    Why not just build it yourself?

    because 1) not everybody likes to do/has the time for that. 2) hard to match the prices.
    while i have built(& will probably build next one) my last 3 comps from ground up(& massively upgraded all prev& current comps) it is not really that cost effective to do it- unless you wait for great sales & buy parts over period of time. the reason to do it yourself is mostly to do with a specific build & specific look. plus building it yourself usually makes troubleshooting & upgrading easier.
    & cant beat the personal satisfaction of a job well done when you finally get it all put together & it doesnt work properly lol. all that being said i think most anybody that is serious about comps(&gaming) should probably build their own, if for no other reason than the troubleshooting factor.

    Mike2h said it right. I've put my own together before when I was a bit younger, had more time, and played games much more. Oh, and when it was much cheaper to build your own. Now it's much easier for most friends & relatives to just tell em to buy a Dell. Seriously. Most people I know don't need anything more than a base Dell desktop.

    This time I wanted something a bit "more" for my wife that I'll be able to upgrade in a couple years. But she doesn't need a custom, water cooled neon lights, crazy box. I wanted select components that Cyberpower had available. They were cheaper that if I parted them myself - I spent a week shopping the parts out & could NOT find them cheaper than what these guys offered.

    So far so good. I hooked everythign up & gave it a brief trial run the other night. everythign seems to work great.

    I give the company two thumbs up.

    Building computers today is a lot easier than it was years ago. Everything basically snaps into place or is plugged in.
    The first computer I bought when I went to college was a cyberpowerpc. Honestly...it was good to me. Customer Service was OK. Had a few problems.
    I will never buy a computer from a company again though. Why spend the money when you can spend a few hours and build a much better one yourself for the money?

    Today we're going to look at the Cyberpower Gamer Infinity i7 Poseidon, a pre-overclocked, watercooled i7 system. With a promising spec sheet this system looks like it will pack an impressive punch. If you like the system after reading our review then we have a special offer, just for DriverHeaven members!

    I've been reading through this topic and what I can't seem to figure out is...why are you posting about building a new computer NOW if you're set on waiting 2 more years? What's available in 2 years will far surpass anything we have now in terms of performance.
