Really great, and fast!

 

Keys on the keyboard is slightly different than that of a traditional keyboard (has new keys, and some keys are smaller) but I guess I'll be able to adapt to this overtime.

Boots up instantly ; No Bloatware ; Comes with a Windows 7 Disk ; Instantly recognized my ASUS monitor ; No parts loose, everything functions ; Runs SMOOTHLY on a Furmark stress test at 2560*1600 ; With 75C-78C at peak with 80-90FPS peak

Really horribly mouse, the tracking is simply horrible. You can't do anything without it flickering across your screen (even with a mouse pad). My old wireless microsoft mouse (not blutrack) never had this problem

Geat tower but Bad luck on Vid Card

 

Newegg has great custome service. Will get another tower or replacement vid card and be running in no time im sure. Check everything and be prepared just in case.

Great system for as long as it lasted. Could be better but it just didnt last long enough to do much. Fast shipping

Video card was loose when unpacked but place back in and everything started up. The REAL CON is the card fan failed and Card is toast

Almost Perfect

 

If you're looking for a relatively cheap, quick, and decent rig to game with, this is the system for you. I did extensive research on it and pretty much the vid card to the processor is above average compared to all the others out in the market (the...

Fast right out of the box and as advertised by other reviewers, this thing is super quiet! Everything loads pretty quick and start up and shut down is far and away the fastest I've experienced, PC wise (Macs will own this thing speed-wise still, I know...

The only negative is that during start up I noticed the DVD drive wasnt flashing or making any apparent noise. When the system loaded up, I tried to put in a CD, but nothing. I opened up the case wondering what was up, and found out that the power was...

Great Comp

 

No bloat ware was nice.

Highly customizable, I have a ssd and 3hdds in it currently, with 3 monitors hooked up in eye finity, and also have overclocked it to 3.8GHz without a worry in cpu temp problems. The case is great, its quiet, and its cool

None

iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 551D3 Phenom II X4 965(3.4GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB ATI Radeon HD 5770 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

Great deal. Solid build. The Video card is a HIS. Which is an amaaaaaazing card. The card in the pictures isn't the same one I got. I'm not sure if IBuyPower uses the same parts for the same models or different depending on price or something. This...

I usually do not buy pre built systems, but this has changed my attitute towards them prebuilt forever. The price is great for a college student who wants to game. It murdered everything I threw at it. RE5, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Dead Space, and it...

The only real thing that bothered me was the cable management. The zip ties were so tight on the wires it was hard to free them so I could add my old HDD. Other than that the cabling was handled well. No front fan either. These ARE NOT deal breakers....

Excellent computer

 

During shipping some of the motherboard cords jiggled loose. Easy fix once I opened the case and checked everything, but it did cause 3 minutes of anxiety when the power button didn't work!

Very powerful machine. It runs all my graphic design programs without chugging, and can handle games at better-than-average graphic settings ; The best part? No bloatware

None

Super fast!

 

This computer is the fastest computer I've ever used. It was amazing to install all my programs at the same time in a matter of minutes whereas normally I would have do one at a time and it can take a few hours to get all my programs installed...

Haven't seen a keyboard that doesn't have that tilt ability in ages and the delete key and shift keys are small. It's only a keyboard so it doesn't take anything away from the awesome computer ; Not a fan of the front door on the case - gonna wait a...

Stop looking - you've found the one.

 

with a 46" honkin' hdtv, logitech z-5500's, and a creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card, this system makes me EXTREMELY HAPPY. everyone in my comp programming class at school hates me because they know what kinda system i run. also, if cords...

I bought this computer with my fingers crossed. Coming from a mediocre 1997 Dell to this, its beyond night and day. This is easily the fastest computer - not only that i've owned, but that i have ever seen. My brother always asks me to convert south...

the ram can be in short supply for the things that i do, (trying to do more than 20 things at once). so you might want to get another 2gb or so of ram ; the nzxt apollo, IMO, is one of the worst cases. it has 2 fans, blue, but the only intake doesnt...

broke within a week of owning

 

very fast

the optical drive didnt work so i just bought an external 1 ; it wouldnt give me the login menu today, it told to put in an installation disk and restart, i did this and it gave me the same problem. after half an hour of trying this, i am giving up ; i...

Insanely fast PC, with a great price

 

I was really scared when ordering this PC. I had heard a lot of negative things about iBP, but this thing was amazing. I will definitely buy my next PC from iBP.

This computer is INSANELY fast!!! I don't even think you need to overclock this beast! Its VERY silent, even when running games at full HD. The chassi looks really cool too. I love the blue neon lights

The chassi is HUGE. I know it doesn't look big in the pictures, but it is really big ; The USB ports on the side are kind of annoying. If you plug a USB into it, it will kinda get in your way. Not worth taking off an egg though
