What do you guys (or gals) think of this? I have only ever built my own PC's but I have been out of the game for some time (wife kids ect). I am still rockin my core 2 duo with a 9800GT! I am open to building my own if it could save $200plus. Time is money after all.

So what do you think?

Yeah, stick to what you have or build your own.


The one you linked is not worth the money.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

Not worth it. It makes you ask, where is the money located? There isn't a discrete graphics card in there from what I could tell, and that's usually what jacks up the price of a computer above $1k. And rarely would I see a use for 16GB of RAM, not yet anyway.

I could build my own with same or close specs for much less? I would stick to what I have but my CPU cannot transcode 1080P on the fly while streaming.

It's about what I'd expect from Dell, but not something I would buy. Only a 650Ti, but 16GB RAM? They should take 8GB of that out and put in a GTX 760 for that price.

I know the specs are worse but are the $200 worse? Plus the gpu is better no? I have tried pricing out my own. Its not really that much cheaper.
