CyberPowerPC is another popular option that is very similar to iBuyPower's service and even offers the same free shipping and same day rush service for select models. Another nice feature about the CyberPowerPC website is that you can customize your model and see exactly how much FPS you can expect when used for gaming. As you change internal hardware in your setup, the FPS will automatically update. Additionally the total wattage needed to power the PC will display and update in real time which is perfect for helping you choose the right power supply.
