Hello, recently ordered a PC from cyberpowerpc.com and I'm planing to cancel the order based on some research and reviews. I'm either going to order a different build from them or attempt to build my own. I've installed graphics cards and ram over the years, but never a full workup. I'm most unsure about the different parts. Motherboards in particular, and thee wiring connections is a bit confusing as well. I've watched some videos and it looks doable. Wouldn't mind some advice.
Most definitely build your own. Thats really the only way to ensure your getting quality parts for the best price.
It's very easy. If you can use a screwdriver then your all set.
The people here are good about helping on choosing the parts to fit your budget and needs and we can always help with advice while building.
Well, this isn't really my thing, but until someone else shows up, you can definitely do better price-wise. The I7 has no benefit for gaming, it is only useful for serious number crunching (and flight simulators). The total below goes up around $75 without a nearby microcenter, but still is easily under cyberpowers build, and better balanced (and probably has a much better power supply). If you do have a nearby microcenter I would spend the savings on a 128gb SSD, it makes a huge difference on startup and loading times - or get a HD 7950.
