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

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:

Style: Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB|Size: Processor: Intel I5-7400 3.0GHz|Verified Purchase
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.

Ultimate Gaming Setup for Pro-GAMERS

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.

R2-BY gaming desk with lift/hide monitor shelf.
R2-BY gaming desk without lift/hide monitor shelf.
R2-BB gaming desk with lift/hide monitor shelf.
R2-BB gaming desk with lift/hide monitor shelf.

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

See what’s going on with these (yeah, I recommend getting two)  24 inch curved gaming monitors from Pixio.

  • 24 inch FHD (Full High Definition) 1920 x 1080 Resolution Professional Gaming Monitor
  • Samsung SVA technology, 178˚ Viewing Angle with Anti-Glare screen

  • Flicker Free, Adaptive Sync, Low Blue Light, 3ms Response Rate, 178 degree View

Pixio PX245c 24-inch 144Hz Adaptive Sync FHD 1800R Curved Full HD 1920×1080 Samsung SVA Professional Gaming Monitor – Get it from Amazon!

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.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse, Ambidextrous Mouse – Get it on AMAZON!

Give your mouse a home, or a pad to roam.

This is ultra cool because it has customizable RGB lighting on the sides.

Razer Firefly Chroma Custom Lighting Hard Gaming Mouse Pad

In order to achieve the perfect balance between control and speed, the Razer Firefly features a hard, micro-textured finish that gives you pinpoint accuracy and effortless speed.

Razer Firefly Chroma Custom Lighting Hard Gaming Mouse Pad (Certified Refurbished) Get it on AMAZON!

Get your ears in the game with the ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Dolby Gaming Headset – Black/Green – Xbox One + PC from AMAZON!

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.

Be heard loud and clear with Razer Seiren Pro Elite XLR and USB Digital Microphone – Record with Professional-Grade Studio Sound from AMAZON!

Ensure you sound exactly the way you want your audience to hear you, and use the included controls to adjust the mic gain and headphone volume.  This mic offers HD recording with outstanding clarity.
