Never heard of that company, but assuming that it uses the same PSUs like the one in my system, it's a solid PSU, but not necessarily a great one. It should last you around 2-3 years if I'm correct.

Edit: Whoops, didn't realize that said CyberpowerPC. Thought that said something else.

Sorry about the quality of some of the images above, my phone has a pretty crappy camera and is even worse under bright lights, such as whenever I go outside. Oh, and to clear up on some things, the cat in one of the pictures is named "Marie." She's sweet and at times, can act like a dog. I also made use of the cable ties included with the case after receiving criticism, despite not being much to tidy up to begin with (aside the front of the case).

So a little spoiler about what's to come; Once I finally get my case and an SSD, I might get an RX 580. I say might because my mom might not want me to make that big of a purchase and also for the fact that there's other options (GTX 1060, RX 480). We'll just have to see what comes for later.

Well, taking a look at my PSU, I'd say that it might last for 2-4 years, given it's 80+ bronze.

I tried to get a 240gb SSD from newegg, but I never noticed until now that I ordered it to the wrong address; I'm sure it's delivered by now, but I can't receive it because it's at the old place I once lived at. As for the GPU, that came with the old system that I got from the prebuilt; matter of fact, half of the parts used were from the old prebuilt. I just forgot to clarify that in the description.

It used to be an AM3+ CyberPowerPC with half decent specs. That said, I completely forgot to mention that half the parts I'm using were from the prebuilt, which is where I got the name from. Probably should've been more clear about that.

Sometimes I play warframe, and while I don't have an exact measure on how high the FPS is, it runs pretty smoothly even on high settings. I think it's mostly because it runs pretty smoothly on nearly every system, but I think it might be pretty bloated nowadays. CS:GO also runs pretty great on high settings as well, this time with an average at around 80-100 FPS. On certain maps though, it runs a tad choppy, so there's that.

Thanks. Also, in regards to the motherboard, it technically can "support" 125w chips, it does it very poorly though because of the 4 pin connector for the CPU, which, in turn, will cause a really bad power phase. Not sure how badly, but who knows? As for Ryzen, I'm on a pretty tight budget, and so far, it's kinda getting complicated. If there's any major updates to my build, I'll be sure to post on it. For now, I'm stuck with an FX system. But hey, it works!

You're not wrong, and thankfully, since my birthday's not too far from here, I could get some upgrades for ryzen. The board is still likely to be micro ATX though because ATX is a bit expensive for the budget I want to work around.

Well said with pretty much every budget prebuilt; I will say, however, the PSU was a genuinely nice surprise for me. Wish we had more of these pop up in other budget prebuilts.

thanks man, so far the PC works fine with KSP and TF2, only issue i've had with this setup was that the monitors built in speakers stopped working because the wire somehow disconnected from the inside of the monitor (no external wire) according to the troubleshoot, which i have absolutely no clue how that happened, so I have to stick with my ear phones for now. Other than that, its been working out for me very well
