i dont know man... sometimes you can build one for cheaper, but sometimes CyberPower is cheaper.
If you get bored like me, pick a computer off of some site/company, and pick the parts from newegg (including OS and shipping, but excluding the Freebies), and see how much of a difference it is.
I got bored and did one awhile back, and CyberPower was only charging about $50 more than building.

if you think about it, CyberPower probably get their parts as "true" wholesale price, so selling it for that price, they still make a decent amount of money.
Newegg doesnt sell the parts to us a "true" wholesale price, because if they did, then Newegg wouldnt be able to make any money.

EDIT -
Newegg Build
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=11069668
Sub Total = $2,048.78 (without Shipping, freebies, etc.)

Quote:
the grand total was $2100 with 3 day shipping and a rush 3 day service
So it looks like he got a good deal with the freebies, 3 day rush, and 24 hour support.

*NOTE* not all the parts i found is the exact one that he will be getting, though its fairly close.
