For 1000 Euros? No. Simply overpriced for what you get.

What Impulse said. Also, build a custom rig, you'll save a lot.
Also, you might want to invest in an SSD because that shit's amazing.

As I stated before, I don't know much about hardware. Mine was picked by a friend.

I assembled (almost) the same PC at azerty.nl. It would cost 750 euros. An extra 60 euros for them to assemble and then an extra 25 euros of shipping costs to Belgium. Which leads to a grand total of roughly 835 euros. Still quite a bit of room left for improvements. You could easily buy a better GPU with the spare money you have left (also considering the GPU is 80 euros).

Small sidenote; azerty.nl is quite expensive compared to other webshops.

Too late, I bought it :|
But I'm really happy with it + I got a three year warranty.

Which you wouldn't have if you put it together yourself.

I'm looking for a new PC as well, but I think I'll look for a laptop instead (easier for me, since I'm always traveling between dorm and home).
Imp, got any good dutch sites that sell and ship cheap to Belgium? Belgian sites don't sell QWERTY keyboards, so I'm obligated to go to Dutch sites. However, if the shipping is extremely expensive, it's not worth the trouble.

Not a webshop, but more or less a comparing site with almost every Dutch webshop. Just choose the specs you want for your laptop and you'll have a list of remaining laptops. Click on a laptop you like for a list of webshops whom sell it (cheapost one on the top). Though you will have to check if each webshop ships to Belgium.
