      Combo comes with 8GB not 4GB and there is a $20 rebate on each 4GB memory stick. So the deal is actually $20 dollars cheaper with $50 in rebates total

      Seems decent enough for just $234, I mean it's got concessions, but it would let you install an OS.

      That Thermaltake cooler is a fail for that 95W CPU, while you'll need probably the two 80mm for rears And that can be a challenge to find some good pusher that are super noisy but use a controller. Then you'll need a 120mm in the front. The ASUS M5A78L-M LX Plus is a 760G board don't let the 78 in P/N misslead, but it takes up to a 125W CPU. Back on the Thermaltake (CL-P0503) CPU Cooler and its 70mm Fan... Thermaltake states for up to 65W TDP, so I wouldn't even install it. Then that case again... at 7.2in width overall I wouldn't think most 160mm tower cooler will fit. I'd look to pick up a Xigmatek LOKI SD963 92mm as its 153mm tall, while they provide the backing plate that works a four point Intel mount design for rock stout hold.

      Last part is the OEM 450W PSU it's probable adequate to start and I'd believe it would have at least a PCI-E 6-pin, so with it a nice R9 270 (non-X) would be the most I'd try running on that.

      For some fans, a $20 CPU cooler and $170 for a graphics this would give great BfB at like under $450 you have a decent mainstream gaming machine. Then add a nicer and efficient 550W PSU ($30-40) to OC the CPU/GPU and it has a ton of aptitude and value.

      Might need something to install the OS onto... unless I am missing the hard drive in the listing.

      Missed that... another $50-60 min... so with $500 I might do better on my own. Because just to do the two rear 80mm right it's like $25 for fans, grills, controller, splitter...

      I'm more incline to go nowadays with the AMD FM2 socket even for a gaming build. Work from a X4 750K 3.4GHz 100W Quad-Core - Black Edition for $80 and the MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 A75 (Hudson D3) for $60. I can stay at $500 even with the R9 270 (non-X). Get a great case, sweet 530W 80+ PSU, 8Gb of 1866Mhz menory, HHD, DVD/CD the works
