The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA520 is one of the best-looking gaming desktops in the market right now. The black and red color scheme works well and gives you a hot desktop (in looks) to play with. The keyboard and the mouse are made for gaming, and it shows.
There is ventilation on the sides. You can also see through the cabinet in the front and the sides, and that adds a bit to the experience. There are a couple of ports and jacks in the front while the rest are located at the back. You can also find the DVD writer in the front as well.
CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA520 Specs
Check our monitor reviews to find a good monitor to match your needs as this desktop is a standalone one and doesn’t come with a display.
The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA520 is powered by an AMD FX 4300 processor. This is a quad-core processor and comes with clocking frequency of 3.8GHz. The clocking frequency can be increased to about 4GHz when it is needed. This processor has a CPU mark score of 4636 that tells us that this is a decent processor.
Though this processor is not as good as some latest gen Intel Core chips, it does what it is expected of it. It runs the operating system without any hiccups. It is perfect for running games that fall in the mid-range category and can give a push for high-end games as well. For an entry-level gaming machine like this one, this processor does the job.
We have 8GB DDR3 memory that is pretty decent these days. It is sufficient to run most of the games without any problems. Even some high-end games run fine, so this memory should be okay for the most of us. You can also upgrade the memory, but we think that will have microscopic improvement.
The Nvidia GeForce GT730 is the graphics card in the CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA520 Gaming Desktop. This is a discrete GPU, and it comes with a video memory of 2GB and is made on the Kepler architecture. This is an average graphics card by modern day standards.
It can run most of the games with medium to high settings. If you are into online gaming, there will be no problem. As far as other games are concerned, most run well without any performance issues.
There is an enormous amount of space on the 1TB hard drive. This allows you to load your HDD with all the games, movies, songs, pictures, and videos you currently have. It is a mechanical hard drive and, as a result, you will feel that it is slow sometimes. You can upgrade to an SSD if you are keen on performance.
The hard drive also comes with the latest Windows 10 64-bit home edition. This is the latest OS you can get your hands on. It is polished OS and brings back the goodness of Windows 7 to say the least.
The Connectivity game is strong with this one. There are 8 USB 2.0 ports, an RJ-45 Ethernet port, 1 HDMI port, 1 DVI port and also a VGA port. This should be enough to help you with your connectivity issues.
