Which is cheaper?

My budget is around $1600-$1800

Because on Cyberpower they have the Fang III for like $1500, so if you can find me a better build for less or in my budget, that'll be fine.

I think cyber and ibuy are not that bad of deals, with a acceptable mark up.

I would go to newegg and price out the parts and check that price.

Then I'd try building the same pc specs buy searching for deals and sale items. This is where you will find a good deal.

I would also get an ssd to run windows and a Corsair 850tx power supply.

Figure out your hard budget, and when you have cash in hand make a thread then. Literally, when you're absolutely ready to push the buy button. DIY will always grant better performance for the money unless one of those companies has a super deal which usually doesn't ever happen.
