The price is $1285. Included in the price is the safe shipping and professional wiring.
My budget at most is $1150, not including a good monitor.
If this system is good, should I just leave it like this and gather up some more money, or should I change some parts and decrease the price?
If you think the system needs changes, please tell me what you think.
One more thing, I do not know how to build my own gaming rig, and that is why I will probably buy from CyberPower.
A few things about the build that could save you some $$$:
1) Get rid of the RUSH shipping. Do you really want them to rush building your rig? Cyberpower can take their time with builds (I've heard up to a month turnaround), but ultimately it comes down to a matter of patience, and gives them time to get in touch with you if there are issues with the build.
2) Get rid of the overclock. This isn't hard to do (especially with the 2500k) and you're not going to notice a 10% bump much anyways. You can easily do better on your own.
3) Cut your memory in half. 4 GB is plenty nowadays, and its fairly easy to add more memory later on, if necessary.
This should save you close to $100. You could also get rid of the UPS, and shop locally for that, though I recommend some sort of surge protection for your system.
The only other thing I'd advise, is if you do change out the power supply, don't go with Xtremegear (usually the cheaper option, so its tempting) or Raidmax. Everything I've heard is both these brands are pretty cheap, and will probably damage your system.
