    good value imho. the ddr4 sped will throttle the 3700x, but overall a nice build assuming PSU is sound.
     
    C4C and Darren like this.

    I hate to sound like a noob, but what's that mean exactly? ... Also got COD MW with it, digital, they'll send it by email on the 25th. Never played COD but excited to check it out

    The RAM speed of that PC is 2400MHz. Ryzen CPUs run better with a faster clock speed, such as 3000MHz or 3200MHz. It's kind of like increasing the speed limit on a road as traffic flows better with Ryzen processors the higher the speed limit.

    You won't lose too much performance, maybe 5-10FPS depending on the game.

    A really in-depth and informative video explaining this:

    I think it's a pretty awful deal. Cyberpower and iBuyPower have an excellent track record of shipping PCs with abysmal power supplies. I've seen it myself many times. Additionally, the power supplies are severely underpowered. The SSD is likely a DRAM-less variant that will just outlast the warranty. Also notice how it comes with an measly 1-year warranty.

    2400MHz RAM coupled with a 3700X is really unacceptable, especially considering 3200MHz doesn't cost much more. The 2060 Super doesn't really make sense for this build.

    None of this really matters when you realize this PC is grossly overpowered for someone in trading.

    I hate being a negative Nancy, but I'm not seeing the positive in this purchase.

    I know its not the best computer out there, its definitely more than I need. I'll be playing some games on it, like Modern Warfare (came with purchase) and Madden 20. Ultra settings for MW are a little bit too much for this graphic card but more than enough for the recommended settings. Think I'll be happy with the purchase. If I was a serious gamer I would have bought everything individually... don't plan on getting another PC for at least 5 years so wanted to buy something decent

    Monitor shipped today but not computer...

    Depends on the market, I think OmniDyne would find it hard to buy those parts with Windows etc for the same price.
