I think what I posted with a 8800GT is better than the computer from Cyberpower because of the following:

1) Motherboard is better
2) The memory in the Cyberpower is an unknown brand and the one in my post is not
3) The case I stated is a full tower
4) The PSU I stated is more known and reliable
5) It's Cheaper


The only better thing about the Cyberpower is that it has 500GB of hard drive space which you can buy for a little more money. Like THIS one for example.

Well that depends on several things one he don't have to build it.
Two obviously he has very little knowledge on computers parts ect other wise he could of figured this out for him self, granted buying his Parts and separate pieces is much better in my eyes too. We are suppose to try to get him going in a decent computer for his price range as much as possible not trying to get him going with the most expensive parts, I assuming he has his windows xp disk all ready if not he will have to bring that into it too.

If you are going to buy it then I would wait till boxing day because you will see some magic numbers that you will like, and you can purchase better products that way.

Please, never assume. Also everyone likes a second opinion.
We are here to help, everyone needs to start somewhere. If this is his first built, I, as well as many other people here will be more then glade to help.
The decision lies in his hands :)

Kais3r lives in USA, boxing day is Canadian :)
Though there should be many interesting deal coming up on Black Friday.
If you plan on building/buying pre-built in January, there will be lots that has changed, and I suggest what rinconjoe mentioned, read lots and obsorbe information on computers like a sponge.
If you ever have any questions you know where to come :)

Do you guys think that This
power supply will be a good one for this build, a buddy recommended this to me. Also, I think I am going to be wanting 4 GB of ram in this build. I may end up running vista on this build I have just found out, im not sure. Plus, I might get a quadcore

If I were you I'd go with this PSU. It's the best one for your price range that I can find (Hiper's are not very good PSU's).
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817341002
I doubt this PSU would handle two 8800GTS SSC in SLI, infact I wouldn't try it. If you want to go all out and buy a PSU that will your looking at 150-160$. You need to have no less the 60Amps on the 12V rails.

I'd get this memory
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145034

As for the optical drive.
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827129009

How much do you want to spend on a hard drive. Also, there is said to be a new GTS released at the beginning of December, wether or not you want to wait is your call.
