That site link is too hard to understand. I would say that Cyber Power doesn't have the greatest reputation.

I noticed some notations about the power supply and upgrades. The wattage mentioned is too low for a gaming rig.

You will probably have to assemble the hardware anyway so why don't you just select and buy components.

First thing you need to determine is a total budget. Will the budget include the operating system and things like a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.

There are many helpers here that can assist you after you have a budget.

Go to newegg.com and look around.

Hey there.

I've actually bought a desktop from newegg.com before and I bought my own graphics card and power supply but for lots of reasons the card is still not working. I've made a separate thread in another section.

So yah I've decided to buy a new one since this one is not gonna work somehow. :/

Yes, budget is important.
In the mean time look at:

It is a bit more than your selection, but a more solid gaming rig. Once you give us an idea how much you are willing to spend, you will get many options and advice.
Or build one here:

Hey fingers it's you again!

^^

Sorry for the late response but my budget is around 700$.

700$ doesn't have to include a monitor but it would be nice I can get one with just 700$.

But my family doesn't really want me to physically build one myself.

So they would rather just have an official website build it for me and mail me the built computer.

I've been advised against buying from cyberpowerpc.

is alienware.com a good choice?

I am not really good at building computer.

Can you guys show me an example from alienware.com?

Like build one on alienware.com and link me the website.

I really have not a clue.

My friend helped me build this one, if you think this one is doable then I'll just buy it.

I just want a computer that's able to run most games and record while playing without any sort of lag.

Alienware is connected with Dell. If you go to the Dell site and go under "For the Home" you would see Alienware as an option. If you click on it, you willgo to the site I linked you above. They have a good reputation and they are backed by Dell.
If you begin with their basic model and upgrade things like the graphics card, you can build a gaming machine that should work nicely for you and be upgradable.
