Good system for the price

 

Since this is highly upgradeable you should be able to keep up with new gaming requirements for a long time.

Had a mmorpg game going and running the cpu pretty well on max graphics. Could easily alt+tab out without any lag and multitask. Very pleased with the system so far, didn't have any issues with it

None so far

Good buy for the price.

 

From reading many reviews on this site, I leaned to open up and inspect the assembly befor seting it up. Low and behold, the SATA cable was not hooked up the the DVD-ROM. No biggie, just had to plug it in and was good to go (it is a possibility that it...

CPU better than listed! (See other thoughts) ; Excellent performance for the price ; Room for future upgrades

Not fully connected upon arrival ; Mouse feels cheap (but it does work)

Love it

 

If your thinking about buying for gaming get it, it runs modern games quite well, and is highly upgradable.

Plays WoW and SC2 really good, have them both on either high or ultra and get decent FPS. Keyboard and mouse are decent. Just buy, plug it in and go, no bloat wear runs really fast, I was muiltitasking alot with it and showed no signs of slowing down....

great system for the price.

Shipped fast arrived in perfect condition well packed ; Runs smooth and quite. Stay's cool and lots of upgrade potential ; For you wow players I have it running on high to ultra settings at about 30-60 fps depending on what is happening

When in sleep mode front light blinks like mad can drive you nuts at time's and have yet to find a way to shut off short of unhooking it completely

Ive only had this computer for a short time but so far its great. It plays WOW quite well and I haveny had to change my settings once I play WOW on high graphics all the time with no problems. Only problem I have had is everytime I move the cast it...

Works great!

 

This is actually my first time buying my own computer and I am greatly satisfied with how this purchase turned out.

Worked right out of the box. Everything was already connected and installed ; Like someone else said, it runs extremely quiet ; Excellent capacity for upgrades ; Comes with decent parts to start with. I just played Company of Heroes and Crysis on max...

I need more games to play on this thing

Very Satisfied

 

So far, this machine has been excellent, especially for the price. It worked straight out of the box (I didn't have to open it up and fix connections as some other users apparently did) and performs nicely. Granted, I'm not using it for very...

Runs WoW (4.0.1) and Starcraft 2 very smoothly, both look great. Extremely quiet, case has excellent ventilation with space for upgrades

Front mic and headphone jacks, oddly enough, are not standard size (regular headphones wouldn't fit). The back jacks work fine with normal phones, though

Consumer review by:

Excellent Budget Machine

 

Purchased as a replacement machine, after moving countries, and am very happy with the purchase of base machine

Excellent upgradability (fans, processors, memory, drives) ; Competent existing components (Star Trek Online, City of Heroes, Portal, Team Fortress 2 all running at high graphics with reasonable (but not high) FPS)

DVD drive arrived with cables disconnected as others reported. Was an easy fix, but could flummox novices

Great computer

 

I didn't want to go through the hassle of building my own computer so I took a shot with ibuypower. I had heard mixed reviews in the past, but I'm very happy with this computer. Would recommend to anyone that wants to do some gaming without building...

Quality parts ; Good price. For what you're getting, you won't find a better deal on a "prebuilt" computer ; Nice motherboard. Can handle a 6 core processor and up to 16 GB of RAM. With upgrades, you won't need a new computer for many years ; Powerful...

In order to connect to some websites I had to manually change the MTU on the NIC. Though it's not their fault since I also had to change the MTU on my wireless NIC ; Expensive shipping.(Like some sellers on auctions sites, it looks like this is where...

Awesome

 

If you're looking to get into PC gaming but you're on tight budget, look no further. A lot of people will tell you to invest in a quad-core, but it's simply not needed at this point. In the future this PC will be your best friend when it comes to...

Price ; Overall great performance ; EXTREMELY quiet ; Fast shipping ; Bought this computer as a starter for PC gaming and so far it's done everything I've asked of it. Runs SC2 on high settings w/o issue

As of now, none. Will update with any issues if they arise
