After booting up this system for the first time I knew it was a gamer's PC. The fans are quiet and the blue LEDs really make the case stand out. Don't let the Intel lovers scare you away from the AMD processor. It runs great and is extremely fast. The GeForce 550 Ti graphics card makes games gorgeous. Running World of Warcraft on Ultra settings brings me Orgrimmar down to only 40 fps at peak times. Be ready to raid between 52-60+ fps in any situation. Star Wars: The Old Republic looks absolutely gorgeous and is flawless in rendering every world, creature, tree and color crystal. Fleets bring me down barely anything form my constant 50-60 fps.

PROS: Quiet running fans, fast CPU and mother board with a fast amount of USB ports totaling 8. Video card is a steal at this tower's price. 1TB HDD is a great buy for anyone these days. USB ports in front along with audio output and voice input make for the ideal spot for headsets. Also the little tray on top are great for extra USB hubs, external storage devices or for looks.

CONS: The case is slightly heavier than expected but nothing to fuss about. The keyboard and mouse that come with it are great for those who are doing a full replace or getting their first desktop but not for hardcore gamers or gamers making the leap to hardcore. The fans do start falling behind after about 5 hours of use from the video card but fans are cheapo to buy and easy to mount

OVERALL: This is a great desktop, I suggest getting a HD monitor to fully enjoy the graphics this guy dishes out. I suggest this to anyone starting out or moving up from an older machine. Components are easy to reach for upgrades as time moves forward.

I'm a die hard gamer but my family has always bought be computers. They were never up to par so I decided to buy this as my first PC. I really love it. It handles games being open while I browse/search the web. I was a little disappointed that the picture shows 6 fans and mine only came with 3. I tried contacting the sender but got no response. The front USB ports are loose as well. I have to pin the cords up to make a connection. Other than that this PC is awesome.

I ordered this computer to replace my old Dell XPS. I was a little leary after reading some of the reviews about Cyberpower PC's. I figured i would give them the benifit of the doubt and order one because the price was right. Now i am glad i gave them a shot. This computer is smokin fast. I run my games at max detail and they run smooth the only thing im thinking about doing is adding some more ram. They did a great job in packing the computer and it booted up fine right out the box. So hats off to Cyberpower for making a great solid machine. If your looking for a great machine at the right price this is the one to get.

This is the first gaming computer I've purchased,and I've been really happy with it so far.I ordered it with Prime and got it the next day.It has worked great right out of the box,the only problem I had was when I checked the hardware with DXDIAG and found out I had a GTX650 videocard instead of the GTX550Ti as advertized from Amazon.So I contacted Cyberpower and they said they weren't offering the GTX550Ti in that model anymore and that they had switched to the GTX650.Anyways I just wish Amazon would change the add to reflect the recent changes.Truth in advertising...

Caveat: I am a computer professional.

I bought this machine and it had hardware problems right off the bat. Would crash without warning, and instantly power down. Every time I would reboot and enter the BIOS, the system was showing that CPU was overheating.

I called Cyberpower and they agreed to send a new heatsink out. However, two weeks later, when it arrived, the PC's existing heatsink had had the thermal paste melt and run into the CPU. Now I am being told by Cyberpower that the PC must be shipped to them and that they will take at least 7-10 business days to repair it, then ship it back.

During this time they asked me for my Windows logon password. When I inquired as to why they would need my Windows password to resolve a hardware-based issue, they said if I didn't want to provide it, I didn't have to. Why on earth would they ask in the first place then?

Shady support, shady product, avoid if you have any sense, which I clearly lacked when purchasing this $900 lemon.

This met my expectations with the price/performance and the product worked with no problems for a month now. Will update later.

Pros:
Would buy again. Fast shipping and brand name parts. This computer has more case fans than any I've seen before. 6 blue LED fans and one variable high spped at rear top. Nice heat sink and processor is so fast I have not seen the temp raise much at all. I did a bench mark test on CPU and GPU with great results. I really don't see any need to overclock. The bios is really easy to configure.
ASUS MGA97 LE R2.0 motherboard Well built tower for the $. Amazon store card allowed 12 months no APR on this purchase.

Replaced the stock hard drive with a transcend SSD and slaved the 1 TB drive. Cold boot in 12 seconds! This thing is screaming fast and has blown out anything I've thrown at it. I also put an ASUS SPDIF optical/coxial ouput in. Optical cable direct to home amp gives great sound. The SPDIF back plate plugged right into the mother board.

Cons: Saw ads online for same brand computer with more features for around the same price.
Found a power supply plug lodged in a case fan.
Stickers on led case fans come off and make scratching noises.
Low price is partially due to OS only installed with some drivers needing to be installed. If your not good at upgrading you'll have hire someone to install all needed progs.

Great Tower for someone that knows how to install extra programs and fix minor problems.
I love it and would buy again.
