Okay, so no fancy box and not heatsink. I actually recall hearing that somewhere, now that you mention it. Makes a lot of sense. Seems like a good deal to me! I mean, who on this website uses the stock heatsink anyways?

Also only has a 1 yr warranty vs 3 years with retail boxes.. means all the mass-built pc's only have 1 year and then they can forget them..

Though with a reliable product, thats not such a big issue..

Love the 600t white for looks..

Think your mad to go for that processor (unless you really are doing allot of video editing and rendering)
As someone else said already... you could pop in 3 680's instead of 1 for the same budget.. Or get 2 680's and a new IPS screen..

Just something to think about.

If your serious about going to 2 GPU'S (SLi) in the future you shouldn't even be considering a "Mid Size Case", trust me...go with a Full Size tower.....no brainer really.

but a full tower will make some difference if you want one. Not a HUGE difference between the 2 sizes.
