Macbook Pro Upgrading to Gaming PC

Call me a noob or whatever you want, but I really just need someone that knows what they're talking about. Im currently on a Macbook Pro and have been using it as a work setup, but now i just need a machine that is a beast at running games. Im on about a $850 budget and I don't really want to buy all the parts separate because I'm not sure if everything will be compatible. So I want to find a package deal that will include everything except monitor/mouse/keyboard.
Is what I'm looking for something like this? Will it include everything I need? If you have anything else in mind please let me know: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/CyberPower_Z97_i7_Configurator

  1. Best answer
    CyberPower is a good one for configuring your own pre-built PC. For $850, this is about as good as you can get otherwise...

    It just so happens to also be CyberPower ;)
  2. twice as fast at gaming and definitely compatible.
