    Computer Advice?

    Ok well in the coming months I'm going to get a new computer. Yea I know some of you could customize a computer better than this for cheaper, but I'm not going to go through with all of that. I just want advice on what I should change in this setup https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1DGH7X
    My budget is around $1600, so what would you change on that setup? I know @Alen is good with this stuff. Not really sure who else

    You are paying wayyyy too much for that setup man. Never buy a computer like this. Get the parts individually and build it yourself if you want a good gaming rig. Look at TigerDirect or NewEgg.

    Fine
    I don't even know where to begin to comment, that build is just a downright waste of money.

    Hopefully @iverson954360 has more time to waste trying help a lost cause of a build than I do.

    He prolly doesn't know how to build one hence why he's looking at these overpriced joints.

    If you're going with pre-built customs,
    You might as well look on Ebay..save yourself some dough

    For that much of a budget, you could build a very beast computer.

    If you don't know how to build it, just hire some guy to do it for some money.

    You people need to learn to read. I know I could build a computer way better for cheaper, it's just I am not going to go through with all of that, since honestly I am just not cut out for that type of stuff. Nor am I going to pay someone to do it for me. I just want some advice on what to change in this one. It doesn't mean this is my final thing I'm going to get
