They’re alright. You would do better with an i7 Quad-core.

    I had a full summary written, but this looks like it’s taken off of CyberPowerPC. If you made it there, then check the forums. There is a great community that has boughten from them and can help you and respond to your inquiries faster than I. It is a good PC, however 500watts is very little power supply. If you do go to the forums, tell them LostDragon said hello for me.

    i would recommend a ssd for a boot drive, as well as a sound card like ASUS brand, very nice. regarding ultimate and professional, the only difference is with ultimate you can super lock the hard drive with encryption and its the only version of windows with the ability to choose different language packs. i would also recommend at least a 650/750 corsair ax power supply for future expansion in the graphics area. good gpu though

    Woried that the motherboard as an older Z68 does not support the PCIe 3.0 of the graphics card and will hold it back. You would do much better with a Z77 or even a Z75 motherboard (Z75 gives up Intel HDD acceleration via a small SSD).
    Otherwise, consider changing the graphics to an HD 6870 or a GTX 560 which is PCIe 2.0 based and does not lose anything to the motherboard data transfer.
    Win 7 ultimate really only adds foreign language support and brings maximum memory above 16GB, and since you are at the proper 8 for gaming and should have 2 slots for another 8, 16GB is more than enough and Win7 home premium should be sufficient.
    I would either upgrade the motherboard a little more or change the Graphics card.
    In an HD 6850, you may need a better PSU also.
    GTX 660 is a 140 watt card
    GeForce GTX 570 3624 $ 249.99 PCIe 2.0
    Radeon HD 7870 3395 $ 229.99 PCIe 3.0
    Radeon HD 7850 3263 $ 189.99 PCIe 3.0
    GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3234 $ 299.99 PCIe 3.0 (gaming closer to HD 7950)
    GeForce GTX 660 3168 $ 224.99 PCIe 3.0
    Radeon HD 6950 3055 $ 194.99 PCIe 2.0
    GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2987 $ 198.75 PCIe 2.0
    Radeon HD 6870 2831 $ 169.99 PCIe 2.0
    Radeon HD 6850 2746 $ 139.99 PCIe 2.0
    GeForce GTX 560 2718 $ 170 PCIe 2.0

    It is a nice build overall other than the CPU/GPU mismatching. It still functions, just loses some of its high rating on the GPU

    You can check their profit by looking up costs in pcpartpicker

    Here is a build based on Z75 MB, i5-3570K, HD7870
