This computer is excellent for gamers new or familiar to the PC gaming scene. The ONLY downside to buying this computer is that you will need to upgrade your graphics card if you wish play some of the current games on High or Ultra settings (such as Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty). If you are looking for a computer with a low cost that only needs a simple upgrade ($200 graphics card would do you good) then this is for you. I already puchased my graphics card and it as well as the PC arrived on the same day. Computer works flawless I had no troubles at all. To the person who complained about the DVI/VGA cord not coming with it (aka monitor cord) when you buy a monitor it comes with the cord you need; the tower does not. The processor is also extremely easy to overclock. Simply enter the BIOS and change the multiplier to 22.5 for an easy overclock to 4500MHz with the STOCK FAN. Highly reccommend.
Shipping was fast, received way before they said it would be here. You have to put in the code for Windows 8. I guess they save a little money that way. The monitor hook up was VGA and HDMI so you do not have to pickup a HDMI converter as stated in the Q&A for this computer. I do not use it as a gamer. I just wanted a fast computer with lots of RAM. This just what I received. The computer is Great.
This computer is amazing. I use it to run skyrim, and it runs on medium. You may need to upgrade your graphics card for amazing gaming. Windows 8 is really fun to use but needs getting used to. I love it.
For the price, this PC is an excellent buy. Had no problems out of the box, everything worked right away. Took less than 5 minutes to get everything set up and running. Easily upgradable and can run modern games in decent settings. Also this arrived to me 2 days before the expected delivery date. Would absolutely recommend this PC to anyone who needs a new gaming machine or is wanting to try out PC gaming for the first time.
It works good just when I got it the keyboard did not work and I had to call manufacturer or have them ship me a whole new computer. Also there was no cord to hook from case to monitor. You have to buy that separate which I thought that was weird. There was also no blue light in it.
The Pc was all it claimed to be it was packed well and started right up just enter your Windows 8 key on the side and your up and going It plays Diablo 3 with no issues I am happy with my new computer from iBUYPOWER
While this system could use a higher-end graphics card (the Radeon 7770 would, at this point in time, be an excellent choice at a reasonable price), the value-for-money ratio is very good. The processor, memory, and the power supply are all fine for most gaming. A good choice for the budget-conscious.
This computer runs better than we expected with one fair exclusion: the graphics card. First off, this graphics card isn't designed for gaming, so we didn't expect too much. However, when it kept crashing during fallout 3 New Vegas (which it ran on medium settings at 30 fps), we knew something was up. It turns out the driver doesn't match the graphics card because AMD doesn't support windows 8 yet. (FYI, With the drivers they installed, it ran skyrim at 20 fps on low settings, which was pretty choppy.)
We installed an descent graphics card from our old computer, and it ran like a dream.
I got this for my Son. He says it is super fast and lighting quick. The side drops down with a turn of two pegs for upgrades. It is really easy to set up and begin using. Windows 8 is great and easy to get used to. The only thing is I guess it does not have a wireless card because I had to hook it all up to a router with a network line. Which is easy, but for some reason, even though it is a desktop, I was thinking it would get on wifi, but Im sure I am probably wrong. We are not techno savvy but just wanted a fast computer to play games on without clogging up the laptops. It is a super machine for the price, I dont think you can beat it.
I ordered this and had it shipped to store. It was shipped from California and was in my house almost a week before it was expected to. This computer is great for casual gaming and windows 8 really isn't as bad as I thought it'd be. Mine came with a blue LED fan and an AMD FX-4130, however, it did not come with the the "game voucher" which I don't care but I'd rather have better specs than a free game.
This build can play Minecraft on maximum settings and if you have the optifine mod for it you can even play on extreme (which is 512m rather than 206m) at 30 fps with a 1600x900 monitor. It will also play other games on low with ease and high framerates.
The only problem I had with this computer was the power supply unit only having two SATA power ports, so I replaced that with a better one. Other than that, this computer is amazing!
I highly recommend this computer.
Everything out of the box was as described. The item is well-built and sturdy but, easy to work with and access. Has all of the features I was looking for and the capability to add others in the future if I decide to.
for the price, this is a good computer. But i like to play games on the highest settings, so i upgraded the graphics card. the cpu fan is also kind of loud, but tolerable. i am planning on replacing the CPU fan. Also, in the picture, the case has blue lighting, but the actual case doesnt.
Buying this computer was a huge waste of my time. My friend bought the exact same one on the same day and got it the same day. My does not run, his does. I needed that computer for school. Ibuy Power does not even inspect their computers before the sell them to see if it works. I would recommend you stop selling their products before you continue to get everyday customers like myself thinking about switching to meijer. I dont have a printer to print the reciept so I gotta use a friends then i am returning this terrible product as soon as possible
EXTREMELY QUIET! Very fast and very cheap!
The tower wasn't the one we picked and it doesn't glow. The picture is of the tower we got. The tower is great and the keyboard and mouse are nice. They match nicely to each other. We are rather disappointed that it was supposed to glow, but doesn't. However, it plays wonderfully is a great tower with plenty of room for upgrades and expansions.
so far works great..looks good..meets my needs.
When the computer arrived, Windows had not been fully loaded. I had to wait an additional 2 weeks to get a Windows disk sent to me so I could make the computer run.
Hardware problems evident upon arrival. Poor performance. Ibuypower can't be reached for help. Wasted over 5 hours trying to get this machine to run. Do yourself a favor and avoid. Once you buy, you can't get help.
after I bought the computer, I wanted to connect 2 monitors in, I went to frys to buy an adapter DVI to VGA to conect them. But it didn't work, i thought probably that adapter is not compatible to the graphic card, so I drive Frys again to buy another one and the DVI-VGA cable too. But then it's still not work :( (only the VGA port is working). So I had to drive to Frys again to buy new Graphic cards to install in. It take too many rounds to run back and forth. I not recomment people buy this (my situation should've been known from their tech. (I tried to find a tech support on their website, but there isn't any tech. supporting #). I recommend people buy parts and build your own. This is low quality inside. :(. I can't return because I tear the box all aparts :((
Pretty good machine, works fine with gaming or working, found no real faults in it other than the massive size of it, but it was okay
