    This for gaming? If so, you're missing the video card (another $400+) :D

    Also, one 128GB SSD? That is gonna fill up in no time. Purchase a 500 or 2TB (or 3TB) HDD to store all your other stuff on (movies, ISOs, homework, fraps footage, etc) and ONLY install your games and OS on the SSD.

    I havnt built a Gaming computer in almost 2 years, but this one kinda resembles mine (spec wise) and the same price I paid, which isnt too good. I would image you could get at least an i7(not too big of a deal for gaming tho) and more RAM for the same price.

    Other than that, should be good. :D

    as usual I'm surprised you americans are used to buy completely assembled computers from "reputable" companies, from my experience people around me(eastern europe) mostly buy each component individually and then put them together. This way I can get exactly what I want without spending more money than neccessary. I'm not saying it's not a good way, it's just unusual from my point of view. In US you are all used to buy completed computers and not assebly parts by yourself?

    People here want the convenience of getting a computer that is already assembled by dell,gateway,apple etc.and they believe that it is really complicated to assemble a pc.
