I'm not a big gamer, so this type of system may be overkill, but I'd like something that won't be outdated and underpowered in a few months. Full Tilt Poker is about all the gaming this PC will see.

Most of this is included in the package. I did upgrade from 2GB to 4Gb of memory, and also upgraded the video card. However, I do need to make sure the video card will work properly. It had a PhysX icon next to it, but didn't have DirectX11. I honestly don't know the difference, so I need to make sure I'm not buying something I will later regret.

I'm still curious about the value, but after reading several reviews about CyberPower / cyberpowerpc.com / cyberpowersystem.com
Cyberpower_PC , I will not be buying from them.

Don't get liquid cooling. It's more trouble than it's worth, especially for that build.

I agree, but otherwise, it's a good computer for a 4 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive, and HD Sound Card.

I purchased a computer from them. Their customer service is almost non existant and they are very slow on shipping and do not do a good job at all on honoring their warranty promises. I would not recommend buying from them ever. There are plenty of other custom systems and laptop builders who have exceptionally good customer service. Just search around a bit more.
I like to think I know a bit about computers, I apologize if my advice is not sound or clear. I try my best to give good answers.
