Decent system for the price!

 

Decent pre-fab system. Very reasonable for the money

Only drawback is that about a month ago, two of the USB ports stopped working unaccountably (not sure what caused it). I checked for loose cables; loose chips; overheating; shorts etc etc and could find nothing wrong. Two weeks after - the ports...

Kind of a lie

 

Honestly it is a good system however the price should be re -evaluated and the descriptions of the product changed and thoroughly inspected before sale again or in the future.

It has a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 which is far better than what is said in the description. Thus, it can hold 32GB of DDR3 RAM

The bad news is that they description of what the site tells you is wrong and have the sense of being lied to. Also it's not an FX 4300 is a 4130. I know both processors are 4 core but the fact remains that there not what you ask or get paid for

Good computer for the price, but the graphics card needs to be upgraded. I've had it for a year and have really enjoyed it.

Fast, worked perfectly right out of the box, shiny blue light, great price. It's been running Guild Wars 2, Portal 2, and Minecraft (with Feed the Beast mod packs) just fine. I thought I'd never love Windows 7 like I love XP, but it happened :)

While the graphics card has done well for me with the games I mentioned above, it definitely needs to be upgraded. Couldn't run Skyrim decently. I didn't bother using the keyboard and mouse it came with since I didn't care much for the feel of them,...

Great

 

Great machine for the price.

Is a great bang for the buck can run games great

Case is big and ugly

Great Value

 

Other then Micro$oft having about 155 updates to upload on first startup, everything easily installed from my old computer.

Was delivered, I let it sit overnight and hooked it up the next day. Everything went smooth. It runs quiet and is fast. There are better units at about double the cost, so this one is a keeper for the price

Could use more front panel USB ports or a hub. There's plenty in the rear but running them is a PITA

Solid but not for gaming

 

All in all satisfactory for what I wanted it for. (Media Center) connected to my LED TV, and as a Media Server for the other systems in my home network. There are several computers in the same price range MUCH better suited if your goal is gaming :-)

Powerful Quad Core processor and large HDD are great for video conversion and DVD burning. I use mine as a home Media Center and it's perfect for that purpose

Terrible for gaming without an upgraded video card, but FIRST you have to upgrade the weak 300W PSU... I've seen better onboard Graphics than this dedicated card. Definitely not out-of-box choice for a gamer

Great PC for the price

 

The computer is great but the power supply can only support to sata devices, so the hard and disk drive are the only 2 things you can put in it, I'll probably get a new power supply but it definitely isn't something that would get in the way for the...

Built In wifi ; Nvidia Graphics ; Quad core processor ; windows 7

Good Computer For The Price

 

I just wish the computer would get that little extra FPS that I was hoping for.

This computer has a good processor and RAM with a 7.2 Windows rating for the CPU, 7.4 for the RAM, a 4.6 for Graphics, a 6.3 for Gaming Graphics and a 5.9 for the Disk Data Transfer Rate. I would definitely recommend this to my friends

The only bad thing about this computer for me is that even though it has good specs it doesn't get the 60+ frames in games such as Minecraft for me. I would recommend upgrading the graphics card and power supply soon

iBUYPOWER Gamer Power NE690FX

 

This computer shipped very fast. I was not disappointed in the performance one bit. It has run perfectly with the games i have tried on it. well worth the price

Was surprised to find that the front usb drives (both the 2.0 and the 3.0) were not working. Turns out they didnt connect the wires to the motherboard. simple fix, but if i did not have prior knowledge of computers then i would have had no idea how to...

Great product with few hitches

 

The computer is great if you are planning on using it for light gaming and media, i plan on upgrading mine in the near future, a cablecard tuner and better graphics card are on the top of the list

I received the product quickly ; It works well with most game son high settings but dont expect all games to run well, saints row the third runs slow on medium settings and batman ark-am asylum runs slow on any setting ; It was quick to setup other...

The motherboard output does not work. may be a issue with mine, but it doesnt effect me other than the fact i have to go out and buy a dvi connector instead of being able to use the second hdmi output ; It is often loud ; the mouse and keyboard are...
