Honestly you are getting way less then what you could with a custom made system. The first thing I want to touch on is the video card. You are only getting a 128mb video card with 128bit interface. The other thing is the processor. For 1700$ you could definately get atleast a 3700+. For the price you'd expect that it would come with a nice LCD moniter but it doesn't...don't even bother buying it.
