$80 CPU that can have better deal. AMD 8xxx CPU was on sale for same price and is magnitudes better during BF
$15 DVD R/W
4GB RAM? It's the same price as 8GB RAM, so why pay $50 for it when you can get an 8GB from a better company
$35 1TB HDD
$30 Case (
You can get better parts, and self choose your case, RAM, CPU etc.
Considering you have to go through a rebate, I wouldn't say its a good deal
You can get an Fx-8xxx for $80? $35 1TB HDD? What vendors?
I went on Pcpartpicker and found out that the bundle costs less (after rebate of course) than picking parts.
Maybe I'll buy better parts to replace some of the bundle items.
Then I'll save the rest to make something crappy, maybe...
Even though there's more customization from self pick, it does cost more...
