IBuyPower Gamer Extreme

 

Outlandish case design distinguishes this gaming system.

While you could do better for less money, the Gamer Extreme definitely pumps out the sound and offers up a good gaming experience.

To determine how the new P4 stacks up against the stiff competition AMD provided, we got in the first shipping P4 EE machine we could find: A unit from iBuyPower. Besides comparing it with an Athlon 64 FX-51–based machine, we pitted the new P4 system...

MONSTER for its price!

 

Overall I think this pc is a bang for the buck. It does almost everything for the price and has quality performence. I had this for almost a year. Video editing and gaming works perfectly fine! I recommend this to anyone who isn't a extreme gamer.

This pc is extremely fast! (Processor can be overclocked really well if power supply and cooling are modified) ; Ready out of the box ; Can run most games on Med-High ; LOTS OF ROOM for modifications ; Decent Graphics card ; SSD ; Wires are well organized

Case fans are loud! (I recommend changing those) ; No restore disk ; Only 400w ; Very few cons

Love it

 

This was my first gaming computer purchase, and I am over-all very happy with it. After shopping in the online computer market for a computer with a price that was not some sort of unfair trick or "discount", this bundle was a dream come true. I had...

Love this computer; bought it on sale back in 2012 since the over all price beat out purchasing the same components individually; keyboard and mouse were also a superb plus for $900 total. Turns on in 9 seconds (before I filled up the SSD), still turns...

Not really a gripe, but the OS (Windows 8) had to be installed and activated, which required looking for the activation code on the side of the tower, although that was probably my own slowness at work ; Something else I'm experiencing just recently (a...

Great!

 

Great specs back in the day ; The GTS 450 lasted me till about a few weeks ago! It is still putting out roughly 30fps on medium in BF4 but I thought it was time to upgrade ; 12.29.13

Low ram? If I purchased again, I would go for Intel

2 weeks and the SSD died

 

I tried contacting iBuyPower and sat in their online chat queue for 45 minutes as the first person in line before I gave up. I had heard that iBuyPower was bad about customer service but I had no idea it was THAT bad.

it was awesome fast while it was working

it died just after 2 weeks of use. It froze and when i restarted it I was informed I had a boot disk failure and I needed to insert a system disk that did not come with the PC. So I bought a copy of windows 7 and tried that because windows8 is pretty...

Great Computer

 

Overall a great computer I recommend purchasing it. I loved it and I want to get it fixed. I hope I can find a way to get a new motherboard or get mine fixed. I am not sure if the 1 year warranty on parts will cover the motherboard.

I loved everything about this computer. It could run everything I threw at it. It was also very smooth and fast. This has been my favorite computer that I have ever purchased. It met most of my expectations

The motherboard died out on me after 8 months. I have the computer sitting in a corner of the room collecting dust. I was disappointed with how long it lasted. I wish it could have lasted at least a year for the price

Impressive !

 

The shipping time was quite unbelievable. I ordered my computer on Monday night and it had arrived on Thursday. It really only took 3 business days to arrive to Canada. All the items arrived safely and I am quite happy with the services. The merchant...

The desktop itself was quite bigger than I expected, but nothing biggie

iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme NE625FX

 

Machine arrived quickly with no issues. Others mentioned the fan noise was excessive but I did not have issue with it

I could not get the top USB or audio jacks to work; I removed and inspected to find poor quality soldering. I re-soldered and cleaned some of the bad spots but still did not help. But I am able to live with the rear connectors

Dead after one year

 

Good and fast. I could run civ 5 on max and swtor

After I replaced the hard drive. Now I the video card is going out. I spent 730$ only to have to replace basically the whole system one year later. Should have built my own system. Teaches me for trying to save time
