I have been rammaging through the internet for a good PC to start gaming on. Has anyone heard of the CYBERPOWERPC BattleBox Ultimate SLC8600A PC? Admittedly, I do not own the PC but a friend I visit occassionally owns it. From the few hours I've been using it, it feels like a solid rig. But my experience with computers is limited so I don't exactly know what I'm looking for. I just know the price tag is not exactly friendly and I wouldn't want to buy it only to find another cheaper value gaming PC.
 
I've seen a couple of reviews online and an unboxing video on YouTube, but I would like to know if there's anyone here who's used it. 
 
Thanks in Advance.
P/S. I ahve asked the same question on onaother forum but didn't have any replies. Please help, don't ignore.

Way overpriced with old technology. Just forget it.

 

Can you build computer yourself? Your budget is?

Agreed, there are far better price pre builts.

As for builidng it themselves prices for GPU's are still too high for making a good gaming rig for under $1000 and same goes with RAM

 

I would go with OriginPC A far more reputable PC builder, they are fairly reasonable too

Again there is originPC if you are unsure of your skills as a PC builder:

 

https://www.originpc.com/

 

There is also cyberpowerPC themselves but with far newer hardware:

https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

 

Now the thing is that PC building isnt that hard, there is no soldering nor any hardcore programming needed.

Time and patience is the only requirement.

However thanks to cryptocurrency (bitcoin) getting a graphics card at suggested retail price is rather hard.

So at this time it may be cheaper to get pre built,at any other time the opposite is true but if you looking for something like the GTX 1080 a pre built will be cheaper.

 

I personally would deal with origin, I hear great things about them

 

There is also maingear too:

 

https://www.maingear.com/

 

Hear they are good as well
