Its at Newegg

Now I know that it can be custom built but it does come with windows pre installed. Anyways let me know what you think I'll be hooking it up to a 1080 P TV and use it mostly for gaming, media, and AutoCAD.

Its not bad. I don't fancy the iBuypower logos on it, and you can get a much stronger GPU and power supply in there if you build it yourself.

I'm not at all against spray painting that out =) . Mind showing me an example? Including the cost of thermal glue, windows, and any other equipment I'd need.

You might have to go a little over budget to get a keyboard and mouse, but this is an all around higher performing build, as the GPU is stronger, while the CPU is still one of the best for today's gaming.
