Look around at some other kits just to see if there is anything you like. I like the Wave because it's really comfortable to type on, and it has a healthy set of features for having that luxury.

I would recommend almost anything Logitech for sure.

or if you have a best buy near you, then you could always go there and play around with the KB display models there.

my dad has the wave, to me, it feels a little awkward typing on it due to the shape of it. but i am used to my G15 so again it's all personal preference.

They have the Wave at OfficeMax, dunno about Best Buy. But that is a good idea to check out the keyboards there, I did that with Circuit City when it was open, that's what made me want the Wave.

Just to give you a comparison:

The build Hikaricloud put together for you is about the same price (actually less when you consider shipping) as the one I did looking around at sites.

Now for the differences:
cpu: the same
motherboard: way better
video card: better
psu: way better
ram: way better
Monitor: 22" vs 17" do the math.
sata cables: I am sure they would have had some cool color choices for sata cables so we will give this one to the prebuilts

Once again Hikaricloud is the Man.

Default Re: Help Me Customize a PC from Cyber Power or I Buy Power

Ok, so I'm about to buy my computer. I just want to ask a few more questions before I make this investment, so here's to it. First off, would anyone suggest anything to change or modify Hikari's plan? I can spend up to $1,200, so any suggestions for things to buy or acessories would be greatly appreciated (although it would be nice to spend this on some games.) Now, I just want to confirm that this computer can play the latest games pretty well (i.e Sims 3, etc.)? Ok, lastly I have a question on online gaming... is 18 giga hurtz, or whatever fast enough for online gaming? Sorry for all the questions, but I want to be absolutely sure that I get the biggest bang for my buck on the computer. Thanks a million!!!

BTW: Is the wacom intuos mouse and tablet any good for gaming?
