Price $1014.00 before shipping

Should i buy this build while its on a holiday special or should i keep on waiting? and if i do wait about how long would it take for the specs listed above to be even lower than 1014.00? I do not plan to OC, upgrade, or slc.

The computer im using right now still works but its crappy and can't play BF3 and other high end games on good settings. This is the computer i have now

i7 920 2.67 mhz
gtx 260
6 gb ddr3

Thanks in advance

There is no way to predict how long it will take. But soon new lines of cpu's and gpu's will come out. Also look at a 7950, and windows 7

build your own it will be better, but if thats what you want to buy....

Downgrade/upgrade the PSU to either allow for SLI (750W) or save money and take it down to a 550W

If you havent noticed yet that you are getting a micro ATX motherboard (nothing wrong with that but Im guessing your on a tight budget which you havent told us what it is for use to help you out properly)
