Pros: This is a great gaming PC - MSI GTX 970,Intel i7 - 4.0 GHZ CPU, SSD makes for fast boots and it all runs cool with Liquid cooling for CPU. Boots up to desktop in 6-7 seconds for me. Lightning fast PC that plays all games on High to Ultra with zero difficulties. Easy to get set up, pretty much plug and play after you update Windows and get use to Windows 8.1 ridiculous user interface.

Cons: 600 watt Power Supply is cutting it to close. A 750 Watt Power Supply should have also been set up for this Rig. It has high end parts for the most part...it should have a powers supply to support high end Performance hardware. Also The 1 TB hard Drive was installed "crooked" at a 45 degree angle. All works well but I had to set it to the correct position, not a huge issue Windows 8.1 - I know, some people will say "you new that going into it and it's unfair t take an egg for this". My experience my money, my review. Windows 8.1 is garbage. We all know it, Microsoft knows it, iBUYPOWER knows it. This PC should have had Windows 7 Home/Pro 64 bit installed on it... End of story!

Overall Review: Price is a tad steep for the hardware but that's to be expected with a Pre-built PC. If you can't be bothered with a DIY PC, then this a very solid option. Also if you can afford to shell out the extra 100 bucks get Windows 7, It's worth it.
