There is some parts that are not that great such as PSU and memory, but it is so cheap!
I wonder if it is a too good of deal to pass up or to wait.

    This is only $60 more and everything is MUCH better quality and MUCH newer.

    Plus this price includes shipping and the newegg stuff will have to be payed for to ship.
  2. It was meant to be a cheapy build, but I guess just throw the PSU out right?
  3. That PSU is awful and I would never trust any system to it. Its not worth using a crap PSU because if it fails it can take the rest of the components with it. Its the last place to skimp.
  4. I just said throw it out right?
  5. yeah, don't use that PSU. Get one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
  6. Best answer
    Yes, that one is very good. The RAm included is super slow. you want 160mhz RAM.

    For the same money, you can buy better components that will be more reliable. I wouldn't buy this combo if I were you.
  7. I guess it will end up being the same cost to get rid of the memory and PSU.
