Ok just for starters, yes I'm well aware that building it myself is a lot cheaper. I've helped build a couple in the past but quite honestly I just want to configure what I want and be done with it. PI can afford to shell out a little extra with tax money coming in. Plus if something goes wrong it won't be my problem. Maingear has a reputation for great customer support from what I've read.

I've already narrowed my choices down to 2 builds. Just trying to get some input on which would be the better machine or better value. I play a wide variety of games but lately with all the DX11 games coming out I'm behind the curve with the ol' crusty GTS 250.
