Pros

  • Affordable. The first pro of this gaming PC is perhaps the most obvious: price. The CyberPOWER PC GXIVR8020A4 gaming desktop is priced very low, making it one of the cheaper options if you are looking to purchase a reliable gaming computer. This price is quite low compared to other gaming desktops, but that's just the beginning. The excellent variety and strength of its various components from its 7.1 audio channel system to its Intel Core i5 processor usually translates to a much more expensive complete product. The RX 580 video card also highlights the affordability of its price tag.
  • Quality components. The second pro of this gaming PC is the excellent quality of its various components. While the i5 Intel Core processor is not the most powerful processor for a gaming computer on the market, it is reasonably powerful given the product's price tag. The RX 580 video card is also an excellent item, contributing to the desktop's capability of running games at 2k on ultra graphics settings. The 1024 GB mechanical hard drive provides plenty of space and power so you can run your favorite games on your desired settings. It can even allow you to run games at 4k quality, though the graphics settings will have to be slightly lower than if you select 2k or lower quality instead. This is a small price to pay considering that the components are excellent quality and 2k quality will suffice even for most serious PC gamers.

Cons

  • Power supply. It is unknown what power supply is used for the CyberPower GXIVR8020A4  Gamer Xtreme gaming desktop and this can prove to be a problem if you encounter a problem with it. The power supply can fail to adequately supply power to the entire machine from time to time, leading to slower performance and possibly a complete lack of certain features. Repair can also prove difficult due to the unknown brand of the power supply, since defective parts might be hard to locate if they need to be replaced with the identical components. This power supply can also face some strain if you are regularly gaming at 4k quality and this is certainly something to consider if you are thinking of purchasing this computer. However, most customers have overcome this problem after some repair if and when they do encounter a problem involving the power supply of the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme gaming desktop.
  • Lacks second monitor. The CyperPower Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8020A4  gaming desktop also lacks a second monitor. While the monitor it does have is a high-quality monitor, lacking a second monitor may impend your ability to stream games with maximum ease. Without a second monitor, you could not monitor the feedback you are receiving from fans or easily resolve any issue with the stream until you tab out of the game to check. The lack of a second monitor also means you would be unable to do anything else with your gaming desktop while you are streaming without tabbing out of the game and halting your stream.

VERDICT

I would definitely recommend purchasing the CyperPower Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8020A4  gaming desktop. It is highly affordable and yet still has many great features despite its price. The 1024 GB hard drive in addition to the 802.11 ac Wi-Fi are excellent features that are often not found on comparable gaming desktops in the same price range. The free lifetime tech support provides an additional layer of security, allowing you to use your gaming desktop without worrying about needing help for any technical issues you might encounter with this gaming desktop. However, it is important to note that this gaming desktop does have some flaws. The keyboard and mouse are not the highest quality and some users have encountered a problem with the power supply. In my opinion, these flaws are excusable considering the affordable price tag.
