Did you already buy this, or just thinking about it?

Don't buy a system from cyberpowerpc or where ever that is from, you will get much more for your money if you do it yourself and you will learn a lot about your PC at the same time.

You can do better than that. Is your budget $850?

All of the parts have manufacturer warranties on them, and cyberpowerpc tech support is a joke, they just say they have it so they can charge you for it.

"MEMORY: 4GB (2GBx2) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory (Corsair or Major Brand) "

major brand?
Like The Cheap Shoddy RAM Co in Zimbabwe?

Generally systems like that are built with the cheapest component that fits the description . Wow! 800 MHZ RAM with the worst timings ever !

Have you guessed yet? Im with xthekidx on this . Build your own . Its not hard .

If you really just want a pre built system you can go to compusa.com and get their refurb gateway fx 6000 gaming series for $200 less ($750) and it will blow that away. Its an i7 based system with a 4850 video card....in fact you could add another 4850 in crossfire on it and still be under what that other system is costing you.
