Bad case and psu. a 960? really?? an optical drive? I know it's only an extra 15$ but still WTF??

psu is evga (good brand name) and the case is fine (though the side panel is floppy)

optical drive is because i assumed he/she would need it

I know all about PSU's and that's not a good one. Just because it's got evga's name on it doesn't mean it's good. The case is not fine actually. It is made poorly and bends (trust me I know this from personal experience) The backplate that holds up the gpu makes the gpu bend like hell if it's long. Only 2 internal 3.5" bays is never good. For cases these are better (some even cheaper).

a 3 year warranty on something with evga's sticker on it doesnt sound bad to me, if it breaks im 95% sure they would send another. also im not quite sure about the gpu bending (1 fan cards short) but it could more than just the case

Yea uhh I have no doubt they'll replace it but it's a huge waste of time when you could have spent a few bucks more and gotten a better one. Also While you might not be sure I am certain (it happened to me).
