Let’s Break Down a Syber Computer, Component by Component
We at Syber are certain many individuals in the world of computing are skeptical of what Syber has to offer. After all, it’s probably a mystery how things affect the wallet once you walk out of the store with one of our Syber bundles. A lot of computer enthusiasts argue building your own PC from barebones components is the more cost-efficient route to take. Syber is here to show you how much money you can actually save from choosing one of our machines. Prices are subject to change, have been picked from multiple online sources, and are often rounded tax-free for the sake of simplicity. We’ve made sure to back up the prices with links to show you the value of a Syber computer. Our goal is to remain unbiased and modest with the price of the opposition.
We’d like to break down the Syber M Xtreme 400 computer. With the default components selected for the build, the computer out of our factory totals less than you might think. Let’s take a closer look:
The processor alone is an intel i7-6800K processor. The cheapest we’ve seen around the virtual shopping mall is listed at 380. This is a 6-core processor with hyperthreading enabled and “unlocked” for overclocking, naturally one of the fastest on the market. Of course you’d need something beefy to cool it down, which is where the Asetek 120mm Liquid Cooler comes into play. We’ve rounded down the price of the cooler to a mere 50.
Next is the memory for the PC. We’ve rounded this one down again to a mere 100. Feel free to check the prices on many websites out there as we’ve done the research and can vouch that $100 is pretty low for the Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 RAM (four sticks of 4GB).
The hard drive for the Syber M Xtreme is a SanDisk Z410 480GB combination SSD and standard hard disk. It’s a more difficult component to find, so we took the average price of just the solid state drive and then increased it by 50 to compensate for the 3TB hard disk. That brings the total to 200.
The default motherboard is a difficult part to find, but the places it turns up list the board at a range from 260-300. We’ll stick to the conservative side (as we’ve been doing) and round the MSI X99 Tomahawk motherboard down to 250.
Arguably the most expensive part in a computer (depending on intent of use), the video card for the M Xtreme 400 is the GeForce GTX 1080. The cheapest card we’ve seen online is a whopping 600.
The 600W power supply we’ve picked out with an 80+ power efficiency rating averages about 50 online. We consider that a modest price.
LG doesn’t mess around with their optical drives. The 14x internal Blu-Ray burner drive doesn’t come cheap at 100.
Keep in mind that purchasing a Syber M computer comes with a Windows 10 Home license for the operating system and a 100-dollar gift card for the Windows Store. That’s valued at 200 dollars. To add, you’d need a case for the computer, and the most generic case we’ve found (not a refurbished or used, keep in mind) is 20. Assembly, if you’d prefer to have a technician do so, is usually priced around 150, but we’ve decided to round down again to 100.
So, one last breakdown:
CPU and Cooler: 430
Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4: 100
SanDisk Z410 480GB w/ 3TB hard disk: 200
MSI X99 Tomahawk Motherboard: 250
GeForce GTX 1080: 600
600W 80+ Power Supply Unit: 50
LG Blu-Ray Optical Drive: 100
Windows 10 Home License with 100-dollar Gift Card: 200
Case and Assembly: 120
You’re looking at $2,050 USD, without taxes, with rounded-down totals, and a case that doesn’t compare to ours. The Syber M Series is shipped to your door pre-assembled in our warehouse by experts that build these computers daily. It totals out to $1,895 USD. That’s a savings of 155 dollars for the default M Series computer.
We’ll let you decide what the better option is, for yourself, or the lucky someone you’re buying a Syber computer for.
