For me the best part of PC gaming is actually building the PC lol

Totally agree with Simon,
I purchased an £1800 system from CyberpowerPC around 4 months ago, it is awesome and the packing and delivery was first class. I could have built the system myself and saved around £100 if I shopped around to different shops for each item, but then I would have also had the issue of putting it all together and problem solving any issues I may have encountered. CyberpowerPC do seem to build and ship at very low overhead costs. I will put this one down as hot, but have not checked out the components, I just wanted to give my view and experience on things.

Which is fair and really sets the tone for the one of two different viewpoints on PC building vs prebuilt. The challenge, satisfaction and savings are worthwhile to many.

I think when spending over a grand, £100 for someone else to build, check over and provide warranty is pretty good providing you are 100% happy with spec and not desiring to make alterations anytime soon.

Only reservations here are how reputable is the supplier, in comparison to some of the big PC Builders?

Had a laptop from CyberPower that was £1500, constant issues, they didn't even put a WiFi chip in it sent a USB stick instead, would get so hot it burnt my legs but they weren't interested.

Never again.

Will it be just the case of installing an os and it's ready to go? What about drivers etc? Will these be pre installed.

I got a gaming pc from Cyberpower and had nothing but problems. I've got one from Scan now and the build quality is so much better.
Good price for the spec though

I rate Cyberpower myself. Bought a rig a couple of years ago and it still works great with no issues. Only thing I would suggest is to get one through the site so you could use a configurator. The stock coolers for CPU’s aren’t that great when you head to power territory that and the default power supplies may not have the longevity needed. It’s relatively inexpensive to change these (in the grand scheme of things) and you can tailor your rig better.
It seems ok for a pre built, for those that don't want to pick their own parts. That's mainly my reason for building. I specify every single component and can usually up spec everything when I see deals.

For example this has DDR4 RAM, but what speed? It is probably slow 2400MHz. The SSD is the same, it's small and could be relatively slow. The board is a budget chipset and the cooler appears to be the stock Intel one, when just a £20 item is far superior and easily worth it.

However for anyone just dipping a toe into PC gaming it's the entry point. Personally think I would start with something cheaper and then figure out fitting my own upgrades like graphics cards later if I am happy. That's how I started out.

Thanks for sharing - £100 seems a very low overhead and I assume you get a warranty & support. Personally I'd rather build my own (that way I know exactly what's in it!).

As for the OP have some heat!
Hey All,

Glad this is getting heat and could help some people who prefer the pre-built route!

I've been out of the PC building game for over 10 years so unsure of what components would pair up well - have we got any PC building wizards who could show me the way?!

I'm ideally looking for a PC for gaming (obviously) that can handle most games at High/Ultra, so willing to spend around the £1300 mark as an absolute maximum. Due to my field of work I also require a minimum of 16gb RAM due to running VM's. A nice SSD/HDD combination would also be useful...

As for the other components I'm really unsure. Does anybody have any great example parts/builds?
Cheers!

It’s okay saying you want to play games at ultra, but what resolution do you need? For example a 1080ti is overkill for 1080p, but only one of those is not enough for decent 4K gameplay at high graphics thresholds. Could you be more specific?

Going of the few comments i don't think you get anything extra for the £100 in terms of customer service.
I would be somewhat cautious of using these guys. I bought a PC a few years ago from them and it was overheating. When I took it apart it turned out they hadn't taken the protection off from the cooler so there was a solid layer of plastic between the CPU and cooler

Not too fussed to be honest - 1080 would be fine, however 1440p would be a nice bonus if that's achievable within my budget!

Yeah, I love building too, but for once I had a break
Careful if you want to upgrade this. It has Hyper X Fury 2400MHZ ram... but that's the fastest this motherboard can take (MSI H110M). So if you want faster RAM, you'll need a better motherboard too.

If someone is trying to do this build, here is a list as close as I could get (couldn't find the same psu and unsure what brand HDD)

uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/hZGR8Y

Which comes to £1199.00 ... so not much in it than self build!

How's this build for just under £1300:

You could probably make it cheaper changing the psu or case... and more by changing the graphics card if this one is way more than you need.

I mean, it's really not their fault that it burns your legs...

Overheating is a persistent issue with laptops (particularly powerful ones) was it made to your specifications or did you buy pre-built?

I'm sure the wi-fi dongle was mentioned in a description or something, it just sounds like you overlooked something.

As far as I can see from the specification listing, the motherboard is the Intel B360 chipset motherboard, not H110, or is this another case of Amazon giving the wrong product details? An H110M motherboard isn't compatible with an Intel 8th generation CPU like the i7 8700 in the specification sheet, though is compatible obviously with the i7 7700 in your helpful partpicker build. If the product listing is correct and it is a B360 motherboard, you can change out the memory for faster than 2400Mhz but unfortunately only up to 2666Mhz, so not much point I guess unless you have some lying around.

I would say it seems like a reasonable deal but not having the option to change out the power supply for something gold or bronze-rated is frustrating. Buying a gaming PC from Cyberpower themselves gives you the option to change the power supply option in most of their builds using their build configurtor for whatever model you choose. I think you are saving roughly £116, so I've given heat.


edit - I think the motherboard might be a AsRock B360M HDV; I can't find a 'Warrior' model on their site, so I used the Weekly Sales 3 model and changed a couple of things to be the same build as the Amazon listing. AsRock B360M HDV was the only B360 option there and also the only B360 option with one of their 'VR' models.

I was going through the previously asked questions on the Amazon page to find the motherboard and ram... I know of the cpu incompatibility but saw in one of the q that they used the 7 series i7... which if true is a misleading description.
I think this is an OK buy in terms of not being overly charged compared to self build. Most enthusiasts will know that prebuilts are always heavily restricted when it comes to upgradability so it's a choice you have to decide.
