COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel i5 & Radeon 5850 or 5770

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I congifured a good computer with Radeon 5850 and i5 for about $1050 on cyberpowerpc.com. it seemed like a good deal to me but i want to see if newegg can build something better and hopefully cheaper. if not thats fine. I just need a good gaming build. thanks

i heard from some of these guys that cyberpowerpc are
tight and their shipments come broken

bundles

Well I live 30 minutes away from their headquarters so I didnt plan on getting it shipped. Im sure it wont be broken while in their shop...at least I hope...

Let's say I was building from newegg. Any suggestions for builds?
