I've been working on a cyberpower system, mainly for gaming. I'm also a pretty heavy multitasker (internet, video, music, excel, etc all at the same time), and my old laptop just isn't cutting it. I'd like any advice on things that might need to be adjusted before I buy this. I'm planning on hitting up newegg or tigerdirect for a monitor for it.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Would never buy a system from them unless you can change the power supply. If you can, do so. If not, build your own or have someone build it for you. Also why would you put such low end cards into a high end system? Buy a 7800+ or a 670 the performance will be much better.

Would switching them out for a AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card and either a 850 Watts - Cooler Master Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply or 850 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply be an improvement then? There were also Raidmax and Thermaltake PSUs available, but I have heard less favourable things about them.

Thanks.

you should almost disregard coolermaster at such high wattage levels already. if those 4 are your only choices, then the corsair has a large advantage, unless thats a thermaltake toughpower at a high wattage, and even at that point, its only okay.

Thanks for the help guys, I've decided to switch them out for:

POWERSUPPLY: 850 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready [+56]
VIDEO: AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card [+170] (Major Brand Powered by AMD)

With everything else remaining the same. It goes a bit over what I wanted to spend, but I picked up some overtime last week, so I can swing it.
