You can build yourself the same configuration for less than 2000$ and you can choose a less expensive mobo, better fans, case, RAM, SSD, and GPU for the same price.
Why should I buy an Avatar?
If you are not able to build it yourself it'll cost you around 50$, not 500$.

It is a massive ripoff, While I could not get the same case, I picked parts for an equivalent system. and ended up with a significantly lower price. Building it yourself, will be $783.84 cheaper. that is enough money to buy an extra GTX 1080, and a 256GB Samsung 950 Pro SSD to go along with your 500GB 850 evo, and 1TB HDD.

Building that same system:
Base Total: $1745.38
Mail-in Rebates: -$30.00
Shipping: $9.78
Total: $1725.16

This same build on black Friday, would have been about $1600

I also prefer to build gaming rigs vs. buying turn-key system, but this is clearly aimed at people who are willing to spend more and spend zero time pairing components, price hunting for components, building, testing, loading OS, tweaking BIOS configurations, or any such thing.

Some people simply place higher value on their time than those of us who enjoy building a rig, and from that perspective, systems like these are far from a "rip off".

there is a three year warranty . most places charge 300.00 or more for it .even though the parts come with there own warranties out of the box. for the added piece of mind and warranty, and w/o the hassle of building it. i think it's a good buy ...of course my hands don't work like they used to.
