Default Re: What computer should I buy? (READ)

THANKS so much for helping me choose a great computer. Now I'm just wondering, would I be able to upgrade this computer in the future if I wanted too? Or would I not even NEED to upgrade it? I guess what I'm asking is, will this computer stay as good as it is, for a very long time? (Maybe 3 years)

Yes, it should be fully upgradeable with a faster CPU, memory and graphics cards if needed.

Now I realize you may not know the answer to this question, but I've been hearing that products manufactured by "CyberPowerPC" fall apart and the hardware break down extremely easily. Is this true?

I'd love to give my opinion. But, no one ever listens to me......


Did anyone even bother to ask what size monitor he is going to use?

There's a possibility of that, just as there are with any pre-built system. They do carry a full warranty and customer service.

Sorry for double post, but also, I really want an Nvidia GeForce GTX 275 graphics card instead of the ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB PCI Express Video Card. Is the radeon as good as it?

Both of these cards are useless until we know what resolution you will be running at.

But what about the other build that AR showed me? You don't like that one?
And the one that you built for me is way over my price limit I believe...
