Hey :) 

I'm thinking about buying a new computer. My maximum is 1400$ and I found quite a good looking computer. https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/CyberPower_Black_Pe...

Is this computer good? I'm a total noob at computer hardware. I don't know what's good and bad, and I already got tricked. The reviews are good, but they look fake. If they are bad components, please choose another component to replace it with, (you can just your components) and tell me.

Please help.

The gtx 650 will play games at low settings and for gaming, get an i5 not an i7.

Are you willing to build yourself?

He can't get an i5 since it's a X79 system.

If you want a prebuilt for gaming, Find one that has a 3570k, get 8gb RAM, get a 1tb harddrive, get a 120gb SSD. Get a motherboard that has the features you like, get a PSU from Antec,XFX,Corsair,Seasonic, and finally, spend as much as you can or want and get the best possible Video Card.

No, I'm not willing to build myself. Okay, thanks for the feedback! But for me, this is all Chinese. I don't really understand what your saying... On cyber power, you can create your own computer and then save it so you have a link to it. Could you build alert full, good for video editing, streaming, very powerful computer, save it, and send the link? Thanks

These are good specs for your needs. Very overpriced because its a prebuilt, but whatever. The rest is up to you. (monitor and keyboard and such)


Thanks! But is there any way possible to reduce the price? If I built it myself, or got a friend to built for me, how much would I save? Same specs.

About $600 when you build yourself. That equals two $300 IPS 24inch monitors or one 24 IPS monitor and kickass keyboard,mouse, headset and speakers.

Good? Should upgrade a certain component?

Drop down to i5, get an SSD for SRT the 30gb nova is fine, though I would personally go Intel for peace of mind. They are almost impossible to kill.

The 660ti is no slouch and you'll most likely be happy with it @1080p. If you're thinking of going with a 2560x1600 monitor you might want to consider upgrading to a 670.
