    Not just for gaming!

    Posted
    TexasMike

    I can't say enough about how happy I am with this purchase. I'm involved in a music project and am using a very demanding program to record, produce and engineer the songs. I'm on a hard deadline and a couple weeks ago, my trusty intel i7 Asus laptop gave up the fight. After going to the software manufacturer's help page, I found that a lot of people running very high end computers were having problems relating to computer performance. Video card issues also popped up frequently for others. I'm not super knowledgeable about computers and to further complicate things, I'm unfamiliar with the software I'm now running. Because of all the bloatware that's included with most off-the-shelf systems, I wanted to have one built but did not have time to wait. So I found this on the best buy site and drove 50+ miles to the closest store. I printed out the minimum system requirements the software manufacturer provides and took it with me. At 8gb of installed ram, this machine was at the minimum recommend by the software maker. I opted to take a chance with it mainly because the only ram bb had available was fairly expensive. However all of the other specs such as processor speed, video card memory etc were comfortably above minimum requirements. I did opt to add an ssd drive as it was recommended on the software help forum. I've been running my recording/editing software on this machine for around 2 weeks with absolutely no issues. I even found that the program wasn't writing to the ssd because I missed the option of directing the files there when I loaded the program. And that was where the problem arose on my i7 machine. But in spite of my mistake, the 1gb hard drive runs and records flawlessly. I'll get around to changing the file location but for now, it's not an issue. I'm semi retired now but I owned a few businesses during my career. Those necessitated the unemotional experience of buying off the shelf machines to get the job done. If I were still running a business, I would never go back to the brands one expects to see at most local stores. If you want a fast, uncluttered computer that has virtually no bloatware to slow it down, I highly recommend this product. I wasn't a big fan of windows 10 because of another laptop I have (not the i7 laptop, it's running on windows 7) that has been slow since the day I bought it, but I'm coming around thanks to this cyberpower pc. I'm pretty sure it would also make a great platform for video editing as well. Last thing I'll say is I never thought I'd buy another desktop machine but I learned that heat can be a problem when pushing the processor in a laptop. Even though this isn't liquid cooled or loaded with multiple fans, I have had no problems whatsoever. I smile every time I power this computer up because I know it's going to run flawlessly.

    Great 1080p FHD Gaming!!!

    I wasn't expecting the greatest experience when I initially purchased this pc. I have always built my own computers, but due to current prices of computer hardware I decided to try this after much thought. Gaming at 1080p is superb and even at 1440p is much better than I had expected. This review is for the direct out of the box experience with this product. Cyberpower GMA2800BST. Specs: MSI B350M Bazooka Micro ATX Motherboard Phanteks Eclipse P350X Computer Case AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor w/ stock air cooler XFX Radeon RX 580 4GB Graphics Card ADATA XPG 2400MHz 8GB DDR4 RAM Western Digital Blue 1TB HDD Channel Well Technology GPT500S-A 500W Power Supply The only issue I had with this computer was that Windows 10 wasn't activating. Windows stated it wasn't a genuine copy. I called CyberPower tech support, waited for approximately 4 minutes and was greeted by a very helpful individual who spoke English!!!!!! He walked me through the problem, got me in contact with Microsoft (also very helpful) and had my issue resolved very quickly. This computer is highly upgradeable so it's also great to build upon. It has room for 2x140mm radiator in the front, 2x140mm fans at the top and a 120mm exhaust in the rear. It has dust traps on the bottom for the psu and on top of the case, two brackets on the back for solid state drives, an M.2 slot and 4 DIMMS that can support up to 64GB of 3200MHz DDR4 RAM. I was also able to overcock my cpu to 4.1 GHz stable on a closed loop Corsair cooler and 3.8GHz on the stock cooler.

    Was looking for a replacement gaming pc for my 10+ year old system to be able to stream games and enjoy newer games. Didn't have the time to build one. Best Buy reps showed me this one and an HP model (Both for less than $900). The Cyber Power PC allowed me to see what was under the hood without taking any side panels off. Showing me the available upgrade spots. A bonus since the HP didn't have as many upgrade points that I would have liked. I trusted the components having had AMD graphics cards in past pc's. Bought it, got it home. It was easy to setup and get going almost immediately. Graphics card came with 3 free games (A big Plus) Two I have never heard of but the 3rd was Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. I series I happen to enjoy. It has multiple cooling fans and the case is full of venting holes to allow for the cooler air to be pulled in. The main side panel is glass (Pro: Easy to remove and see the internal components) (Con: Glass is breakable) The specs are good enough I can run my games at high resolution and ultra and still be able to stream at 1080p with 60fps with a 6 mbps streaming bitrate. In Summary: this computer may not be the top of the line pc being a few years old but the price fit my budget for what I am looking to do with it. It has the specs to run VR if I want to go that route and can easily be upgraded or modified to any desired specs. The AMD Radeon RX 580 has the ability within its software to record or stream to your favorite media outlet (YouTube, Mixer, Stage Ten, Twitch and Facebook) I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it for the budget buyer who can't do the $1k + systems but is looking to play the newer games with great graphics.

    Affordable & Efficient: A PC Worth Buying

    Computers have been something I have always used in one way or another. Whether it be emails, research, entertainment, or gaming specifically. Buying something that is 20 or 30 dollars is far less nerve racking than something in the hundreds or thousands of dollars range. So, I did my studying and came across specs I wanted and things that I needed. This was my first desktop that I bought and I have to say the choice was a great one. It met plenty of things on my checklist and in more ways than one. The tower is spacious and that is being generous. This allows the opportunity to add and upgrade as time progresses and as my sights change. It's quick, quiet, and aesthetically pleasing with the colorful integrated lights on both the tower, (has a tempered glass panel on the side to give you a great and illuminated look at it while it runs). It includes multicolored mouse & keyboard combo as well. There is a plethora of USB slots and ports on the PC to add to it. The motherboard has 4 slots for RAM (comes with 8 GB of DDR4 SDRAM), a 6 core / 12 thread processor that runs like a champ, 1TB hard-drive (that works at 7200 rpms) which writes with ease, and a AMD Radeon RX 580 XTR graphics card that leaves me satisfied with the picture and performance I've gotten thus far. For the price and functionality, this is a nice buy. It has the ability to be added to and enhanced while already preforming great out-of-the-box.

    I have built computers for many years. I have been looking for a machine for a while. Although I am not a gamer I do more of video editing. I priced out all the parts for this machine and still ended up saving almost 200. This machine has very popular parts inside of it. The only thing I did was add a 250GB SSD to be the boot disk and the machine is really quick. I have tried a few games and at 1080p it works out great. I could not be happier. The photo shows that you have RGB inside the case which is not the case. Only lights are on the front of the case and one stripe on the side as shown on the 2nd photo. There are small white led lights under each corner of the motherboard which are not very bright. I purchased insignia 3 foot led strip and added it to the inside for now to give it some color. I have added a couple of photos of before I installed the RGB and after.

    My First PC

    Okay so i saw this pc online before entering the store and at first i wasn't going to buy this exact one but it was their only one left so i decided to just buy it and honestly best decision i made. As soon as i got home i unboxed it and had to flex on the gram real quick but after that i was was instantly setting it up and was ready to play my games, Coming from a notebook laptop trying to play csgo,rust,minecraft, and fortnite at like 30 FPS and lower this pc was a huge upgrade...i average around 100-240 frames for minecraft with optifine installed and that was a big improvement. For CSGO i averaged around 80 FPS which was amazing because of how low quality it was before running LOW for all the graphic settings to now med/high BIG improvement again. I haven't tested fortnite yet but i thinking this pc could handle it at MED/HIGH settings as well averaging 60-90fps. My over all opinion on this pc is that it is a must have if you're just starting with gaming like me and you're looking for something that won't break the bank account. I WOULD 100% recommend this to all starting gamers if you're on a budget and just want something simple. I heard that it could run games at 1080 but haven't tried any hardcore games like bo4, DOOM, or Rainbow.

    Many people think getting a more expensive computer or a known brand be best. It maybe so, but not many can afford that big of a price and not many brands make up to their promises. Now this CyberPowerPC is a known brand may not be a more spoken about one, but it is fantastic gaming desktop! Ready to use. Streaming at a 1080 60fps with good internet even using wifi no problem! Handles itself very well. It may not be a i7 intell with the highest graphics that most gamers use to keep up with fashion. I am impress for the specs it has it does FANTASTIC!. This be great for starters as well as advance users. Its very quite, stays cool. A bit heavy but can be carried. And its not one of those small towers. Its pretty big but not huge so no worries it is perfect. BTW u can add replace upgrade anything you need to on it. :D So if later you decide you want to upgrade your graphics card or add more ram, you have that option. As for me, it does all that I need it to do. I luv it! :D The pic shows you the inside so you have an idea what looks like inside. :D

    I bought this after being a die hard ASUS customer. I do some gaming but nothing that required a computer that needed to be constantly using games. It does work awesome with the games I do play. I allowed my son to bring one of his games over and install it and he wanted to take my HD home with him. Wish they had a monitor that had a light display to go with the HD because I love the colors. I am not disappointed with the lights because it is what I had hoped for and the mouse that comes with it as well. My keyboard I use matches them both with the lights. I did have to buy an external CD drive but thats ok I knew this before I ordered the HD

    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'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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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!
