I am looking to buy from CyberPowerSystems. can anybody tell me what their customer service is like, etc?

The computer i am looking at is around the 700-900 Pounds budget. The following build i have is:

Antec 900 gaming case. Maximum fans fitted.

Hiper Type-M SLI/Crossfire Ready 580 Watt Power Supply

AMD Phenom™ X4 9750 Quad-Core CPU w/ HyperTransport Technology

CoolerMaster Liquid CPU Cooling System (Superior Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA)

MSI K9A2 CF-F AMD 790X CrossFire Chipset DDR2/1066 Dual 16X PCIE SATA RAID MB w/GbLAN,USB2.0,&7.1Audio

4 gig DDR2 ram.

ATI Radeon HD 4870 PCI-E x16 512MB DDR5 Video Card

500gig HDD.


this comes to 881 Pounds, including 64bit vista OS. What do you think of this

I am aware that Intel are performing better in The processor market, but wouldnt it work out the same using ATI + AMD, rather than ATI + Intel.

Also an extra note, I will not be upgrading this pc for a long time, so i will not be buying any parts separately to cut down on costs.

you can get an ip45 motherboard that is crossfire but uses intel cpu's, these overclock easily and are better.

So i would have to use an intel processor?

wouldnt i lose some of the gfx cards performance

I thought the rule of thumb was amd + ati. and vice versa

I dont intend to overclock really.
