Given their on and off reviews, curious to see how it turns out.  I know a few people from here have had positive experiences with them.

There was a problem with Sandy Bridge Processors so I re order another PC. They are taking 80$ off though, so it isn't too bad.

That's a widespread issue I heard.  That's nice to hear they took care of it.  Definitely is reassuring.

Yeah, but they also ran out of the processor I wanted so they called me and I downgraded to one 10$ cheaper. Not that big of a deal. I do appreciate them calling me twice in two days already, at reasonable hours.

Got my computer in today. It's bad ass. Nothing was loose and the wiring looks fancy. It doesn't make much noise at all and I able to run Crysis on High at 1680 x 1050 with no hitches what so ever. I'm super satisfied with my purchase and I look forward to running some more current and demanding games to test it out.
Cyberpower.com is good in my book. Just thought I'd let everyone know. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

Good to hear you had a positive experience.  Gives me a bit more confidence if I ever go down that road.

What size monitor do you have that runs at 1680 x 1050?  You don't see those too often anymore.  Everything seems to be the 1920 x 1080 these days.
