okay first things first never listen to the guy that "helps you"
second of all whats the Operating System
Third do you have another computer? and if you do are you getting a new one because its slow? if you are just buy a flash drive and use it as ram for your computer

You should specify what i5 CPU, as there are a lot of different types. (Most of them have hyper threading)
The graphics card is meh, assuming it's a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS. The card performs at a G3D mark of 604. I have a GTX 560, which is at 3,052.
8 GB RAM is fine, although you should specify the RAM speeds.
The Raidmax Viper cases are sexy. Yep.
You should ask for what type of motherboard is being used and for more specific info.

Based on pricing from Newegg, most i5 CPUs are $200.
The 8800 GTS is around $100-120, although most aren't being sold by sites like Newegg.
The case is probably $60 minimum, up to around $100.
Other prices depend on type of RAM, Motherboard, Power Supply, and HDD.

Someone can prove me wrong, but I'm guessing you're getting a good deal.
You could play Battlefield 3, Skyrim, AC3, and Black Ops II at Medium-High settings, so basically it can run most games.
Game Debate is a good website to check if you can run a game.

If you decide to buy it, I suggest getting Windows 7 64-bit (youshouldpirate), as 32-bit can only use up to 3.25 GB of RAM, so the remaining 4.75 GB is useless.

So how much is this build and what website/store are you buying from?

Personally I like Win 7 better, because the new interface just sucks.

Kay, so I'm back from the dead and I'm gonna Necropost.

So basically, whatever computer or computer parts listed here is extremely primitive technology and I would highly recommend you do not listen to what these people are saying. They have no idea what they're on about.

My recommendation is to try to get your hands on a computer that is not run through primitive binary technology (A.K.A. the standard PC or Mac). I would highly recommend that the computer is run purely based upon the quantum coding or, otherwise known as a quantum computer. Through the use of the quantum mechanics, the speed of which the processing goes at is incredibly fast where a standard PC/Mac is a tortoise and the quantum computer is the speed of a Neutrino. Running all series of Diablo, CoD, GTA will be an absolute breeze.

I hope you have considered what I have to say and wish that you make the right decision (mine). Thank you for your time.
