Cyberpower doesn't seem that bad, I rebuilt a friend's cyberpower after the fool threw a glass of water into it somehow with his mousecord. Anyway, they did a good job on it and the asetek cooler was pretty nice.

Seems like this company can sell systems cheaper than I can order the parts and O.S. for. They beat my price by at least $300 ish and sometimes more. Damn good company! I have also done maintenance on a few and they are well built and wired!:toast: I don't think anyone can beat their prices normally....unless you go second hand.

Prices are terrible compared to DIY in the US. Maybe it's better in Canada. 500 dollars cheaper to DIY a decent gaming PC that I just mocked up.

For the exact same specs above and every thing except the case to be purchased at newegg and the case from Micro Center the total cost with out shipping is $1991 but CyberpowerPC sells this configuration for $1,693.85 shipped to your door with 3 year warranty and that close enough to say a $300 savings......I know people can some times beat their offers but that is very very rare and I am in the USA. Oh just incase you are wondering I do not work for CyberpowerPC. :toast:

They must get the high end stuff pretty cheap.

I mocked a midrange system and they wanted 1500.

So, the prices aren't adding up here. How can a cheap case, cheap cooling, much cheaper single gpu, cheaper cpu (AMD cheap no less), etc total only 200 off? This means they're screwing everyone over that doesn't select a higher end build.

I still stand by my point. They're a rip off.

Hmmm interesting.....I have never thought to mock up a low or mid end config but, the high end ones are great normally.

I remember A LOT of horror stories concerning CyberPower PC from the socket 775 days. Components not installed properly, wiring not hooked up, components loose inside the case, and terrible customer service. Just search their forums, you'll see what I'm talking about(unless CyberPower PC deleted those threads). Maybe they have fixed those problems, but I would have reservations about ordering from this company.
