[Amazon.ca] CyberpowerPC - 3800X/5700XT/1tbSSD/16GB/Win10

Hello. I've been looking for a prebuilt. This PC price just dropped a bit and I think it's a good deal. Thoughts?

Specs are: CyberpowerPC Gamer Supreme Liquid Cool Gaming PC, AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 3.9GHz, Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, 16GB DDR4, 1TB NVMe SSD, liquid cooled, WiFi & Win 10 Home

One thing holding me back from purchasing is I hear that 5700XT has driver issues. Buyer beware. Is this still a thing? Can someone shed some light on this?

Deal ends midnight tonight.

Only a mod can do that. Give them some time to get to your thread.

You posted this here so not technically a repost.

No mention of any important details (RAM specs, PSU OEM, Mobo OEM, SSD OEM) usually means they are using garbage. RAM is 3000 MHz (way too slow for Ryzen) and they don't even tell you the timings or OEM. CPU and GPU are old. Mouse and keyboard probably cost them $10 to throw in. Would be a hard pass from me.

Some people in the comments are saying what parts are in it but it's hard to trust those and exact parts are always subject to change with SI's like CyberPower.

Yes no brands were mentioned, except for the CPU (Duh!). Could be using all the worst brands.
Best shopping deals I got from here:
Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom $300, ZTE Blade V8 Pro $175, Fluld 55' 4k TV $360

Yup. Typically what they do is buy in bulk at different stages, so if two people bought the same PC, they could have different SSD's with completely different performance, but they are both 1TB SSDs (the part they advertise). That is one reason why they never give details, because sometimes they have to source parts from different OEMs, and when they do they pick the cheapest possible stuff. Laptop manufacturers like Dell do the same thing and it's why some otherwise identical machines can have dramatically different performance. I get why some people don't want to have a PC custom built (or build their own) but prebuilts from major brands are almost always terrible compared to the same cost system built piece by piece.

For sure that is garbage RAM though at such a low 3000Mhz, probably really loose timings too. Some of the more prominent YouTubers like Gamers Nexus have also found CyperPower PC's to be built pretty poorly overall.

I have a 5700xt (reference design) and have not encountered any issues. I actually purchased a very similar setup to what you posted, but mine came with a 3900x (also from Cyberpower).

I have not had any issues with the drivers - my only grievance is that the stock cooler can get quite loud (assuming you overclock). If I leave all settings on auto, the fan setting isn't so bad.

For reference, I paid $2099 in November of 2019 for my system.

Stock coolers aren't designed for overclocking, unless you buy one of the really high-end 3rd party cards.

Seems like an alright deal. The video card alone is worth ~$550.
