it looks liek a good build .... but if someone else (liek a company) is making you the computer .... it will always coast you more money ... if you know how to build a computer (which isent that hard) simply take all those parts and find them seperatly, and add to cart dont forget a case ... and then look at the price difference.

building can be cheaper, it also can be more expensive as you dont buy generic crap though as well thats the only warning. You do get a better pc though.
