Buying Experience - i.e. how easy was it to pick out the PC i wanted?

I first heard about Cyberpower through a buddy of mine who recently bought one from newegg.com.

He really liked it so i thought i would check them out. I went to newegg and browsed a couple of the premade models. The models were pretty impressive, especially for the price. The model i wanted wasn't in stock so i thought id check and see if cyberpower had a web site. I obviously found one :)

I then browsed around the various sections of the site and was impressed with the amount of detail there was shown when customizing a system.

Specifically, I really liked being able to pick out an OEM for my motherboard, RAM, and Case.   I also liked that i could customize what power supply i wanted and also what video card i wanted as well. Each of these items were well outlined and also easy to navigate through.

One thing I noticed going through the various specials though, is that some did not include the OS, so i had to go through a couple different packages to get the exact price combination i was looking for. I ended up going with a special that included free shipping as that ended up being the cheapest route overall.

Once i picked out my unit, i proceeded to checkout which was seamless. It was easy to fill out the forms and everything was done in just a few minutes. at the end of the transaction, i got a txt document that included detailed specifications regarding my purchase, which i thought was a nice touch.

Tracking- How easy was it to track my order status?

Well the 'Order Status' button made things real easy :) All I had to do was get the order# from my txt doc and input my zip code.

I then got progress regarding the manufacturing, testing and shipping of my PC.

I also like that there was a UPS tracking URL on the site once the order was shipped from the factory.

Arrival - How easy was the setup?

I received two boxes, one that included the PC and the other was a set of speakers.

The PC box also included the manuals and such, and also the original mobo box, which i thought was a nice touch.

From what i could tell on the PC, all cables were in tact and nothing got lodged during shipping. I know this wouldn't have been Cyber's fault, but it was nice to see regardless :) Also , the interior of the case was very clean and there was lots of room left in the system. Nice job on the construction of the system Cyber :)

I proceeded to hook up my PC to my existing equipment and booted it up. it posted and everything but would not actually show the desktop.   

I had to manually restart the PC and boot to safe mode. When i did this, it stopped booting at the universal Plug and Play sys file...

I tried to do a repair using the windows disk, but it would not detect any problems.

Thus I had to re-install windows. The install went smoothly and the rest of the setup was a breeze.

Overall Verdict   

Overall, I would have to say I have had a good experience so far with CyberpowerPC. The one problem i had with the setup i believe was more of a windows 7 issue than anything else, and as I said, the construction of the system was superbly done. I would definately recommend CyberPowerPC to others, especially computer enthusiasts on a budget.

I wasnt planning using crossfire, that was just a really dumb move on my part.

as far as i know though, as long as i keep to one vid card, i should be fine.. obviously it's not optimal, but its working and i really dont want to have to ship back my mobo if i dont have to
