Hello, I am looking to build a new PC to replace my current one which is many years old and while still running, definitely starting to show it's age. I currently have an AMD phenom x4 9850 with 8GB ram running windows 7 on a standard SATA harddrive. I would like to upgrade to an Intel core i7 with at least 8 GB ram, a SSD and will likely run windows 7 or 8. I'd like to purchase a barebones kit which includes motherboard, processor, RAM, SSD, case and power supply. I wanted to see if anyone has suggestions on where to purchase these components already bundled in a kit? I know tigerdirect has some good barebones kits, any one know if there is anywhere else that is better? Price range will be somewhere between $600 and $800, although i'd like to keep it lower if possible. I want this system to last me a good long time, so I would like to get good quality components. I was looking at this system which seems to be well priced and includes all of what I need. Does this seem like a decent price to everybody? Thanks so much in advance for any and all suggestions. I was just going to wing it, but I figured I should ask for some opinions first!

That build kit that you linked to does not seem to have an OS included. Make sure you budget for that.
