Cyberpower or IBuyPower? - Page 5

post #41 of 60
Thread Starter 
Ok... clearly the input about these two companies is negative. Here's a price comparison for the rig I'm planning to build.
Specs:
Newegg
Q6600 GO Stepping
EVGA nForce 780i
Tuniq Tower
Raidmax Aztec Case
WD Raptor 150GB
EVGA GeForce 8800GT
PC Power & Cooling 750 Quad
Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800 2GB (2x1GB)
Windows XP Pro
Total Price: ~$1500
CyberPower
SAME as newegg, except...
CM Stacker 830
Thermaltake Toughpower 750
CM Hyper X2 Cooler
Corsair XMS2 Xtreme 2x1GB
No Brand 8800GT
Price: ~$1600/2=$800

AVADirect

SAME EXACT as newegg...
Price: ~$2000/2=$1000
I heard that AVADirect was actually pretty reliable. What do you think?

I think your build looks ten times better than the rig you built on cyberpower. To start, that corsair is horrible for overclocking, the hyper X2 is not nearly as good as the tuniq, evga is going to be a way better company to deal with than some no name company, and the pc p&c 750 quad is an amazing psu.

I heard that AVADirect was actually pretty reliable. What do you think?

Plus, evga has step-up program and probably a better warranty. What do you need to prove to get the discount? What qualifies as an "OEM".

Cyberpower has great prices and a lot of variety. You can have almost any kind of combination you want! If you want even more, build your own system. PM me if you want help.

Well, the policy is that I can't order individual parts and get the discount. It's supposed to be for a computer I need for work . I'm already pushing it as is.

Start a new thread and see if anyone can find the same items for less than $800. If not, then go for it. Like I said before, If you bought the prebuilt, sold the RAM, PSU and gfx card (or whatever is questionable) and had to buy better components after the fact, go for it. I agree that those sights are bunk, but $800 off is a deal no matter who it is from.


edit: I also think it would be interesting if you posted what you are getting and for how much, without saying where it is from, to see what people think, lol.
