2 out of 5 eggsLaid an egg

Pros: On paper, this system can't be touched. I tried to spec it out at both Newegg's and iBuypower's websites and couldn't get within a few hundred dollars.

Cons: Just like all the other 1 egg reviews, mine crashed when trying to play any game. It was the Zotac card. I RMA'ed it back to iBuypower for an eVGA 560. That card was DOA. They sent me another eVGA 560 and that one seems to be working fine. The onboard audio ceased to function after 2 days.

Other Thoughts: If you are willing to RMA the card back for another brand, the computer can't be beat for price and components. The mobo is an Asrock Pro SE. Never heard of them before but it seems to be holding its own thus far. It now runs BF3 with no problems but it took two weeks to get it working right. I also added and ASUS Xonar DX to replace the onboard audio. iBuypower's tech support has been top notch thus far and has bent over backwards to make the system right. There are only 2 accessible PCI E slots, a 1x and 16x. It comes with 2 1x slots but any video card bigger than a GT 240 will cover the lower 1x slot. If this system is re-released with a different video card, jump on it, but keep in mind the onboard audio is flakey at best. Had this system run like it does now out of the box, I would have given it 7 eggs. You get what you pay for.

2 out of 5 eggsBad PSU

Pros: Runs well after I replaced the PSU.

Cons: Once the graphics card is in use, the computer shuts down since the PSU is not adequate. After buying a new one and replacing it, the computer runs well.

Other Thoughts: It's pretty clear iBUYPOWER put the minimal amount of effort testing this computer. They got it to boot but it seems they didn't bother actually trying to run a game on this gaming computer or else they would have clearly seen there was a problem with it.

1 out of 5 eggsIt restarts for no apparent reason

Pros: Nice specs on paper

Cons: The computer restarts after running Far Cry 2 for about 10 seconds. Tried 6 more times and same results. All the other reviewers were correct ... .something is fundamentally wrong with this system. Don't they stress test these computers before shipping them? How inconvenient!

3 out of 5 eggsProbable PSU issue

Pros: Like the others say, its a great system when running.

Cons: Restarts while playing games, on higher settings.

Other Thoughts: Probable PSU issue. The PSU sent with the system is on some replace ASAP lists. The tests i have done on all the parts seem to confirm this, as the problem.

I honestly doubt if i sent the PSU back i would get a better one in return, so probably gonna just go ahead and buy a new one.

If the PSU was a better one i would have given this a 5 star rating. I was almost certain when i bought it tho, that it wouldnt be tho. It instead gets a 3 for the inconvienence and having to shell out more money so soon after the purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsOne more complaint

Pros: Very fast; beautiful graphics. HOWEVER>>>

Cons: Shuts off by itself, usually during the raid. Very disappointing for 1K price tag.

Other Thoughts: Just fix it already. I've already notified iBUYPOWER of the problem of which I'm sure they are aware.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: Seems like it would be a decent computer.

Cons: Doesn't run anything. As seen from the other reviews, it will start up any game, and then immediately restart after about 10-15 seconds. Do not buy.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this computer

Pros: None

Cons: Not very reliable

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these. Within a day the first one was restarting at random while gaming. The second wouldn't even boot up on the second day. Avoid these computers

1 out of 5 eggsBig pain

Pros: looks good.

Cons: I should've listened to the other reviews before buying this computer. I'm extremely dissapointed that such a seemingly great system like this can't even run the games i want to play. If you pay a grand on something...it shouldnt have such a huge problem with it. Hopefully i can return this product and get my money back.

Other Thoughts: keep this product off the market until the problem has been fixed.

1 out of 5 eggsLongtime ibuypower customer

Pros: It has many pros such as good hardware (when it works)

Cons: The graphics card crashes upon launching any game even WoW after about 2 minutes. Like you hit the power button and it shuts off crash.

Other Thoughts: I really would like a exchange or a repair of this product Ibuypower. I like this computer to be honest and I like purchasing from you guys. Please get back to me asap. I also left a message on your guys machines.
