Yeah, it's pretty good, but a bit expensive IMO.

963 with a cooler so you can OC.

You could easily go cheaper though. Just going by what you selected.

Most likely you will be able to build one cheaper.. also remember with that one it doesn't come with an OS so if your using windows it will be an extra $100 or so.

Also if you built one and spent the same price you could have yourself a great gaming machine.

Yeah, you can build the same for cheaper, or get a better GPU for roughly the same prices as that pre built.

If you're not playing to overclock your CPU, then don't get the K version. Which then you won't need an aftermarket CPU fan. You also don't need a 750W PSU...a 500-600W one will do you nicely. And you can go cheaper on a case and save like $50 on that.

With all of that money saved you could get a GPU like a 780 or a R9 290x. IMO the 290 is probably the better deal.

Looks good, unless you're overclocking you don't really need the CPU cooler. The stock one will work fine. And you can go cheaper on the case, unless you really want that case. And pretty sure you can find an optical drive for cheaper.
