My System Specs


NCIX.com - Buy Nx Fusion 12-SERIES PC Core i7 920 X58 6GB RAM GTX 280 1TB HDD DVD 650W PSU -ASSEMBLED - NCIXPC-V6200 In Canada.
Core i7 920, EVGA X58, WD 1TB HDD, EVGA GTX 280, Antec 1200, Corsair 650w, Corsair DDR3 1333, and preassembled..... $1759.99
1. Case is meh...imo
2. PSU is typically not enough if you chose to SLI
3. Why 1333 Memory when 1600 would be faster - is at least 6GB RAM vs 3GB?
4. Is it a Vanilla 280 as the SSC Edition was for sale for $389 after MIR

Yeah I don't know...got to go with EE on this one! Don't really see a great deal.

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

My System Specs


Bastards even charge you for the assembly and configuration...

Cheaper ram, 1600 just makes sense you're bound to upgrade and if you intend on overclocking you'll want the headroom and performance

Yes RJ thats a vanilla version same as mine the poor overclocking vanilla version.

The PSU is more than enough to run this system, but you'll end up upgrading and selling that as soon as you add another videocard or overclock the system.

Sorry the more I break this bundle down the more I don't like it and don't see it being a wise choice in terms of value in any sense, longterm or short.
