cant wait till i get a try


i will reserve this place for when if ever new egg decides to ship the pc i bought a week ago

for the price of the unit you get awesome spec ; seems like it will be awesome for gaming especially on a 27 inch monitor ; 8 gigs is a nice start

really only worried about over heating since it has a nvidea geforce gtx 480 which is well known to be a monster heat maker was even given lower % rating in magazine because of the noise and heat issues

24 hour burn in running graphic demos and all smooth sailing. So far so good! With my busy schedule i didnt have time to actually play any graphic intensive games but the demos sure look pretty and run well.

Packed in box very secure ; Cd's , Manuals included ; Fired right up and jumped into configuration setup which was a breeze ; Not as loud or hot running as i expected it to be from other reviews i have read

Figures.. the day it ships and i think im getting the latest and greatest Nvidia announces GTX 580 ; No issues at all so far

This sucker is NOT big. It is the same size as a workstation tower. This sucker is LOUD, but I like it that way.

Pretty fast. It keeps wow at 60fps. EVE, using high-end textures is very pretty

6 SATA-II ports. One is used for DVD drive, one is used for HD, and one is used for the Case (???). It is hooked into the case, I don't know why ; This leaves 3 SATA's left, but NO power lines for them ... Don't know how I am supposed to use them if...

Very Nice


You will be satisified with this computer. It runs everything very smooth. I have some of the latest and demanding video games and this machine handles it all. Plus it looks cool with the lights off

The lights flicker when I turn it on. 800 Watts needed

a good buy


This is my first computer from "iBuyPower" and the name is quite apropos. No serious hiccups so far. The processor handles all programs well so far and the nVidia card makes everything look smooth. The delivery was on time (I chose the 3-day groud)...

This computer is spec-ed out quite nicely for the price. All hardware is working smoothly and there appears to be room for expansion/upgrades ; I was impressed that iBuyPower included all the installation and backup CDs for the hardware. Thank you

A few minor things to consider - nothing I would think that should turn someone off from buying this rig. First, this case is big; make certain you have room for it! Second, the cooling system is somewhat loud. However, I suppose that's to be expected...

Blue screen


I hope it is not to much of a chore replacing this computer.

This computer was a great deal and is very powerful

The computer I received has stability issues and often restarts to a blue screen, possibly a hardware issue with the motherboard ; The fan is quite loud

Great PC


For someone that does not know how to build a computer, or just does not have the time, this computer is a great pre-build. Great bang for your buck. Over all, i recommend the pc.

TL;DR ; Top end computer ; Cd's included ; Everything u could want(besides a solid state) ; Good price for whats included ; Top end specs ; Easy as can be to start playing games. The only thing i had to do after i took it out of the box is just...

Power button is behind the opening panel thing on the front, so u gotta open that up every time u want to start up your PC (one of the pictures shows what i am talking about). I hate the red flames on the case personally, looks like a 12 year old's PC....
