Phenomenal value!

 

After doing a bit of searching around, I realized this product was quite a deal. Most similar models were far more expensive and a good deal less powerful. After a quick inspection of the package upon receiving it, I found the power supply had been...

Upgraded Components, Price, Ease of Use

Slightly lower quality front casing...beyond that, not much

Dissappointing

 

At this point not sure I am going to attempt to order a differant model or just have one built for me. I am going to have to think on it a bit. Not to mention that I still have to wait for the refund to my credit card before I buy another one.

Unknown since it only lasted a couple of hours

Dvd drive did not work . After checking to make sure nothing had come loose in shipping still no joy. Called newegg and they issued me a rma to ship it back right away however the origanal person indicated they would just fix or replace the drive and...

Fan-f'ing-tastic

 

I opened the computer case to install my old HDD, and I noticed one of the memory sticks wasnt all the way seated. After seeing that I looked the rest over and didnt find any other defects. This computer works fantastic and I recommend it to all my...

Too many pro's to name. I keep my PC performance gauges open in vista, and I have yet to get any of it over 33%. Vista rates everything at 5.9/5. Runs every game at max settings with 60 FPS, very rarely do I even hear the fan for the GPU turn on. Maybe...

None besides very minor issues listed below

Will Never Buy From Company Again

 

Will never buy from iBUYPOWER again and willtell everyone i know not to buy from them.

The only pro is that Newegg got it to me in quick time. Computer has yet to work. iBUYPOWER has decent customer service

Computer did not work when i recieved it contacted company sent it back to them came back in the same condition. Got them to send me replacement motherboard and will cost $99 at local shop to fix

ON SECOND THOUGHT

 

DON'T BUY THIS COMPUTER IF YOU PLAN UPGRADING IT. This is a GREAT working computer at a good price if you couldnt be bothered on building a computer. Building a computer is way easier than you may think it is. - I bought this computer 3 months ago...

Great working computer that runs Vista 64 very smoothly ; Compatible with the new AMD AM3 processors

You will need a new Motherboard if you want to upgrade to DDR3 memory or to run crossfire at (16x /16x) ; You will need a new PSU if you want to upgrade to a graphics card that requires an 8 pin or multiple pci-e cords ; In my opinion the case is very...

Great buy

 

I've heard some horror stories about ibuypower and maybe I just got lucky, but this was a very, very good purchase experience for me.

Ordered late Friday night, arrived Tuesday afternoon in perfect condition. When I got the machine it started right up and I got to work personalizing it, I was installing 3 programs, downloading a windows update, running a virus scan and browsing the...

The LED's in the side fan can't be turned off without stopping the fan. Very minor annoyance, totally worth it

NICE

 

Best deal i've found online. Shipped in a week in working condition and runs smooth. Lost of slot left for expansions and such.

Shipped with a better mobo then listed. Got a nicer Gigabyte over the MSI. Also came with a 680 watt power supply

Case is somewhat shady. Especially the flimsy front door

Amazing...

 

GET IT!

Arrived on time in near-perfect condition. Like another review said a few of the black panels covering the rom drives were loose but easily fixed. Works like a dream for WoW and any other game i'v thrown at it with max settings. I went out on a limb...

The display driver that came installed for the Radeon 4800 Graphics card was causing some problems at first. The computer crashed twice within the first hour of operation. An updated driver from the website cured the problems though. No problems since

Awesome rig!

 

I got home, was on my porch, took it out, plugged it in works amazing! so fast! i play most steam games, my old computer would lag with all settings down and this thing... ughh so amazing all settings up and getting about 60 fps. nothing wrong with...

Vista, bleh. Something else is a couple of the back panels had must of fellin off when shipped, but easily put back on, also the front panel (door) thing is not so great as i thought it would be, but still a great computer

amazing bang for your buck

 

My roommate bought another prebuilt computer off newegg the same day I did, but he spent ~ $200 more. His was DOA. I need not say how angry he was when I was playing gleefully on my cheaper computer that runs like a dream while he was on the phone with...

I've mainly been running Warhammer Online with this beast and it handles it like pie while streaming music. All video settings max, max resolution. VERY satisfied with what I got for my money ; Also

Vista
