Both were work computers, different jobs for each.
Both are Athlon XP Barton core 2500+ with 1 GB RAM.
The one I built for a little extra price (it has a critical use) is much faster and more reliable. The Cyberpower just runs cad/cam stuff, I finally put a better cooler on it, and it's been cooler. It's just a cheap computer, and I don't mean the price. The price difference wasn't all that great, but the quality was. We really don't need the flashy display on the front that is supposed to display.... something... so we never pushed the issue as we need the PC daily.
They've both been running daily for around 6 years or more. No hiccups with the built one, lotsa maintenance and replacement parts for the cad/cam cyberpower. I just found it frustrating they have no drivers or info. on the system. Fortunately they used off the shelf parts. A check of CPU-Z showed me where to get information on the mobo.
Pretty good if they're still running. I've had to upgrade parts on my Barton, it has a new PSU just got a new hard drive, redid the thermal paste.
The computer I mentioned above is running. I was able to back up the drive then hit F9 & restored the back up image, thankfully it was still there. Had a corrupt hard drive due to user error.
Now, I wasn't around when he got this computer but like you there are no disks, no OS disk and no driver disk.. not sure if he lost them or what but the system we configured for my friend years ago, she got both disks, so IDK. Thankfully he got a Gigabyte mobo, same family as the one my son has so I was able to use his driver CD when I originally worked on it last year.
I've priced out a few systems over the years both with ordering from CP & I buy power, plus just ordering parts.. they were cheaper, especially if you add in the Windows CD you'd have to buy, always saved a few hundred.
I hope the company isn't getting like Monarch.. too big for themselves. I'll use caution when recommending them. If there is a large savings over building, it's worth it, even if I have to upgrade a few parts like the PSU.
