Is this a good value pc?


Standard Member
Hi, I've been looking for a pc for about £550. Scan are doing a "today only" deal, until the third of May with the following components:

Coolermaster CM 690 II Lite, Black, Mid Tower Case w/o PSU

650W Coolermaster RS650-ACAAE3-UK GX, 80 PLUS, 85% Eff', SLI/CrossFire, , EPS 12V, 120mm Fan

Intel Core i5 2500K Unlocked, 1155, Sdy Bridge, QuadCore, 3.3GHz, GPU 850Mhz, 6MB Cache, 95W, Retail

MSI P67A-G45 (B3), Intel P67, S 1155, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 2133, Xfire, SATA 6Gb/s, SATA RAID, ATX

1TB Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3, SATA 3Gb/s, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache, 8.9ms, NCQ

8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.50V

Pioneer DVR-S19LBK 24x DVD±R, 12x DVD±DL, DVD+RW x8/-RW x6, RAM x12, SATA, Black, Retail Labelflash

£461.99 including VAT. I'm aware that I'd need a GPU and an operating system on top of that, which would bump up to about £500. I'd be using it for mainly image editing and a little gaming (mostly WoW).

Am I missing anything? Is this a good deal?
