    How much is this? I would suggest building it yourself because it is cheaper. If you really need it prebuilt, I would suggest [URL="http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Intel_Z87_Core_i5_Configurator/w/174840"]this[/URL] and [URL="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008RM235I"]this monitor[/URL]

    If it has to be that pre built system you have listed, I would say its lopsided. No need for a $330 i7 when a $230 i5 will work just as well for gaming. You could take that extra $100 saved and put it towards a GTX770 or something comparable. And please dont get a 19" monitor. You will regret it almost instantly. 24" screens are dirt cheap and easy to find nowadays and about the sweet spot for PC monitor sizes. Dont get anything smaller than that.

    To be fair, building your own PC is actually really easy to do. There are a ton of guides and videos online such as [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_56kyib-Ls&feature=youtu.be"]this[/URL].

    Also, you can just get this: [url]http://pcpartpicker.com/p/16HfG[/url]

    Yes, it comes with one. You can buy an Hyper 212 EVO if you want a better heatsink.
