It's $400 if you were to buy just the GTX 760 and i3-4330 yourself, so you can decide whether the rest of the package is worth $300.
no

oem parts do not cost the same as aftermarket parts, even though you may want to compare them that way - but from a hardware standpoint its just not the same thing

they are manufactured and regulated differently, and that is why they cost less

Yeah, no shit... That makes zero difference to the end user, though. You either buy the parts individually from Newegg or wherever, or you buy them from an assembler like CyberPower. If you have a source for OEM parts where you can buy them at the same price they pay before they sell them to regular people, good for you, but you have no business calling it a crappy deal if there is no way to get a better price for the same exact thing in the actual consumer market.
