Default Rate this prebuilt

Hey all, me again. How does this prebuilt look, performance to price ratio.
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16883229080

Edit: I would buy another 9600 gt or buy 2 260's in the future.

Yes I can, keep in mind I live in Canada, so prices are different.

Eh, not that great. I wouldn't say it is overpriced by $500....maybe $200-$300 overpriced.

yeah its def overpriced but not too bad really compared to some others ive seen...You would be better off building your own but if you don't feel comfortable then thats really not "that" bad of a deal...Do you guys have craigslist in Canada?? There is always a ton of good deals on there here but Im not sure if you guys have it up there or not... Its too bad you didnt live in US id sell ya mine for a cheaper than that so i could build my Phenom II 955 BE rig sooner...

That's not a bad deal for a prebuilt system. Video card is a bit weak, but it's a decent starting point.

iBUYPOWER ships to Canada, but it aint cheap. They charge $95 for shipping to Canada.
