    I'd call that a good deal, since the i7-2600K itself is usually in the $300 price range. Video card seems a bit small with the 512MB, but it's not bad.

    I would say it's a nice one for sure, could use a few upgrades though.

    Hope that helps!

    Nice Proc, CPU cooler and sound card. Good Ram.
    GFX card, though, if you buy this rig, may want to keep it as a troubleshooting card and put in a diff. one for everyday use.

    Make sure to test before buying if you can.
