Newegg has CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1322 (GX1322) on sale for 799.99. It is $100 cheaper than the original price they used to sell it at.
So my question is, can you build a gaming rig with the same options for cheaper? Some of the parts this beast comes equipped with are i7 2600k($300), Amd Radeon 6850($150), Intel z68($100). That is already $550.
Wouldn't the price come out to be more expensive than $799.99 after adding sound card, psu, ram, hdd, optical drive, case, windows 7, etc etc?
I'm mainly focusing on gaming. I too think that the 2600k is an overkill for the things I do.
I'm currently working on a 2500k build but I'm like really new to this whole 'build a gaming rig' thing. I'm sitting here in front of my computer trying to decide which motherboard to get, and its been about 2 hours now! QQ
I too, am looking at this system and I am not nearly geeky enough to understand much. I did do some research, because I will be using this to do "Rendering in 3D" so I know from a few articles that the "k" series chip is the best for that. I planned to swap out the GC for a GTX560 series. Could someone tell me if this is a good fit on this system? Is there enough room in the PCI-e area? I am moving up to this from an 8 year old Dell GX745. I need the 64bit for my newer programs, the power supply and ram. As little as I do not know (*and that is huge!) to my eye this looked like a great buy for my meager budget. But I am afraid because this will be my first puter that I will own "flying without a net" (*warranty) so I need help). I am not so much afraid of trying to build a system, I can swap drives and such, but I am leery of my knowledge doing wiring and power supply install. So this build sounds perfect for me! I saw in one review that the "bay" is large enough to do some modifications and upgrades also. But please help me to know if this is really a decent started on the newer systems for me. Any advice is appreciated.
