Cyberpower build

I have build computers in the past, i do not wish to do it this time. I chose cyberpower after a few weeks of reviewing other sites. I am new to posting on THW and i enjoy the readings i have seen in the 8 weeks of trying to build a PC. I would like to get an opinion on the current PC i have put together, from this site.

I use the computer for basic online things (i.e. email browsing web, music/movies.) I only play 1 game at a time. Usually some MMOrpg or first person shooter. My current poison is WoW, my FPS is whatever new BF series is out. It has been that way for years. So again anything from anyone will help, if you have any ideas on how to lower the price and get same or better results, please jump in and say something. Thank you in advance.

11.)Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Total price after 5% rebate, 3 day rush, and UPS ground shipping is $2069.50
They offer optional foam protection while shipping for $19 but i declined figuring they dont want an entire system RMAed because of UPS's ability to recognize "FRAGILE". If anyone has experience with this sites shipping, could you advise if a computer condom is worth the extra $$$.

Again Thank you for your opinions, and help.

    8.)1,000 Watts - Thermaltake W0132RU ToughPower 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready


    Is the Thermaltake your only choice for PSU? There are other better quality, albeit less wattage PSU's ( in the 750-850 watt range) that would run your system...
  2. These are the PSU choices offered by Cyberpower, i went with the Toughpower TMTK because of wattage, SLI ready and cable management, and previous THW reviews. My only concern was if i decided to upgrade to SLI 570's in the future. The PSU's listed with the asterisk by them have factory rebates. Let me know what you think clark, and thanks for replying. :bounce:

    I am assuming that the number in brackets(since it is negative) means that it is that much less than Thermaltake.
    If you have to have a 1000W PSU, I would take the HX1000W by Corsair, It is a modular PSU, and has the factory rebate. however I think it is overkill unless you are powering more than two 570's. I think that the AX850 (also Modular) would supply enough for a two card setup. Corsair rates their PSU's as continuous, not peak, and are therefore very conservative. Corsair's PSU are made by Seasonic, and I have the little brother of the AX850(The Seasonic X750) in my personal machine. Here is a review of the AX850:

    On the Newegg.com website, the PSUs by Corsair are rated higher than the Thermaltake ones.

    Hope this helps! :)
  4. Alright well a -$61 idea is a good argument thanks for the imput, i'm assuming everything else looks fine...? I am going to put this order in very soon. Thanks again for the help

  6. You should save atleast 500$ of those dollars and buy more games for more fun, instead of wasting it on pitiful gains in performance.
  7. Ah, but you admit they are gains in performance... Thanks for the reply dark, I'm glad you signed up for THW forum. If Clark wasn't a huge help already I would have chosen you as best answer buddy.
  8. Thanks for the best answer vote!

    I know you will enjoy your new computer!
