Now I have a final idea of I'm planning on doing. Is it a good deal, or what? Note that I can't build.

8gb Ram
600w PSU
1 TB 7200 rom
2GB DDR3 AMD Radeon HD 7570 (Doesn't matter to much because I am planning on upgrading pretty soon)

For $929, how is it? I know I could get a much better price if I built it or used ibuypower/cyberpower, but I don't want those options unless I'm REALLY getting ripped off. :D

For gaming a build with LESS CPU is normally the correct balance.

Assume you buy the above build then add $200 video card.

Stepping down to an I5-3470 saves over $100. You then put the extra $100 towards video. An I5-3470 build with a $300 video card is measurably better for gaming than an i7-3770 with a $200 card.

(If the purpose of the system is video editing then the i7 system makes sense)

Unfortunately, HP does not give those options, and I cannot build.
