    Even if you haven't heard of that company, they're running a Gigabyte board, which is another top in the industry alongside ASUS.

    Either system is a win-win, but the faster processor and newer generation of RAM give the CP PC the advantage.
    True, hard choice, but Cyberpower gives me more room for upgrades and as said i have a NVIDIA GeForceGTX 760 SC in old PC ready for this one, heard AMD in it sucks badly, why they used it beyond me. Also noticed a Coolmaster Cooler heatsink in Pic.

    I have 2 SSD's in this PC i can later transfer also and Noctua Fans, but i would not rush it as of yet.
    Look closely at pics at NewEgg see Gigabyte on the motherboard plus a cd in pic.

    Get the Cyberpower, the cpu is better. Too bad that one doesn`t come with the 760, then you`d have 2

    Yeah, figures ASUS came with one, GTX 760 3GB. As said better processor, more room inside for expansion, more connections, will probably will be that one.Oh, Cyberpower has room for dual cards also. As the new cards take up 2 slots begin with.

    My hope is it will be quiet, like a quiet PC.

    Board i was able to see through NewEgg while zooming in, GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD3.

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 2011-3 - GA-X99-UD3 (rev. 1.0)


    Although not so great PSU, some Korean made never heard of Antg. ATM-600FB+APFC . I do have a better one use, Corsair 80 Plus Gold 750M

    That Cyberpower looks much better, newer platform and many better parts, that R9 270 is not falling behind 760, so that is not a problem either. Has SSD too and all of that for less money.

    Yes, done deal made up my mind with CyberPower. As said before i have a NVIDIA GeForceGTX 760 SC from older system will most likely use for this one, also thinking of using a PSU i have from other system which beats this one also. Oh,i do have 2 Crucials SSD's,512GB and 256GB in older system, but that process to swap out i may wait till i know the system is good for awhile.
