Coolermaster uses a bunch of different manufacturers and then puts their name on the power supply. I can't find out who made that particular model. It's probably better than the earlier ones you mentioned, but it could be good, bad, or indifferent. I don't know.

I don't know if that hard drive setup is one single drive or two separate units. I'd try to get two separate units.

Not much point in commenting on one or two pieces at a time. Post the entire configuration, with brand names and prices if possible.

And model numbers.

For all I know, you can beat Cyberpower easily with an HP or Dell package. Looks like you are locked into Cyberpower for some reason.

The link I posted earlier was the entire configuration but for some reason you didn't see all the parts don't know why. Don't exactly know how to post the entire configuration any other way. I could try copying and pasting...This is why I suggested though if you could get on the website with the same model AMF FX5 Eight Core Configurator.

Also I am kinda stuck on Cyberpower because I do feel in a way I am getting more for my money than HP.

With HP I trust them but feel limited. I only get 2 graphic cards to choose from, 2 Processors to choose from, and it doesn't come in a pretty glowing case lol.

Power Supplies are certainly one of those areas you want to be sure you get a good quality unit. They aren't all the same.

The amperage on the 12V rail will be important.

Those 800W is probably cheaper for a reason.
A good high quality PSU, lets say a Seasonic x650 as an example, will power things with ease that will bring a cheaper 800-1000W units to their knees.

Something else to watch for, is what exactly does that power rating mean? Continuous or Peak Power? Does it have surge protection? Etc.

If you want to go with a SSD set up, I would go with a SSD for OS/Apps and a HD for user DATA. Or one or the other.
I wouldn't do one of those hybrids.

Raidmax Viper GX Mid-Tower Gaming Case; 80 at Newegg
AMD FX-9590 4.70 GHz (5.0GHz Turbo) Eight-Core AM3+; 260 at Newegg
Cooler Master V650 80 Plus Gold Semi Modular Power Supply; 100 at Newegg
GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD3 AMD 990 ATX; 108 at Newegg
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card; about 330
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/2133MHz Dual Channel Memory (ADATA XPG V3); guessing 80
Microsoft® Windows 8.1 (64-bit Edition); guessing 120

Above are the key components, excluding the hard drive, which I can't trace without a model number.

Price at Newegg for what's listed: $1078


I'm guessing you are locked into AMD processors also for some reason.

Look at this Cyberpower at Newegg for 1380:

Here's a bunch of Cyberpower PCs at Newegg, from $1000 to $1500:

Newegg.com - CyberpowerPC, Newegg, $1000 - $1250, $1250 - $1500, cyber power

I'd strongly consider this one:

Power supply could be shaky. But it's cheaper than what you've been looking at.

Add an SSD or another hard drive if and when needed.

The i7 is only 4.0 while the AMD was 4.7 (5.0 turbo) that's why I choose it. This computer going to have to last 6 years at least rofl.
Also all them parts as I said I wouldn't exactly know how to put them together plus do they even come with all the cords?
The computer you linked did it have an SSD? I thought you said I should have one...I'm confused.
The other computer on CyberPower is $1,382.00 including harddrive, already put together, glowing case, glowing keyboard and mouse. 4.7 amd processor.
Was there anything else on my configuration I could/need to change?

Sorry I don't really like I feel it's almost the same setup I already have except it's a little better processor and video card.

Same amount of memory, same sized harddrive. I want to better myself for the long haul. Whether I need it now or not 6 years from now I'll have it.
