    Honestly, you're better off buying each individual part, do you do anything other then gaming?

    I'll see what I can do.

    Fang III - Viper looks fine if you're not willing to build your own.

    My PC cost me about $900 so far, slightly better specs then theirs, but I'm also still upgrading mine.

    GTX 550 Ti, 16gb of RAM, i7 2600K, 2x 1TB Harddrive, 1 128gb Kingston-V SSD.

    Okay so, if you would rather build a computer, which would save you money, here's what I'd reccomend.

    GTX 550 Ti, or better, this graphics card is about $180, can play Skyrim on High, but it can't play Crysis on Max at higher then 40 frames, it handles wonderfully on SWTOR, and even an old computer can play WoW.

    i5, or an i7 Intel processor, I personally used the i5 for about a month, but when I started getting into coding, and leaning away from gaming all the time, I decided to sell it for about $150 (Costs about $200 normally) and bout an Intel i7 for $350.

    Hard drives are extremely overpriced ATM, so you really only need 500gb-1.5tb, I personally bought 2x 1tb hard drives before the flood happened, so I got them for their old price.

    RAM wise, I'd say 2 is absolute minimum, 4 is for a decent gaming computer, 8 is all you really need for gaming, 16 is overkill for what you do. (Even though 16gb of RAM is only $100 in Canada.)
