Yeah, definitely. Especially with the big monitor, that's a great computer.

Well, if you are unexperienced in building, that seems like a pretty good deal.

However, if you are comfortable with building your own system, you might get a better computer for about the same price, if not less.

Doubt it. That monitor will run you at least $350. Plus a Q6600, 3 gigs of RAM, the graphics card, and a 500 gig hard drive...
It would be at least $1200 to build that I'd say, and you don't get a warranty on a built computer.

It's really a great deal, I'd get it if I were looking for a new PC.

Oh, well, I guess I was just thinking outside the box, if you know what I mean.

Ok, I would say buy that PC. That is a really good deal for a high end system.

Intergraded or not, it's still a radeon HD 2600 which will be good enough for gaming built in or not.

You can still upgrade. It'll play WoW like a a dream, but Crysis it may have a tougher time with. It'll be playable at medium or low settings though.
