CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA4500A w/ AMD FX-6300 Review
Sleek, black with its trademark large glowing neon green downward pointing V, glowing internal green LEDs and a transparent window on the left side of its Viper case, the CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra is a beast of a machine. It has a 3.5ghz AMD FX-6300 six core CPU that is fully overclockable (AMD CPUs power the XBox One and the Playstation 4 consoles). The NVidia GTX 1060 GPU has 6GB of RAM and supports DirectX 12 gaming. It will let you play even the most recent games at 1080 p and at high frame rates, ensuring buttery smooth gameplay. No more using lag as an excuse for why you got fragged in the first minute of your Deathmatch!
Video output is in the form of an HDMI port, a DVI port and a DisplayPort connector. If your monitor only has a VGA connector it’s time to upgrade! No, only joking – you can get a converter dongle to allow your older monitor to connect to one of these ports. But then, your older monitor is not likely to take full advantage of the beautiful video that this system can render. The Nvidia GTX1060 is fully capable of driving multiple screens for maximum visual enjoyment.
You get a 128 GB SSD to use for your OS and apps – and where you should also install your games (to maximise load speed) and a 1TB HDD for storing the game data files, photos, videos, music, etc. Windows 10 Home 64bit edition is pre-installed on the SSD.
All the hardware is crammed into a funky 17.5” high, 20” deep full tower case. A headphone jack, speaker jack, two USB connectors and the power switch can be found on top of the case near the front. At first sight, the case does not seem to include optical drives, but the top half of the case is a two-toned grey and black panel that swings open and provides access to the included 24x rewriteable DVD drive. The bottom of this panel is V shaped and leads down into the lit green neon V and raised black v-flame elements that give the case front a sleek, mean and rugged look. There are 6 USB ports for connecting multiple peripherals (USB 2 only).
The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra comes with a gaming keyboard where often used keys are highlighted in red and which includes 8 unique multimedia keys. You also get a 9 button gaming mouse that not only has a 4000 DPI sensor but also has 5 adjustable weights to suit your gaming style.
The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra comes with a 1 year warranty on parts and labour and free lifetime tech support.
