Spend an extra 40 bucks and get yourself a decent PSU. Chances are the PSU that's in is JUST maybe barely enough to power everything. I would get a better PSU before you even turn the thing on. --- We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong. We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

I'd guess $800-900? So not bad for a prebuilt. --- Desktop: Phenom II X4 965 | 8 GB DDR3 | GTX 580 | 1 TB HDD | W7 | 650W Antec | 1600x900 Laptop: A6 3400m | 4 GB DDR3 | HD 6520g | 500 GB HDD | W7 | 1366x768

one other question. Whats the dif between gtx760 and gtx770 they both say 2gb dedicated memory.
It isn't an extensive difference, but with the decent quality PSU in it you don't have to void the warranty replacing it.
I'm almost tempted to buy one myself, but I prefer laptops. --- ASUS G73jh i7 720/Mobility HD 5870/6GB DDR3 1404MHz/Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid HDD

I have to agree with replaciing the PSU. I bought a new prebuilt computer from newegg last month, and after barely 2 weeks the PSU blew out. So now im waiting to get my 850$ brick repaired and returned to me.

There is no need to worry. The difference between buying a prebuilt and a self built is the warranty. Prebuilts have a warranty on the whole system. So easier to get your system up and running again in case the psu do take out other components with it.
This is true, however buying from cyberpower means you pretty much have no warranty as its almost impossible to get in contact with support. Tried a few years back and was put on hold for 20 minutes on several occasions only to be hung up on. Took me about a week to get someone on the phone. Then it took me about a month to get my laptop back from them. Then had the same issue again and it took them even longer to get it back to me. By then my warranty expired so the 3rd time I had a problem they wouldn't do anything. I ended up having to repair it myself. --- Posted using GameFlux
