Hello,

I'm interested in getting a good gaming PC for black friday/cyber monday. However, I'm not sure what sites give good deals (and what would be a good deal). If anyone could recommend some sites/deals for me, that would be greatly appreciated. My budget is approximately $800, and I want to be able to play Guild Wars 2 and FF Realm Reborn on highest graphics. I want to buy a customized one so that I could modify it later on when I have more money.

I also found some deals on CyberPowerPC, and I was wondering if someone could advise me on whether or not these deals are worth it. I'm really new to all this pc buying stuff.

1) AMD FX-8320 Processor
• 8GB XPG V2 1866MHz RAM
• AMD R9 270X 2GB Graphics
• GIGABYTE USB3 & SATA3 MB
• 1TB SATA3 7200 RPM HD
• 24X DVD+-R/+-RW Drive
• MS Windows 8.1 + Office 365

CyberPowerPC often has good deals but there is one thing to be aware (wary?) of, the use of the "standard" PSU CyberPowerPC offers - avoid those things like the plague! With their customizing option, you can chose a Corsair, Azza, Lepa, EVGA or CoolerMaster (above 700W for CM) PSU model which will perform much better and last longer with much less risk to your system. I'd venture that more than 75% of the complaints about CyberPowerPC revolve around the "standard" PSU. The first system you link is the best but again, swap out that PSU!

Hey. Thanks for the reply! That's good to know about the PSU. Someone else had told me its better to switch to a PSU with 700W+ but didn't mention the dangers of CyberPower's "standard"PSU. I'll switch to a Corsair.

However, I was informed that the first link for a PC of $895 is essentially the same as the $759 PC. I'm not sure if I was being trolled or not. What do you think?

Oh no, they are different... 8 core 8320 vs 6 core 6300, much better video card in the R9 270X. You would not be able to compare performance, the first would rip the second to shreds (figuratively speaking)
