New member and need some advice,I have between 800 and 1000$ to spend on a new rig and want to know whats the best way to go. I have thought about getting one from CyberPower cause I dont have the time to build myself...

Thanks,

$1100...hmmmm....

I'd recommend getting a good monitor and speakers for starters. You'll have to replace the really hi-tech stuff (CPU, RAM, GPU, possibly PSU) in the near future, but the monitor and speakers will probably last substantially longer. If those are crap, you'll have to buy new ones in a couple of years when your system gets old, along with everything else.

You could have just searched (yes, there's a search feature) for your kinda build. There are about 10 topics for a $1000 build posted in the past 3 weeks.

Oh. You're not building? Configure some shite on Cyberpower then, it's probably overpriced by ~$100-200 compared to building, so don't expect to get much.

Going in circles,
Gerry ;)
