Most ‘core’ gamers want crazed power and performance. The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme GXi11160CPG fills that role perfectly. But practicability of size and price may be a concern for most people, and this cost for a gaming tower isn’t for everyone.

Fortunately, for enthusiasts with quieter pockets, CyberPowerPC’s Gamer Xtreme GXiVR8060A6 promises equally good playability out-of-the-box in at a very reasonable price. Don’t let the amount you’re paying for the GXiVR8060A6 fool you – this gaming desktop is packed with power and has enough real-estate for future upgraded of up to Nvidia’s newest graphics, plenty of storage and memory, something that gives it an edge.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking at a new gaming PC for VR, or to play just about any modern title out there, but your budget peaks at below one grand, the Gamer Xtreme’s capabilities will make you the envy of most budding gamers.

CYBERPOWERPC GAMER XTREME GXIVR8060A6

CYBERPOWERPC GAMER XTREME GXIVR8060A6 – DESIGN

Available in the same case as its predecessor the – Gamer GXiVR8060A5, this version too looks like a playful consumer desktop tower with a tinted tempered glass side window and a trio of LED circles on the front panel. It comes out as an attractive focal piece on any desk.

A simple polygonal-shaped steel box with a good taste of LEDs. That’s ho best you can describe the casing used here. The desktop measures 18.5 x 17.9 x 7.9 inches, making it a bit compact than the iBUYPOWER Elite Slate2 084i, but fairly bigger than the HP Omen 880-190. An all metal construction adds to the PC’s premium styles and gives it extra durability, the unit is still not very portable at 27.8 pounds. Given that you won’t be totting your gaming rig around, that’s not a deal-breaker.

Hopefully, CyberPowerPC’s tame design will make this PC feel as modern today as it will ten years down the road. You’ll appreciate the fact that apart from the LEDs and transparent side panel, this machine is free of obtrusive vents, aggressive grills, and Sci-Fi angles. The materials used here and the design will keep the GXIVR8060A6 from looking dated over time, which is a nice thing, considering the unit’s price and upgradeability.

Another highlight here is the near tool-less access to the internals, which can be done via a side glass panel. While the feature is similar to most gaming PCs nowadays, CyberPowerPC went a step further to ensure that the glass is sturdy and easy to remove and only held in place by for screws. Doing so ensures that the glass door is only removable when you seriously need to access the internals.

CYBERPOWERPC GAMER XTREME GXIVR8060A6 – PORTS

While having front-facing ports is always great, not all of those ports can be accessible as you think depending on their position. In its standard layout, the Gamer Xtreme’s two front facing USB 3.0 ports, audio jacks and power button are located on the upper panel, towards the front. This placement is very ideal for a tower that sits on a desktop, and can sometimes go on the floor – whichever you choose, the ports are easier to reach.

Around the rear of the unit, there are more ports including four USB 3.1 Type-A ports, audio ports, an Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports (for connecting the bundled keyboard and mouse). There’s also a HDMI and DisplayPort on the graphics card for connecting to external displays. For a VR-Ready system with HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift, having more ports is a bonus. Wireless connectivity comes via an 802.11AC Wi-Fi adapter.

CYBERPOWERPC GAMER XTREME GXIVR8060A6 – PERFORMANCE

Depending on your budget, the Gamer Xtreme line has different configurations with as much power as you can afford. The machines can be outfitted with silicon from either AMD or Intel, and our unit comes with the latest 9th-gen Intel Core i5-9400F processor on an Intel B360 chipset. Creatives with a need for speed or gamers can upgrade to either AMD’s 16-core Ryzen Threadripper or Intel’s beastly 18-core Core i9-9980XE silicon for class-leading gaming and media performance.

For now, our review unit stacks up well against similar Core i5 and AMD Ryzen 7 equipped systems. Thanks to the presence of 6 cores throttling at 2.9GHz, processor performance does not seem to be an issue despite its minimal upgrade over last year’s Core i5-8400 chips. Compared to last’s year chip, gamers will realize that this one runs a bit quiet.

To the performance, it adds 8GB of RAM, a 120 GB solid state drive and an additional 1TB hard drive storage. For quiet operation, it is fitted with a closed-loop liquid cooler that you can see as a nifty clear cover over the CPU heat sink.

CYBERPOWERPC GAMER XTREME GXIVR8060A6 – GAMING

With support for Virtual Reality (VR) headsets including HTC Vive and Oculus, the machine’s Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (3GB) GPU clearly targets entry-level gamers who demand the best performance. As expected, performance is solid across most resolutions maxed at 1080p, while its siblings like the CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Supreme SLC10120CPG can handle modern titles in 4K at the highest level of details.

If 1080p is your poison, this Gamer Xtreme will let you play a good deal of modern titles at excellent frame rates. It puts a great show on modern games played at 1920-by-1080 (1080p), including: Assassin’s Creed Unity (55.2 fps), Far Cry Primal (63.1fps), Hitman (57.7fps) and The Witcher 3 (64.7). In all instances, the GTX 1060 outperforms AMD’s RX 470, which isn’t surprising though.

VR READY GAMING PC

If you hadn’t already guessed from the extra ports on the front and back, the Gamer GXiVR8060A5 is a capable virtual reality (VR) machine. The latest generation i5 and the GTX 1060 are around the basic requirements for both Vive and Oculus. For that, it’s a perfect exit from gaming consoles and, you won’t be spending too much for that matter. Therefore, if you’ve always fancied a reasonably priced desktop that packs enough power to drive a VR headset, you can easily start here.

OUR TAKE

The CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8060A6 is an affordable, yet powerful pre-built PC that comes with plenty of options for most gamers and creatives. Interestingly, for gamers who may not want to invest all their savings into a rig from day one, the Gamer’s upgradeable design means you can add as much power as you need to get the desired performance you want down the road.

Is there a better alternative?

This Gamer has a modest price, and most alternatives around are either pricey or offer the same processor or graphics card. As configured, our  Out of stock at Amazon  review unit features an Intel Core i5-9400F processor, 8GB RAM, GTX 1060 GPU, and 128GB SSD + 1TB hard drive storage.

The closest upgrade around is the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme GXiVR8480A, with the same spec sheet, save for a Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU. If your pockets can stretch a bit, the iBUYPOWER Trace 9220 is yet another pre-built PC with a 9th-gen intel Core i7-9700K processor and the latest GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card.

Should you buy it?

Yes. If you’re on a budget, CyberPowerPC offer the best right now, with plenty of configuration options along the way, so buying the Gamer feels like build your own custom gaming machine without having to invest time and labor. Also, the line has plenty of choice to choose from depending on your budget.
