Well you seem to have a BIAS already against this system for some reason. I do not know why, but a lot of people on the board disagree with you....so you are in the minority on this subject!
1.As far as part per part specifics?
8GB [8x1] 1600MHz
Stock INTEL CPU Cooling Fan with Heatsink
1TB 7200RPM SATA III Hard Drive
Hard Drive 2:
Onboard 3D Premium Surround Sound
Onboard LAN Network 10/100
24X DVDRW Internal Drive
Basic USB Keyboard
Basic USB Mouse
FROM A VERFIED PURCHASER ON AMAZON.COM:
I just received this computer today, I was wondering which manufacturers were used to supply the internal parts, so I thought I would include that in this early review. The motherboard is an MSI motherboard utilizing the H81 chipset, Model #H81m-e33. The video card is a Zotac GTX 760 card, and the hard drive is your standard Western Digital Blue. The power supply I received in this computer is an Enermax NAXN 550w. The 8gb of ram included were G.Skill Ripjaw, Red in color. The optical drive included in this computer is an LG Internal Super Multi Drive, Model #GH24NSB
If THAT is not enough for you, then go and build your own! But for most people...it would be!
Hi, just so you know, being the minority is not the issue here. These forums exist to help those who are asking for help. And I don't think they disagree with me anyway.
as stated above, the bundles usually have the power supply budget compromised, so, in effect, be prepared to get yourself one of those corsair 750 watt getups like these (preferrably modular)
Second. I was asking for the part per part specifics including the brands and the models of the hardware. Why? Because we must admit, some brands are cheap, and they are cheap for a reason.
Third. Call it bias if you want to, but like I said, I would rather secure myself with new and branded parts that would last me for years. If you are getting a pre-bundled one, are you sure those parts are not just refurbished? But like I said earlier, these are MY take on the subject I am just suggesting things that you MIGHT have overlooked.
Finally, pre-built PCs are generally not bad if you are not comfortable with building your own then be my guest. But next time please do not ask this.
All I am wanting to know is if there is a better per built out there for this price? ($879.99 as configured without options)
It confuses some people. I did. Cause i could sure make a way better build with that amount or even less.
Again, I am not forcing you to build your own PC, I never did. I am just letting you know that there are better options out there. Also, I am just looking out for your budget. I think you deserve a better PC with that amount of cash. I dont want you to spend that much money and get upset because of a cheap part somewhere. But if that didn't come across then I'm sorry.
Apologies for the wall of text. I just want to clear things up. Cheers.
