Default Is this a good PRE BUILT PC for the price?


I KNOW you can build one cheaper....but I am wondering if this computer is one of the best pre built gaming PC's you can get for the price. ($879.99 as configured without options)

Some people do not have the skills to "bulid their own PC" so please take that into consideration.

All I am wanting to know is if there is a better per built out there for this price?

Cheap mobo - I think just about cheapest possible for LGA1150 - no-name HDD, no-name power supply, unknown memory latency.

I would not take too much care about memory latency.
Those (overclocker) memory modules with extremely low latency that need modified operating voltages can cause a lot more trouble than the (minimal speed gain) is worth.
Quite often thats the modules that use metal heatsinks which puropssse is to hide the memory deices below them (which are not rated for the timing) and not needed to cool them.

A no-name power supply is something that I'd avoid, too.

About the harddisk... there are only few (three) companeis left in that market. Plus some older names which they might still use for marketing after the takeover of the former manufacturer. So no real risk there.
