Good PC

 

I'd recommend this computer to anyone who is a gaming enthusiast. If you're not a gamer, buy this and try some out or simply watch some movies online or dvd's you have.

Very fast shipping, Nice price, Great for gaming. Ive had this comp for about a week now and installed Need for speed world, Divinity 2, GTA san andreas, GTA IV, Mafia II, Metro 2033, World in Conflict, Napoleon total war, 007 bloodstone, Risen,...

I did read that many people had problems with the fan being loud and I must say its not -that- noticeable if you're playing a game/music with your sound on or headphones on.. you can block it out ; Other than that all I could care to mention is the...

AMAZING

 

Spec list: HD: Seagate(?) Barracuda 500 GB (Actually got a TB instead!) Video Card: PowerColor Radeon 5770 CPU: AMD Phenom II 965 (3.4 GHz) Black edition Ram: I think G.skill, but im to lazy to check, 1333 Mhz Case: NZXT Gamma Red Motherboard: Asus 770...

This thing is amazing! Very fast and responsive system, and I now love windows 7 more then I loved XP and Linux! This thing is an amazing system, can handle most of my games on ultra high settings and give me still a pretty good frame rate! Not only...

There are only a few cons ; The motherboard chipset is kind of old and could use another PCI-E slot for CrossFireX Tech. For like twenty bucks more, you could of gotten a 790X chipset and you could use crossfire ; Ram is a little low, would have been...

iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 555D3 Phenom II X4 965(3.4GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB ATI Radeon HD 5770 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

The only manual it came with was for the motherboard. Wish it came with a manual for the computer as a whole.

The pretty blue light and fast shipping

Well, when I got this computer, I hooked it up and plugged my monitor from my last computer in to it. Powered the sucker on and the lights and fans came on, but there was no display on the monitor. I have little knowledge of computers and I bought this...

Pretty solid machine

 

overall a good machine for someone who is not good with computers. i know very basic stuff, but my troubleshooting is minimal. i got this machine cause it seemed fairly cheap for what you get, but still able to run games, which is my main intent. also,...

fast shipping, fast machine. I can run all of my games on the highest graphic settings. windows 7 is pretty (had xp on my old machine). everything came assembled in the case. some reviews said wires were unplugged. but i didnt have this issues

As others have mentioned, the fan is LOUD. but my cpu temp hasnt gone above 55 so at least its doing its job. Plus i wear headphones, so it doesnt really bother me when im gaming. I had issues when I first got it, it kept freezing up on me when doing...

the CDs that came with it, the HIS 3D graphics card CD should i install that because i have trying to play wow but its moving really slow... and that worries me.

Runs really well, starts up fine. looks really good. i like the LED and the fan

the fan does sound really i've read reviews about it but they havent changed the fan so i thought i wouldnt have the same problem but its still a good computer

first new cpu in 6+ years

 

Ive been researching building my own cpu for the past 6 months..decided to go with a prebuilt gaming rig for convenience and cost and so far I couldn't be happier. This thing is fast. Of course I had an old Pentium 4 3ghz before with a radeon x1600 so...

Awesome...got this with a 23.6" ASUS lcd and everything looks Spectacular. All my games I can run at max settings at 60 fps. Dragons Age, WoW, Fallout 3, Mafia II and I'm sure when I install the rest they will look awesome. Also like other reviews this...

Keyboard had non working keys. Fortunately I didn't need my old wireless keyboard for my old cpu. Pretty loud but only when the fans kick it up running high end games at max. Blue led light on a red cpu. .bleh

Phenomenal

 

Guys, the noise, it's not even that bad. If you have a headset and minimul volume you won't hear a thing. It's not a jet engine, it's just sounds like a fan lol.

Okay, it came in with excellent care. Excellent shipping speed. I plug it in, boot it up(simple and easy) and I start downloading Sc2 and WoW. So sc2 finishes first. Ultra settings, NO LAG AT ALL with lots of guys, while running zune music and...

None yet, but I doubt there will be any

Excelent System

 

Fast, stable, no bloatware to speak of, pluged it in and zoom, off I went. Great for gaming, running them all at max settings with no issues. can't ask for better

tiny bit loud as mentioned by others, though certainly not enough to make this a bad buy at all

Consumer review by:

Very good deal

 

As some other have mentioned, you'll have problems if you're not familiar with the insides of a PC. My chasis fan was not plugged in and neither was the video card. It didn't appear to from banging during shipping either because there was no indication...

Great deal for the price, best deal I've found. It's very fast and I haven't had any problems after initial installation. I also received the 1T drive instead of 500GB drive

Not sure if there's a problem with the video card, but the Radeon HD 5770 benchmarks about 300 points below average on Passmark, even after I oc'ed it as far as it could run stable. It's still fast enough to handle my games though

Good, could be better

 

All in all, the system would be fantastic if these issues were resolved- -Red lights instead of blue -They replaced the jet engine with a CPU fan -The (#&%ing audio out would just work Other than those flaws, of which the latter two can be quite...

This computer performs phenomenally under stress, Crysis at maximum settings, etc. This is the only reason I rate this computer a 4, however, as the pros end here

Defective, possibly? Something causes the sound to only come out of the right speaker, I have tried using different sets of speakers, and headphones. Same result. Only after repeatedly resetting the computer will this problem be resolved, and even then...
