So put together a cyberpowerpc pre built build and was looking for thoughts, comments and suggestions on if i should change any of the components. I have changed a few already. Switched from whatever brand they use for the asus mobo and upgraded the 8700k for the 9700k. Any info would be appreciated. Have a link if it doesnt work let me know. This is for 1440p 144hz gaming. Blacks ops 4, and in the future Division 2 and Forza. https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/cart/showcart.aspx?ref=upd

You should change to something other than CyberPower...almost anything else (but not iBuyPower).

We have many, many threads in here about the abysmal assembly quality, substandard parts selection, and the excessive price.
Your system is listed at $1899 (?)

Please list out ALL the parts and extra fees you may be paying. I'm sure you can get an equal or better system for less $$.

Agreed. From user posts here to my experiences with PC repair CyberPower is one of the worst brands you can purchase for pre-built systems.

Yes it is listed at 1899. I changed to 9700k for like an extra 20, corsair ram for 45$, and to the rog strix mobo for like 80. Total build cost after a coupon code is 1909$ the only cyber power item left in the build is the cooler. Is there a builder that is good quality and a decent price?

Actually, I means a list of ALL the parts. Specific make/model.
For those parts where they do not list the specific make/model...that's where they go cheap. Like the PSU.

Every line item on your purchase. They also like to sneak in an extra $20 here and there for stuff not needed.

I still wouldn't recommend anyone to buy one.

DVD drive not connected.
Motherboard missing screws.
Failure to boot up out of the box.

You know how the warranty works, right?
1 year, no matter what the actual parts warranty would have been. Most parts in it would otherwise have a 3 or 5 year warranty.
And YOU have to pay shipping the whole thing back to them. Significant $$ for a whole PC.

Ah, ok. I may just get the parts from microcenter then and have them build it. What do you think of the build itself?

I had a customer bring one in where the motherboard was missing mounts but was still screwed into the mounting tray causing it to short out.

The build is fine but I would probably get a better PSU. The CSM series is OK. I would go RM or Seasonic equivalent.

Im a noob i dont know the acronyms. What is CSM and RM. I have a thermaltake that is 5 years old and still kicking. The seasonic is a little expensive like 250$

 
a thermaltake that lasts 5 years already? buy lottery tickets while you can.

the csm and rm are models that corsair buys from a manufacturer and than labels them corsair.

both models are decent... at best.

its worth it to buy a good psu, luck will run out.

The CSM is decent. I mean the RMx not RM.

And yes better PSUs will cost more. I paid $200 for my AX860i (got it on sale as it was originally listed for $250) and it is 5 years old now and still has 5 more years of warranty, the AX series carries a 10 year warranty.
