I cant believe someone suggested a dell over cyberpower, or in general. Go with Cyberpower. They built good computers. Ibuypower is ok too, but cyberpower is the best.

no
as with most prebuilt computers they put rubbish onboard graphics on it and it wont have a agp or ci-e slot to upgrade so ul be stuck with it unless u get a pci card which with be lacking performance cos of the slot. also that ram is slow and not enough of it imho. would be a waste of money

Bought from cyberpower a few months ago. The cables where messy, the floppy drive didn't work, and one of the drive covers was forced (bent) into place. But then again I went for just about the cheapest you could get so I wasn't overly upset at the fact that I had to do some of the work myself.

i was researching for a computer that i wanted to buy for like a year
i end up buying from cyberpower

i was calculating prices like krazy
i did the math for newegg
cyberpower
ibuypower
and alot of other sites
for separate parts

cyberpower end up being the cheapest and the thing is that
certain parts you add from cyberpower, the parts are discounted
cuz its a reseller, they get wholesale

so my suggestion is on cyberpower

they are a bit messy at times, but overall, they are good

when you first get their computer, you can't turn it on yet, cuz of the HD power isn't plugged in

so thats about it
