    Best bang for the buck

    So I was deciding to purchase a new PC tower so that I could play all my favourite games like Battlefield, Dota 2, and Skyrim. At first, I got the HP Omen instead. Somehow I felt it was a bit under-powered, when comparing CPU and Graphics with this one. So I returned to Bestbuy to replace the HP with Cyperpower and I could not be happier. Actually I had to come back to exchange for the same one but that didn't matter. This PC is heavy and bulky. It came with a gaming keyboard and mouse. I'm only using the keyboard and I'm loving this keyboard. I wish it could be wireless though. Back to the PC itself, I have no problem running Battfield 1 on Max settings. The Wifi is fast. The glass panel on the side looks cool. The downside is it has no DVD Drive. I have been using this every day. Though this Cyberpower PC is not the best one, it's affordable and can be used with Oculus VR.

    I have now owned 4 of these PC’s. The first one lasted 10 months. It just stopped working, tried everything I knew, took it to two different computer repair shops, they were both dumbfounded. So I went to Best Buy and bought a new one. In about 30 days the ram got fried. At least that’s what they told me when I exchanged it. The next one lasted 2 weeks, the GPU got melted I think. The fourth and final one lasted almost a month. Same problem, GPU got too hot. It was something in a driver update I think. After I updated, the fans never came on. Add that with a good set of headphones and it’s done. That’s my thoughts. I now have one I built myself, seems to be working great, wish I had done that from the start. This was on sale for 699.00 that was hard to pass on, luckily I’m an elite member at Best Buy so I had 45 days to return. I would’ve been so mad had I been stuck with any of the last 3.

    Beware what you get

    Nothing but problems with this PC since I bought it. I had the Geek squad install the extra RAM I bought with it, good thing too. It wouldn't accept several different RAM sticks they tried. Ended up leaving with 16GB Ram, instead of 32. This is the first time I've bought CyberPower PCs, and it will be the last. They couldn't even put a sticker on the back that peeled off. No, now I have shredded remains all over the back of my brand new computer because it didn't come off proper. And I didn't bother checking the CD/DVD drive because I had assumed it would come with one. Nope. Nothing. It has a couple of USB ports, but no CD/DVD drive. Nice. NOT!

      Dear Valued Customer,

      We are deeply sorry for your experience. Quickly, regarding the CD drive, this Pc is not advertised to come installed with one. This case does not support the installment of a internal optical drive. However, you can always connect an external drive and that would allow you to use disk if you ever find the need to. As for the RAM, we would look to work with you to troubleshoot as to why the PC will not read you set of 16GB memory. Please do not hesitate to give our support agents a call; we're happy to help anyway we can.

    Ok for mid tower computer

    I purchased this for my kids to get them off of my CyberPowerPC laptop. It has been awhile since I've purchased any AMD products. Compared to my laptop, this tower is much slower. I think that it needs more memory than the 8 gig it came with. I also believe that there should be a DVD-Rom in it also. It does not take long to fill up a 1 terabyte hard drive either. It has done well with the games my kids have put on there so far. Cannot play at the highest settings for some. Most will only play at 30fps. It takes longer for Chrome to load than it should but surfing around the internet does well with the wifi card. I would say this is a low entry gaming computer that will need updating within a year or two as the games become more graphics intensive

    Great budget PC

    I've had this PC for over a week now. It looks good, runs quietly, and puts out 60+ FPS on every game that I throw at it, on Ultra settings 1080p. Setup and installation is quick and easy, and it comes with WiFi antennas to plug into the back of the system for those who can't use an ethernet connection. I would highly recommend to anyone, who is looking to get into PC gaming without spending too much, to consider looking at this system. For the price and performance, you simply can't beat it. Not to mention this build saves you $200-$300 compared to if you were buying the parts and building it yourself. Plus you're buying from an award-winning manufacturer in CBPC. So all in all, I would have to say that this PC is a great buy, and I very much enjoy using it.

    Descent gaming desktop

    Great gaming desktop if your on a budget. It will play everything you throw at it. But to be honest, you can probably build a better Gaming PC for the same amount of money that you spend on this. Ryzen 5 1600 is a descent CPU, and the system comes with a MSI M350 Bazooka motherboard which is a micro atx form, so it doesn't support SLI. The videocard is only 4gb version, which Is the minimum that I would go with. No SSD, but the hard drive does a descent job. I benchmarked it and was doing consistent 4,400 score on 3DMark which isn't bad. Get it if your on a budget, and don't want to put together your own computer. But if you are looking to get it to upgrade as you go, then keep in mind , that you can't do dual video card, there is no slot for it.

    Great starter Gaming PC

    Great machine overall for the price. Right out of the box with no adjustments for the most part, you can play some heavy graphics laden games! I was let down to learn that I cant use dual graphic cards or add a stand alone sound card either, although the clerk who helped my said I could. Sound plays through HDMI cable but I cant take full advantage of the 7.1 surround like I had hoped. I would upgrade the RAM for sure, only having 8 gigs isnt enough, let alone clocking in at 2400, for AMD and the Ryzen chips you should look at atleast 3200. At the very LEAST get a 2nd 8 gig chip that matches whats in the machine now so there isnt any problems. In summary, GREAT starter for PC gaming but def has limitations on upgrades.

    Not good for high end games

    Posted
    Kevin

    I bought this PC 3 days ago and was not satisfied with my purchase. While I was playing fortnite, it would randomly shut down. To add on to that, I would have to replug the power source cable for it to power on again. I do not know much about computer specs, but I assume that the power supply is either ineffective or unable to handle high end games. I am not sure if I was unlucky and got an ineffective power supply considering all the positive reviews on this PC. Overall, I would not recommend this PC for high end games like Fortnite, Overwatch, and etc.

    Great school and gaming computer

    We were looking for a new computer for middle schoolers and looked at all of the name brands we recognized. I wanted something with sufficient RAM and HD capacity to handle a couple of kids and all of their projects. They also play a few online games, like Fortnite, and did not want to get stuck with a good pc with no video card. This entry level gaming computer had everything we needed and at the same price as other brands with minimum specs. The AMD Ryzen 5 processor and 4GB AMD Radeon RX 580 XTR graphics card are great for their level of gaming and beyond. The 8 GB RAM is on one slot so adding another 8 GB will be easy. The only issue we've had is configuring a USB headset, but that's a windows issues.

    My godson is about to start high school and was in need of a new computer. He also loves gaming on his consoles but had an interest in PC gaming after always watching me play. This computer is a lot cheaper then me putting one together myself with similar specs. I made the purchase and helped him set this thing up. He absolutely loves it. The system is not only a great computer to perform his studies, but he also enjoys playing games on it as well. He now spends more time on the computer than on his consoles. I also like that the system is upgrade friendly. If you're reading this and are looking for a new system, get one now. You want find anything better for the price.

    An overall great gaming PC rig!

    I am very pleased with this computer. It is my first real gaming PC, but so far it runs everything I have thrown at with room for more. Minecraft, check. Grand Theft Auto V, check. Cities: Skylines, check. Garry's Mod, check. It is a fantastic rig for beginners or experienced PC gamers. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. I really have no complaints about this PC, other than it does get a little louder when it is put to the test. It really isn't that loud for a PC, fortunately, so I don't even call that a real "complaint". Overall very satisfied with this purchase. Plan to upgrade it in the future, if I even really need to do that. It is already powerful enough.

    First one purchased was DOA. Had exchanged it and noticed there was a difference in motherboards and graphics card. The first one purchased was an Asus motherboard and the other was MSI. I also noticed that the memory was 8GB 2100-DDR4 not 2400-DDD4. Also no installation Disc included not even Windows Key had to look it up myself and make a backup myself. On top of that customer service wasn’t that helpful and told me to leave the box with them and go look for another one instead of checking stock to see if they had any left. Once I came back empty handed , someone else helped me checked stock with only two left and it was on a top shelf behind a cage and needed a ladder to take it down.

    I purchased my tower back in October of 2018, left everything as is for a little while without upgrading anything, and when I decided to upgrade something, it mainly was the memory (Ram) from the default 8GB to a whooping 32GB. It has made such a big difference with what I do on this computer, I mainly do a lot of photo and video editing (no hardcore heavy editing) just a VLOG style editing for gaming and all around videos. I'd recommend this for anyone that has a budget when it comes to a well built custom made computer. There is always room for upgrades from within this tower itself.

    I love this PC! I got this PC because I wanted to switch from console gaming, to PC gaming. This PC was about the right PC I was looking for. First of all it could run all the games I wanted to play, including... GTA 5 with mods, Fortnite, Minecraft with mods, and I bet it could run more! Secondly It was easy to set up to my monitor, and it was ready to play and to be use right out of the box! finally it is really fast, the mouse also lights up and changes colors. In conclusion this is my first gaming PC and I love the switch! This PC is perfect for somebody that doesn't know how to build a PC, or for a person that want's a powerful gaming PC.

    5 Star Gaming PC

    I was in the market for a new computer, but did not have a big budget to use. I was surprised I was able to find a build with these type of specs for such a great price. The specs actually make for a great gaming computer. I enjoy the lighting of the case and I must say, this system is quiet for a gaming PC. My last computer was pretty loud which is nothing abnormal when it comes to gaming computer. The system also offers plenty of USB ports for my external devices. Overall, if you are in the market for a new computer, I highly recommend this purchase. This is a great out of the box system!

    Usually build my own PC's, but decided to just purchase one this time and save some time and probably money. Considering the price alone of the GPU, then some memory, hard drive, case etc etc. It would be hard to beat the price I got it for on Black Friday. Was surprised the Mouse that came with it was not a cheapo, 6 button RGB weighted was a nice addition, the Keyboard was ok, but not RGB and although had volume controls etc, was still on the cheap side, so did upgrade that. Booted right up and have had no issues with it thus far, hopefully it will stay that way.

    I am new to the gaming community and didn't know anything about gaming PCs. But, at Best Buy, a kid by the name of Nathan, showed me all of the PC's they had and recommended this PC. I bought it, and he showed me which monitor will work best with this system and even showed me how to upgrade the RAM. He was really helpful and his kindness deserves a 5-star review! As for the PC, THIS PC IS JUST AS AWESOME! I haven't had any problems with the PC so far! It runs so smoothly, and is upgrade compatible! This is by far, the best PC I have ever worked/gamed on! I definitely recommend this PC!

    We bought this as an introduction into the gaming PC world. The salesperson at BestBuy was very helpful and knowledgable on what we needed. He actually felt that the model below this one would be sufficient for what we were doing but I felt I wanted to buy something that had newer technology and would be relevant longer. It was very easy to set up and my son is already gaming away on Fortnite. Big difference from an HP office desktop to this machine.

    This will be my 5th Cyberpower PC computer. I mainly play Overwatch on this computer. I just recently bought a 144hz monitor that looks AWESOME on this computer. Great buy. Highly recommend. BUT one of the downfalls of this brand, at least what I see, is they get dusty real quick and the fans are not great. So I buy the 2 pack of corsair fans on amazon and replace the fans that come with this. I also suggest to buy a SSD as your bootup drive. HIGHLY suggest that! Great great computer. With new monitor running at 144hz I get 140-170 ish FPS.

    I got this pc for Christmas. It's my first gaming pc and it's so cool and fast and handles games extremely well. However the hdmi port on the main circuit board (not the msi graphics card) and all the other ports are pushed in and I cant plug in and cords except the port on graphics card. I gave it back to my uncle Dave and so far it is being fixed. ( I hope)
