    Looks pretty bad. Any company that advertises 4GB GTX600 series, and puts AMD processors in gaming systems is unqualified in my eyes.
    I know, numbers sell, but this is just bad.

    Original equipment manufacturer. I.e. you buy a Dell, or an Alienware (yes, I know for the anally-retentive that it's the same thing now...), or a HP... Or even a branded company like the ones above.

    Basically whenever you're buying a discrete *thing* already built, pre-loaded with software, boxed up and sent to you.

    ...As opposed to, well... Basically building your own PC from scratch.

    can save you quite a few 100's and likely better performance due to part selection.
    check this thread else, http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...omp-please-%29.
    likely will answer some questions on your mind aswell.

    I get the feeling that a 500watt psu isn't going to be enough. Also thats extremely expensive. You should be able to build a good computer for 1k give or take a bit

    Better graphics card, better all around parts. You save 500 bucks.

    Do get a proper PSU with that, corsair tx/hx/ax or the likes.
    That 600 watt PSU is in fact only a 480 watt PSU. It might still be enough but when you are going with a budget like that, you can get a better PSU.

    Why? Whats wrong with the cx600? I've had mine for 2 years with a overclocked cpu/gpu. It's perfect unless he wanna aim for sli which is waste of money.

    It's excellent judging from the reviews, although there is better card brands for the 680 (msi/asus), but more expensive also.

    Just as i said it, it is actually a 480 watt psu instead of the advertised 600 watt. Imo, that makes it a bad PSU. For low budget builds its fine, but for stuff like this I would go with an higher end PSU.

    I wouldn't buy one. I just looked and the exact rig i built for myself. They want over double what i paid to build my own. $2906 compared to $1312. I know why someone would prefer not to build their own, but buying prebuilt is something I will never do again. Too high of a mark up.

    Overpriced by $500, no name on graphics card is suspicious and crappy PSU on top.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.
