My Alienware was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Got a text from Dell saying it wonít be delivered until late April now. I canít wait that long. Samís and Walmart both have Cyber Power gaming PCs I can go pick up. Anybody have any thing to say about the quality of these units or should I hold out for the Alienware?  Thanks

I've got 2 directly from cyber power, first in 2010 and it's still running strong. The 2nd in 2020, no issues with either. If i was only playing AH i'd still be using the older one.

BestBuy has a sale on prebuilt gaming PCs.  I think they are trying to sell off the rest of the 30xx video card systems so the can start to push the 40xx series cards.

$300-400 off systems built by ASUS, Lenvov, MSI, HP Omen, etc.   Might be worth checking out...

Is the Alienware refundable?

So any Cyber Power will run the game fine?  All Iím wanting to do is play this game and download and save pictures that I take. I wonít use it for anything else.

Thanks to all who have commented.

I've had two Cyberpowerpc machines.  Love them both.  I bought them online, so I could configure them myself; no idea what the pre-builts are composed of, but I expect they're more than adequate.

Built every desktop from scratch starting with a 286 in 92

Been upgrading that box since :)

They aren't that complicated imo and enjoyable and educating to build

Post the specs of the one/ones your looking at here and these nuts will give you the ya/nay for it. The statement "any Cyber Power will run the game fine?" is not good. Im sure some will be weak computers due to cheap video cards and such. Quality wise, yes cyber power does a good job and they last well.

The specs are important, dont cheap out.

Here are 2 that are in stock at best buy

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-tracemr-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-5-5500-8gb-ddr4-memory-nvidia-rtx-3050-480gb-ssd/6510801.p?skuId=6510801
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/skytech-gaming-archangel-3-0-gaming-pc-r5-3600-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1660-500g-ssd-8g-memory/6471873.p?skuId=6471873

Both are rated better then my computer for both video card and video card specs. RAM is 8gb but those are super easy to upgrade on your own. Those have AMD chips but they are rated better going by Userbenchmark.

My pc has an intel i7-3820 rated at 3.6 ghz and a geforce gtx1060 3gb. I can run AH perfectly fine. I dont have every single shiny thing enabled as a lot of the eye candy doesnt appeal to me, and the game runs for me at 59fps in the main arena. I have no desire to use VR for anything so this computer meets my needs to play the game. I built this myself so parts wise it was cheaper to build it rather then buying a pre built one. I got lucky on this one, someone upgraded their computer and didnt want this one anymore. I got the case, motherboard,  32gb ram, and cpu for free since they was going to toss it in the garbage since they got a new gaming pc and "this one wasnt good enough for them" I just moved my video card to it and bought a SSD and reinstalled windows 7 on it. Couldnt pass it up.

That's the way to do it.  Why should the assemblers have all the fun?     :)

Any, absolutely not. I get the specs and post them, Iíd say good chances it will if itís a gaming machine.

I bought mine online and upgraded a few items to fit what Iíd use it for, which was gaming and graphic design work. If you go online they have hundreds of combinations to choose from and with the ability to swap cars out youíre talking about hundreds of thousands if not more possible PC builds.
