I also bought warranties, the final cost of this would be $390 (after mail in rebates, and not including warranties. I ordered half of the parts on black friday and then the others throughout the week. Do you guys think this build was worth the price?

Very similar to my rig. I really like it. Simple and cheap and gets the job done. Plays all games on mostly high settings.

Would my PSU be able to handle it being overclocked?
