CyberpowerPC Desktop PC Gamer Ultra 2098 FX-4000 Series FX-4300 (3.80GHz) 8GB DDR3 500GB HDD AMD Radeon R7 240 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
CyberpowerPC Desktop PC Gamer Ultra 2098 FX-4000 Series FX-4300 (3.80GHz) 8GB DDR3 500GB HDD AMD Radeon R7 240 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

Pros: -Radeon HD 6670 1 GB Graphics card (Budget gfx card, not amazing but will run most games on "high" settings) -Processor (Budget AMD Processor, very fast and quality for the overall price of the PC. Motherboard is Gigabyte which is a great manufacturer of budget MOBOs.) -Case (Great airflow and room for extra stuff) -Hard Drive (Not too large, fast speed, decent budget HDD)

Cons: -PSU, the PSU that comes stock has many complaints about it failing and blowing out, etc. ... this is easily replaceable though. (As I did) -Fans, the fans that come with are loud and very low quality. You can easily upgrade these though and get some nice quality Antec fans (different colors too! I hate red personally..) for around $30 or so. -Heat Sink, there's a lot of complaints here about the heat sink making grinding sounds and just overall not performing very well. You can easily (well, somewhat easily) replace this as well. I did this, I bought a nice Zalman CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball and replaced it myself. Took a bit of work, but it was well worth it because it's an extremely good quality heat sink. -Keyboard and mouse, complete junk. Don't use them at all. The keyboard's box literally talks about being compatible with Windows 2000 and ME... seriously? Lol - what do you expect spending $600 on a computer though? Make sure you have a better keyboard / mouse ready to use.

Overall Review: Like everyone else who looks at these reviews, I saw some good reviews here and some scathing. The good ones well outweighed the scathing and I have fairly decent computer skills so I decided to take the chance. After reading through the scathing reviews I got nervous after having made the initial purchase, so I decided to immediately purchase a new PSU, fans and heat sink. Good thing is: It's a budget gaming PC. Bad thing is: It's a budget gaming PC. You can't expect serious quality when you buy budget, it's just the way the world works, right? The good news is, if you're reasonably smart and have more than a 1/10 in the technical skill department, you can probably do what I did and just replace the pieces of this that are extremely cheap quality. AKA, the PSU, fans, and heat sink. This PC has 7 / 10 things great about it, and for the stuff that's not great - you can change that yourself. You're a gamer on a budget after all! ;-P Hope this helps everyone else looking
