Is this a good AMD Gaming Desktop to buy? - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
Like I said above...some popular games. I would like to get a good power supply so I could upgrade later with some newer stuff. The appeal of that PC was that a rep for iBUYPOWER said I could upgrade to the AMD HD6870 or NVIDIA GTX560TI later and either of those plays those game just great.

I've heard stories of people bringing back dirty underwear and getting a full refund for whatever reason they provided.

I myself brought a 6 month old vacuum cleaner back without any accessories, no box, essentially something that could no longer be sold, and they took it back with a smile.

Yup, you can keep feeding it ram and it will keep eating it like you're feeding it candy.

No, /thread
At that price point you could build your own 1090T build with a better GPU and a solid state drive and be within the same budget

When I built a system for my friend to use as a CS server from iBuyPower they half ass built it. No cable management, They didn't even mount the PSU in the case the right way, not to mention after 3 months of using it, I found they couldn't even put thermal paste on properly.

Your post just seems like such a troll. Let me get this right,

Mass orders from Cyberpower. Like, how many times do you need to get ripped off in one day? You must be talking less than 10 computers, but then why couldn't you just build them yourself and make that extra $800 that Cyberpower charges to put the parts together?

just to show how-much cheaper it would be to build it your self my system built December 21/2010 cost around $450 im from uk thats a approximate in us dollers

that price included a generic 15in lcd screen mainly use my 1080p tv though
Hard drives
500gb hdd + 2-80gb hdds + 1-40gb hdd
DVD drive
2-dvd RW
CPU
Athlon II x 4 640
Power supply
cit 480w PSU
CPU cooler
hyper tx3 cpu cooler
RAM
4GB ram 2x2GB
MOBO
foxconn A6GMV mobo wish i bought the foxconn A9DA-s
Case
generic capricorn Tsunami case that i cut up and moded
OS
win 7 ultimate 64bit oem
GPU
XFX HD4650 1GB not a bad card for the price

thats my sig rig cost me $450 /USD £200-£230 / GBP as i recycled parts from a system i decommissioned the only thing i wish i did differently is used the foxconn A9DA-s mobo and a better GPU

for $1000
you could have a AMD hex core CPU
a very good GPU
at least 8GB ram
a good looking case
and water cooling + around 1TB of HDD space
almost certainly a good quality 19in screen

as people said they will help you and give advice if you decide to build one yourself + you will save yourself some cash

if any one was wondering what the decommissioned system was it used to be a HP EVO D530 still have the mobo 2 GB ram for it and a Asus HD3450 GPU for it all still works so its a fall back system rebuilt it back in 2K5 kept it running until December 20/2010

He wouldn't really need a hex core cpu like the 1090T, most games wouldn't utilise all of the cores and you would be benefited if you do a lot of video rendering. You can get an x4 955 for cheaper and and see better performance for games.

As for the GPU I would have to recommend the 6850. Its relatively cheap and from my experience can play pretty much any game. If you feel like you need extra power you can either OC it and get similar performance to a 6870 or CF with another one at a later date.
