honestly, i don't think thats the greatest of deals. i3 is pretty weak and integrated graphics? power supply is nice but i would get a weaker power supply and upgrade GPU and CPU power. go on newegg and u can prolly hand select way more powerful components for the same price.

It comes to $943.96 with a 2500k installed. I'll leave it to someone from the US to tell you if this is good value for money though.

Edit: wow, doesn't include a GPU or 64 bit windows 7 (which you need for 4GB of RAM). With a GTX560 graphics card and the 64 bit windows it's $1,229.95. Quite a lot.

No, you could get much better for the price.

Edit: I just threw this together really quick. Much better, about the same price. It would be less or have a better graphics card if HDD prices didn't suck atm.

That pricing seams a little on the high side. Starting with an i3 and integrated graphics for $800? You could build a 2500k with a gtx560ti for close to that.

No, for that you could just build it yourself and pick out the parts you like.
