    Alienware systems are using the optiplex chassis with different plastic. very nice lmfao. also, that fan looks proprietary.

    Honestly I don't see why it's counted against HP for cancelling the order since the call was made over hangouts. It's probably not an often occurrence and at least someone took the time to look at it and be like "I can see how this would be a little suspicious" but they should've just sent a confirmation email or called.

    Just as an fyi...I used to work at a major shipping company, and although everyone is trained to not kick, throw, step on or otherwise abuse packages, it was pretty common and I was one of the few who not only actually adhered to official policy, but would take extra precautions with PCs and other electronics.
    For example, I loaded 2 trucks daily, and had a helper who basically just pulled the boxes off the conveyer belt and set them aside for me to sort and load. Now, our supervisor told us in a pre-shift meeting one day that one of my trucks would be loaded with 30 PCs headed to the local military base. My "helper" casually threw these boxes around knowing full well what was inside, until I noticed it and told them off. It was also pretty common for employees to be too lazy to set up a step ladder (one or 2 were provided to every worker) and would just stand on boxes to reach higher shelves in the trucks. Not to mention the unavoidable bumps and shakes that are going to occur in transit.
    The moral of the story: How you package things you ship is very, very important, just for anyone who might question why Linus makes such a big deal out of how these PCs are packed.

    geeze 1500 for that i5 8400 and a 1050? and it was an i3 to start. i got an 8700k, noctua dh15, case, noctua case fans (front and back), 960 evo 256, 1070 ti, and a z370 board with 16gb of ram for about 1200. and 2 1tb hdds. that was shopping some sales but still. i mean hp got them a 1070 and an 8700 at least. why?

    The Origin one looks like plain highway robbery taking place. How can that system have cost the same $1500 as the others? It has an 8400 CPU, 1050Ti GPU and 450 Watt PSU. It is weak as hell.
    I mean the other systems had 8700K and 9600K and 1070 cards ffs.

    COD 4 won't even run properly on a 1050Ti. I have one of those in my notebook and it performs almost on par with the desktop version, let my buddy play on that notebook while I played on the desktop and that GPU is barely enough for lowest settings COD4. Just lucky that I use that notebook for productivity instead of gaming.

    Apart from their apparently useless customer service, how is Cyberpower as a builder? I can actually get quite a good deal on one of their pcs at the moment, but I'm a bit apprehensive about the build quality/ customer service after purchase.

      Although, one area I just remembered that they were lacking on in my order. I ordered the system online and just got the tower only, no monitors as I was using my current monitor that I'd purchased at best buy. The system cost (in 2012) was around the same budget the ones here ($1500 USD). They had on the internal box for the shipper to require a signature to make sure that the computer was delivered, they however clearly did NOT communicate this to Fed Ex. The driver informed me that had I not left a note for him to knock loudly on the door since I was more than likely asleep as I worked night shift, he would have simply left the box on the doorstep had I not answered the door in five seconds and did NOT get me to sign anything before leaving the package in my care. So, the only assurance that I BUY POWER had that the system reached the correct destination and was not stolen was the fact I didn't complain.
