    Well Ive been looking around for a nice Mother Board/CPU and my dad had found this and told me I should buy this(more like demanded). Anyways I wanted your opinions on this deal because when I looked at this I thought "Wow all this stuff for just $349.99! What a load of sh*t!"

    The Motherboard is not the best, but for that price, you can expect to get a top tier brand lol. Still a VERY good buy, and perfectly fine for a mid-price barebone kit, I would get it :smile:

    It is. But it is also not.

    Consider this: Graphics card are upgradeable, why not skimp on the GFX card for awhile, buy a lower end one, and wait until some either drop in price, or a better one for the same is produced.

    It depends on your budget though. And you current needs and wants.

    The deal is good, but just think about it before you buy. Look up games requirements and crap to make sure it'll play smoothly.

    I see what your saying but I think that the Graphics Card is built into the Motherboard so I can't upgrade it.

    This honestly is not a very good deal at all if you plan on upgrading anything anytime soon. All this is dead end material. The only thing that I would agree on is its a good price tag on things that will not be used in another year. Depends on your budget.

    The motherboard has a chipset, not a graphics card of its own. It's integrated.

    But you do have a PCI-E slot so you can stick a graphics card in whenever.

    I'll put together something for you... what is your limit?

    Also:
    What resolution do you use on your monitor?
    What do you intend on using this computer for the most?
    What is the minimum and maximum that you are willing to pay?
