More about worth buying good
  1. What are you going to use it for?

    Have you priced the individual components on Newegg?
  2. I'm not gonna price out a self-build - you can do that yourself using Neweeg as suggested - but the price seems high for a 2600k, 2x570, and a 120GB SSD without a monitor . . . unless I missed it in that list lol.

    The build itself is decent if you intend to game at 2560 resolution. Its way overkill at 1920 . . . but hey, you can never have too much horsepower if budget allows.
  3. I'd be interested to see what cable management they manage to pull off in the Rider,
    and ultra care option for transit? [insert profanity here]
    you pay for a pc, they damn well better pack it properly without charging you extra, hell no Cp, thats just icky....

  4. You don't need a UPS and a surge protector. A UPS is much better and surge protection than any "surge protector." In most UPSs if the voltage gets above a certain point (140V on mine) the unit will just cut the power and use the battery until it goes back to normal. This is far better than any unit without a battery can do.
  5. I would like to play the witcher 2 with good frame rates. Just would like to know if what im thinking of getting is overpower or really good. I wont be buying any time soon, just seeing if i could get a good powerfull system on cyberpower for the money right know. Also im not the smartess when it comes to computer hardware, so any suggestions or tips would be highly appreciated.
  6. dual 570's should play anything for the next year without any problem. I don't know enough about the game to know if it's overkill, but I would be really surprised if you need more than that.

    What monitor are you using?

    What monitor are you using?

    I didn't select a monitor cause i could just go out to bestbuy or futureshop and get a LED 1080p monitor.
  8. If you dont plan on buying it soon, I'd take the time between now and then to learn a bit about building yourself,
    seriously, you'll rarely consider buying shopbought again once you know how easy it is
    fill this in with your requirements, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261222-13-build-advice
    and see what builds come up from people, then compare them to the Cp build
    and work through this, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/288241-13-read-posting-buyer-guides-troubleshooting theres a lot of info in there and you will see for yourself how easy it can be
    *Edit, I reckon stick with the Dragonrider case if you like it, I love mine and its only a build in progress hehe that I'm probably selling once finished*
