800 is actually pretty budget for a gaming pc. Usually a good one goes above 1000

How does this only cost 543! This looks better than a 1500 dollar rig

Looks like there is a lot of case modding that isn't included in the price. I am assuming that that was done by the builder. Not a reference to this build in particular, because it looks solid, but I have seen some really pretty builds with high price tags that don't preform.

I really like this and am curious if you could use the " Can You Run It " system requirement checker and benchmark if it can run the following titles?. Screens please :)

Squad Hell Let Loose Insurgency Sandstorm Grand Theft Auto V Rising Storm 2

Sorry. I sold after one day and didn't get a chance to run the "Can you run it" system requirement. I can tell you from previous builds with the 2600 and 1060 6b that it can run GTA V at about 70-90 fps.
