EDIT:

Well after doing some research i learned that the stock psu's are bad news.. so last night i ordered a SeaSonic Platinum-1000 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Power Supply, its due to arrive on Monday, the pc will be here on Wednesday. So i will take out the stock psu, and rewire with this one. I also placed an order on ebay and picked up an additional 6 140mm fans to pack this sucker with air flow. I've been reading reviews on this case all week, and people love it. I'm thrilled to the bone.. HOWEVER, i noticed there's a second package coming with my computer? any idea's what it is?

so I ordered this computer and it has taken a little over a month for a fully custom pc that had 2 back ordered items. (the ssd and the 7970) Its not here yet but i'm more than happy with the customer support I've received from Carlo C., and the constant nagging from me hasn't made him angry, he's gladly updated me every step of the way. SO far 5 stars cyberpower. now lets see when it comes. WILL BE UPDATING THIS THREAD WITH PICTURES AND A VIDEO. A fellow i work with has also ordered his SECOND cyberpower pc and he's happy with the service as well. I say this because of all the horror stories i've read.. seems to be the happy guys don't make it here to compliment them, just the unhappy folks. will keep everyone posted.

Hello guys, just ordered a new computer. Shopped around quite a bit. Decided that the cost of parts through cyberpower was cheaper than obtaining them on my own and building it myself. Will be making memory upgrades in the near future, wanted to try out the hyper-x first.

By far the biggest problem: that crappy 800 watt "Standard Power Supply". Spend an extra $76 and get the 850 watt, 80+ Bronze Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2; if you need to "pay" for it, that case might look nice but it's short on function for the price. The HAF 912 saves you $77. The SSD is a poor choice due to it's quirky Sandforce controller; for gaming the 120GB Intel 320 is much better (it uses a proprietary controller), or for video editing/3d rendering the 128GB Plextor PX-128M2P is the best price/performance model. The liquid cooler should be push-pull for best results, and the RAM should be 4GBx2.
 
If this is a gaming computer, your best bet is to cancel the order and rebuild it using the Gamer Xtreme 1000 SE base with an i5-2550K processor. An i7, especially a six core, is overkill for gaming, since the only difference between an i7 and an i5 is the i7's hyperthreading that's not used in games; the i5 will save you $100+. Note also that CP -- and everyone else -- has had a very hard time with inventory on the i7-3930K.
 
But...that Standard PSU must go!

The main objective behind the pc for the most part is to run options trading software and charting on multiple displays. Having the multiple cores is definitley going to be important. i realize the psu is somewhat of a pos, but its something i can change out in the future. the drive had great reviews. Thanks for your input i'll keep those suggestions in mind for any future modifications. pics coming soon :)

It might have good reviews, but check into the reliability of it's Sandforce controller. The Plextor I referenced has the Marvell controller, which has a much better record on reliability. The best, fastest SSD is no good if it fails, and Sandforce-based SSDs fail far more often...
