    So, I am buying a PC and I found a great one, but I am not sure about the price, can you tell me if the price is good or not?
    Here are the specifications
    Processor : Intel Core i7-4820K Ivy Bridge-E Quad Core 3.7 GHZ
    Graphics Card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX770
    Hard Drive : 2 TB
    Ram : 16 GB
    Water Cooling
    Comes with Razer Headsets, Mouse and keyboard
    Price is 1859$ including shipping
    Is it worth it?

    4770k has similar performance and it doesn't require LGA 2011 mobo(which are more expensive).
    1900$ with no SSD? No, thx.

    ram overkill,770 sucks next to 280.

    for 1800 i build a machine 3x the performance of this one.

    {4770k,290x and 16gb/8 RAM and a 256gb ssd and 1tb HDD and much more)

    I noticed you said buying? Why not build one, it takes no more than 20 minutes in real time and is a lot cheaper.

    As for the build if this is for gaming then find one without the friggin' workstation CPU and get the 4670k along with any ASUS mortherboard. The ram can be lowered to 8GB and that will make room for an SSD or something. Then change that graphics card to a 280x and you're ready to go

    You'll never need 16GB of RAM. Also, you won't see any boost in performance (FPS) with an i7 over an i5.

    Well..Some people enjoy making videos regardless of how many YT view they have.
    That's true, for gaming 8 GB is more then enoough.
    He can go with 4670k or AMD CPU, 8 GB of RAM if he's only going to play games..

    Since it's a prebuilt computer, it's obviously not worth it, but the fact you forgot it includes 3 Razer peripheral devices.

    Sigh.
    Like it matters, yes, I know I could Multi-Quote, but I didn't so ya.
    Razer's overpriced stuff. I'd rather buy cheaper peripherals and spend more on internals.

    Your build is more expensive than his if you take out the peripherals
