would you feel up to building your own?

$850 can get you a much better system if you're willing to build your own.


as is, you have way too much PSU, and Liquid Cooling is NOT necessary.

i'd also suggest an Intel i5 over and AMD

thanks for the quick reply.

I am willing to build my own. but to be honest i don't know what sells for what and how important one piece is over the other.

I got the larger psu for room to expand in the future, as is the specs aren't that impressive.

I looked into buying the pieces and assembling myself but the shipping is what will kill me as i am in Canada.

Get back to me :) 

Thanks again

This list looks like the system builder list that you get when you pick out the parts at a siye and they put it together for you. Is that what your intending to do and not build the computer your self?
This is not what you could get if you built a computer yourself and your noy getting very good parts because of that. All of those inexpensive built computers want to use an AMD cpu instead of Intel and thats's why you get a not so good gaming computer.

On paper it would appear that all of these builds from Cyberpower and Ibuypower are better than the one that you have spec'd out , however it also appears after reading the feedback that neither of these companies are very good and you would be taking a risk in buying from them. On a positive side I happen to have purchased a Cyberpower computer from Newegg for a family member who wanted a low budget inexpensive computer and there have been no problems with it.
So all of the above computers have an i5 Intel cpu which makes them better than the build you have listed and they have 8gb of ram and similar video cards.
I'm going to recomend the Cyberpower based on personal experience.

The motherboard in your build only supports the one video card so you cannot expand in the future and get another video card for crossfire.

That was what i was intending to do, is get the computer built for me from ibuypower or cyberpower.

I am fully willing to build my own, and in fact that might be a plus?
Don't cyberpower/ibuypower have their own warrantys? (so i wouldn't be able to upgrade at my own descretion without voiding the warranty?) I would like to be able to throw new parts in as they are needed or i get some extra money lying around.

Is there a website that i can pricematch building my own and buying it pre-built.

Im more than willing to take the challenge of building my first pc, and to be prefectly honest. kinda want to.

Only if the price is right ofcourse. because im assuming id have to pay shipping on all the individual pieces i order to my house (once again, in canada so i take it international shipping)

Thanks again for the help! :D

The only thing you would be able to upgrade would be swapping the graphics card out for a better one and adding more ram. That's a very basic build but there's really nothing more you can build to fit your budget.

The cpu is the K model which means it has the unlocked multiplier for overclocking and if your not into or have any interest in overclocking then you can get a lower model cpu and use the difference in cost to get a higher model video card.
Unfortunatly there wasn't a lot of free shipping but the overall cost was lower. Plus the build includes the operating system which was not included in the build from G-unit.

Would those prices include shipping? and is there maybe a website that has all at a low price that could ship more than one thing at once? because just the case alone from G-units build was over 100$ in shipping.

The thing that I have found with Newegg is that they end up charging less for shippimg when you place a large order and the shipping prices listed are for individual parts shipping costs. What you'll have to do is add all those parts to your cart and see what the shipping costs will be.
A lot of people use the pcpartpicker.com site to select the parts because they list the lowest prices and you can choose the place that has the lowest.

Yeah i was checking out partpicker but it bases all its shipping and such on the USA shipping costs, i saw a case (haf)
for 49$ but it was like 105$ shipping lol.

Do you know of any good cases that will fit all the reccomended parts you sent me. but still look stylish :)

-G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
-MSI Z77MA-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Grand Total: $1,106.71(CAN$ and includes Shipping/handling and taxes.)

The price, for what im getting is better than i expected and have no problem paying a little more for a good reliable and most importantly performance based system.

Thanks one last time for your help and have an awesome day! :)

You have certianly done a good job of combining builds which is what the forum is for. We take your budget and propose a build for you to caonsider and then when you get several builds to look at you can end up picking and choosinf from each one according to what you want. What you came up with is just that and it looks like it's a very good build and should work well for you. The two main parts bing the 3570k cpu and the 7850 video card will give you great gaming performance.
