New system a good deal?

Hey folks! So I'm debating about getting a certified "new" system from Dell outlet with the following specs:

Dell XPS 8500

12 gb ram 1600mhz

2tb hd

AMD 7570.

Windows 7

I currently have a 550 w power supply and a Nvidia 560 ti that I'm going to pop into this puppy. The system runs for $650.00 (after tax + shipping)

Good deal or wait?

  1. If this is for gaming, you might be able to save some money on a i5.
  2. Going to be using the system primarily for gaming. So the difference between the i5 and i7 is negligible?
  3. Pretty much.

    Is your 550W of a good brand?

    Here's what I would do:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($149.99 @ Microcenter)
    Motherboard: ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg)

    Optical Drive: Samsung SH-222BB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ CompUSA)
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($91.99 @ Amazon)
    Total: $477.16
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    You can spend much much less and get about the same performance, and having a much cooler looking computer.
