4 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Pros:
- Great value. Buying and assembling the individual components would be almost the same cost.
- Great RAM amount, power source, and case. These are the sort of things that are usually skimped on in bargain systems, but not this one.
- A clean install of WIN7 and that's it, no bloatware. Awesome...

Cons: Cons:
- Obscenely bright fan light LEDs that will illuminate an entire room. I'm still waiting to hear back from the manufacturer to see if there is a way to turn them off without resorting to clipping wires.
- The processor, power source, and RAM are unnecessarily powerful for the on-chip HD4600 graphics. If you run current games or video software, the 4600 will likely bottleneck the system, leaving all that shiny computing power unused. You will probably want to install a separate video card.

Other Thoughts: This system is exactly what I was looking for.

My old system was starting to get bottlenecked by its six year old processor, so I needed to upgrade. But I had a decent, newer PCI-E video card (GTX-650) that is still usable. So I wanted to find a new system with a good processor, RAM amount, and power supply that DIDN'T come bundled with a video card. iBUYPOWER's rig was the best one for that.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer

Pros: The computer runs great! I used to have to wait over a minute for my computer to boot up but this has a great boot time and is ready to be used only a short time after it is turned on. It is good for gaming and surfing the web. I can run League Of Legends and Minecraft with plenty of FPS, although It may not be able run a game like battlefield, but I have not tried. I love the design of the desktop with the see through case.

Cons: The ibuypower keyboard and mouse that come with the computer feel very cheap and the mouse was broken when I opened the box. The usb ports on the front of the computer seem to be unusable and that is a bit disappointing.

4 out of 5 eggsGood choice for me

Pros: When my not-too-old gaming laptop decided its motherboard was no longer going to function, I suddenly lost my main computer. Right as I was about to do some fairly serious computational experimentation for a paper I was writing. Great.

So I wanted to steer clear of gaming laptops, but I still wanted a fairly powerful computer that would have more RAM than a gamer could want this generation (and I did need 16Gig for my purposes) and would not be a huge drain on my wallet. I toyed with building a machine, but realistically that looked like it was going to be even more expensive than just outright buying.

Then I cam across this machine for about $699 (note, it's even cheaper now, but of course hardware often drops suddenly). It had a decent, current generation processor with the new Intel graphics card which has been much improved. It had a terabyte harddrive (I was only expecting half that, so that's nice).

I was favorably impressed playing Crusader Kings 2 and Team Fortress 2 with the Intel graphics card, not that those are remotely stressful games for a modern system's graphics. Honestly though, if you want to be a "gamer" and use this as such, you'll want to add a graphics card. I put in a MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 2GB which has worked splendidly so far. I'm able to run more modern games with that just fine, but I'm not obsessed with framerate and resolution. Then again this is almost a budget system in total (less than a thousand dollars) so it's more than adequate for what I wanted. In fact, I am hard put to find another computer in that price range that met my requirements.

Also, as of this review, I have completed my experiments and published my paper, so needless to say I am very happy with that result!

Cons: Well, only a "sort of" con. It comes with a keyboard and mouse. Not really necessary, and I've not used them. I understand some have driver problems with them. I can't speak to that, but if I do decide to try them out, I'll come back and amend this review.

The power supply is only 500W, a little low once you add another graphics card, so I'm concerned it might need to be replaced. So far there's not been a problem with it. So, again, only a potential con.

4 out of 5 eggsHDMI is working now

Pros: Good price. Quite and fast. A lot of zoom for expansion.

Earlier, when my HDMI port was not working, I got the impression this machine is not good. However, after the technician from iBuyPower contacted me and asked me to download the updated driver from Gigabyte (motherboard), all the problem is resolved.

Cons: It would be better if there were some notes about where to download the updated drivers.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

Pros: On paper and theory would be a great value.

Cons: Right out the box, got the blue screen repeatedly. Exactly like the previous reviews stated, didn't come with the video card, for a new computer if it delivered as expected would be a great value, but if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Couldn't recommend this to anyone.

3 out of 5 eggsHDMI is not working

Pros: looks like a good computer at this price range

Cons: HDMI is not working, though both VGA and DVI are working. Sent an email to eService at iBuyPower, and would report back here once this problem is resolved.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Comp goes Blue!

Pros: powerful enough for next gen gaming If* you get a Vid card. Large case, great for upgrades, 2x8 DDR3 RAM w/ 2 more open slot of upgrades! (32 GIG RAM)

Cons: System critical failures due to hardware confliction or inproper instalation. caused blue screen and flicker/freezing where hard boot was required -2 eggs
IBUYPOWER Keyboard and mouse have no drivers to incorperate the Extra mouse buttons. therefore are useless. -1 Egg
(Returned for a new one) GET WARRENTY!

Other Thoughts: I really hope Newegg isn't too strict about me loosing the mouse package. If that voids my return... It's a 5 cent card board box for Comp sake!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat machine

Pros: Intel HD 4600 GPU is faster than I expected (I'm not a gamer, though)
Haswell core i5
16 GB of ram
Great case
Listed as having a 500GB HDD, but mine came with a 1TB drive. Thanks!

Cons: Only 4 SATA power plugs from the power supply
Placement of the pipe/backslash key on the keyboard not what I'm used to

Other Thoughts: I'm using this for photo/video work and it is a sweet machine. I will probably invest in a discrete graphics card at some point, but the intel 4600 beats the 4-yr-old radeon 1GB card I had been using, so I'm happy for now. Maybe onboard graphics are now acceptable for the non-gamers among us without retina-type displays? For reference, I have a dual-monitor setup (a 1920x1080 and a 1440x900) and it's satisfactory.

As I mentioned in the cons, there are only four SATA power plugs coming from the power supply, but I want to say there are six SATA inputs on the MOBO. I put two other drives in from my old computer, but I'd like to get an SSD at some point so I guess I'll have to get a 4-pin to 15-pin adapter when/if I do. The case is great for expanding. I want to say there are 8 3.5" slots. Maybe my dream of putting all my photos on a RAID 5 array will someday come true with this machine.

Instead of having the pipe/backslash key above the enter key like I'm used to, the keyboard cuts off the left part of it and turns enter into a square that spans two rows. It's a matter of preference, but I'm hitting backslash on accident quite a bit. Maybe that's standard on gaming keyboards.

No bloatware and it ran great right out of the box. You can't beat newegg shipping, either. I think this is a great buy.
