CyberPowerPc vs D-I-Y PC - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I know the people in the forum are very happy to build their own pcs.
But let me tell you something.
I went to PC part picker website. And I picked out all the parts that I'm "thinking" about
Having cyber power PC build for me ( haven't decided yet )
The cyber power PC is almost exactly the same price as the invididual parts. It's only slightly more.
And the warranty you get from cyber power is 3 years not 1.

Now I'm not saying to not build it yourself. That's a lot of fun and very satisfieying.
But I personally have built well over 200 PC's and it gets old. Everything is your responsibility.
You might get good parts in the mail but you might Install something incorrectly or you may
Not handle the parts correctly and damage something. Or you may get a few parts that are defective. You have or RMA everything yourself. Dealing with individual component manufacturers. When you get a pre built everything is under warranty from one company.
It just simplifies the process.

But good luck with whatever you choose to do. Have fun.
Happy time PC.

CyberpowerPC is about $200ish more than a build you make yourself provided you buy things on sale.

A big problem with them is their SSDs are really old last gen stuff and their "standard" PSUs are crap. Their CPU cooling is only closed loop liquid (Asetek/Corsair/Thermaltake) or 212 Evo basically.

A lot of people forget to factor in the OS when comparing. Generally (not always) prebuilts under $800 are cheaper, and DIY over $800 is cheaper.
