Intel Core i7 3770k(3.50GHz) ,16GB DDR3, 2TB HDD , Capacity AMD Radeon HD 7750 2GB , Windows 8 64-Bit and a decent motherboard for 600$ is that a good bang for the buck?

your going to have to be more specific. Is someone offering to sell you that? Are you buying parts? Whats it for?

Its a top end CPU, more memory than you'll probably ever use, and a very low end GPU. If its for gaming its a very poorly thought out build.

I am not really a hardcore gamer , it is more for casual gaming (fifa 13, strategy gaming, and some cod at 720p) i can upgrade the graphics afterward i just want to know if for 600 dollars is this setup worth it for the money. and what would you suggest if i want to upgrade it in the future. Thank you.

I'd ask where you're getting this system from. It should be fine for your usage, but I do question some of the components included. As unskol states, it's not exactly a system I'd put together.

Edit: And if I bothered to read the Sub-Forum title, I'd probably guess the system was coming from CyberPowerPC. :whistle:

yes it is cyberpower pc that is why i am wondering if for this price its worth it to buy it and then make upgrades to it with time. i compared specs and prices of the components as if i was going to build the same one it came up to the same price or more depending on the quality of the components. my question is more like is this worth the 600 dollars i am putting in to it. as i saw in other threads , people bought way inferior computers for the same price from them. I really appreciate your help thank you =)

If you're able to get all that for $600, I'd probably jump at the opportunity, but I'll be honest. Something seems fishy to me. I put the following together and ended up over $600.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($319.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: GeIL Enhance CORSA 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($73.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 7750 2GB Video Card ($84.99 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (OEM) (64-bit) ($89.98 @ Outlet PC)
Total: $658.93
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-12-29 14:53 EST-0500)

This doesn't even include a "quality" motherboard, case or power supply; all of which should add about another $200 to the price.

i already ordered this computer from newegg so i don't think this is a scam. i did the same comparison you did and ended up with the same conclusion that is why i bought it with upgrades in mind. the power supply is low end (extreme gear) i might change it if it gives me trouble otherwise i am going to upgrade it when upgrading the gpu in the near future. overall i know cyberpower is not a very reliable brand but the price is too good to be true i can live with that. This forum is really amazing, thanks for all the help and the fast responses.
