      Sure nothing special, older Tech stuff but nothing super horrifying either. The X3 Rana is a decent part to start any entry build, and a Gigabyte 760G mobo a good backbone for discrete graphics later down the road. One 4Gb stick, wish that was two allowing dual channel, but a matching Kingston can be a upgrade down the road. A Hard Drive!... Finally prices are down enough to offer that. The case is nice enough nothing offensive, but that rear 80mm fan would replace upon building it. The PSU not on any top five for a low watt builds (it's a dual rail?), but it should be better than the HEC, Logisys, or Apex stuff they normally straddle them with.

      While I'd contemplate the price could be lower by $10-15... to really say its' Hot! Although for not working any rebates it's still a respectable bundle for a good price! Could be a quick start for an entry gaming box for a young teen, which you might eke-by with a 7750 on that PSU.
