No, and no prebuilt ever will be.

It's WAY overpriced, and has a disproportionately powerful CPU compared to the GPU.

$200 overpriced and you can beat that performance for $700.

Not really. I seen A LOT worse. I tried to replicate the build and I came up with this.

Now if you add in Windows and a basic Keyboard and mouse. That'll be like 120-130 more on to the price there. So in all honesty its not that much more. Its actually pretty reasonably priced but I bet the PSU is crap though.

The question is why does it have an i7 + 750 instead of, say, an i5 + 270X?

Right. It's horribly unbalanced for parts and one can do much better but at a lower cost and get better performance as well. I just tried to replicate the same system to just see what the price would be like and its not that much cheaper.
