No no no. You can't be sure what PSU you'll get.

I strongly suggest you buy the components yourself and build it yourself, you will save money.

Please also build this on http://pcpartpicker.com, I for one don't want to have to dig through that wall of text that details the cheapo 'freebies' you're getting.
 
If you insist on using cyberpower, here's my advice.

Get the XFX 550w PSU, they have that available and it's a great unit. You have too much processor and very little GPU. Your GPU should cost 2x as much as your processor in a gaming build. Go for a GTX 960 or R9 280 at the least. Drop down to an i5-4460 with stock cooling on the cheapest motherboard they have like a B85. You don't need 16gb of memory.

Just because I'm a cool guy i went and priced your machine, looks like $968 with OS, mouse, keyboard, and a webcam. I'm going to skip the webcam and get you a full build for $950 that will stomp cyberpower. You just have to spend an hour putting it together.
