    I got this PC on the Black Friday sale 3 weeks ago. The PC is fine when it's running, but not without an issue. When I turn on the PC from shutdown the display has no signal and the PC seems to freeze up. Now you need to hook up display port/HDMI to the graphics card itself (no integrated graphics on motherboard), which is what I do, but I feel maybe there is an issue with the Graphics card when booting the PC from shutdown. This happened just 2 hours of getting the PC the same day after a windows update and restart. All drivers are current and up to date. I can get it to work by unplugging the system, waiting 30 sec, then plugging it in, turn the PC on and starting up the monitor all at once. It's pretty consistent starting it up like that. I can also just start it up fine using my HDTV via HDMI so that works. Im also able to startup from sleep just fine so that's good. I may just never turn it off!? Since I have this issue I can't give it 5 stars esp for the price it currently is. Just makes it feel unstable. Luckily I got mine on Black Friday. After I get it to run it runs soooo good and I'm very happy with it. I plan on keeping it and continuing upgrades in future. Here's the main specs for any of you curious of what I got and what I believe most get: Ryzen 5 2600 CPU MSI B450m Bazooka motherboard ADATA XPG 8gb 2400MHz RAM x1 WD SSD 240gb/ Toshiba 2TB HDD XFX RX580 4GB Graphics card Phanteks Eclipse P350x Case 450w PSU (EVGA) I believe. Runs my games pretty well on ultra for just about all games I've tried with a 144htz monitor w/freesync. All games I've played are usually at 144fps ie: overwatch, rocket league, BF1, Fortnite, csgo, ff14. It'll vary at times usually hitting above 100fps . As for me I just upgraded the RAM with RGB 16GB total (RGB works fine) and able to overclock it using xmp in the bios/uefi to get it up to 3200MHz easy. It gets loud when doing so though so just keep that in mind because it'll work harder, but nothing alarming. I turned off xmp just because it ran pretty well without overclock so the RAM it comes with is fine. Just wish there was 2 4gb sticks than 1 8gb Ram stick. 2 fans are included: 1 RGB on top back, 1 non RGB bottom front. Ryzen 5 2600 CPU comes with stock cooler. Case can have up to 5 120-140mm fans total (2 front, 2top, 1 back). Motherboard has 2 system fan 4 pins so having 5 fans controlled by the MB is possible with splitters. I prob won't put RGB fans in the front because the front of the case just blocks the view. The top would be a good option. It doesn't look too spacious at the top, but I'm sure it can work. The temp of the CPU usually is 50-60 celcius and GPU is usually 60-74 celcius while gaming...decent. I added a fan in the front for a little boost. It's about 39C when idle. Some have commented on PSU being too small and I think a bigger PSU would be a good upgrade. I don't think this uses more than 300w. So in conclusion if the PC runs great when you get it you'll be very very happy with the purchase. I think most people here have had a positive experience. I have had a good one as well for the most part. I do have the issue with starting up. This PC build is almost exactly what I wanted to try and build and for the price I got it for it would've been nearly the same if I built it. This is a system best for 1080p gaming. Despite my 1 issue, I've gotten attached and love it haha. Hopefully if I treat it well it'll treat me well.

    Good system but a few annoyances

    Posted

    Picked this up yesterday. The specs are great and it has plenty of room to upgrade but there are a few annoyances that prevent a 4 or 5 star rating. The pros: The hard drives have plenty of space. Most PCs this price with an SSD drive are about 128GB. This is 240. It's also nice to have a 2TB regular drive. 8GB of RAM is pretty much standard nowadays but the motherboard is upgradeable to 64GB. First thing I did was order an additional 8GB stick so I could run 16 GB in dual-channel. The Ryzen 5 processor is excellent. The board will also run a Ryzen 7 if you want to upgrade that. Setup was a breeze. Now the annoyances: It comes with a really cool looking "gaming mouse" with all kinds of buttons. Unfortunately, the additional buttons don't work and per Cyberpower's tech support, they are not programmable. They're basically just there for show. They have another model, the "Pro" model which is identical, but that one can be programmed. Not sure why they would include a gaming mouse with all of the extra buttons but make those buttons useless. The keyboard is similar. It has several buttons on the side that that are pre-programmed and can't be changed. At least the extra buttons on the keyboard actually do something, unlike the ones on the mouse. Basically, the keyboard and mouse are just for show and despite appearances are very basic in functionality. The lights on the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard has a Cyberpower logo on the top and the Cyberpower name on the palm rest. The logo and name light up and the lights can't be turned off. Same with the mouse. It has lights which change color on their own and cannot be turned off. If you have your PC in the same room where you sleep and don't turn it off, you'll have to cover the mouse and keyboard otherwise they'll light up a pretty dark room. The motherboard utilities only see one of the two system fans even though both are installed and actively spinning. One of the system fans has RGB lights and the case has two thin RGB light strips on the front. I downloaded the Mystic Lights software from MSI (the motherboard is an MSI) but it won't work to control the lights. Fortunately, there is a way to control those lights. On the top of the tower there are two small buttons, one labeled "M", and the other labeled with a small circle next to it. These two buttons let you control the lights. Unfortunately I didn't find this mentioned anywhere in the documentation that came with the PC. When I called Cyberpower to go over all of these annoyances, the rep didn't even know the lights could be controlled that way. Initially he told me that I was pretty much out of luck and they couldn't be turned off or changed in any way. Although there is plenty of room inside the case, they don't include any hardware to mount an additional hard drive. The power supply is under-spec. Per AMD's specs, the Radeon 580 video card requires a minimum 500 watt power supply. This comes with a 450 watt one. If you don't run too many power-intensive applications it should be fine but for hardcore gaming, video processing, etc... I expect you'll run into some problems. Other than these annoyances, it seems to be working fine so far but I'm only 24 hours into it. Bottom line, the functionality is great with the exceptions of one of the system fans not being recognized by the motherboard, the "gaming" mouse and keyboard being useless and only for show, and the RGB lights on the fan and case not working like they're supposed to with the MSI Mystic Lights software, and Cyberpowerpc not including documentation of how to actually control them. Cyberpower's tech support, while friendly, wasn't very helpful. From what I understood, these annoyances are essentially by design and there's nothing that can be done about them. If those things aren't a big deal to you, it's a great system. If you'd find those things to be too annoying, I'd look elsewhere. Personally I can live without the extra keyboard and mouse buttons and will not be using the included keyboard and mouse. I'll keep using my old Dell keyboard and mouse which work just fine.

    Incredible performance

    I spent hours online going from site to site looking for all of the best components to build a "mid-level" gaming computer. After all was said and done I was looking at spending around 800 dollars which didn't include the operating system. I stumbled upon this computer for right at 800 dollars on display in the store and ran a benchmark test. It got high marks, and I saw that it had arguably both the best value based on performance CPU and GPU on the market today, which was the two main components that I had decided to buy when I was still thinking of building my own PC. I ultimately decided to buy this PC and have been extremely happy with my purchase. I love that it is easy access, with a tempered glass side panel that you can take off with just your fingers. Upgrades to this machine in the future will be very easy, even for beginners. Technically this is a "mid-tier" PC build, but I honestly don't know what else most people could ever need. I run basically every game I have tried, MMO's, FPS, etc. etc. at or way above 60 fps with ease on the highest graphics settings. This PC also handles Oculus Rift very well if you're thinking of journeying into the world of VR. The only thing this PC can't seem to handle is 2700p and above VR videos. It will play them but the FPS is so low that it ruins the experience. THAT is perfectly fine though, as 2160 (aka 4k) VR videos are very smooth and TBH that is more than good enough. As I said, the results of this PC as it ships are outstanding. However, I personally upgraded the RAM to 2x8 Corsair Vengeance 3.0GHz and also added a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500 GB NVMe SSD. Neither one of those were necessary right now but they were $240.00 for both and I was gonna upgrade eventually anyways so figured it'd be a good investment for the future of this PC. I have included an image of the Benchmark tests for this PC with the RAM and SSD upgrade mentioned. As you can see, this PC is definitely a great machine and unless you are a world class competitive gamer there isn't much to complain about. Note: This comes with WiFi antenna that need to be screwed on to the ports in the back or it will not be able to establish a consistent connection if it can even connect at all.

    In for repairs

    I bought this system in early February and was completely satisfied. No bloatware, quick set up, etc. Thankfully though I bought the warranty. 3 weeks in it started to not want to restart. I then started booting it up and going into BIOS but it would give an error that it couldnt find a boot sevice. The only thing that would fix that would be to shut it down. unplug it and let it sit for 20-30 seconds. Then sometimes it would recognize the Windows Boot Manager but I would have to manually go into BIOS to start it so I just left it on. A week or so later I restarted it because the screen froze up and then had to deal with the issue above for two hours before getting it back up only to have it lock up again. The next day I basically messed with it all morning until Cyberpower opened up ( west coast) and then spent a couple of hours with them on the phone. They were nice enough but thankfully I know a little so I was able to follow their instructions on taking things apart. They came to the conclusion that the SSD was bad and causing the boot issue but that wasn't going to fix the freezing issue. I was told to send them the SSD and they would send another one...in that order. Oh and it was on my dime. I imagine for the freezing issue I would have to send the whole unit to California, at my cost, with insurance. They would however be "nice enough" to send it back at their cost. That evening I called the Geek Squad and set up and appointment at which time the guy said they didnt fix those models so unless it was something minor I would be able to get another. Cool as my confidence with this one was at about zero. When I took it in the next day I was told differently, they quickly jotted down some notes and said it had to go to Kentucky. So as of today this is the timeline. No working computer since March 7th Dropped of the morning of March 8th Label created the evening of the 9th 48 hours later it shipped so three days after I dropped it off Arrived at the service center the morning of the 13th Received a message a day later that it "had arrived" at the service center on the 14th so a week to go from Ohio to Kentucky and get "unboxed". No further updates so I am assuming best case scenario we are going to exceed the timeline I was given of two weeks. So I have a computer thats a month old that I haven't been able to use for two weeks and really have no idea what is wrong. I have theories based on some reviews here but at this point I wish they would just issue a credit because my nightmare scenario is that they say they cant find something and I go through this again. Not very happy at this point. As far as the three stars, well as I stated above when it worked it worked just fine but to have a SSD go bad and then a week later to start freezing up, well lets just say it doesnt build my confidence at all. As I said I am glad I bought the extended warranty because otherwise I would be stuck even longer and have the cost of shipping this thing back to California only to hope that nothing else goes wrong. Thanks for the time but i really dont know what to tell someone about buying this unit. If you dont get parts that break then youll be ok but if you do, well read above. Sent from my Alienware which hasnt had so much as a hiccup in two years while doing much more than I ever asked of the Cyberpower.

    Solid 4.5 star computer

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Long review here so skip to pros and cons if you don't want to read and a rant at the end. This is a solid 4.5 (out of 5) computer for pretty much anyone who wants/needs a decent system for photo processing, video editing and gaming. I bought this a week ago to replace a 2 year old Dell computer that had the motherboard fail twice (see rant below). This setup pretty much has all the right stuff (what CPUID shows): AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Pinnacle Ridge AM4 6-core chip Gigabyte AX370M-DS3H-CF motherboard Radeon RX 580 4GB graphics card (by XFX) Western Digital Green 250GB SSD drive (boot drive) Western Digital 2TB hard drive 8GB (single stick) by Team Group I mainly use this computer for photo and video editing (for my business) and so far it has been a solid performer. The only upgrades/ mods I have done was to install an additional 8GB RAM, replace the 250GB SDD drive with a 500GB SSD drive (from the old comp), and swap out the 450W power supply for a 600W unit (there has been discussion on whether or not the OEM 450W P/S is sufficient but I had a spare 600W laying around). Pros: Off the shelf components with no weird proprietary connectors/cables Almost no bloatware in Windows Lots of space in the case for additional drives Cons: No DVD drive (can be solved with a USB DVD drive) Can't turn off backlights for keyboard and mouse (not really an issue for me). Case/fan LED's can be turned off using the 2 buttons on top of the case Power supply replacement was not easy due to the case configuration (took a couple hours to route cables- just tedious) No front USB ports, only 2 on top of case- I use USB drives quite a bit and having front ports is so much nicer than top ports due to my desk design. I highly recommend this system for anyone who wants/needs a great mid range computer. I'm not a hardcore gamer and since Best Buy bundles a few games with this setup I installed the Resident Evil 2 and Tom Clancy's Division 2 games. Both run great and I haven't had any issues with both of those running at max settings. RANT: I mainly bought his computer to replace a 2 year old Dell whose motherboard failed twice in 2 years (1st one was replaced under warranty due to Dell's own System Update manager that wanted to install a new BIOS package (big mistake). The second motherboard failed due to the power supply going bad (showed 15V on the -12V rail) which took out the motherboard. Dell uses proprietary power supplies/motherboards/cases which made repair and replacement a hassle (I absolutely despise computer manufactures who put proprietary components in modern systems. I'm talking to you Dell and HP) . I ended up buying a new case, motherboard and power supply to rebuild the comp and use it as my Linux computer (Core i5-6400). I also have a 6 year old CyberpowerPC (Athlon2) computer which has been running great (this is my backup/ files storage computer). I should have bought a CyberpowerPC instead of a Dell. I highly recommend this system!

    Great Value

    Previous PC: 2014 IBuyPower AMD FX6300 with a R7 260X 2GB. Price: I wanted to stay under $1,000 but still get a 1080p/60 FPS PC gaming experience. I was able to get this for $879 but then it went on sale a few days later to $799 and I took my receipt back into the store and got $86 back through Best Buy's price guarantee and take advantage of the sale. AMD also had a special for this pre-built PC where after purchasing I was able to claim a rewards through their website to get 2 free games (options were The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5 or Resident Evil 2 Remastered) through Steam or UPlay. That was a $120 value since both games I picked were new and still $59.99 each. So definitely make sure you take advantage of that using the coupon code on the receipt because the computer was ultimately $679 after using those rewards codes for games I was going to buy eventually anyways. Performance: Easy setup (make sure to plug the display cables into the RX 580's spots, not the integrated graphics card, which is clearly explained in the packaged instructions). No bloatware. I have played 7 Days to Die, Ark Survival Evolved, American Truck Simulator, Farm Simulator 19 and Cities Skylines on it and all games have played a smooth 60 FPS at 1080p at High to Very High settings (yes event ARK). A simple youtube search of the Ryzen 5 2600 with the RX 580 4 GB shows that pretty much everything will play at 1080p/60 FPS. The computer received a "VR Ready" rating when testing through the SteamVR program. While it does not have 16GB RAM by default, it has additional slots on the MOBO to add more but it preforms just fine with 8GB for the games I play. While the power supply unit is under the recommended specs of 500W for the XFX RX 580 4GB. I have not had any power issues while playing at 1080p/60 FPS for extended hours. I did open the side panel to look how the power supply is set up and the supply unit does have a warranty sticker so expect to void the warranty if you upgrade the power supply. The power supply I have in mine is not modular and has main cables running through 1 hole into the unit. The MOBO power cable goes under the back side of the MOBO to the back and I don't see anyway to replace that without first having to take off the MOBO since the MOBO plug would not fit through that space leading to the power supply unit. All of the cables leading to the power supply are neatly hidden and zipped tied together. It is not the most quiet PC once it gets under a heavy gaming load although it is much quieter than a PS4 PRO when under a heavy load. The SDD and HDD came with the drive sizes as advertised. Just realize the operating system will take up a good portion of the SDD. So far it has been a positive experience.

    I'm a photographer and videographer who needed a computer that could handle photo and video editing with multitasking. My brother also enjoys gaming and has had a great experience playing his games at 60fps. This is the perfect starter computer and at the pre black Friday sale pricing, this was honestly a steal considering the specs included. I was going to build my own computer but this deal was a much better bargain. For starters, this is a very nice looking computer. There is one led case fan on the back, one non led fan on the front, and a non led fan on the processor. The bootup time is very fast thanks to the SSD. I've used Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere on this baby and they all load fast and I have no lag issues at all. I rendered and exported a couple of edited 1 minute videos in premiere in less than a minute. Photos in lightroom and photoshop load pretty fast. I will say if I have them all open at once on top of having multiple Chrome tabs open, it lags just slightly, and I mean super slightly, but that's an easy fix with upgrading the ram later to maybe 16gbs, but I can manage on 8gbs for now, even with editing large RAW images. I only noticed because I was being super observant to make sure I got a good value for my money. I was looking for any reason to take it back but I honestly love this computer If you're looking for a solid computer for editing or gaming, this one is great. The processor has a base clock speed of 3.4ghz and is a 6 core 12 thread. My system typically runs at about 3.5ghz and i havent done any overclocking or tweaking at all. Photographers, videographers, and gamers, get this computer.

    I've been wanting a gaming PC for over a decade, but I never had the funds for one. After my 10 year old laptop died, fate forced my hand and I began doing lots of research, trying to find a PC with decent parts for under $900. Many I found had some good parts, but lacked in other areas. I always wound up browsing through various CyberPowerPC systems, since they offered budget-friendly options. That's when I stumbled upon this gem. The first thing that drew my interest was the fact that it has a 240GB SSD on top of a 2TB HDD. I was also happy that it came with 8GB of RAM. These 3 components alone often significantly raised the costs of a custom built PC. The fact that they all came in a PC that's less than $900 was wonderful. Mine also includes a Wi-Fi card and Bluetooth, which is very nice (I don't remember if the original description mentioned it). I have always only ever had Intel+NVIDIA in the past, so I was a little unsure about AMD for the CPU and GPU. I did more research to ease my worries, finding that AMD has made a lot of progress since I first began eyeing a gaming PC those many years ago. I've had this PC for a couple of weeks now and I am beyond happy with it. Not only is the RGB lighting/fans beautiful (with cool presets), but it runs like a dream. It's so quiet I don't even notice it's on. Even when running games it's super quiet. It starts up in a fraction of the time of my old laptop thanks to the SSD. I don't have a lot of highly demanding games at the moment, but the games I do play run smoothly on high and ultra settings. This PC can also be upgraded, which is a great feature. I plan on adding at least one extra fan and possibly add another HDD. But for now, I couldn't be happier with this PC. I definitely recommend it to anyone needing a budget friendly PC. If you can catch this on sale, it's even more of a deal.

    Bought this to replace an I7 ShuttlePC I built about 10 years ago. Works great for the few Steam games the family plays (Bendy, Naruto, TF2, Hello Neighbor, a few others), Roblox and Epic (Fortnite) games. Other apps I've used without issue are O365, vMix, Camtasia, SnagIt, AmazonMusic, iTunes, and few others. I'm using the built-in wifi adapter to access my Xfinity modem about 20' away without issue. I'm also using a Bluetooth speaker about 5' away and the setup works well, ignoring the fact that my speaker goes to sleep if no sound is detected for 5 minutes. Everyone loves the lights in/on the case and mouse. What I really loved about this PC was that it contained absolutely NO BLOAT-WARE (none of that "free" software you get preloaded on most name-brand pre-built systems), it was just a pristine Windows 10 installation. My only complaints would be that the buttons on the included Elite M1-131 mouse are apparently not customizable ... for that you need the "Pro" version (c'mon, Cyberpower you should have just included it). Also, the included keyboard isn't working well for me, though not yet sure if it's me or the keyboard - everyone has had occasional trouble, particularly when typing passwords that contain any upper-case letters (Shift key issue?). After about 3-weeks of medium use we've had only one "glitch" where the keyboard and mouse became totally unresponsive after one of the kid's gaming sessions ... keeping an eye on that one.

    I have had this computer for a couple of days and I am thoroughly enjoying it so far. The case looks amazing and a bonus is the awesome RGB mouse that came with it and a keyboard (Not RGB) the keyboard is a bit to bulky for my liking's, but it has media buttons on the side and red colored gaming key caps over WASD and the arrow keys. I haven't been able to test any games except for Fortnite since of how quick the download was. When I loaded it up I let it auto choose my settings and it maxed out all my setting except for frame rate in which it kept that at 60FPS I loaded up a match and switched the FPS to 120 and it was averaging at around 60 with a high of 67. One thing i would like top mention though is that I am using a 2560 X 1080P ultra wide monitor while doing this test and the game wasn't stuttering at all, but I would recommend you turn off motion blur. All in all with the one game I have tried it went pretty well but the reason why it is a 4 star is how loud the computer got. I can hear the fans on the computer in my silent room and without headphones on without doing anything and when playing a game it gets a lot louder to the point where you could more than likely hear it through headphones. Upgrades are possible with this mother board so I would recommend if your upgrading upgrade the power supply if you can somehow reach it, upgrade the ram to 16 gigs instead of 8 and add more fans for a more quiet setup.

    Surprisingly solid

    I normally build my own computers, but for various reasons was looking to buy a preconfigured system. I have stuck with Intel and NVidia for at least a decade, maybe a decade and a half. But, being on a budget, I started looking at the comparisons between the Ryzen 5 and i5 processors and the GTX 1060 and RX580s. What I saw convinced me to give this box a try (though I did catch it on sale, and might consider the Intel/Nvidia alternative depending on pricing). I have been very happy with this box over the past few weeks. I have zero complaints, which is very unusual. Well, maybe one, in that there's no optical drive, and no slots in the case to install one. But I don't really think that's going to be an issue these days. Boot to desktop is about 30 seconds, thanks to the SSD. Graphics are crisp and sharp. Even the included keyboard is surprisingly awesome. The mouse is a bit larger than I would buy on my own, but I'm getting used to it. The box runs quietly, and the lights aren't overpowering. I haven't really played with them much. Though my daughter saw it and said how she liked the "rainbows." Highly recommend this box for home office or any gamers on a budget.

    Pros: It runs great. Handles most of the games I play (Total War, GTA V, Apex) I love the RGB feature and it has a good amount of storage. Fast boot up system about 30secs. Cons: The fans for the video card can be pretty loud sometimes depending on what your settings are. THE BIG ONE, I had no problems up until two-three weeks in, my PC started going straight into BIOS when starting it up. It would not find the SSD card and so I would toy with it by shutting it off and turning it on until It found the SSD. This went on for a good two months, some days it would come on no problem and other days it would do this and go into BIOS. Finally, I was playing a game and it froze up on me as well as my other monitor. So I shut my pc off and went to turn it back on and back into BIOS we went except this time there was no finding the SSD card. Regardless of turning it off and on, unplugging the SSD and plugging it back in. So I had to send it out to CyberPower which now I wait for a nee SSD. Not the biggest of problems but kind of annoying when I have only had the PC for 4months. Hopefully upon recieving the new SSD everything goes back to normal. Overall, I believe I was just unlucky that it happened to me and that this doesnt happen that often. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to get a pc and possibly upgrade it as you go. Its a great machine and gets the job done when it works.

    I usually like to buy all the parts and put a gaming PC together myself, but after seeing the parts in this setup at the price it was on sale for ($799) it didn't make sense to build it myself. I priced out all the parts beforehand, and Cyberpower puts theirs together for $100 (or more) less than what I could DIY it for. Even thought this computer comes to you all put together, Cyberpower PC includes all the instructions on how to take apart, reconnect, and upgrade different parts. The case and is heavy duty (glass, metal, and plastic) and looks and feels quality. The inside is super clean with all cables hidden away. The case is even ready for liquid cooling if you want to upgrade to that! I just bought this, so I'm reserving the last star until after I've had some time to really use the machine. The 4 stars is for the quality, price, and ease of unboxing and starting everything up.

    I bought this PC a week before Christmas 2018. Its currently April 2019 now. To start off, I was going to build a PC I never built a PC before in my life but I thought if I watched a video it would be easy. So i just took another look on best buy. Anyways i originally bought an ibuypower in November 2018. I took it back a week later. Are you ready for this one it had used parts on it when it was supposed to be brand new. I will never in my whole life buy from I buypower again. So anyways, I picked up this cyberpower. If i was going to build it it would be around 750, but that's not including the mouse and keyboard it comes with. I thought I would pay the extra and grab it. It was a good choice so far. I love it it runs all the games I play, which is bo4, mw2, fortnite, and apex. I love it. I get good fps, and the PC has no problems so far. A lot of people talk about the motherboard and power supply, they say there bad. I know a good bit about computers and there good trust me. Think of it this way do you think a big company like cyberpower would rein there name. They would never do that cyberpower is a good brand I would stick with it for prebuilt PC's. It looks nice with the LEDs this is a great PC.

    I'm a graphic design student and wanted something pretty decent to run Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign fairly well. I have only ever owned a laptop which has served me well for SIX years. But I wanted an upgrade to something better. I wanted something better than just getting the standard Desktop Computer. I wanted something that I knew would last me awhile. I searched for good gaming computers but for a fair price. And I came across this one that just so happen to be sold at BestBuy AND was on sale at the time for 799.99!! STEAL! I'm only on day three of owning it and I must say it runs everything like a dream. Never have I had a computer that booted up so quickly, that is comparing it to my laptop that would take forever. I press the power button and it's up and ready to go in 8 seconds flat (I counted lol) The LED lights housed in the tower are amazing AND you are able to sift through different colors and settle for ones you like. The mouse lights up but isn't wireless. AND you are able to change the weights out easily. Has plenty of room in the casing if you ever want to do any spacy upgrades. Has a nice mechanical keyboard which I LOVE. BUT buttons are spaced just a hair to much and the enter key is an odd shape but nothing I've never seen on a computer. Other than that! I would recommend this computer if you want something aesthetically pleasing and can run the Adobe Suite very good!

    Terrific - Mid/Entry Level Gaming Pre-Built

    This is was a Christmas present for the Oldest. He has loved it so far and the unpackaging and setup went very smoothly. There were clear directions to remove the special padding inside the case and I followed these to get it started smoothly. This pre-filled padding seemed to keep the system pretty well insulated. The system setup went really pretty well. The system was pre-activated and setup with a Microsoft account was about as easy as any new Win 10 system should be. There were some pointers to make sure and use the correct HDMI output as the board and the Radeon 580 both have HDMI out so it can be confusing if you haven't done it before. - My son has been running the system pretty much non stop since he got it and hasn't hit anything that he was lagging out or unplayable which was the case with the typical desktop he's been using. Nice features - Dedicated Gaming Keyboard and Mouse - LED lighting is a nice touch - Radeon 580 is snappy even though it's only 4GB - SSD combination with 1TB 7200 Drive is a good boot/storage combination Long term reviews point to basic power supplies in this and a possible need to bump the 8GB to 16GB Ram and some complain about the 4GB Radeon 580 but with the minimal gaming - Minecraft - Hearts of Iron 4 - Rome II Total War and the like that my son is playing he isn't really hitting any roadblocks yet.

    Excellent PC for GAMING!

    Works great for the many Steam games COD, Fortnite games. Other apps I've utilized without issue are O365, vMix, Camtasia, SnagIt, AmazonMusic, iTunes, and few others. I'm utilizing the built-in wifi adapter to access my Xfinity modem about 20' away without issue. I'm additionally utilizing a Bluetooth verbalizer about 5' away and the setup works well, ignoring the fact that my verbalizer goes to slumber if no sound is detected for 5 minutes. Everyone dotes the lights in/on the case and mouse. What I genuinely doted about this PC was that it contained absolutely NO BLOAT-WARE (none of that "free" software you get preloaded on most name-brand pre-built systems), it was just a pristine Windows 10 installation. My only complaints would be that the buttons on the included Elite M1-131 mouse are ostensibly not customizable ... for that you require the "Pro" version (c'mon, Cyberpower you should have just included it). Additionally, the included keyboard isn't working well for me, though not yet sure if it's me or the keyboard - everyone has had infrequent trouble, concretely when inditing passwords that contain any upper-case letters (Shift key issue?). After about 3-weeks of medium use we've had only one "glitch" where the keyboard and mouse became thoroughly unresponsive after one of the kid's gaming sessions

    Serious Upgrade

    I originally had a 9 year old HP with an upgraded (4 year old) graphics card. When that died I went with this shiny rig for the price point, the looks, and the fact that I do really like AMD. The SSD speed blows me away. I limit what I put on it because of limited space. The only complaint I had is that out of the box Cyberpower only had 55GB allocated with 166GB completely unallocated. I called support and they told me this was an error/oversight and they had me extend the partition. Compared to other systems I've used at home and at work this rig is greased lightning. Surely gaming purists will say that there are far better systems, but I was not going to spend $2000 plus to play a few games. Sure I could "build one" myself. I used to love doing that in the late '90s and early 2000s. I'm getting old nowadays and it's not at all fun anymore to do. I just want something nice that works. With it's very nice aesthetics--from it's tempered glass side panel, to the tidy cable management, to the quality of build I am stunningly pleased and continue to be (and I am almost a month into owning it). The only upgrade I plan is to perhaps double the RAM to 16GB. It's A+

    I Really Love This PC

    This is my first PC since I've always been a console gamer. For the price, it runs better than expected. The keyboard and mouse that come with it are pretty standard, but they work fine for standard gaming. Frame rates are reasonably consistent and can run higher settings without an issue. I haven't tested anything truly taxing though, so graphics will likely need to be run on slightly lower settings depending on the game. The LEDs on the tower are fun, too. My only complaint is that it can be a little slow to open programs and files (such as the Microsoft Store or Discord). This PC is easily upgradable and has lots of space for customization. I've already added some flashy sticks of RAM and the glass cover makes it look super cool. Even my computer geek boyfriend was impressed by it. the packaging is secure, but there were stickers on the side of the tower that were a pain to get off. They left sticky residue on the back of the PC and all over the dust shield.

    GREAT BANG FOR PRICE

    I bought this PC on 11/06/2018 with little to mediocre experience with the PC world. I've always wanted to build a P, but when I finally had enough saved up to start ordering parts the bitcoin fanatics made prices skyrocket. So this what I decided on after spending hours in the Best Buy store (they have everything btw). As soon as I got home I set everything up (comes with keyboard and a mouse) and immediately set up windows and updated drivers. This PC comes with: -CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 @ 3.4GHz w/ CPU Cooler -MOBO: MSI B450M Bazooka -RAM: ADATA XPG 1x8GB @ 2400MHz -GPU: XFX RX 580 4GB OC @ 1.4GHz -PSU: 450w Full Modular EVGA -It also comes with 1 RGB back case fan, and 1 plain front case fan. *HERE ARE THE BENCHMARKS USING UNIGINE HEAVEN BENCHMARK 4.0* ----> FPS: 110 | SCORE: 2789 | MIN FPS:38.6 | MAX FPS: 228.1 Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase. This is a quite well built PC with sturdy parts and exquisite performance. I would 100% recommend this PC to anyone with a lower end budget for gaming. Well worth the money.
