My current sig rig actually came from CyberPowerPC. I bought it February last year. It worked right out of the box with all the drivers and software installed. I didn't have the knowledge at the time to build my own, so I went with an OEM. My only complaint was the very poor application of thermal grease on the CPU. There was so much it actually spread over the edge of the heat spreader.
I completely rebuilt the PC since then and with that knowledge I will definitely build all of my future PC's.
The problems I see now with the OEM's is the limited selection. They have a decent selection of mobo's, cpu's, and graphics cards. The cases, RAM, PSU's, and heatsinks are not that impressive.
I wont bash the OEM decision because you have to start somewhere. It was my first PC and I don't regret it, but will never go back.

They have decent parts in most instances, but they only sell cheap, gaudy cases and overpriced, unstable PSUs. I had an iBuyPower and it was good, but I would never trade the level of price - performance, and the learning experience, that building my own got for me.

Ya thanks, I should have made it more clear the first time that I have built my own PC (an old Pentium D), so its not a fear of building my own rig so much as the advantage of buying OEM (I get discounts for buying OEM). The total price of a fresh newegg build and a CyberPower built with virtually identical parts is about the same, but as I have said, the discount I will get is a big + for buying from the likes of CyberPower. From what I've heard though, either CyberPower or IBuyPower are not reliable choices. Oh well, love the feel of silicon in my hands anyway. Thanks again everyone.

I was under the impression it was the same company. Last time I checked there (probably 3 years ago) their sites were basically identical

Anyway you are better off building your own which I'm sure these 3 pages are full of. It really isn't as hard as most people think it is going to be. You just need to take your time and follow directions. There are a lot of good guides that tell you how to do this as well.

Edit: btw I had a friend that bought from cyberpower once and he never had any problems with it.

neither. Both can give you a great pc, but chances are it will show up a month late with some of the wrong parts. Read peoples reviews of them on the internet, my friend got one from ibuypower and it was great, and everything went fine, but I guess thats rare.

I ordered from cyberpower and it came a month late, the mobo was doa, it had the wrong gpu(they said the one i got was backordered which was why it was delayed, but they waited 3 weeks to finally tell me) and when I called them about it they said they were out of and weren't getting more of the one i ordered(so what did i wait for?), they didn't put in the extra fans I ordered, and have horrible customer service.

haha, i actually bought the rig in my sig like 4 years ago. got it through cyberpowerpc. loved it. had no knowledge of building a PC myself. they were an awesome experience for me. just yesterday i went back and "built" a pc on their site.. pretty much the only thing waayyy overpriced is the ram. ($500+ for ram i bought for $120) of COURSE i didnt buy it. just wanted to see price differences etc

haha of COURSE when you post here everyone is going to say build your own... and I say the same. Only because you can choose EVERY part (not a limited list like at cyber or ibuy) and make sure they are the parts you want. knowledge is power. you'll be much happier even though it really does require more work. its a tradeoff.
