whoa - why wouldn't I be able to overclock it. that's the reason I sent back the xps 720 I originally had from Dell - the BIOS was locked. this is an eVGA mobo, so I should be able to access the BIOS, right?!?!

Maybe.. I've heard of some companys locking certain settings in the bios. You won't get much of a OC on that PSU anyway.. The wattage of that PSU is borderline for that system, and on top of that its a cheap PSU.. meaning the amps are probably very low. You will probably get PSU problems if you OC.

You might want to look around on this forums marketplace, you should be able to find a good deal on a Q6600, a good Power Supply (I found a great Thermaltake Toughpower 700W on here for a great price ), and there are always 8800GT's floating around for sale on here. As for the case I would recommend a Cooler Master CM690, they are not to expensive and they are excellent cases.

I doubt it will be locked but it is a possibilty. ive done the buy from a company vs. building it my self thing before. no matter the company it is always been cheaper and a better experiance building it myself. and like everyone says, spending over a grand on comp just to have cheap psu and case is just silly.

DO NOT buy from Cyberpower. They are a bad, bad company. Build it yourself - you'll save money and gain experience. Also you can deal directly with individual companies for tech support of their product, not cyberpower reps that don't speak english and don't know a jack about computers.

Edit: their bios are not locked. They aren't Dell

I'll be an echo here:

Don't buy from this company, buy the parts yourself on Newegg and build the computer from scratch. Nothing to lose except money, and you sure will gain a lot in understanding computer stuff.

did you start with the "gamer infinity sli ultra" model? I think if you just use the basic configurator, it ends up being like $200 more than if you start with the sli untra and configure from there.
