"Which computer to buy?"

I get asked that a lot.  "Just pick one out for me."  Well, here's my latest pick....(July 08, 2013)

Which computer to buy - CyberpowerPC logo
I ran across this CyberpowerPC (shown below) on Amazon. Normally listed for $689, these computers were on sale for $499.99 - Take a look....

As you can see, it's really worth $689 original asking price plus you get a gaming mouse/keyboard (wired) and a one (1) year warranty for $499.  Kind of a no-brainer.  There's no way I can beat that price, especially when you factor in the time required to put it together, install the OS & drivers.  The Amazon customer reviews were great so all that was left to do was put in an order. (pudding/proof and all that good stuff)

Which computer to buy - CyberpowerPC - Best build for the money.
CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA880 Desktop (Black/Blue)

 

So far, I've ordered two.  The first one that arrived was so impressive, I didn't hesitate to get another.

The first thing I noticed about it was the excellent wire management.  I studied it for a moment because I don't think I've ever seen better.  CyberpowerPC included the motherboard box, component disks, and a CyberpowerPC branded Windows 7 OS disk (these are things you'd expect to get but don't always do).  All I had to do was make sure the memory was seated (it was) and plug it in.  Nice, clean install with none of the extra crap you get when you buy from the more popular desktop manufacturers.

Overall, I felt like I was buying from people who paid attention to detail.  Highly recommended.  This is my new go-to place for desktops.

CyberpowerPC Desktop Computers on Amazon <<<---- They have other systems as well if you're looking for something with a more power.

For the record.....I prefer AMD processors so that's what I buy (CyberpowerPC offers both).
