NO !! Please stay off that ibuypower site you're looking at. Check out Tarun's build above. That is an amazing rig that ibuypower would charge about 4k for.

build your own

if you don't want to, im sure an OCN member who lives near you would be glad to do so, as putting new rigs together is always fun. Plus you'll save a ton of cash, and be able to get a much better rig
