great for the price


After all the horror stories on ibuypowers forum I expected it to take a month minimum to arrive and come with some malfunction. But it took amazlingly 2 buisness days to ship (i do live in the same state though) and came perfect and up and running...

I couldn't even find a comparable price on website itself. I ordered on a Sunday and received on the Tuesday of next week. No problems ran perfect right out of the box

None so far

Great so far


Worked great right out of the box. Had none of the issues previously reported by other users. Mine came with a power cord and firewire port. Windows 7 had no issues authenticating and the cooling fans run quiet. Came with extra rails too. Seems fast...

Everything works ad advertised ; Fast shipping

thought I had a good deal but it was too good to be true!

worked good for the first 5 minutes

Everything was exactly what it said it was but after the first 5 min the screen whent black and the fan went to full power!!! Called IBuyPower and they said they can only send replacement parts and can not give a replacement. They said to call newegg....

Great Computer


Runs great! Love the over-clocking program that came with it. Can run Crysis on all the highest settings with no problems. Have owned since Christmas'09 and no complaints. Very quiet machine! Very fast! Lots of room for growth later on. Just ordered...

Works as advertised!


Turn off power saving to make a USB hub work with Windows 7. :)

This system is fast - works great out of the box! no problems what-so-ever! It even came with extra HDD rails! Very satisfied with this purchase and the 3 day shipping was right on time

Next time I'm ordering on a Tuesday instead of a Thursday. If I don't pay for special Saturday delivery I won't get it - not Newegg's fault though. :)

Firewire oh I seek firmly Fulfillment Lament on truth Of Fact in fact No Oh Firewire Lost away given A discard drawing closure Un-exposure Fire Wire

Everything I ever wanted in a new computer ; Powerful processor, enough memory, HD Gaming and Video, i7 under $1000 for now, Windows 7 is smooth, Sleek design and I already upgraded to BluRay

NO FREAKING FIREWIRE?! REALLY ; Well that makes my external drive hard to connect. Guess I have to wait a little more time before dumping everything from my old baby to my new love until I go buy a stupid adapter ; I mean seriously... no freaking...

bad parts!


After doing research on IBUYPOWER one has to wonder why such a reputable company like newegg would carry such a shady brand name. I would love to see newegg come out with its own line of pc, I would proudly have a tower with the newegg logo sit under...

See my other review... newegg issued an rma. and this computer is currently on a ups truck back to newegg

Cpu fan sounds like it might give out at any second ; power supply was making some very funky sounds, sort of like a squeal and an electronic scraping. Came with a missing case screw! supposed to be four case screws, bottom left screw seems to be MIA, wth

Great bang for the buck!


Perhaps you may play more 'modern' games, but this beast will run Nascar Racing 2003 maxxed out on audio and graphics at 140 FPS (maximum, 80 FPS minimum). That means a lot considering how hard it is to get good FPS from that game.

I bought mine (the 938i) as an "open box", and was very surprised to find it was almos perfect! Mine has all the same features as far as RAM, hard drive, and graphics as the 942 you're looking at and it does NOT disappoint. It started right up, it runs...

A front cover was missing, but hey - it was "open box". That cover doesn't affect how it runs

Great Desktop


This is labelled a gaming computer but it makes a great business computer with plenty of speed and capacity for expansion. There are plenty of USB ports. The audio ports in the front can be set so when they are in use the rear ports are disabled. At...

Compared to my 4 year old P4 computer this thing is super fast. The preinstalled Windows 7 lives up to my expectations. I love every aspect of this new computer. I bought a gaming computer primaily so I could run the Great Planes Real Flight flight...

The case is much larger than my old PC, but it is tucked away under my desk so it's not that big a deal. The housing is really close to the HDMI port which forced me to remove some of the material around the plug so it would fit. It has room for lots...

Love it.


All in all I am very happy with this computer. I could have built a comparable computer for a comparable price. I am willing to deal with some bad customer service in exchange for being lazy. :)

Great speed, easy to modify with lots of room for expansion. Space for 120mm fan mounts EVERYWHERE

I also had my machine arrive with out any extra HDD mounting hardware and was also forced to contact NZXT. I got a quick response from NZXT and they sent a complete set of hardware in a couple days
