CyberPower Build

Hey guys I was looking for feedback on the following cyberpower build. I want something that will be able to play most games on the highest settings.

I am looking for potential bottle necks and compatibility issues.

Also, is a component giving me little relative performance vs. value? Alternatively, would a relatively cheap upgrade be worth the while in a particular area?

I am not going for anything visually fancy. Let me know!

The price is $1,563.

Thanks

  1. You would fair better taking that $1500 and building your own. I feel you can do better than a Haf 912, the GTX 550 Ti and 700 watt psu with that budget.

    Some how things got mixed up in the build I put up there. I originally planned on the GTX 560 TI 2GB, and the mobo you have listed, Asus maximus IV extreme, which would give me the option of adding another GPU later on.

    I would be interested in building my own, but have zero experience in hardware.

    Building your own is a more rewarding experience. I'd build my own and get a next Gen. card. The Cyber build has a smaller case, a mid-to entry level gpu and no operating system. The Asus board, Core i7 2600k, Full Tower Coolermaster HAF 932 and a HD 7970 would be an Awesome rig both in looks and performance, plus the full tower gives you room to grow and better air flow.
    The other build has a Hard Drive and those prices have went up in recent weeks but I think you see where I'm going. You get a lot more bang for your buck for another $150.00 over your proposed budget

    And if you just really wanted a Nvidia card I would go with the GTX 570 $339.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130621

    Western Digital Caviar Green 1.5TB $139.99 Until HDD prices go back to normal. I have a Sata II HDD paired with a Sata III SSD myself.

    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO $34.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099


    With the Nvidia card, Western Digital HDD and Coolermaster CPU cooler bring the price to $1444.92 before shipping and rebates. The only shortcuts being the Sata II HDD but you have some room to adjust here and there but were you to add $200 the original build I proposed would really put you ahead of the game for a good long minute. But I hope you see how much you can get for your money when you build your own. There's a ton of resources on the site and a lot of good guys that would be more than happy to help you through the process. For $1500.00 You can build a really Kickass rigs that will serve you well for years to come.
  5. generally I agree with much of what tinmann has written. building you own rig is much more rewarding plus you get alot more for the cost. there are plenty of vidoes and help avalible online to help building your own.

    If decide to go cp drop the i7 to an i5 2500k.

    when are you purchasing this rig?
  6. Ill build my own.

    I have 2k sitting in amazon credit so that will be where I get my products. Need to use it some how...

    You guys had better be around to help me put this thing together.....

    I've already discovered http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-your-own-pc,2601-4.html which will (hopefully) take care of most of the technical "putting togetherness"

    Wish me luck
  7. youtube is also quite helpful.
