Anyone ever bought a PC from them? They seem pretty good and they look like a better company than IbuyPower for example. Thanks.

Origin is actually IMHO one of the better boutique vendors, and was founded by a group of four guys from the orginal Alienware company [read: pre-Dell].

Yes they're pricey, but super high quality and they back all their products superbly with great customer support and warranties.

Buy if you have the time, try to build yourself. You'll save a lot of $$$.

You could try digitalstorm.com, avadirect.com, or custompcandrepairs.com. I am sure if you email any of them directly they will probably beat whatever price you can show them elsewhere. I live in Akron,OH and avadirect and custompcandrepairs both quoted me better prices when i gave them the price from cyberpowers site. I ended up going with the custompc one and its been a champ so far. My advice is to shop around for your price.

All of this only if you wont build it yourself. This will be the cheapest route.

I have seen it done, and i know it works. It just wont be pci-3.0 speeds which are unnecessary anyways. Even Quad Fire cards dont saturate pci-2.0 lanes yet.

ok i'm not sure where i heard it from but i think it was said on someones overview of the z77 chipset. i might have misunderstood what the host meant, but thought i put it out there.

Hey thanks for the info guys. Very helpful. I'm tempted to build my own but in past experience (this was 10 plus yrs ago mind) I had major headaches with it and I had more time on my hands back then. Now I haven't really got the time so that's why i'm thinking of going with a prebuilt system. I've got the cash and it'll be my last present to myself before I have to pay for my wedding! After that it's game over!

The build i did for you is pretty much the bees knees...


Yeah it certainly looks it...What about cooling though? Does that case have adequate fans u think? Seems liquid cooling is the rage these days. Is that not really necessary with your build do you think? Thanks again.

The case plenty big and has lots of airflow.


Oh nice! Didn't notice that. Cheers.
