Alright guys, basically what I am asking is if I should buy from Cyberpower even when they offer almost the same computer for the same price or cheaper!

Case:
Corsair Obsidian 800D

Power Supply:
Thermaltake TR2 RX-850 PSU (Don't know much about this PSU, 850 watt)

CPU:
i7-920

Motherboard:
Asus p6t Deluxe

Ram:
6 gig DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Dominator

Video Card:
ATI 5870

Hard Drive:
1.5 TB 7200 rpm 32mb cache

DVD Drive:
LG 22x DVDrw

CPU Cooler:
Asetek Liquid CPU cooler (don't know anything about this)


Total:
$1,796 + $354 for 2 SSD OCZ Vertex Turbo

New Total:
$2,150


Price off newegg (will note if I had to change something because they didn't sell it)
$2,258
What is different:
Powersupply: Same PSU but Thermaltake tr2 1000w instead of 850 (don't sell that particular one)

CPU Cooler: Don't sell this Asetek one, so I added the Corsair h50 instead ($80)

Storage Hard drive: Used Seagate Barracuda 1.5tb (same size,rpm,cache,etc but I don't know the brand they use in cyberpowerPC)


As you can see, not much is different between what I priced out on Newegg and what cyberpower offers. Newegg probably has a couple Combo deals going on with these, so it would be fair to take an extra $50 off. Cyberpower has free shipping and newegg is prob around $10-15 so not a big deal.


Anyways, what do you guys think? Is it worth it to take the risk of buying from cyberpower? Will they give me the parts I order? Or do they try to scam and don't ACTUALLY give you the p6t deluxe, etc. If something comes broken, can I trust them to fix it for me?

Thanks a lot.



If anybody thinks I could build a better gaming computer for ~$2,000 budget I would appreciate the input.

Here is what I don't need:
Operating System, Mouse, Monitor, Keyboard, Speakers, basically just need the case and what goes in it

Here is what I prefer/probably cant be convinced not to get:
A 5870 vid card, i7 CPU

I would still buy from newegg. Also, I would change a number of the above components in order to make a more balanced system. Finally, fill this form out, and it will be easier to help you out:

If you don't mind the extra cost, these provide excellent performance:

Edit: the F3 is the fastest 7200 RPM HDD, but is easily beaten by the Intel SSDs. And the SSDs destroy the Velociraptors.



Yea those r a little too much, though I was eyeballing these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

(OCZ Vertex Turbo) Only 30gig, but 2 of them for raid for windows and maybe a game or two.

Do you think it is worth it?

Thank you.

edit* didnt know that about the f3, thanks. i'll def. get one of those for my storage

Those are nice as well, wouldn't necessary go for raid, but if you can afford, it go for it.

Hmm, well if you were buying one right now, and you could choose between the 2 OCZ in raid, or the 1 intel to maintain your OS and maybe your "essential" programs, which one would you pick?

Thanks again, appreciate it.

2 OCZs in RAID, but I would start with just one and see how it suits you.
