I have to agree with Stoanee. The system you build have some crappy part ( likethe PSU and ram ) the one he build you is solid and around the same price ( priec match at NCIX to save more ) It will be much more reliable over time and easier to sell in future if you want to go to other thing.

My case, mobo, vid card, speaker and psu picks are better quality than your initial choices. DVD and OS are fine. This will run you +- $1800. By shopping the sales and pricematching you could save $
