HeyDerp gives this one a 5 star recommendation for awesome components, (Intel i5-7400 3.0GHz processor, NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphic card with its own independent 3GB of memory, storage of 1TB hard drive plus an extra 120GB SSD, memory is 8GB DDR4 RAM.
All these above mentioned goodies are showcased in a see-through black and red light up LED case. AFFORDABLY PRICED UNDER $900!
What this means in the gaming arena is that you get THE BEST “Bang for your Buck” processor – the Intel i5-7400. If you are playing an MMO game like Minecraft, this processor has the core strength to run your game smoothly, quickly and lag-spike free. You need high frame rate per second, to render items and opponents moves. BenchmarkLabs demonstrates a high FPS rate of 744 playing vanilla Minecraft on a gaming PC with an Intel i5 + NVIDIA GTX 1060 combo. This is really good performance, watch the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlepLpfEcyM
Here is what others are saying about the Cyberpower PC Gamer Xtreme VRGXIVR8060A4
After exhaustive research, finally ordered this PC.
Was looking for VR capable, upgradeable, and SSD system drive.
While there are more options available on the vendor’s website, I decided to get this model through Amtazon.
Very minor cosmetic quality issues:
– Clear plastic window had rub marks along the bottom (inside).
– “Intel Core i5” sticker crooked.
Pleasantly surprised that the installed 8GB SDRAM DDR4 was a single DIMM occupying only one of the 4 slots.
Means easy upgrade to 16 & 32GB+ without having to toss the already paid for DIMM.
Ordered “Display Port” cable for connecting to my primary monitor which is running flawlessly.
(wanted to keep the HDMI free for future VR)
System runs very quiet and boot is lightning fast thanks to the SSD.
Haven’t really pushed the envelope yet. Will Update the review if there are issues.
Would give 4.75 as the only issues were cosmetic.
Purchased this as a gaming and family use computer. Unboxed, set up, and it works exactly as it should. As a side note, the exact specs of my computer are: CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXIVR8060A4 Desktop Gaming PC (Intel i5-7400 3.0GHz, NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB HDD, 120GB SSD, Win 10 Home) Black—and it was shipped with a WiFi USB adapter. I had read other reviews after purchase, was unclear if I would be able to connect to my wireless network, so went and bought one. This was unnecessary for this particular product. Super happy with this computer.
Just received yesterday, a day earlier than expected. Easy setup but came with no instructions. Quiet. Haven’t pushed it’s performance yet but initial indications with software installs, web rendering, etc., it makes me think that the existing reviews stating that it’s a great entry-level gaming machine are accurate. Love the SSD for fast startup and adding a 2nd monitor today.
Hi, HeyDerp here to enlighten you on what an actual Pro – as in professional, PRO-GAMER might be using right now at their computer gaming station to read this very blog post.
Just so you can understand the level of “pro”-ness in this set up, I offer you my amateur gaming set up for a comparison.
First things first, start with a desk to put all of the gorgeous gaming equipment on.
This ultra cool desk from Prospec Designs can be yours for 599€ without the fancy remote lift/hide electronic mechanism for your monitor, or 799€ with the lift kit. This desk has a full tall tower PC storage compartment on the left side and 2 gaming console shelves on the right.
Second thing second 🙂 the awesomest gaming PC! We’re going with the NEW ALIENWARE AURORA. This PC is fully loaded with top notch gaming hardware like:
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 7700k (6-Core, 12MB Cache, up to 4.6GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology)
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Liquid Cooling: Alienware™ 460 Watt Multi-GPU Approved Power Supply with High Performance Liquid Cooling
Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti with 11GB GDDR5X
Next we need a form of input, I’m recommending the Razer Blackwidow X Ultimate keyboard for exactly that.
In staying with the green theme, check the awesome green glow from the individually back lit keys.
Reason 1: It is a mechanical gaming keyboard so it has very little input lag or delay.
Reason 2: Because the keyboard is mechanical, when typing, it sounds “clicky” – which punctuates your keystrokes.
Reason 3: 80 million keystrokes. Engineered for durability, Razer’s mechanical switches are designed to delivering both top-notch performance and reliable durability time, time, and time again. According to my calculations, this will give you at least 3 years of non-stop Minecraft action.
Now lets wrap your hand around a high end gaming mouse. Check this one . . .
As you see, I’ve chosen the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Gaming Mouse and here’s why.
Reason 1:This is an ambidextrous mouse (hold it in your left or right hand)
Reason 2: Trusted by top eSports professionals, G900 Chaos Spectrum delivers ultra-quick responsiveness that’s virtually lag-free
Reason 3: It is a very “light touch” click mouse, consistently delivering fast, accurate and reliable click performance and a clean, crisp click feel for rapid-fire gaming.
No strings attached – or wires rather. This wireless headset for Xbox One, PC, and Mac delivers top-of-the-line acoustics, ergonomics, and durability that professional gamers demand.
Reason 1: Many reviews I’ve read say these are the best sounding things on the market.
Reason 2: This headset has Dolby 7.1 surround sound so you can hear enemies and objects from all angles. Included software allows you to optimize chat levels and game sounds with the built-in MixAmp™ technology.
Reason 3: Discord certified. Since Discord is all about talking with your friends, they wanted to help you guys out and slap a “good to go” Discord approval on headsets that they love. The Astro A50 headset is also compatible with PC, Mac and Xbox One.
