HI Folks,
I am considering having the system below built by cyberpower but have a few questions:
1) Is cyberpower a good company and do they they build reliable PC's?
2) Does the system I configured look like it will be a stable machine?
3) Is there anything I should add or could remove to bring cost down w/o hurting performance?
I am not a extreme gamer and only play tiger woods golf,IL-2 series of flight sims,sim city4, and Civilization 4 right now.
I opted for the gts 450 graphics card because I already have a brand new here and I would like to set up sli.

The system I have configured comes in at $1,140.00 whick is a touch over my budget but doable if I'm nice to the wife...lol.
Thanks for any help in advance. I always find the answers I'm looking for here.
