NZXT Phantom Full Tower Gaming Case
Intel® Core™ i5-2500K Processor
Liquid CPU Cooling System [SOCKET-1155 & 1156] - [Free Upgrade] Standard 120mm Fan
4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1600
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB
Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3
Corsair CMPSU-750TX
500 GB HARD DRIVE -- 16M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s
12-In-1 Internal Flash Media Card Reader
Intel Pro 10/100/1000 Network Card
Windows 7 Home Premium

Total - $1071
Just priced this out on NewEgg, $1071 it's not a terrible price. I guess they don't tell you what motherboard or hard drive you're getting? I'm sure they cheap out on those parts then. Anything a company doesn't specify is usually for a reason-- they don't want you to know.

I will say this is one of the better sales I've seen for these types of companies.

1. They often use less then average power supplies, we're talking cheapies. The kind that come with cases for free.
2. They often use budget parts, cheap motherboards/cheap hard drives etc. This means reliability=is flat out not good.
Ummm....you know you can choose what parts go into the system.

Yes but sometimes they don't tell you the model name and number, and which company built the parts. In this case they tell you some of the names.

Oh ok. Normally I don't advise buying from these companies, but in this case, I'd approve. It's a decent price for the parts you're getting-- Just don't get hammered on shipping.

I would seriously just build one. Just give a budget and what you plan to do w/the build, and the members will recommend builds for you.

It takes around 30 minutes to put everything together.

What takes the longest is installing OS and drivers/software, but that is an easy task.

I'm still considering that. But what I do need to know is if I need a full tower case. The Phantom looks badass but there aren't many cool mids that they have.

You need a full tower if:

you are going to be using those huge video cards (cuz some won't fit in a mid-tower cases).

you run many HDs, disk drives, SSDs, etc.


Personally, I find even a mid-tower to be too big because I just have 1 HD, 1 DVD drive, and 1 card-reader. But, you do generally get better cable management, and better case air cooling, not to mention room for a huge CPU heatsink/fan.
