  1. Hello timotyman;

    How is it a modified CyberPower PC?
    I only see the usual optional choices CyberPower usually offers.

    How much extra does CyberPower charge for that?
  3. modified was probably the wrong word to use, it was more of a personalized computer for their site, but since they don't ship to Australia i chose to build it myself. And cyberpower is offering the killer xeno for free at the moment on some rigs.
  4. You may as well pick a Blu-Ray burner rather than just a reader. And then drop the DVD since most Blu-Ray drives can also support buring to DVDs.
    Some high-end boards already have built in Killer NIC.
