Pre-Built Suggestions?

post #1 of 2

Hey all,

Im really foreign to buying a computer thats already built, opposed to building my own. So these two companies i really dont know about, they are: CyberPower and iBuyPower. is there any one you particularly recommend? The 3 that im deciding on are here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006736%20600030537&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=10%7C83-229-283%5E83-229-283-TS%2C83-227-386%5E83-227-386-TS%2C83-229-291%5E83-229-291-TS]

As far as the CPU goes- im using this computer mostly for a flight simulator (FSX, and MSFlight) which is an extreme CPU hog. So i was thinking somewhere along i7-2600k. For all the AMD people (I know virtually nothing about AMD CPU's) there is the AMD FX-Series FX-8150. How does that compare against the i7?

As for the rest of the build, is there any particular one you think is an awesome bang for your buck, or is there one that is completely overpriced for the stuff in it?

Out of those three, the first one. Why do you need a i7 anyways? It's not that useful for gaming. 2500k is a better option. Also you could always customize at the ibuypower website of you really don't want to build your own.
