    Maybe there is something I've missed.

    $970 shipped in the cart, $45 in rebates. I bet if you did some hunting you could find a spare optical hard drive cheap, better hard drive, the G500 cheaper, a better keyboard, and a Hyper 212+ heatsink to overclock some...and still be in budget. I think the orange Zotec 560 Ti + the Cougar case with orange parts would look kinda neat too, if he cares about that kind of stuff.

    Case with "550W" PSU for $50 spells nothing else but disaster. Keep clear.

    dude its a PSU that comes with the case....... It has NO active PFC and only 24A on the +12V thats not even enough to RUN the GTX 480... ARE YOU CRAZY? If you do not know what you are talking about please do not give advice cause that PSU could have killed his new system if he tries to use it.
