You were a good friend and told him he'd be wasting at least a few hundred dollars buying from cyberpower, right?

Or do you not like him very much?

As for monitor, cut down on what you get him in the computer & get a decent monitor. After all, if he doesn't know anything about computers, there's no reason to go into overclocking. That's leagues harder (as in, it takes a tiny bit of effort) than building your own computer (which takes the ability to read and the manual dexterity of an 8-year old). The minimum I'd recommend in that (total system) budget area would be a Dell u2312hm.

If you're going to get a crappy tower, fine, but at least leave him with a good quality monitor!

while while we all will agree that building by hand will be best, sounds liek this guy isnt a Computer savy individual (the buyer) and does not want to rely on his friend for service etc. Buying through CyberPower should get him an all inclusive warranty instead of having to potentially send various parts across the world for RMA's and dealing with multiple Custoemr Service SOurces in the worse case scenario.

That is worth something, is it worth that much? Up to him to decide honestly.

I would probobly agree with doing the SSD at a later date, but the CPU Cooler should go up another level and I think the GTX 670 or ATI 7950 might be the better choice of GPU's right now.

Im just not a fan of the idea of the really low memory bandwidth

/facedesk

ahem, My friend wants it pre-built from a third party company that can take care of any problems it may have. Its his money not mine so its his choice not mine.

having that said I agree with the post above

although he will not be overclocking at all in the forseeable future and even if he ever does it will not be much. Also, he will be using a single 1080p monitor so isnt 2gb of video memory sufficient?

thanks!
post #15 of 64
Very well. If he must go with a terrible option, let's at least simply make it a bad purchase rather than cyberpowerpc mugging him in an alley and laughing all the way to the bank. Here's a summary for a much better configuration that comes to $1113 (dear lord that's a lot). The key part about this configuration is that it'll let you get a real monitor rather that the cheapest bad monitor you can find.

I heavily recommend one of the Korean 27" IPS 2560x1440 monitors (which is why I selected the 7950 for GPU, as it runs the same as the 660ti and is better at the larger resolution). If you decide to go small and go home on montior, and get a 1920x1080 resolution, the 660ti will be the marginally better choice. Check e-bay or the display forum for more details on the big 27" monitors, which should come to $325-$350 or so (they are found at ebay & microcenter). By getting a good monitor, things will seem very awesome, which is the point. At the very least, get a quality 23" like a Dell u2312hm (the Dell store is usually the cheapest choice).

This doesn't overclock, because paying even more to overclock when you don't even think you (meaning your friend) can BUILD a freaking computer is just plain weird. Also, overclocking is surprisingly not useful for just gaming.

You'll note the smaller power supply in the configuration below. The reason it wouldn't let you pick less than some ridiculously high wattage is cyberpower pretending overclocking takes that much wattage and ripping off their customers by not giving them a better option. If that sounds shady, well, you're the guy that went to cyberpowerpc. I'd hate to think what their warranty service is like.

I threw in a wireless USB dongle & made sure to select the "free" (lol, joke) keyboard, mouse & headset they offered. The Razer Abyssus is actually a decent mouse, so you're ok there. Cheapo speakers too, so it has everything but a monitor. Or an SSD.

This link should take you to the configuration pre-set. Check against the summary below:

Whew, i thought u were Facedesking cus of my post, I was like whaaaat?

well, depends on the games and if the monitor will only be 1080p

at 1080p the 660ti is fine. but Id still say it depends on teh games and if he likes alot of Anti Aliasing ;p

The Amount of memory in the GPU is not reallyt eh concern but the 192-bit memory interface hold the GPU Back a bit.Large Scale Games like MMO's might not like a card like that but a first person shooter should do well.

The Computer that was Just suggested is not half bad either.

I liek the addition of a Sound Card as it does remove some further CPU Usage and a great Powersupply too.

But I Know NOTHING about that Motherboard, it seems icky to me lol


Well dude I hope we were of some assistance ^.^

Feel free to keep asking and If I have any useful imput I will see whats up

The mobo is icky, lol. It's a non-overclockable small board. But the guy doesn't really need anything else. I suppose if he wants to move the sound card farther from the video card he could get a GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H for $20 more (note, NOT the similar version with an X in the product number, that's like $65 more).

I included the sound card half because its $20 after rebate, and so it's actually the correct price, with no added profit for cyperpowerpc, lol.
