That is a really good price for the power...but... it's Cyberpower. A company known for throwing in a junk PSU so that they can make the computer seem like a better value when it's really not.

So yeah. I would still settle for the 1070 because an OEM PC doesn't have a complete junk PSU like Cyberpower puts in their PCs. Their build quality is also not the best.

I understand your point, the reviews for them seemed a lot better than they were 10 years ago, but that's the whole point of why I reached out here. It makes sense that you're getting what you pay for.

Yeah, avoid generic psus at all cost. They are ticking time bombs, and it's not worth losing peace of mind over.

I bought my PC from cyberpower. Only problem was a faulty RAM stick (common issue when buying RAM), and they replaced it since it was still under warranty. Here's my Specs:

Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB ATX Mid-Tower Gaming Case,
Intel® Core™ Processor i7-8700K 3.70GHZ
3x RAIDMAX NV-R120 120mm RGB Hydraulic bearing Fans
ENERMAX ETS-T40F-BK CPU Cooler w/ Black ENERMAX Twister PWM fans
3TB (3TBx1) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s
500GB Samsung 850 EVO Series SATA-III 6 Gb/s SSD
32GB (8GBx4) RGB Lightning DDR4(GSKILL Trident Z RGB)
27" MSI OPTIX G27C2 1920 x 1080, 1ms, 144Hz, Curved gaming monitor certified with AMD FreeSync™ technology
MSI Z370 GAMING PRO CARBON ATX W/ RGB CROSSFIRE
850 Watts - Corsair RMi Series RM850i 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Fully Modular Ultra Quiet Power Supply
GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti 11GB GDDR5X (Pascal)[VR Ready] [+308] (Single Card)
ASUS PCE-AC55BT 802.11ac Wireless-AC1200 Bluetooth 4.0 w/ Dual Antenna PCI-E Adapter

This was all for about 2500$. Tons of other freebies. But no problems with anything so far. My Desktop is always running 24/7. Temperature is stable 29 celsius. 34 when running games at Ultra settings. It's a dual monitor setup.

Also, if I want to play at 1440p am I shooting myself in the foot by getting a laptop? Will a laptop monitor display 144hz? Sorry I'm a little uneducated on this.

Why do you want these things? There's no need for 1440p or 144fps unless you're a Master Race dingbat who gets off on numbers.

Laptops aren't great for graphically intense AAA type games, but are just fine for lighter weight fare like Indies. I recommend you get a dedicated gaming rig for at home and a middle of the road laptop if you want to game on the go. There is nothing forbidden about having multiple machines with different dedicated tasks.

You need to be a highly competitve person for needing anything higher than 60fps really (although getting 100+ fps is nice). Well VR too needs very high framerate.
