    decent everyday computer.

    First and foremost I didn't buy this computer to run the latest AAA gaming titles, and while I'm sure if I wanted to run those titles on this computer with modified settings I could, I just think that if that's the aim you might want to save up some more? That said I mainly use my computer for some light web browsing, streaming content [ ie. Netflix, hulu, Spotify.. ], and Photoshop. For webbrowing and streaming I haven't run into any issues. The computer runs smoothly and I haven't had any real issues. When it comes to having Photoshop open it doesn't run any better than it did on a lower spec'd laptop. Since I was already use to the program running a little slow before I'm not super upset that on my new machine I'm still having that same issue. Other than that the machine is fine. I wish that it didn't come packaged with a wifi dongle that came packaged with a CD that I didn't need. The rig doesn't have an optical drive and you don't need the CD for the drivers so it just felt like a waste. As far as I can tell the headphone jack is headphone only, and while there is a separate jack for a mic and I do have a usb mic, so it's not the end of the world, it just weird a bit. Maybe it's cheaper to produce it that way. The included peripherals work great, I haven't had any issues. My only real complaints are aesthetics, I don't see the purpose for the keyboard to have always on light up logos, they're white, the plastic covering it feels cheaper than the rest of the otherwise nice keyboard. The headphone button on the side can only pull up the default music player and for people that use iTunes that's probably great since you can set iTunes as the default, but as someone that uses Spotify it's just a button on the keyboard that I don't ever use. Even the internet shortcut key has been used a couple times. At the end of the day I'm happy with my purchase, and it's probably a safe purchase if all you plan to do is light productivity and titles like The Sims [ which so far has been smooth on my end ] it's a good guy, otherwise like I said earlier, might want to save some more.

    Good Entry Level Gaming PC...but.....

    This was a good entry level gaming PC right out of the box. My son uses Minecraft, Fortnite, XBOX remote console, and other recent games with no complaints yet. *******Now to the one bad thing. If you bought one of these computers recently check the rear inside cooling fan!!!!!!!!!!!! Ours did not work from day one. I called CyberPower customer service and the odd part was he did not seem surprised to hear that the cooling fan was not working. He quickly set me up with a replacement cooling fan warranty ticket over the phone. It took a week for the order to go through and for the fan to ship to me. Then took 3 days in transit. My son and I replaced the fan in about 20 minutes. If you are NOT familiar with replacing computer components then you might not want to tackle that type of job. We had to remove the glass panel, metal side panel, carefully unplug the big fan power connector, remove the non working fans four screws, then put the new fan in with reversal process. Other than that, it seems to be an OK gaming computer. (FYI, i've been buying new computer packages since 1997 and never had one with a bad cooling fan right out of the box. Odd.)

    So far I have not run into any major problems with the tower. I was delighted with all the pretty lights which I did not expect. The initial setup was quite easy. The USB-3 ports (blue on top) do not seem to function any faster with USB-3 devices than with USB-2, but I did not purchase this unit for speed in that area, rather for ease of editing and rendering video, ... storage can wait. I have become more than dissatisfied with some of the software I purchased with the CyberPower - specifically CyberLink PowerDVD. I had tried to make it clear that this unit was not intended to go online, and had no idea that PowerDVD REQUIRES THE UNIT on which it is installed to be available to the "MotherShip" EVERY 30 DAYS. I only discovered this after attempting to install it and then trying to register it online via another system. It seemed simple enough to register and receive a "Key" and get it up and running. NOT SO. Unfortunately, CuberLink refuses to refund ANYTHING not purchased Directly from them and insisted that I contact the "3rd Party Vendor" (BestBuy), but there is no provision for refunding on software, so I seem to be out $100 for software I cannot use and do not want. I learned a very important lesson in "HiTech" marketing: Visit a "Brick & Mortar" store to look things over, but make your purchases directly whenever possible.

    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

    Amazing for price

    Everything runs great. My only thing is before buying consider what games you are going to want to play and how well you want it to play because this pc plays most games on medium or low, but I will recommend looking at the GPU's VRAM and comparing it with the Requirements for the games you are going to play. This system has an RX560 2gb some games Require at most 4gb. For example BF1 if you want to play BF1 do not get this pc, as you can play BF1 but the CPU or VRAM Do not meet recommended Requirements this pc may run BF1 but not very well as the CPU doesn't meet the required minimum specs. The only thing That is Minimum Spec Required is the RX560 2gb. The Minimum required CPU for BF1 is the Intel i5 6600k or AMD FX 6350. And recommended is the Intel i7-4790 or AMD FX 8350 Wraith. As well as 4gb VRAM. so if you are planning on playing BF1 at Higher graphics settings just know you will either have to upgrade in the near future or get a different Gaming PC.

    This is my first gaming PC and it runs every game that I wanted it to. It runs on medium-high graphics, which u can upgrade the ram and other specs to achieve better. I play fort-nite, league of legends, Dota2, Rainbow 6 siege and other similar games. Even though I am new to the PC world this PC runs these games fine. The Keyboard is ok and mouse has a couple different DPI? settings, yes u cant change the color without changing the DPI?(not sure if thats what its called) but these are all things you can upgrade as well for 500 its not a bad starter Im not even hard lined in I still use the wifi adapter it came with. I haven't had a problem yet and I've been constantly gaming on this PC for 2 months now. I run league of legends (my most played game) on medium-high graphics at 90-150 fps with 20-60 ping. Remember if u have bad internet then it doesn't matter what type of comp u have everything is going to be slow.

    Good But Needs Upgrades

    CPU is Horriable, Graphic Card is not bad would recommend an upgrade. Awesome case really gotta admit looks amazing but its not about the case. I put 18GB total of ram (different cards) and it ran perfectly, which is odd usually computers reject non-same matching ram. Currently overclocking the FX crap CPU by X7 which isn't bad. But the CPU series is one of the worst cpu's I've had so far and even the company mentioned it was a "really bad series." For the price honestly far enough! Usually would expect bestbuy to overcharge, but this is good deal. Final issus, the GPU can barely render x3/14th of continuing textures unless resolution is set lower. Which sucks but no lag which is very impressive without overclocking. Overall would recommend upgrading your gpu to an GTX 1070 And Up and try to install a better CPU. DO NOT! Put any other company cpu in your computer would ruin it. Stick to the main brand of the motherboard.

    I came into Best Buy as a first-time computer builder looking for parts to start my build. Months into planning and research, I still hadn't found what I truly wanted, and frankly, I was kind of stressed about building a computer from scratch. While in store an associate, whose name escapes me (sorry!), helped me look at quality parts and then showed me a few selections from the prebuilt section. He knew I was worried about building from scratch and showed me a computer that actually was basically the same as the one I was building. He told me it was a little bit more, but assured me that within an hour I would be hooked up and ready to go. Truly I am happy with my purchase and I am excited to do what I have always wanted to do.

    Great PC for those who want to get into PC gaming

    I bought this PC over a year ago and have been enjoying it ever since, It runs games pretty well, and can handle most games. It runs CS:GO on max settings, GTA V on around low-medium settings, RS6 on medium settings, and is pretty good when it comes to have multiple windows open. Pretty consistent frames with this PC. Downside - For some reason my PC has an issue where it randomly restarts, not sure what exactly is causing that, but it started occuring after a couple of months. It just restarts and makes you sign in again. PC is pretty sturdy, colors are dope, matches really well with mouse and keyboard, relatively quiet, overall a good PC.

    This gaming computer is an economical budget option, with its affordable entry price below six hundred dollars. The AMD set up inside the computer will allow you to upgrade parts easily. The computer's case is open with a great deal of room allowing you to add new parts and change the inside with time. The lights on the desktop are customizable to your choice. Something to take note of is the lack of a disk drive and the only way to add such a device would slaughter the back end, but you are always able to purchase external disk drives. This computer starting off is nothing to go into pro gaming with, but if you are wanting to get started or get a foothold to do more with what you have then this is a great route to go.

    We needed a new W10 desktop that would handle office apps, some mild gaming and streaming. Overall it is a great value but in hind-site had we waiting a few more months we could have spent about the same money for the upgraded Ryzen processor which would handle more 4k processing. No worries. We didn't necessarily buy it for that. On the bad side, with a few months the rear case fan started slowing down. Note, this was mentioned in previous reviews for this same product. I purchased this in August 2018, after contacting Cyberpower, they quickly sent a new case fan. We did not buy Geek Squad, but I am not regretting that decision.

    This is a really good starter gaming pc. For the people who don't want to fully invest in a rig right away, and just wanted to dabble in pc gaming this is great. The RX 560 graphics can run almost all current games on the lowest settings smoothly. To lessen some of the burden I would invest in another 8gbs of ram. You can also get this through best buy. It uses DDR3, which will run you about $100. It will save you a lot of headache in the long run. It runs really well and it's very easy to make upgrades. If you decide that you like pc gaming; there is an upgraded version of this build with a Ryzen 5, that you can buy through best buy as well.

    Overall the computer is great for the price that you are paying. The only issue I have with this computer is that the processor is close to being 100% used while playing a game and if you like to stream using obs studio causes the processor to be completely maxed out and makes your game slow down and freeze every few seconds. I would advise to save your money and buy the better Cyberpowerpc from best buy that comes with the Ryzen 5 processor a better graphics card and few other addon's that make paying the extra 2 or 3 hundred dollars worth it. Again this is still a nice pc for the price you pay.

    I just received my pc, i bought the 5560 model, and so far so good. I actually bought my monitor separate and it has yet to come in, so i haven't gotten the chance to test it out. It comes in good packaging, and i don't know if this was like a best buy thing or a black friday thing or what but mine came with a mouse and keyboard as well. And there]s a way to register for a free mouse pad and $10 e gift card. Now mind you guys, i don't know squat about computers, but i had one of my good friends help me out and we compared this to about 3 other pcs, and this one won by a landslide. Would recommend as a first gaming pc.

    I love the machine but I wish the specks online would be more clear. I looked at the screen the sales associate showed me and it said it had a wireless card, not a dongle that it came with. I specifically asked for a machine with a wireless NIC and Bluetooth. This machine didn't have both. I had to go out and buy a Bluetooth dongle. With that said the machine its self is great I'm super pleased with it. I also love the case!

    I am just now getting into pc gaming and so far this model does what I need. It can handle my day to day office management as well as covering the entertainment aspects of my life. Typically, I would have gone for the highest performance model but I can always upgrade down the road. This particular model was a gift to me so I'm completely happy with everything so far. The only complaint I have is with the windows operating system. Upon starting and registering the computer had corrupt files that had to be resolved. Once that was taken care of everything seemed to run very well and fast!

    I love this computer to bits, it has good system cooling, and provides a pretty recent graphics card from the RX 500 series. The 8 gb of ram is a small amount, but is something that can be easily upgraded, and the LEDs make the computer much more aesthetically pleasing. One of the downsides of this computer is that it does not provide an SSD, instead, it provides and HDD, which is not terrible, but an SSD would be much more convienient and will speed up your machine. It should be easy to install an SSD because of the two SSD brackets they provide for you on the back panel.

    Honestly, I am organizing a spare bedroom to be an office space as well and needed to update my old PC. I primarily use a MacBook laptop for most of my work, however this PC caught my eye and spoke to me. I love the features so far and bought a nice 32' Samsung tv as a monitor which makes the experience so much better. As for cons, only complaint is that it doesnt have an attached CD drive which I assumed all PCs have. However, this computer is capable of being upgraded and powerful to do the work I'm interested in doing! Definitely check it out!

    I bought this PC as an upgrade to an old custom build, as I was low on funds and got a deal on this, I went for it. I got what I wanted with it. I can play WoW and stream to Twitch with no problems, it stays quiet and runs nice. Only issue I had was when using the DisplayPort it made my monitor (actually tried 2 diff monitors) just hiccup and freeze and stutter, once I switched over to HDMI it cleared up. So I'm not sure if the port is bad, or the cable is bad (cable was brand new) but HDMI seemed to fix it right up like i said. Great entry level PC.

    The motherboard in my main PC decided to bite the dust Memorial Day weekend so I bought this on sale as a backup.. It's not bad for the price.It looks nice and It plays games like PubG, Dying Light and Just Cause 3 pretty well enough for me (A "scrub" grandma). It didn't want to run COD WWII though. It's great for regular web surfing/streaming videos and things like ROBLOX games the grandkids like.
