You could build a SLI PC on your own for that ammount of cash.
But if you want to "just pay and not worry", its a nice deal..but it could be nicer if you would give it some time for planning and things..

You honestly could do better. The i7 2600k is a great CPU, but for gaming, you can save $100 and get the i5 2500k. You can also save a bit more cash and just get 4GB of RAM. You can use the extra cash and invest in a better GPU, a GTX 560 Ti or possibly a GTX 570.

Actually, that is a decent price for what you are getting. You could save a little money by doing with a little less high end parts. I just put pretty much built the same thing myself and it cost me just over a grand in parts, reusing a 1TB from my old build, and the 560ti, but I did buy an SSD for the OS drive, which was a little spendy, and I also had to buy Win7. See my build under "more information" to compare. You really don't need the z68 chipset, for gaming the P67 is perfect, and cheaper. And as someone else pointed out you could go with a 2500K as well, but its up to you.

We really do not know what broth is getting.

Among other things, there's no brand and model numbers for the motherboard, memory, or PSU.

Power Supply
800W



It's a trap!

Cyberpower only offers two 800W power supplies, the XtremePower 800W, and the Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W, a quick look at the pictures on newegg revealed quite quickly that you are getting stuck with the XtremeCrap 800W and not the expensive Cooler Master unit. The PSU in that thing should be swapped out ASAP if you do get it, its total crap. Its an "800W" power supply thats based on an old platform and can only give you 600W on the 12V rail which is really sad for an 800W unit, thats what i expect from a 650W unit. Its also still running with passive PFC and is probably only about 75% efficient at most.

I actually bought this PC, with a few upgrades, and just had it delivered today. I've been a PC/LAN analyst for 12 years and i've built thousands of computers over the years and have always built my own since I came from the era when it was cheaper to build your own. This was my first purchase of a prebuilt PC and I only took the risk (since I didn't have control i consider it a risk) because of the $100's of dollars It would have cost me in addition to this price tag to build it myself. All and all i saved $400 with the mail in rebates, sales, instant rebates, and coupon codes.

I AM FREAKING STOKED. It is watercooled, super quiet, and fast. The case had a few scratches on it, but nothing worse than what I would have done myself putting it together. I was skeptical of all bad reviews and can admit their customer service sucks, but I never had to deal with them since the computer was flawless. It saved me money, gave me more pc, and saved me the time of having to do it myself. I would recommend them to anyone.
