Cyberpower's cheap machine belongs to the middle class of gaming PC's because the guys from California have made their computer accessible to the greater number of players, but we can not call it a real gaming PC.

These components are more than enough for you to play FM18, but for it to be faster, stronger and better overall, the developers should have added a stronger graphics card and maybe an SSD. All in all, if a true gaming computer is too expensive for you, this is a pretty good alternative and the average FM player will be more than happy with it. Price $699/£525.
