Well... no - you pay like tons of markup for a crap product.


If you could push $800 this would be beast. How much overclocking are you wanting to do? $700 -800 is that sort of boarder line where you can get a REALLY good bang for buck machine.

Xbox 360

lol but no really:

i5 2500K - $220
GIGABYTE GA-Z68M-D2H - $95
8GB (2x 4GB Corsair) Vengeance - $50
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB - $70
Sapphire 6870 1GB - $180 ($170 with promo code)
Antec Three Hundred - $60 ($45 after rebate)
Antec 550W Modular PSU - $65
LG CD/DVD Burner - $19

$732 with rebates/promos. $713 if you already have a DVD drive. Not sure if it's possible to go any lower without going AMD or just getting an i3.
