I have been looking all over for the best deal on a prebuilt and I found this can anyone tell me what they think?

on the amazing deals section I found a pc for $949 I5, Gtx 970, 8gb Ram, 120gb SSD (I would change to the crucial mx100 heard good things about it.) 1tb hard drive, Blue Ray burner, and Sesonic 620w power supply.

is this a good deal? I thought the site was a little ehhh.. but they accept paypal so that makes me feel better? anyone have any thoughts?

I would never trust a PC builder who only has a .tk domain, only accepts PayPal, and posts dodgy adverts on web forums.

Website looks like it was built by a 4 year old.

Gmail email address for the contact.

Avoid avoid avoid. PC you quote is overpriced anyway IMO.

Nope, if you think the site is "ehhh" go with your gut and pass.

"this f that wasn't cool enough, you also get access to the more than 170 free games currently on steam. (how many free games did you get with that PS4?) Of course there are also 1000's of free games from within window's a secret many console gamers don't know." this is telling me what this dude is selling is beyond shady.

As both people before me have said that it looks dodgy and I totally agree. A PC builder that does not own his own domain should set alarm bells ringing on it's own. The system you asked about is overpriced by a couple of hundred dollars if you price it up on sites like new egg. If you have some common sense and access to you tube you can build your own PC and save your self a fortune. I assume as you have signed up to ask about that site that you either do have some common sense or your just advertising that site. Either way I have removed the link just because we do not want to send people to such a site.

Considering I just tried to go to the site and got malware threats blocked repeatedly by my browser, yeah, don't even touch that with a 10 foot pole. That's terrifying and spooky. Only accepting PayPal is another thing.

As for the build, it really depends on the i5 and such, but it isn't the best cost. You can probably find better for cheaper, or just build your own. If you don't want to, it's not a bad idea to have some computer place you know build it for you. That's what I did with mine, since I didn't wanna screw up my first build

Thank god .tk seems to have dropped from favour.

Still one of the most spammy domain names ever.

Lol at Gizmodo clone being the top.
