I've seen worse but that was pretty bad considering you could build it yourself for ~$400 less.

You can get at least 2GB RAM and a better GFX for $1.4k

Socket 939 and the usually incompatible x64... it might be a deal for half the price......<br />
<br />
Extend my sympathy to your friend's wallet.

Any chance for refund? Even if he gets store credit, it's worth it.

If your buddy was really afraid of building his own then encourage him to learn!<br />
<br />
The 64-bit windows (ugh), ugly case, audigy, and half pound PSU are all glaring weak points...<br />
<br />
Tell him to ebay it the moment it comes in and get back out there and try again! $1400 is a lot of money to spend to not have the best!

Man. Another lesson learned about how custom building is the way to go. Even if my friends are scared to build, I end up doing it for them for a small fee! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Your buddies system will only be worth $500. in a month or two.<br />
You should of stopped him, but he'll be happy with it (or he'll throw it out the window after reality sets in!)<img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />

Two options:<br />
<br />
1) send that thing back for a full refund ...wreck it if necessary (no, I did not say that..<img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /><br />
2) eBay it as the 'ultimate gaming rig' that pwns all.... stating it's bought brand new for $1,400 just a week ago <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
