5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Love this computer; bought it on sale back in 2012 since the over all price beat out purchasing the same components individually; keyboard and mouse were also a superb plus for $900 total. Turns on in 9 seconds (before I filled up the SSD), still turns on in about 12-17 seconds over a year later. Keyboard feels great to type with (has kind of a soft sand absorption when pressing keys, although that goes away after about 3-4 months). Tower's 3.4 ghz i7 and 16gb ram components make using software like Adobe Premiere and Photoshop power up and carry out processes incredibly fast. Gtx 660 makes it possible to run all my games on ultra settings without any noticeable loss of frame rate. Mouse has a decent feel; it's a step up from a basic mouse, so gaming with it is do-able if not comfortable. Tower is fairly quiet and has plenty of room to install extra components like fans. Tower also came with a disk for Windows 8.
This computer essentially gives the buyer everything but a monitor, which is excellent.

Cons: Not really a gripe, but the OS (Windows 8) had to be installed and activated, which required looking for the activation code on the side of the tower, although that was probably my own slowness at work.
Something else I'm experiencing just recently (a little over a year after purchase) is the paint on the mouse is starting to scratch and fleck off a little bit.
Some keys, like shift and control, require a more stern press to lock in, even though the rest of the keyboard presses smoothly. When I have to hold the shift or control keys for an extended period, my left pinkie can't hold out.
One other problem I had for a month or so was the 500gb HDD wasn't showing up in My Computer, although it came back after a month; still don't know exactly what happened.

Other Thoughts: This was my first gaming computer purchase, and I am over-all very happy with it. After shopping in the online computer market for a computer with a price that was not some sort of unfair trick or "discount", this bundle was a dream come true. I had searched for the past year before purchase and all other similar deals came with either lower performance specs or had tricky prices that didn't really give a deal or even par value at that; at the time, this tower bundle was about $300-400 dollars below the cost of buying the same exact parts individually; and at that, it came with a free keyboard and mouse. Best of all, I didn't have to assemble it either, aside from installing the Windows 8 software which came with it.
Combined with buying a 24" Dell monitor on sale, I totaled at about $1000, which was exactly my target budget.
I am very, very happy with my purchase. Quite honestly, the price combined with the good specs made it one of my most satisfying purchases to date.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: Great for gaming, best computer I have ever owned. I will most likely recommend this computer to the gaming folks I know. :)

Cons: Headphone jack will not work for long with games, Sound card has been failing in the past few weeks as well as the graphics card. (May just be a few defects in my certain sound card & or Graphics card. Every now and then there is a loud, high pitched rattling in the desktop. I have yet to find the source.

Other Thoughts: Would love to buy more from IBUYPOWER. Note for the CEO: Add Computer inspection to the factory line, Manually of course.
Thank you for the wonderful gaming computer. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy!

Pros: Great buy! For the hardware this machine comes with, the price is a no brainer. I have played WOW (70-100fps), Skyrim and Diablo at max setting with no issues whatsoever! The processor, memory, graphics card and SSD make this machine great for any gamer!

Cons: Not really cons, seeing I knew about both of these before I purchased the machine.

-The fan for the power supply is located on the bottom of the machine. Not a huge deal, but would be nice to have it on the back or top of the case.

-Only room for 16gb of RAM. Would be nice if the chipset include space to expand to 32gb.

Other Thoughts: This is a must have for any gamer on a budget. This machine is a plug and play! I did however reformat to Windows 7. Windows 8 is confusing and Windows 7 is just so user friendly.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Buy, Solid Customer Service

Pros: Quick Start up with the SSD, runs cool and quiet. Will run any current game on max-near max settings. Gfx card is a bit of a tank. Not bad for the purchase price, I got mine Open box for 919$, and am very satisfied with the purchase.

Cons: GFX card artifacted and had to be RMA'd within a week of using the computer, iBuyPower shipped me a new card when I shipped them the old one. A little annoying for a new computer, but I had the new card in about a week. There is not a ton of room for expandability in the case.

Other Thoughts: Picked this up when it was an open box deal (still is an open box deal). Showed up without any cosmetic damage on the case, which is a good sign. The gfx card gave out on me the first weekend I had the machine, so that was a bit of a letdown. I had a new one within two weeks though from the time I shipped the broken card back to IbuyPower, which seems like a good turn around to me. I would recommend this machine to a friend, it can handle most of the games out and the ones for the forseeble future with ease. It stays quiet and cool, and I have never had any issues with overheating so far. The power supply is a little on the weaker side, and the case, while being huge), doesn't seem to support a lot of room for additions.

5 out of 5 eggsAn excellent steal

Pros: I bought this when it was "Open Box" for $919 ($891 after shipping and coupons/gift cards). Powered up right out of the box, very quiet and easy Windows 8 setup. Absolutely LOVE Windows 8, don't know why everyone keeps talking bad about it and the UI, one click and it's back to the classic Windows UI that you love and used to. The power supply is more than enough for the current setup, stays cool unless you play games in 90+ degree temp. rooms. Handles every game I've played so far on high settings (WoW, LoL, Dead Space 3, SimCity) at 60+ fps.

Cons: none atm

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: It runs Skyrim and Tera Online at full graphic settings without fail. Looks beautiful. I love this computer. Super quiet fans. Excellent price and great video card. I have owned it now for 4 months I believe.

Cons: DVDs tend to skip when watching. I bought a new DVD multi drive and now it works great.
