Like all pre-builts, there is much room for improvement and better balance. On a $1500 budget you could easily build yourself a better rig.

Nah I'd only mess up more and end up frying something I definitely don't want to happen.

If you have ever put together Lego's and have the ability to read, you can put together a computer.
It really is just a matter of following instructions and putting things in the appropriate slots.

When it comes down to the parts to pick, you can just ask the forum. We'l be able to make a pretty good rig for your budget and answer any questions you may have.

^It's actually really, REALLY easy to build a computer. Just watch a couple of newegg's youtube videos and you'll be golden.

That being said... that's not a good deal for 15K, and it will also under-perform massively if you're trying to game.

Aw really? I really can't find any other good rigs... and I'm in romania.

I read everything about the cpu and gpu and both have good scores and should run anything maxed at least on 1280x1024.

The CPU is overkill for a gaming rig, you dont need that much grunt for games. The GTX660 is a good card, but there are much better ones you can fit into this budget.

Thats a pretty small resolution...

That's pretty steep even for a pre-built. If you really want, I'll give you advice on parting out a better pre-built, but not before I pitch you on building yourself. :) 

I agree with the above posters, a home-built rig is easy to put together. To extend manofchalk's comparison, the average computer is easier to assemble than the most basic Lego kit. Seriously. It involves screws and stuff, but there are fewer parts to put together and it's very apparent where everything goes.

You also stand to save quite a bit of money. If you're willing to put $1500 into a pre-built, you could either get a slightly better rig for $1000 or nearly twice the performance for the same $1500 building yourself.

Well overkill is good anyway for the future, better be prepared.

Any other better cards that could work with the psu? If i were to change it?

Changing from a 2004 win xp machine to a 2012 win 7 rig is still worth it for me .

And obviously I am not gonna play exactly on 1280x1024 depending on the fps.
