When it comes to gaming desktop PC’s CyberPowerPC has been becoming more and more popular with their high end machines that are also slightly more budget friendly than a lot of the competition. Today we will be looking at the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8040A5 which is one of their higher end models. Below we will look at some of its biggest benefits and downsides to help you decide if it is the right choice.

The design of a desktop is not always the first thing we consider but it is important for many consumers. This particular CyberPowerPC looks very attractive and a big upgrade from some of the plain looking desktop models that are available.
By going with the powerful Intel Core i7 processor you can be sure that you will have enough processing power no matter if it is gaming or just everyday work you are trying to accomplish.
Included is the AMD RX 580 graphics card which features 4 GB of dedicated memory. It isn’t the highest end graphics card available but still has plenty of power to run modern games.
This model is VR Ready with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift so be prepared to take advantage of this new technology to enhance your gaming experience.
We would never consider the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8040A5 underpowered but we are a little disappointed that it only has 8 GB of memory and would expect more out of a high end gaming machine such as this.
The 1 TB SATA hard drive may have plenty of storage but they really missed out on an important performance enhancing piece of hardware and that is an SSD drive.
The CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8040A5 has a couple of surprising downsides that we didn’t really expect in a model in this price range but overall it is still a great gaming option for most consumers.
