No.
Asrock motherboard - no.
No brand of HDD stated.
No brand of optical drive stated.
and NO brand of PSU stated!!
Also there is no 12Ghz CPUs either. He is incorrect in multiplying the cores. It's just 3Ghz.
Go to a reputable computer shop - Computer Lounge or Playtech for instance. Proper warranty as well, not some half assed 1 yr crap.
And proper advice from people who know what they are talking about.

Yes. Owned by ASUS. But not ASUS and not the same quality.
Avoid.
