Awesome powerful Desktop

 

NewEgg is Awesome!!!

Very nice Desktop and powerful. Using already for 4 months and never had any problems. Case is not that bad, fan is pretty quiet and computer stays cold all the time. Love the Graphic Cards, Games runs smoothly on High Resolution. 8gb Ram is plenty...

Only 2 USB in the front. ( I wish 2 more at least). Graphic card is not made by Nvidia as advertised, but its still pretty nice card. DVD writer is kind of loud and cheap, but I don't really use it a lot. Never got any extra Hard Drive rails as...

beautiful

 

well worth it if you are looking to find a quick computer for your gaming needs

very fast start up + load times, stable, no errors as of yet ; great with recent fps titles + very silent

the top of the case has vent holes so if there were to be any accidental spill... game over

Solid system

 

Can't speak for the mouse or keyboard as I am not using them. Have my own personal preferences there.

System runs great for my games (CoD: Black Ops, World of Warcraft), watching cable television over my Hauppauge card, streaming on justin.tv, browsing the internet and anything else I throw at it. First system that I didn't build myself in about 10...

iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 959i Intel Core i5 760(2.80GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

Works perfect. Nothing extra, perfect gaming computer ; My wife likes the power supply on the bottom since she rests her foot on the top

Power supply on the bottom could be a problem if it was placed on thick carpet

Best prefab I've ever purchased

 

Dual boot into ubuntu64 bit was tricky. Ubuntu wouldn't recognize the 460, so I had to download drivers manually via synaptic. I've become a fan of buying warranties after having so many prefabs kill themselves (poor ventilation, cheap parts, looking...

I have so many good things to say about this computer, but the highlights are that it has a nice power profile, it's nearly silent*, it's very easy to work in the case, it's ventilated very well, and both sides open. Corei5 is a great cpu, and the 460...

Bios error, VIA Screen says Scanning for devices No Any Device Found. Doesn't seem to effect anything, other than boot time. I've made no attempt at debugging it ; Hard drive is LOUD and SLOW. You may want to do yourself a favor, and just buy a nice...

After owning it for some some

 

Early reviews from myself (and others) seemed positive, however I won't ever order from iBuyPower again.. my last computer lasted me almost 4 years with some self upgrades.. this one is barely lasting me two months.

Still functions sometimes, quick to boot. Fast when its operational

I can't run any video or play video games for more than a few mins.. the whole computer just will turn itself off ; non-functional keyboard from the manufacturer ; Processor seems severely bottle-necked at times. The Windows performance thing in...

DOA

 

The specs on this computer were great for the price, but if anything goes wrong with it, be prepared to dish out alot of money to fix it. Thank you Newegg for helping me.

One pro was newegg's customer support. The computer came with a faulty video card and I contacted IBP directly about what options I had. I was left feeling very frustrated. I then contacted Newegg, and they allowed me to return the machine and even...

This machine sounded great. I read the reviews and was aware of the pro's and con's so I ordered it. When it arrived with a defective video card, IBP sent me a new one, after many "hiccups" along the way. After taking over 3 weeks for my video card to...

Fast PC but the HD was broken inside from shipping

 

I think IBuyPower should re-think their package design. The way they ship PC now doesn't make since and would cause more problems down the road as people purchase their products. Other then that it's a great PC for the purchase price.

The PC is fast!!! I'm able to play all of my Steam games with no issues or lag. The PC case is design well for air flow, no heat issues. For the price you get a nice gaming PC

IBuyPower shipping boxes aren't design very well. When UPS drop off the IBuyPower box it was damage, opening the box I found the keyboard and mouse outside of the PC case box leaving the keyboard and mouse free to move around inside the main box. This...

Didn't Work

 

The only pro I have is Newegg's customer service. All I had to do was tell the person that it wasn't working correctly and he immediately game me a return shipping label to RMA the computer. The rep was friendly and helpful. Thank you Newegg

Anytime I tried to play a game the power supply would make a high pitched whining sound and the computer would shut itself off to prevent damage to the components. I'm assuming I was given a bad PSU, but I'm no expert. I understand mistakes happen, and...

Great machine

 

You get more than what you pay for. The motherboard and CPU are great. The case is good, not as ugly as some say. Keyboard, junk!

FAST, great price, lots of ram, very quiet. Great video card. Worked right out of the box. (except for the keyboard). My kids run it hard with games all day long and it has never crashed or had any hessitation issues at all. No heat issues ; I think I...

Keyboard has issues, several keys don't work, its not tilt adjustable. You will probably want to buy a better keyboard. Hard drive is mid pack for performance. It's quiet but slow. Give the machine a 5.9 out of 7.9 Windows performance rating. If not...
