Yeah that actually a really good deal, imo anyways. the i7-3770 is very a powerful processor, and is usually in more expensive computers. If you're a gamer, then without question you'd have to get a new graphics card. But otherwise thats a steal!

that is a fair price for the components you will get:
i7-3770 is about $300, windows home pre is $100 and a 2 TB HD is around $80 so that is $480 right there.

so that leaves ~$70 for an OEM motherboard, that is likely a H77 or B75 chipset, a 7570 graphics card with a case and media reader along with some "vanilla" PSU.

i would recommend looking at replacing the PSU for a better quality one that usually comes with prebuilts like that.
