http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Optical Drive $20

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Intel 'Sandy Bridge' i5-2500K $225

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - OCZ VertexII (SATA2, 80GB) $160

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Samsung HD103SJ $65

Windows 7-x64 (Professional)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - MSI Radeon HD6950-2GB (TwinFrozrII OC) $290


-For a reason unknown to me, I can't find any 1155 motherboard with the P67 chipset at Newegg that isn't either deactivated or sold-out. Odd.

-Do you plan on overclocking or adding a second video card in the future? (Needed to determine the adequate model of RAM, motherboard, and PSU)

I did the comparison and you are actually right... sorta. However with the build I worked out I noticed quickly that you are getting older hardware with Cyberpower.

For example the COOLER MASTER HAF 922 is on Newegg for $100 with freeshipping
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 for $190 (notice the UD4 instead of UD3 difference in the name.)

Going with a 2500K makes much more sense if you plan to overclock and will save you money.

Wouldn't recommend this. Better OCZ drives out there for likely cheaper than whatever Cyberpower is charging you.

I do not trust this at all. Even worse it doesn't give latency timings or if its 2x4 or 4x2.

I would much rather just go with 2X GTX 460's which would be similarly priced. In-fact if you can grab two on sale like I did recently is will cost about $40 less.

PSU: Raidmax RX-1000AE Gold 80 Plus


I'm sorry but I just wouldn't ever buy a Raidmax PSU they are borderline generic in quality. I'd buy this instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


So... in summary going with Cyberpower seems similarly priced but you are actually getting some outdated hardware as well as lesser quality hardware.
You would no doubt build a superior PC with that pricetag.

Most people that post in cyberpower area are not going to build there own or want to so why do you even comment---

op build the computer with the h67 confige and add the p67 mobo and 2500k because this way you dont have to get a gpu then you can take the money saved and get a gtx 580 for the same price.

I have built over 30 computers about 5 for personal use the most recent build is a cyber power with all named brand top of the line parts. Anyway I watched there pricing I paid 100$ more then I would if i built it myself buying from newegg. I am a fan of thier centralized warrenty, as opposed to dealing with multiple vendors. (Newegg is one vendor, I'm winging it here) I feel as if I will leave this to the the techs at Cyberpowerpc.


There, I turned that broken mess into english for you.

Now I can awnser it.

1. Newegg is one vendor, and they have great warrenty. Manufacters have even better 3 year + warrantys.

2. Cyberpower uses trash parts, its all old, cheap outdated tech.

Look at the PSU, Memory, etc.

Lol, another youngster who's smart as hell----Neweggs warrenty? You only get that if you pay extra. Other then the manufactors there is no warrenty. You have to pay for shipping to when you rma. With Cyberpower they ship you the new part first with-out you having to pay for it.

Not only do you get a 30 day warranty from newegg, the manufacter provides a 3 year or more warranty.

ANd shipping for RMA is free with any decent company.

Lol, ok


Op I reccomend cyberpower for yoU there pcs are quailty built. If i were you i would not go with major brand ram its crap from CP. go with Corsair dominator. Other then that the build looks good and you will enjoy it. I would also use the norush code and wait 3 weeks for it you save 5% and the computer will be put together alot better.

To herpity-its pointless arguing with a vetren sorry i should have no started crap and you should have let off we made this thread of topic.

My grammer sucks idc my help is good thats why im number 3 in cpu and componets for the month.
