Go to Newegg.com or tigerdirect.com and order the parts to build it yourself. You'll save some $, get better componets for your $, and have a fun time building it.

I just built my new system lastnight for the first time in my life but as long as you stick to manuals and look up some installation video on youtubes, especially the cpu cooler, then you won't have any problems. Plus, you get to choose w/e parts you want and the cable management will be whole lot better if you want to do that too.

Ok after speaking with tons of people on a live stream on those 3 pcs. I'v decided the one on criags, i save 100-200$ and i can get it in 2 days and sli 460s wont last me forever where as 6950s would do more in the end.
