This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Is this a good deal for a 700 dollar build? Or could you do better?

You could do better.
This would be $20 more, for instance, and would blow that build out of the water:

You could get a cheaper case if the $20 really made a difference to you.

Looks like that builds like 100 dollars more to me? Unless I am missing something.

I'm a derplord, this is what happens when I don't get my coffee. The newegg build isn't awful, but you could build better for the same price.

CPU and GPU are way out of date.
That is something you'd see someone post with the line "It is time for a new computer. Here is my old PC, is there anything salvageable from it?"

The builds Pyrotechnixxx have posted will make good gaming PCs that should last you a while.

$40 cheaper before MIR, $40 more expensive after MIR. Better GPU and Haswell. Can CFX down the line if you want.
