Hiyas,
I've upgraded my old pc to the max and it's now having problems handling new games. I haven't bought a factory PC in 15 yrs or more. I was considering buying all the parts and building a new pc from scratch when I came across this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227580
It's on sale, free shipping, free tablet and a $40 gift card. Unless I'm missing something, I don't think I could build a pc with these components any cheaper than just buying this one. What do you think? Worth it?

That CPU and that GPU.... The CPU IS A 400 DOLLAR CPU AND THE GPU IS A 90 DOLLAR GPU! NO NO NO! Do not get that PC! Buy the parts yourself and build them yourself!

Things to look at. They are advertising a 1TB HDD, who does that? They want inexperienced people to come up and say WOW 1 TERABYTE and 8 GIGABYTES of RAM! You don't even know the latency or brand!

Trust me a build your own PC.

Well, the thing is I really don't have the time or energy to build another PC right now. So, if the one I listed is not a good one any suggestions? I'd like to keep it under $1,000.
