It looks solid, but just know that AMD CPUs aren't as good as Intel. I would also reccomend that you scrap the flash reader and go witha better video card, there is currently a sale on the 7950 on cyberpower right now. Also, you can get a free 128gb SSD after mail in rebate, check that out., you can use it as the data drive. Finally, if you enter he coupon code SPRING0410, you get 5% off your purchase, use that to help you get the components I told you about.

Okay, thank you. One question would the free GIGABYTE GC-WB300D Exclusive Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi PCIe Expansion Card work better than the ASUS USB-N53 802.11a/b/g/n 300Mbps Dual-Band Wireless N300 USB Adapter?

I'd say get an i5 3570, drop all the unnecessary things like shipping protection, "special" wiring...it's all the same.. Drop the flash writer/reader, mouse pad (just use one lying around the house) and with the extra 40/50$, get a better graphics card. Plus, if you have another comp in the house with windows 7 on it, use the install disc that came with it and save a 100$...
