I wish I had waited to buy



Like everyone else, it will not boot. I wish there had been some negative reviews before I purchased it because I would not have bought the puppy if I had known there were issues

iBUYPOWER Gamer Power 900X Core 2 Quad Q6600(2.40GHz) 4GB DDR2 320GB NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit


best bang for your buck IMO for gaming system

for newbs: plug your monitor into the video card (horizontal slot, lower one) not the motherboard. secondly, does not have a recovery manager like HP/no restore to original factory state, so I'm thinking you would have to reinstall windows and install...

Another one bites the dust


Quad at a great price

Dead out of the box. Go ahead and add me to the growing list of DOA machines. Not sure what's up with these ibuypower machines but read the reviews & you'll see they have a problem right now

Another bad one!


Newegg graciously offered choice of refund or replacement. Maybe I'm a sucker, but I chose replacement. I'm not a gamer. I bought this unit in the first place because of the great price per components and specs and I just wanted a powerful but basic...

none yet

DOA...bad power supply. I can't prove it, but I think I got someone else's return and it was just put back in inventory and sent back out by the manufacturer. The shipping box within the box that held the pc had clearly been re-taped, there was a...

50% DOA appreently


Did they pull the Quality Control from initial xbox 360 release here or what. I ordered a replacement cuase as stated, its great for the price, but i get get bricks a lot cheaper then $500 if it comes to that.

When i first turned it on it booted fast... never got the chance to really test it

Also dead, after two reboots the power supply gave out and it became a brick

Look at hard drive before sending it back


If it doesn't work out of the box and the MSI screen flashes and u get "please select boot device. " Remove side panel and make sure the power cable is attached, look to the left of the red sata cable coming from the motherboard. just find the cable...

Q6600, decent motherboard(MSI), decent cooling, great deal for what u get

didn't work when i first turned it on. Looked it over and noticed the power cable for the hard drive was unplugged

not worth it



it had problems out of the box, i kept crashing a blue screen every few mins making it impossible to do anything. I had to replace the two 2gbs sticks (which were junky) in to 2 1gb sticks supertalents before it started working and installed a 32bit os...

Wont turn on


After reading some of the bad reviews this product received on this web-site I was hesitant to purchase it. I can honestly say that it works great with the 790i MB; just make sure that you change the voltage from the default 1.5V to 1.7V.

It looks kinda nice

Same problem as previous reviewer, wont turn on at all. Called tech support and got a "No one is available at this time" message. Gonna try again tomorrow I guess

Great Value! Fast Machine


This machine was a tremendous value. I tried to peice one together off newegg using really cheap parts and could not come close to the cost of this system. The digital audio output is on the mobo but not brought out. I need to rectify that issue. The...

You can't build one for what this unit costs ; Really fast, Lots of ram, fast Hard Drive ; PCI Express x16 Video ; Barebones SW Install, no bloatware, only MS office trialware ; User access control was already turned off :) ; Big, Case plenty of room...

Fan's are noisy ; Does not have GIG-E as advertised only 10/100 ; Does not have a digital audio output. (motherboard has one but its not brought out externally) ; No Free PCIE Slots. Only PCI

Great for the money


Mother board will need to be upgraded to upgrade anything else.

No Bloat Ware! Worked right out of the box. Plays WoW with no problems. Seems to run very low temp (does not heat the room much). Will do some picture editing
