$1,400 for a PC is expensive even if you call it gaming or whatever else...

It's really not as terrible a price people are making it out to be. Here's a breakdown of the components at their approximate non-sale prices (mostly from Newegg):

i7-4770: $310
Phantom case: $100
Liquid cooling: $30 (I just made a conservative estimate on this one since it's not specified in the OP)
16GB PC3-12800 RAM: $130
120GB SSD: $80
1TB HDD: $60
GTX 770: $330
DVD-RW: $20
WiFi/Bluetooth: $20
Windows 8 OS: $100
Mouse and Keyboard: $30 (again, just a conservative estimate)
TitanFall: $60

Total: $1270

So you're looking at a $130 premium to put the system together. I know how to build a system and am patient enough to wait for the parts I want to go on sale so I would certainly never buy this but it's not an awful price for someone who doesn't know and is unwilling to learn or take the time to build a system.

I agree, better post a thread of a i3 case with low-end part for under ~$250 (you actually save nothing because if it is the true price) and people give you a medal than post a high-end pc where most people never buy although price is fair or actually save you somehow, all you get is this wave
I never give any one who tried to post a so-called "deal" a thumdown unless they post an iphone deal for $199 + 2 year contact

Dell XPS 8700
Power Supply: Corsair CX 750w modular

Paid $400 for the desktop after discounts.. Purchased the ($329)Graphics card, and ($64)Power supply separately.
You most definitely got a refurb, open box, or used item, so you cannot compare your "deal" to this one.

Right, no mouse and keyboard though, prices may be different about $50~$100 depend on personal preference of brands, but remember: you need to order from different stores, wait for shipping, inspect those parts, then putting them together, install windows, inspect all of those hardware, software, if pc die or not boot up go figure out yourself what wrong and deal with warranty policy bla bla LMAO
Right, I know we need save $$$ but people (companies) out there also need to make $$$ as well.
See $1400 and immediately blame OP is way too much, build yourself and see how much you can save and how much you need to wait, how good you can build and handle it.
I agree with what you're saying. You can pay $1400 up front and save yourself the time of waiting for a good deal on something. Most people don't see that.

But, I don't think this is good for $1400. I'd bet the power supply and motherboard would be of low quality.

I wouldnt call this a deal but its not a rip off I just build a i7 4770 rig and with good quality parts it was $900 with no gpu and 16 gb ram and 256 ssd. The big thing people forget about with pre built WARRANTY

Without knowing the brand or actual specs of the components (available ports on mobo, timings on ram) it would be hard to determine whether this deal is as bad as it seems.

I just personally built a 4770k rig with great components for a little over 1000. I was fairly patient for deals though.

What? Each individual part also has warranty.... wtf... its called RMA.

Also, since we're on slick deals, this is not slick.....so.....downvotes.
  • get a 4770k PM at staples for microcenter for 250
  • I've seen 16gb ram sticks for under 100 closer to 90 or 80 if you wait for the deals
  • 120gb ssd I've seen as low as 40 with the staples 30 off 60
  • 1tb HD also under 40 with staples 30 off 60
  • case ..... that case is ugly as hell to me, A nice $40 case is good enough
  • A good motherboard about $100-$140
  • 600w PSU for the 770 about $40 or $50 at the most
  • I've seen 770s for under 300 so...about $290
  • Get the OS from a reseller for about 20 dollars
  • keyboard and mouse you should already have....seriously if you're missing peripherals wtf...
Total everything up and I'm under 900 for a top of the line system. seriously this is not hard.

i have built a PC on AMD FX 9590 platform recently with 32 GB RAM and slightly lower graphic card (It will complement each other). It cost me under 1200 with an HD monitor and keyboard/mouse/Wifi and 250 GB SSD..
You can make the same PC for a much lower price if you keep an eye on Newegg,Tigerdirect, Microcenter, Staples, Frys, Best buy etc.

Lmao. No refurb no open box. This brand new sir. $699 at dell 3 weeks ago.

Here is the old deal for the non believers.

A warranty on each part is not at all the same, these machines are fully warrantied not only against a broke part but a malfunction of the machine within the time period. also your list of parts make it seem like all equipment is equal there are crap 5600 Seagate's with bad failure history and 7200 western blacks ram comes in several different speeds and maybe this case is ugly but some people want more ports and features then most $40 case can offer. $50 gets you a crap bronze psu. Building a cheap pc doesnt not mean its a good value pc. If you going to spend $900 and $300 on a gpu alone skimping on ram,hdd speed and psu which is a back bone is silly

*Smacks forehead. Right, I completely forgot about the power supply and motherboard in my total. If we're assuming low quality on both of those (let's say $20 for the PSU and $40 for the mobo), that brings the total non-sale cost to duplicate this build up to $1330.

A lot of PC parts actually have more than 1 year warranties also. 3 years on SSD's. 2 years on HDD. Lifetime on memory and video cards. 3 year warranties on Mobos and Intel CPU's.

I don't think it's fair to judge a PC deal by some of the lowest prices the components have ever sold at. Same goes with prices only available at places like Microcenter B&M, which isn't available to everyone. If you already have a keyboard/mouse, they still count toward the valuation and for those who care about obtaining an OS legally, nobody's selling a legal copy of Windows 8 for $20.
