Almost every component on every pc is sh**. you literally have to upgrade most everything from the ram to the cooler to the psu. and if you don't then you get crappy parts that may only work for bit or not at all. But that is what bothered me most. i don't know how to build a computer and if I am forking over 800+ for one of your preconfigured systems then I expect it to work and not be filled with crap so that I have to pay to upgrade everything.and then the cost is 1500+.

If for some reason you do go with CP make sure you post your build specs on the forum and people will chime in and let you know the crap parts to switch out.

so now I am on the route to building my own system. I will be getting quality parts for mostly the same price. I am using advice from this place and this

http://www.core-authority.com/

And the internet is a awesome place for info.

I hope this helps
This guy is so right, my friend who bought the system off CyberPower is currently in the process of replacing parts as he can afford to, so far he has bought a decent Corsair Power Supply, G.Skill Ripjaw RAM, a new CM690 case and a Silver Arrow cooler, he plans to replace pretty much everything during the next few months, all he'll have left from the original build will be the BD Drive, CPU and GPU.

Building your own saves you money in the long run without doubt, and you know exactly what you're getting.

Well, I recommend Cyberpower PC, I have a friend who's had no problems with his for 4 years.

Honestly, if a custom PC is what he's looking for, look for a place that builds custom PC's.

I learned the hard way it's not cheap to build for people. IE warranties, etc. It's hard to compete with someone mainstream. Just my two cents.

Just tell him to post his build specs on the forum. It will make sure he swaps out the crap parts and get a relatively good build

4 the most part it goes like this
1. chose a build with whatever processor you want (e.g. sandy, amd etc)
2. don't pay for extra fan
3. read the newegg reviews on the cases to make sure you get one with good airflow. The half 912 is the most recommended.
4. Ram - must upgrade or they will send you some no name. The upgrade options are kinston or dominatiors
5. Get a sata ll hdd for cost saving instead of sata lll
5. upgrade psu. They give crap go with a corsair or a cool master
6. you don't have to pay extra for cable management
7. you don't have to pay for extra cushion for shipping

Bugs, best thing as everyone said, build it yourself and ship it to your friend, that way you know all the stuff worked before getting there. Shipping it with fragile and enough paddings with anti-static bag over the tower. Saving your friend time and money both ways.

A friend of mine bought from CyberPowerPC before. Wasn't worth the money. They use lower-quality parts (some even refurbished) and you end up having to replace the parts eventually. There are plenty of tutorials online and as long as you deal with cable management, you can slap on a PC for about half the price and better build quality.
