  1. This is a full working computer (minus graphics card and cd drive) as a newegg.com shell shocker today only.

    CPU: i5-4670k
    Motherboard: asus z87-a
    PSU: Cooler Master Extreme 525w
    Case: Rosewill Red Bone
    Hdd: Seagate barracuda 7200rpm 1tb 64mb cache
    Ram: crucial 1600 8gb (1 stick)

    Around 120 dollars off, that's half the cost of the i5 and leaves you plenty of room for a gpu and an aftermarket cooler for the overclocking enuthiasts!!!

    This is the correct link by the way: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1353139.
    That motherboard is fairly low end, but I dont expect much for $500. I never use CM PSUs, so I would not take that. The case is really personal preference. Personally, I dont really like it. Finally, the RAM should be 4x2GB not just 1 stick. That bundle is great for budget builders, but it needs some tweaking. I would pop in a WD HDD instead since I have had a lot of dead Seagate HDDs in the past.

    I think both GhostRyder and myself are fine with you using WD. We will continue using Seagate without issues.
    Besides this is not a build were you can swap parts, it is a bundle which dictates the items sold within. If you switch parts, you risk losing the bundle discount.

    Yeah, but the bundle really just needs 2x4GB sticks of RAM and it is great.
