depends on the actual specs of the video card and processor as well as ram and SSD and motherboard

 

if you have model numbers itll help determine price for performance

MSI X58M goes on amazon for about 20.00 https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=MSI+X58M&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3AMSI+X58M

 

Nividia GTX 450 goes on for about 70.00 https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Nividia+GTX+450&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3ANividia+GTX+450

 

 ram can be as cheap as 60 for 16gb depending on the brand https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-HyperX-FURY-2x8GB-1866MHz/dp/B00J8E8Y5C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1465694709&sr=8-1&keywords=ddr3

 

ssd 240gb can be about 65 new https://www.amazon.com/OCZ-Storage-Solutions-Internal-TRN150-25SAT3-240G/dp/B01B4NUKMY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1465694736&sr=8-1&keywords=ocz

 

and the case could very well go for 50 https://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_1_1_hso_sc_smartcategory_2?rh=n%3A572238%2Ck%3Acoolermaster&keywords=coolermaster&ie=UTF8&qid=1465694771&sr=8-1-acs

 

power supply for around 100 https://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_p_n_feature_keywords_5?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=n%3A172282%2Cn%3A541966%2Cn%3A193870011%2Cn%3A1161760%2Ck%3Apower+supply%2Cp_n_feature_keywords_two_browse-bin%3A6906987011&keywords=power+supply&ie=UTF8&qid=1465694858&rnid=6525659011

 

all are very vague numbers but bring you to around 370.00 USD

 

more info can be given if you have the model of the power supply as well as the computer case and the ram and SSD

 

links provided for research processes

 

so we account for 40.00 per 500gb HDD x2 rings in around 450

 

and that's before even price checking the cpu

 

so its not a great deal but its also not over priced either (in my opinion) depending on your budget it may be worth while building yourself

It comes with a keyboard and mouse, just need to grab a few monitors. Complete setup should run me $650. Would you pull the trigger?

I would like a dual monitor setup because I am a student and thus I write and research lots. It would be nice to have a dual monitor so I can have word open on one screen and explorer on the other. Create efficiency.
