all those parts cost like 1250 is it worth me buying them and assembling it myself?or just sticking with cyberpower......keep in mind i have never built a pc.
Well you did say that your budget was about $1000 and that was what I tried to do but if you want to add to it and get that build it would be a lot better then the Cyberpower. Having never built a computer before I don't know what your capabilities are and I would hate to see you buy all those nice parts and then not be able to put it together. Do you know of anyone that could help you.
Putting together a PC is easy enough. I did it on my own with no help from anyone. Just did a little research and slapped it together. I mean, 50% of building a computer is fairly common sense (Gee, this must go in this slot because its the only slot that fits... =P)
The Core i5 build is superior to the first computer listed, but as inzone said you'll have to build it and that's a different ball game than just buying it. An easy ball game IMO, but a possible frustrating one if you are new at it and not prepared for any issues that can arise. Not to mention the build is higher priced.
