  1. Rip off.

    Build your own.
  2. Why do people come to a thread titled "prebuilt" to tell eveyone to build their own?
  3. That is ridiculously expensive. 1/10

    Maybe they know something?

    Here is a list. In all cases where the part they used is unknown, a BETTER part has been used. I promise this list is complete and far exceeds the computer shown.

    SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner SATA Model SH-222BB/BEBE - OEM
    BitFenix Colossus Black / Red/Blue LED / Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
    Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    TOTAL: $1,386.90

    So, that leaves $513, about. Remember, many of the chosen parts are superior to what is in the listed machine.

    So, take the list I have given you down to the local IT shop. Have them make it and give you a warranty for $400. Now you have a relationship with a local business and excellent support.

    Maybe because you can learn something? :whistle:
  6. Alright, but my main concern is if the system ITSELF would be good for gaming. I am fully aware I can build my own for cheaper. I was just wondering on a scale from 1-10 how good the PERFORMANCE of the pc would be, henceforth why I said I am not concerned with the price.

    Im not asking if it's a good deal, I'm asking if it is good for gaming.
  7. You can't judge hardware purely on performance in games. That does not take into account the quality of the parts themselves.

    I posted a $1400 system. I could build a system that would perform exactly the same for $1200 or less. I would simply cut back on the parts so as to limit your ability to upgrade in the future.

    Instead, I listed a case, MB, and PSU that would easily accommodate a second GTX 670, so you could easily improve gaming performance.

    The ONLY parts actually specified on that link are the CPU, GPU, CPU cooling, and HDD. We can't actually say how good it is, but they didn't specify, and that is a very bad sign.
  8. Alright I see, thanks, I guess I should be asking then how good would the system you listed would be for gaming? Wouldn't two 670 gtx's or a gtx 680 pretty much max out everythig?
  9. Why not do what Proximon suggested and support a local business if you're not gonna build your own?
  10. I am willing to build my own, much as I would be thrilled to support a local IT :3
  11. Oh right sorry, I must have misunderstood.
  12. No problem, I didn't really clarify, my bad :)
  13. Yes, it's a good system. Just saying "good for gaming" is a bit unclear though.
    I chose the case because I thought you might want it for looks, and it is otherwise a feature rich case.

    If you want to just game at 1920x1080 resolution it is a very good system. If you wanted 3 monitors for surround gaming, not so much.
