Very Satisfied

 

Very fast delivery (arrived a day early) ; Worked straight out of the box ; Unit runs cool (left it on overnight and case wasn't warm ; An amazing price at $750 for a core i7

maybe an extra fan as it only has one exhaust fan and no intake fan. It does have a fan for the graphics card and a cpu fan ; One of the card covers were slightly bent and made a rattling noise when it ran, however a piece of folded up paper scrap...

Very Happy

 

All in all I am incredibly happy w/ this purchase. This is the 2nd comp I've bought from Newegg along w/ other items and they are a great company with fabulous customer service. I would highly recommend this comp and this company to anyone.

Love this comp! Love Newegg! Order on Wed and received it on Friday ; It booted up right out of the box, just needed to put on virus and firewall protection (obviously) and I was good to go! Loaded up WoW (took 45 minutes to load WotLK and that...

Still trying to get used to Windows 7. It's preset settings were obviously done with the visually impaired in mind as everything is set to "HUGE" so that took some tweaking to personalize. Also Windows 7 is preset to check and download updates at 3am...

Good power with some trade offs

 

Just because I listed more cons than pros, this is still a decent computer, it has a good sound card in the back which works so if you use speakers only, the first con is void. And most people will run not have the third con since not many uses more...

The specs for the price is great ; Windows 7 is easy to use

Front Headphone jack is iffy, will sometimes not recognize the headset even if it was using it already perfectly fine ; cd/dvd burner conks out to often, it opens, but won't burn any media after three months ; if you have two monitors connected to the...

Not so good

 

RMA through newegg worked perfectly. Too bad I had to use it....twice.

It's a great price

It wouldn't start up. Problems with the power. Video card or power supply. IBUYPOWER has good tech support. I shouldn't need tech support. Ordered something different. That one broke too. Really disappointed. Would have made a great computer

Consumer review by:

Fantastic rig

 

Was pleasantly pleased by this rig. They did a great job with the wiring and everything ran as it should. Very fast - windows boots in 7-10 seconds, and can run games on highest settings on all the games I've tried (SC2 for example). I am a bit wary of...

Fast (boot, browsing, application install and run) ; Great graphics (Starcraft 2 on Ultra) ; Quiet ; Packaged well ; Light

Cheap components (fans, memory and GPU brand)

iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 947i Intel Core i7 860(2.80GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

Even though I have only had the computer for a day I am completely in love with it. It is super fast and overall and amazing buy. I almost couldn't be happier, defiantly a five

A few things in the installation of Windows was not clear and I did have to call Tech Support. But it was fine as they were extremely friendly

Consumer review by:

Great buy

 

As an aside, when the computer arrived some of the wires inside were shaken loose during delivery, but it was very simple putting them back where they belong. That along with only 1 fan makes me give it 4/5, but it is still a very, very solid buy.

You really won't get a better price for what comes included here. Great video card, great processor, decent RAM for a low price

Only thing with which I can really gripe is that it only comes with 1 fan; be ready to add another

Consumer review by:

Pleased

 

great performance for the buck, if this is your price range then go for it. You shouldn't be let down.

Fast runs great as I had hoped. Running WoW 50-60 FPS with all settings maxed except shadows of course in Dal on high pop server. Looks great on my hdtv

sound randomly drops out ; payed 3 day guaranteed waited a week to get it ; a little louder than i had expected

Consumer review by:

Best Case Ever

 

It's raw power kept it above 3 eggs because it was just impressive the machines i use at school cant even hope to keep up with this speedy bugger.

This thing is lightning fast out of the box, wonderful for visual effects editing and 3d animation both of which i dabble in. Render times are insane! For games It plays the latest titles at full settings ranging from 60 to 50 fps

Cheap parts, the usb ports in front for some reason will not recognize and device i plug into them but the rear ports work just fine it is most frustrating. Another thing is after plugging in a second monitor the displays black out for a second or two...

Newegg still rocks?
