Decent Sys for the money.

 

Q/C at IBuyPower could be better, Would not powerup at first, then I opened up the case to find that they never connected the main power cable to the MOBO. Once i connected it eveything worked fine.

Fair amount of Memory, decent HD, Fast CPU ; Fast Newegg Shipping ; Could not build a system for the price ; I'll reserve other comments after it has been up and running for a month. so far so good

I knocked off 1 egg because of the Q/C Issues

Good for starters

 

After a couple months i decided to upgrade, so i bought a better Power supply 750w and a new Graphics card, 5850. and ive been able to max every thing out ever sense

Its Fast, 1TB hard drive, the case is nice, the ram does the job

The power supply was LOUD. Graphics card did the job, i was able to play all new games at medium or low settings, but it wasn't enough for me

Great System at a Great Price

 

Going from a 6 year old AMD, XP, gaming system to this is like night and day. If you want a good, fast, gaming rig, you can't beat the price on this.

Fast, great value, lots of room for upgrades. Lots of value for the price

LOUD power supply

Amazing Purchase

 

With this desktop, I went ahead and bought a EVGA GTX460 to upgrade the 512 that came with the it. As soon as i pulled out card from the box, i was kinda worried it was too big for the mobo. (an 8inch card). Fit perfectly once installed. I also went...

Great size tower, nice blue led light on the front, spacious amount of room inside. Price was amazing. Shipping was amazing (paid for overnight and newegg is pretty good about it). This was my first ibuypower product, and now its a trusted brand in my...

Nothing really, the box came a little beat up, but no internal damage noted

just got mine

 

I found several plastic strips each with two small screws, anyone can tell me what is their purpose? thanks

cheap price ; I got mine as an open box, the previous owner fiddled with the outputs that are disabled while the working outputs are still covered with original plastics (there are two sets!!) ; No bloatware, decent speed - i3-550 is comparable to...

noisy fan ; front panel is loosely connnected to the cage

Stopped working after a week

 

Request sent for RMA but it sucks I have to pay shipping when its not my fault it doesn't work. Waiting to see what happens after I return it and how the new one works. I will update once I know.

Price ; Processing power ; Easy setup ; Pretty fast shipping once you get past verification

Stopped working after a week of use ; No Longer Boots up

Fast Ship Fast Computer

 

Very nice USB gaming mouse and keyboard included. The system was well boxed and arrived undamaged. A close look at connections inside the case did not turn up any loose or disconnected items and so far all is fine.

1) SuperFast shipping! Ordered Monday night, received in SCal Wednesday afternoon ; 2) Based on review suggestions also ordered the Radeon Sapphire HD5670 graphics card and installed this in the system. The case is huge! Lots of room, easy to swap the...

Non so far! I will grumble a bit at the almost completely perforated case top...mine now sits under a shelf where its protected but a wide open cover is just asking to have a catastophic spill of liquid inside

Update -- Lousy Quality Control CONFIRMED...

 

Didn't want to ship the whole computer off to IBuyPower to have them replace the hard drive and maybe lose all of my data, so I jerry-rigged a spacer by cutting the right-sized piece of plastic from a Safeway card. I hope I don't run into any more...

Here's an update from when I bought this computer back at the beginning of the year. Look for my other review (1/5/11) to see all the awesome points about this computer (still awesome)

Back when I first got the computer, I looked over the whole thing to make sure everything was connected properly, due to a few reviews complaining of sub-par quality control. In my other review, I mentioned that the hard drive wasn't connected. At the...

Happy with my purchase

 

I am hoping that this computer lasts me several years (with the expandable RAM, I believe that this should be the case). If all goes well, I will not have to use Newegg for a while, which is somewhat unfortunate, because they really are a great site.

After verifying my billing address (which was caused by my mistake), the delivery came in one day! The price was relatively cheap. The setup was absolutely easy. So far, it is running smoothly

Yeah, the fan is loud, but it really does not bother me. It does sound like there is a desk fan blowing in my room, but for this value, I really do not mind
