    My computer is growing old, I built it about 6 years ago, and for the last few months it's been freezing and I have to restart it, and then it takes about 10 minutes or so to start up again, it's really frustrating. Once my computer is up and running after about 30 minutes, I've never had any problems with it freezing after that.

    Anyway, I was going to build my own rig, but I saw this deal at my local Micro Center, and am curious if this is a good purchase, seems like a really good deal :dontknow:

    I figure next year (maybe this year?) when nvidia comes out with it's new pascal GPU's I'll get one of those and replace it with the 970 that's in this.

    What do you use your computer for? That makes all the difference.

    Primarily as a media center for watching movies and I do play the occasional game, so I want this to be able to play current games, although, I don't need ultra max settings. One side note, I'll eventually be getting VR maybe the Vive or Oculus not sure yet, but I think by that time, I'll just upgrade to Nvidias new Pascal GPU and that should solve any problems with lag using VR.

    build your own and get this card. It blows my card away for $600. Good thing I have the MIcroCenter trade in program.

    No, but my last PC I built was just over a grand, and this is $1300, I don't mind spending an extra $200 just for convenience of a pre-built PC with a 1 year warranty.
