no its not.

forget the 8150 cpu, go for the 6300.

also you'll need a gpu, this one uses onboard (terrible).

you dont need 16gig of ram, 8 will be fine.

the power supply isnt to hot.

after these changes (and adding a 660ti, wich they charge a whopping $345!!! for) it gets close to a grand. not worth it.

isn't black friday like 9 months away? if you want to wait that long, the new haswell chips from intel will be out and prices will have been cut at least 2 times by then, making it significantly cheaper.
