Cyberpower Build - How does it look?

I am looking at having cyberpower build me a new pc. I am trying to find that balance between price and performance (of course).
I would rather have them put it together for me than do it myself.
How does it look from a performance standpoint? Value?
Thanks in advance.

More about cyberpower build look
  1. Very not good. The gtx 650 is a super low end gaming card and will get you low/medium settings at 1080p. You want to try to get a gtx660 or an hd 7850/7870.

    Get a 500w PSU

    Ditch the liquid cooling and get a coolermaster hyper 212 evo
  2. i agree with getting a better gpu, preferably an AMD one since your motherboard supports crossfire. an HD 7850 is hard to beat.

    Your 430W PSU choice is fine for an HD 7850/70 (many will say otherwise), unless you intend to crossfire in the future.

    I agree to dump the liquid cooler unless you have your heart set on it.
  3. Thanks guys. I liked the price point of the 650 and it was a free upgrade to 2gb, I will look at the 7850 or 7870 and dump the cooler.
  4. The 2gb 650 is a scam. The card is too weak to ever use 2gb of Vram. The card itself will bottleneck way before 1gb of Vram will. Its just a pretty weak card.

    I would seriously shop around. I have dealt with cyberpower in the past and resulted in horrible results.
  6. Ill just add that you want to find out specifically what PSU that is. The old corsair 430 V2's have a very bad rep for going pop, the new one however has seen some good reviews.

    If you can change it for a better unit of known quality i would advise it.
