rate my cyberpower pc

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
EDIT: Based on the posts, I have decided to build my own computer instead....which I also need help on . Please see my posts in thread.


First post on these forums, please don't hesitate if I left out some info or something. I know most of you will tell me to build my PC instead of buying it from cyberpower but tbh I don't feel very comfortable doing that and as far as I could tell, buying all the individual parts from newegg did not save that much money at all. If you can build a better computer than this for a price difference of >$200, please go ahead and post it and I may be willing to build it myself. This PC is mostly intended for gaming. I have no intentions on utilizing SLI, although I might OC some parts if it's easy enough (probably the core and maybe the GPU).

Anyways, here are the specs:

Case: Zalman Z9 Plus Mid-Tower Gaming Case w/ Side Panel Window [+9]
Extra Case Fan Upgrade: Default case fans
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-2500K 3.30 GHz 6M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155 (All Venom OC Certified)
Venom Boost Fast And Efficient Factory Overclocking: Pro OC (Performance Overclock 10% or more) [+19]
Cooling Fan: CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 Gaming CPU Cooling Fan [-6]
Motherboard: [CrossFireX] Asus P8P67-M Intel P67 Chipset DDR3 mATX Mainboard w/ UEFI, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, 2x SATA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe, 1 PCIe x1 & 1 PCI [B3 Stepping] [+17]
Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1333MHz Dual Channel Memory [+10] (Corsair or Major Brand)
Video Card: * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB 16X PCIe Video Card [+177] (Palit Powered by NVIDIA)
Power Supply Upgrade: * 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready [+93]
Hard Drive: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD [+9] (Single Hard Drive)
Optical Drive: 24X Double Layer Dual Format DVD+-R/+-RW + CD-R/RW Drive (BLACK COLOR)
Sound: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
Network: Killer Xeno Pro Gigabit High Speed Online Gaming PCI Network Interface Card (free, why the hell not)
Wireless 802.11B/G Network Card: Zonet ZEW1642S IEEE 802.11b/g/n 300Mbps PCI Wireless Adapter Network Card [+29]
Internal USB Port: Built-in USB 2.0 Ports
Operating System: * Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit Edition)
Service: STANDARD WARRANTY: 3-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY PLUS LIFE-TIME TECHNICAL SUPPORT

for a total of $1309.
I was thinking I could probably skip out on the venom boost thing and just OC the core myself (if it's easy enough). Any suggestions on any of the parts is appreciated (especially compatibility or insufficient cooling for OC issues). If there are none, this will be the final computer I will be ordering.

I was kind of nervous when I put together my first build last week. I bought 2k in parts from newegg and I haven't built a desktop in 10 years. Watched a bunch of videos and stuff here and was able to get everything running like 3 hours from start to end. I was about to go the cyberpowerpc way too. Your build I say is pretty good but for $1300 you can get better.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...692062-_-Combo + windows, around $1300 and you get way better components and a board that allows sli with a gtx 570, I'd personally add a h70 or a d14 puts you at ~1400 and the OC thing in the new UEFI bios its literally a click of a button waste of 20 bucks if you do go the cyber powerpc route

i guess to put it into perspective, http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...679762-_-Combo, + a 560 and windows would only be 1100

Building a computer is a great experience. If you build your computer, you really understand all the different aspects of all the parts since you had to learn and research everything yourself.

^^Agreed, Way better for that budget, or at least that setup for less

^^this is a lot better computer then you have built there. Don't be nervous about building it yourself, I just built mine having no computer experience. Everything only plugs in one way and once you get the CPU cooler on and the motherboard mounted, everything else just pops in. You'll learn soooo much. There will no doubt be a few things that you'll get stuck on but youtube/OCN are always here to help!

+1 for building it yourself.
