All the parts+mouse/keys and OS bring this rig to roughly $1200 give or take

you couldn't build this for cheaper, in other words. Only iffy spot would be the Power Supply, but that's not super expensive.

I would junk the power supply and CPU cooler, buy better ones, then take it apart and put it back together. I don't trust Cyberpower or any of the low tier custom PC builders. And the keyboard and mouse have to go as well. That means I would spend an extra ~$250 if I had no parts laying around to build it to my liking.

What does open box mean?


It usually tends to mean that someone ordered the computer, took it out of the box for a day, didn't want it, and returned it.

Although if you want a serious answer, it means you open the box and it's ready. No assembly required.
