Total comes to $2,000.

Do you guys have any suggestions or upgrades or things I should change? I know i'm spending extra money on water cooling but that's definitely something I want.

I would toss the 12 in 1 reader. it takes up a whole 5.25 bay, is cheap looking, and is problematic at best. a usb one on newegg costs $6. go with that.

more importantly, i would not buy the monitor from CP. its more expensive than newegg AND then on top of that they charge $25 for shipping. go on newegg, sign up for the promo emails (they come almost daily). on each one there are multiple monitor choices. i got the same exact one CP offers 24" ASUS for $157 + $25 shipping on newegg for $129 (free shipping, no taxes).

I would probably also add MAX DEFAULT CASE FANS +9.

1k watts is way overkill. i would get the Corsair TX850. its better...

I can't really change the power supply up very much. Nothing lower than 1,000W is an option. The HX1050 is an extra 91$

wo wo wo.... dont buy a prebuilt computer, build it yourself, for 2000$ i can quickly make you a PC that will outperform that one in EVERY way...besides, you are not getting a very efficient watercooling system, i can make you a custom watercooling kit that will blow that one, let me know if you are interested.

PS: if you were thinking about buying a prebuilt because building a PC is "hard" you are wrong... its not hard at all its VEEEERY easy and fun, i have a Quadsli GTX 680 watercooled with a i7 3960x with dual 560mm rads and it was VERY easy to build (and fun too :D )


I cancelled my order and re-ordered it.

For $1,770 shipped I got:
NZXT Switch 810 Gun metal case
Nvidia 680 Hydro Copper GPU
i5-3570k CPU
ASrock extreme 4 motherboard
8gb kingston hyper x 1600mhz
360mm liquid cooling kit for gpu/cpu
2x 128gb OCZ vertex 4 hard drives
1,000 watt cooler master silent pro
typica dvd driv
Razer Lycosa keyboard/razer abysus mouse

That seems pretty cheap for 1,770. can you build me something better for the same?

Cyberpower builds it. The only reason I want them to build it is because I have never liquid cooled in my life. I want to liquid cool my CPU/GPU and it seems like it might be a daunting task. Other than that, I've built computers plenty of times.

I'm willing to build it myself I suppose
