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
yeah, when I built this rig I hadn't touched a computer part in the better part of 14 years or so, was interesting, aggrivateing, and gratifing all at the same time... no horror stories to speak of, other than installing psu upside down (twice) and a cable bouncing off gpu fan till I zip-tied everything.... lol
i would highly recomend the diy thing

m-ATX board? Waste of money. Literally, get an at least 2-way SLi/CrossfireX so that if you ever want to upgrade your gpu, add in another card.
And please TX3 isn't quite what you should be looking at. Go for H50/H70 or at least V6 GT if you want to overclock that beast of a cpu.

Thats my 2 cents.

+1 for diy

You can easily get a computer much better than those specs for less money. They add quite a bit for labor to build the computer cause people don't know how and don't wanna learn. It's simple to do and allows you to upgrade easy later.

is sli/crossfire really all that it's cracked up to be for the average pc-gamer? some games arent even sli/xfire compatible , I belive, i could be wrong, but in some cases a single gpu will out preform 2-way sli/xfire, under the right circumstances that is....
again, I could be wrong....

for me, I see no need to sli, which is why I went with the single gpu, on a mATX board

Almost every game worth playing is at least a little compatible, meaning it's coded to make an improvement in performance with multiple cards. Sli or crossfire is mostly for people that want to have the absolute max settings on games and still get 60 fps. Some single cards can do this too, but only the really expensive ones.

wow this post alone has convinced me to abandon cyberpower and build it for myself. The comp in the first link is much much better than the one on cyberpower for similar prices... But since I am building it myself, it'd be nice the total cost would be limited to approximately $1200. The build in the first link is slightly over $1400 with Windows 7 premium.
I think I could definitely go with the i5-2500k over the i7, because even though i7-2600k is better overall, I only plan to game with this pc so I don't think I'll really be taking full advantage of the extra hyperthreading capabilities for an extra $100. The bad part of swapping the 2 is I lose the combo deal bonus which means I only save $16 >_>. I don't know if there are better combo deals out there on newegg, since the combo section of newegg doesn't seem to have the best search function.

How would taking the combo from the second link, buying a gtx 570 for $319.99 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130613), and windows 7 premium for $189.99 be? Total price is $1069.98. P8P67 is looking good in online reviews, and I don't really have much plans for utilizing SLI or Crossfire anytime soon. The price also leaves plenty of room for any aftermarket fan. What do you guys think?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...t=Combo.638283
This deal looks good too, sabertooth P67 is a fairly good mobo from what I've seen, has the i5-2500k, and will be similarly priced to the other one with gtx 570 and windows 7 added. I don't know if that 650W PSU will be enough if I do end up OCing though.

..upon closer inspection both of the PSUs in these combos seem terribad :/ What kind of PSU would I need to safely OC the core and possibly the GPU and what are some reliable brands or specific PSUs?

I'd recommend a Corsair PSU, I have a Tx-650W and it runs a gtx 580 just fine. Get the OEM version of windows 7, its only $79 on sale now. Also the sabertooth mobo is really good, but there are cheaper ones that are good too, I have an MSI p67 that was like $120. Oh, and unless you are looking to OC that ram, you can just get a basic G.Skill 2x2GB set for $30.
