This seems like a pretty good deal to me, but what do I know? I could really use some advice here. I'm planning on keeping this computer for years (4+). Is this a goodcomputer for gaming (would be be able to run today's games at acceptable speeds?). And feed back would be appreciated.

Also, how are these i7 processors and am I getting good value for this price?

I'm not really sure about canadian prices, but it seems like a solid build. If you're going to be playing the latest and greatest games though, that graphics card may be a bit lacking if not now, within a few months. I'm not saying the cards bad, but, especially if you'll be running games at a high resolution, you may not be able to run newer games on the highest settings.

The Corei7 processors are the best out. If you're looking for a great gaming computer, and going to shell out more than a grand, then you should definitely get a Corei7.
