    www.resellerratings.com is a great tool for getting info on companies. it looks like ibuypower is a better bet, it has a rating of 9.42, compared to cyberpowerpcs 6.60. companies that have lower than average prices usually are not very reliable. the quality control is horrible, and customer service is a nightmare. if i were you, i'd go with ibuypower, simply b/c a complete pc is not something i would risk buying from an irreputable reseller.

    I bought a PC from Cyberpower about a year and a half ago. Had no problems fast shipping and it was well assembled. They ziptied all the wires and even routed all the fan lines around the side of the case. That system is still running great never had any problems, however, when i purchased their resellerrating was a bit higher. Good Luck!

    I've read about a lot of nightmares with cyberpower.

    I researched both of these companies before I decided to build my own. Cyberpower has a real crappy rating with www.resellerratings.com but ibuypower has a pretty good one. But upon further research I find that ibuypower has some not so good complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau . My opinion is beware with either.

    He's right. There must be some way to convince the 'rents' that it would be very educational to build your own. Not to mention save a few bucks.

    Exactly. Show your parents this from www.mwave.com

    They'll assemble, test and warranty a motherboard combo for you. Most times the problems you'll run into with a new build are with the mobo, cpu or memory.

    Hello all just registered and this is my first post.

    Any way, I just ordered a PC from cyberpower Friday. I checked the BBB web page and they only had a few complaints, I figured every company would have at least one or two complaints. But after reading what some people on here are saying I am beginning to get a little worried. Please tell me there are some people on here with some good experiences with cyberpower.
