my work, and watch movies.
  5. No need for a sound or network card as they come on the motherboard.

    520W is even enough if you OC the video card to 1GHz.
  6. You will probably need a monitor and keyboard/mouse? Win7? No existing parts/components?

    This build is much better than the iBuyPower OP linked. +1

    I saw that...these parts didn't compare exactly to that build from the iBuyPower link.

    Looks like the OP needs a full computer system.

  10. Can still be done. Just downgrade GPU to a 6870, drop the CPU to an i3-2120, the MOBO to an H67 chipset, a 21.5" monitor for like $130, and it will still be better than the iBuyPower build.
