I bought this computer last week to replace an aging one I built myself 6 years ago (i7-950, GTS450). I'll defer to others about how good of a deal this is, but I can speak confidently to the quality so far and some things that stood out:
- This thing is quiet. My old computer had a ton of fan noise and this thing is almost silent.
- I'm not a huge gamer, but did download the free Ghost Recon: Wildlands that comes with it and played for about an hour with settings at 1440p and highest settings - it didn't miss a beat and performed perfectly.
- Warranty - it is nice to know that you can bring it in and they can fix it in store. The sales associate also does repairs and said that most of the time they don't try to repair a failed part, they just swap in a new one from off of their shelves in a few minutes. They commit to resolving it withing 48hrs.
- No issues at all - build quality is solid, everything works as it should.

It was $1099 last week and I'm filing my price drop guarantee today (which they will honor if it drops further withing a specified time period) and thought that was a deal. I'm happy to answer questions about it if I can.

Not sure if a troll but giving the benefit of the doubt here is a Legit breakdown. The GPU+ CPU+cooler (7600K doesn't come with one) is going to be ~$585 (assuming no tax and the current Zotac 1070 sale price). The MSI mobo is $125, the RAM will run ~$100. The SSD is another ~$130. Windows 10 is another ~$95. That brings to $1035, and that still doesn't include the Burner, Case,PSU, Kb+Mouse. Tbh for the price i think its a solid deal.

What grabbed my attention was the newer i5-7600k @3.8GHz Kaby Lake (2017) processor in combo with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 for under $1000. It's so new the Powerspec website doesn't even list the G314 yet, still the G313 with the i5-6600k @3.5GHz Skylake (2015) processor. Less critical, but I also liked the 16GB DDR4-3000 RAM (vs 2133) and the bigger SSD, and was hoping for SDers thoughts on that particular system board.

I'm not a builder, which is why I posted to share the find and get opinions. The immediate down votes and max1001's comments are confusing when that similar G313 config got 110 upvotes after its price hit $999 in August, 2016:

Woke up intending to head over to Microcenter and make a purchase, but now I'm not sure what's going on. I thought all of the pertinent information was posted correctly. Am I missing something? Was I being trolled? Confused

CPU+GPU is $550 and the rest of the part are no where close to $450.

With Ryzen hitting $250 recently and GTX 1080 was $420 last week I don't see how this is a deal.
assuming your $550 is correct (too lazy to confirm on mobile)

$130 for 480gb SSD, $100 for legit OS, $30 for case $30 for PSU, $60 for ram and $100 for(the included) MOBO.

That brings us to the $450 difference.

I'm not buying it as i just built a ryzen but just pointing out the prices to keep in mind for this one. it's a close call if you want Intel.

All those prices you quoted see MSRP. This isn't MSRP deal.

Not really MSRP, they are all based on current deals/prices. Most notably the Zotac 1070 Mini and a $10 Windows 10 rebate. If someone wanted to spend weeks to months waiting on specific parts to go on sale then they would STILL be hard pressed to beat the $999 total of this deal, which is available right now.

RAM ain't $60 at 16gb. That's like a once in a year slickdeal, if even that. A slickdeal is $80.

LOL $60 for 16GB DDR4 3000mhz RAM? Maybe last summer at a SUPER slick price but now? No way.

I got 2x8GB DDR4 2133 mhz at $52 last year and even that would be impossible to get now

Honestly, it's an okay deal.

I wouldn't call this slick. I can find some higher quality parts for cheaper when compared to the parts from the list below. I tried to make the cheapest build that pcpartpicker let me that matched as closely to the build of the PowerSpec above.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Hw3T3F

But if someone wants the nice warranty and doesn't want to build it themselves, this is pretty good.

i always wonder why people post microcenter's powerspec computer literally every month when it's the same price and never changes. yes it's a good deal, but slickdeals isn't a "monthly reminder notification" forum

Which GTX 1070 card was in this build stock?
What model 480GB SSD did this come with and in what format? (i.e. Intel, 2.5", m.2?)

Thanks for the info in advance!
