If you do this then you void the warranty, That means everything, but your new power supply and GPU are trash if something goes wrong.

Are you able to find specs for the PSU? Asus website isn't any help.

a 300 dollar processor + 300 dollars in parts i dont particularly like and to be honest 6600 is just as good as 6700 for all intents n purposes (graphics card cash).

Such an ignorant comment. If u can install the psu and video card and something breaks later, u simply put the old one back in before u have the PC "fixed".

I would never trust these pre-built "big box store" PCs to last. Especially if you add a new PSU/GPU. These towers aren't designed to maximize airflow... and adding in a high-end GPU (+ PSU) will just add even more heat inside the box. Also, a shortage of expansion bays limits multiple drives from being installed down the road.

The components are cheap too. Performance difference is minor, but failure rates are higher.

Save yourself a headache and do one of two things:

1) Wait for a deal on a custom built PC (like CyberPower PC). It's a tad pricey, but deals pop up every now and then. You'll get to pick QUALITY parts and they're typically very well built (components tightly seated, organized cables, etc.)

OR

2) Do the research and build your own.

I agree with most that you say. Except from my experience the psu that people add will probably have a much better exhaust setup and just run cooler in general. I would bet my life that more times than not upgrading the psu on these prebuilts will only be a benefit and not a negative at all unless they replace it with a equally cheap psu
