Hello,
I put this computer together with help from a friend on cyberpowerpc. I really do not play intense games but I do use CS5. Let me know if this looks ok or if I should make changes. I can not go any higher in price however.

Oh and I cant build me own.

Thanks

Or would it be better to buy from newegg or tigerdirect? I've heard mixed things about cyberpower and ibuypower.

it's ALWAYS better to buy from newegg or tigerdirect imho, unless you really don't want to deal with making the computer yourself. you'll get as good or (as is most often the case) better quality parts for less money.

I really don't want liquid cooling at all to be honest. I have no idea how to take care of it I didn't even notice that one had liquid cooling.

If you only had 850 and couldn't build one, what would u buy?

You say you can't build your own - why? There is nothing magical about putting a pc together. There are many guides and we are here if you get stuck. As stated above - a system you build yourself will have better performance/$$ and you can pick & choose anything not just between a few options.

I would love to build my own computer. I know I can get much better that way. However my mom is buying my computer as her contribution to my education. She will not pay for it if I build it. She doesn't think I know how since I'm not a computer major and doesn't pike the fact that there is no warrety. :(

This one is 20 dollars cheaper than the first one I looked at. It doesn't seem to be much different. What do you guys think?

I like this one. Its the same thing as the first newegg link, just looks like a different case. But I don't know how its cooled or if that's important to you.
