This is the Gamer Scorpius 8,000. I am thinking on getting a gaming computer; thats it. Gaming computer for Christmas. I am going to get Skyrim and Crysis 2 and I am wondering if: 1. the price is worth it.
2. If I could do better, cheaper. 3. If it can play Skyrim and Crysis and maybe even Everquest on high details and resoultion of 1080p. I'm kind of taken aback by the price but I cannot find really any good prebuilt computers that have actual, quality, namebrand parts that will last for a long time and can play games on high settings and res. I'm looking for great core components and longevity and price value.

building from scratch is cheaper and with Cyber power providing you with the info you need to buy everything. But try to buy the best stuff not all of Cyberpowers stuff is of the best quality but they do offer the good stuff at a higher price, so look at that as you shop around. Hope this help a little and Good luck it is fun when you do this kinda of thing

Yeah, it seems like it. I'm putting a list together. When I get a few more parts added in, i'll post it here for some extra input. is there any good MOBO thats in the 80 dollars to 100 dollar price range that is good for gaming? I'm trying to get the best components that adds up to a total of a max of about 800 bucks; for a whole computer minus the monitor, unless there is a good one that is 1080"p" although I have a Vizio thats 1080.

I just built one, hardware cost under $1000 after I found a few price matches:

Case: Zalman Z9 Plus with fan controller
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS9900 MAX
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D2H-B3
RAM: 2x4GB (8GB total) GSKILL 1333mhz
HDD: 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
GPU: eVGA GTX 560 Ti
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2
Optical: LG Super-Multi DVD/RW with Lightscribe
OS: Windows 7 64bit

Sweet. But i'm building my own computer for under 1k. Trying to keep it in the lowest possible 800 dollar range, I have 4 parts now. cooler master haf 912, Phenom II x4 980 BE, Windows 7 64-bit OS, and ASUS Sabretooth 990FX MOBO. All the other parts I need still. The MOBO is 180+ but I have another 85 bucks from another source that i am not counting in the main fund for this gaming desktop, so it'll run 104 bucks for the MOBO. I want at least a 6850 1 Gb, would go better though.

The ram. Does the OS fully use 2Gb's of RAM? leaving a 4Gb holder with only 2 gigs of RAM? and how much RAM should I have for gaming; since thats the only purpose for this PC. Some people say 8Gb. But I'm looking at 6Gb of Corsaire Dominators. The RAM I get needs to be 1600 Mzh.

Well you'll have 2 channel RAM, 4 slots. So make sure you use RAM chips in pairs - anything over 4gb is fine, a 2x3gb kit would be great. I have 8gb and usually don't use more than around 5. The nice thing about having plenty of RAM is that Windows can load up stuff you use a lot to speed it all up. I use around 2gbs just in windows normally with everything closed. If you have a program running that needs more RAM, though, it will just store some of the data in your page file, but this of course means it'll be slower when you go back to windows and it has to copy it all back.

Are you opening to learning to build your own pc? Because its both money saving, better performance and you get to learn so much about your pc. You appreciate it a lot more too. With a $1000 budget you could be getting yourself a z68 mb, an intel 2500k cpu, and maybe even a gtx 560ti or a 68xx series radeon without hittin a mere $900. really consider this because what you have listed isn't bad, but sure isn't the nicest and most worth getting for such a good budget like yours. If you still plan to get it through cyberpower, consider the 965 BE cpu and get yourself the 6870 gpu or 8gb 1600mhz ram. But all in all im pretty sure everyone would agree that building it yourself is the BEST OPTION!
