    ?

    Didn't they know performance in advance? And they still built it? Best buy should be selling it

    Plenty of people don't use the internet to review a product before purchasing.
    They are usually the same people who buy pre-built PCs.

    They will probably move a lot of these if they are marketed right.
    All they need to point out is that it is 8-cores and 3.6ghz stock, and overclocks well.
    Then it will sell itself to people who are impressed by big numbers.

    That's quite the new Storm case. I like it a lot.

    the thing is, unless i'm missing something - a price like that with the components used, and a legit windows license is not possible for the average enthusiast-builder. you need to have bulk suppliers for that price, no?

    even with cheap mobo and ram, the cpu gpu and windows alone will near $500?

    EDIT:

    They have 75$ shipping charge

    576$ features the 115$ chip... We can easily replicate this
    The case is an Elite 430 40$, the mobo is a 95$ one, 4GB RAM is 23~24$, 80$ GPU, 100$ OS (you can get it at 80~85$ if you look hard enough, if you have MSDN/Techplus or wtv its called its free, if you are a student its like 30~40$), Some BS PSU worth 20$, a 55$ HDD, some 15~19$ DVD burner and a 60$ Asetek 510LC. All theses prices are shipped and without MIRs (there is a 30 MIR in all possible I think). Worst case scenario, it is 530$ for the same PC vs 650$. 120$ savings.

    If you don't need the OS their price is 492$ + 75$ = 567$, us its 430$. That's 137$ saving. That's 31~32% price-premium over build ourselves.

    We can also upgrade the PSU and GPU without BS price premiums.

    If that 75$ shipping wasn't there, the price would be OK, but with it, it's a pretty average price...

    Not at all impressive, simply marketed to those who don't have the time or the ability to build their own computer better for the same price.

    Only for people who can build their own. For someone who can't, it's cheap, because they're paying for the assembly as well.

    Remember this is a PC with a 20$ PSU. If choosing your parts isn't needed, a Dell or Best Buy PC will be the same price, hence "average" price

    If it's a gaming pc, it would do better with a Phenom II x4 980 or a Thuban, assuming you want to go AMD. :)
