You going to be using it for gaming or everyday stuff. For less you can build your self a good rig using the i5 quad cores K series.

I was going to mainly use it for gaming and doing some photo edits within Lightroom and some home video movie making.

Buy buy buy, you cannot possibly get a better deal than that. Where is this deal at anyways? Lol

Seriously its a sick deal. Most of those components are all under manuf warranty and are probably at most a year old, so what. Try offering 1500, they may take that. Cpu and mob alone are well over 800 dollars before taxes. Qaulity 200+ psu. And everything else is a bonus.

The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the 1080p monitor. I might be in the minority here, but IMO any monitor 24" or larger should be 1900X1200 at the very least.

Other than that (and it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me personally), looks like great components.

Replies look positive so far. In regards to the offer I had initially countered to his asking price of $2100 with $1450 and then $1600 so he's countered me with $1800 and I've asked for settling at $1700 waiting on his reply. Even $1800 I thought was good.
