    Surprisingly awesome

    I am really impressed with the computer and the computer company. I agonized over the purchase because of my doubts about straying from the "industry standard" companies. I have seventeen plus years of IT experience with a large state government agency and have built hundreds of computers, mainly from Compaq, Dell and HP. What convinced me was the verified components that ARE industry standard parts. My fear was that I would get a junky box with incompetent or sloppy installation of the nice components. I have seen crappy cases that had sharp edges and required three hands to put the sides on and poorly managed wiring and components that weren't seated or plugged in. This was NOT the case with this tower; the component installation was immaculate. The case was large, but that just gives lots of room for air to circulate and space for add-ins. I ran through the Windows startup routine and in just a few minutes added my virus protection and imported some favorites and was ready to go. If there were updates for the build I didn't see them and it has been flawless for two days. It is FAST, quiet, and runs my 50 inch 4k monitor very well. I have tossed around the idea of doubling the memory and adding a nice GPU, but so far I just don't see the need. I am happy with the computer and the absence of bloatware that other makers force on you. Good job iBuyPower techs and salesforce.

    Fast, expandable PC

    Posted
    Dave

    I will start this review by saying this PC is a replacement for one in which a capacitor melted on the motherboard (different brand). So I had a power supply, graphics card, one terabyte hard drive, and a DVD writer to connect to this PC. The case is huge so there is ample room to work inside it to easily install these devices. However there is no way to mount hard drive for the DVD drive in the case. For now the hard drive just sits in the bottom of the case and I just connect the DVD drive when it needed. If I need a more permanent DVD Drive I will purchase a USB drive, which good ones run only about $25. The cables in the case are well organized and looks very neat inside. The performance is outstanding. If you purchase this PC be ready to add a graphics card and a larger hard drive. The power supply is a 400 watt power supply, which is marginal if you add a decent graphics card. There is space to mount another solid state drive in the case and plenty of USB ports for all my external devices.

    iBuyPower ARC945 i7-8700 @ 3.20GHZ 16.0 GB My old computer died Sunday night, I saw this on sale for $699 at Best Buy and ordered it Monday morning and it was delivered mid-day Tuesday. This is a no frills fast computer. Plenty of power with a 6 core i7 and SSD hard drive. The case is completely empty, in order to add a harddrive I had to use the cage from my old computer. There is no place for a DVD drive or media reading -- the case has no openings or cutouts other than the PCI slots. It comes with 2 DVDs but you will have to use an external DVD drive for them. The DVDS are: a Win-10 reinstallation disk and an Asus hardware support disk. I did not get a mouse with mine.

    Amazing PC for a pre-build

    Posted

    Lets start off by talking about whats inside the box, The CPU is an I7-8700 not the K version so there is no overclocking on this system, however you can always upgrade in the future if you choose. This comes with 16 Gigs of DDR4 RAM which if you know PC building you understand that it costs a pretty penny. There is no graphics card which is why I recommend this box for people coming from older DDR3 Sockets but already have a GPU and PSU. A GPU + PSU are the only thing you are going to need to make this boy play the latest games at a decent frame rate. I slapped a 1080ti in there and have no issues. A good pick up to save time + money

    Great Computer for a beginner

    I purchased the iBuyPower ARC 945 with the intent of having a hassle free upgrade path readily available and it did not disappoint. The ARC 945 is a "barebones" PC -- it actually comes prepacked with everything an everyday user might need (CPU, RAM, an OS, PSU, a super-fast Solid State Drive, et cetera), and almost everything a gamer might desire (it does not come with a GPU!). After tinkering with the innards, I managed to fit a brand new EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti inside with a new 550W PSU from ThermalTake. This turned the ARC 945 from a "barebones" PC to a gamer's first foray into the PC realm. I am extremely excited to use this baby for years to come.

    I was looking to upgrade my CAD work station. The i7 processor and 16 GB caught my attention. The built in graphic card was the only downside. But I upgraded with a Nvideo GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card and the system has worked flawlessly. No bloatware installed and room to add additional hard drives. One tip, the built it wifi is just a dongle connected to a USB cord. I couldn't get signal, so I just unhooked from the interior, removed one of the PCI slot covers in the back and taped the dongle/cord to the exterior of the case. Now I get a great signal.

    I bought this tower to build off of and so far its been great for that. While the pc doesn't come with much I am impressed with what it did come with. Mine came with a Asus MOBO that seems to be no slouch. I also appreciate the amount of room in the case. Aside from adding my graphics card from my previous tower, the only thing I would upgrade on this pc is the power supply. It's rated for 400w and has a 6pin power connecter... You could probably run a GTX 1060 on that PSU, but I plan upgrading to a stronger PSU when I upgrade from my GTX 1050 ti to an RTX.

    This is my first PC and I have bought it to upgrade. I will be putting a GTX 1060 6gb SC and a new power supply. I will also be adding RAM and a hhd as well. It seems to be a great computer for this as I did not want to build one from the ground up and it has a very large case for expansion. I had an issue with the RAM not being seated properly out of the box. It would not boot up but after some trouble shooting I realized it was just the RAM not being correctly seated. Very nice PC overall and I recommend this to anyone who would like to get into PC gaming.

    The iBUYPOWER tower pc is a fast powerhouse of a computer. The 256GB SSD drive is sufficient for the boot requirements. I bought an external 4TB USB 3.0 drive for $69 and pointed My Documents, Picture, Download, Music, Video and Desktop folders there. So - if I ever need to change PC's - all my data is there. The internal video is not bad for basic gaming.. like minecraft or fortnite. The unit screams in these games. Browsing and Office applications opwerate quickly. Overall a fantastic value for an I7 based machine at 3.2Ghz, an SSD drive and 16GB of RAM!

    This computer is extremely fast from boot - to - use. The SSD drive provides and almost instant-on system. I added a 4TB USB drive from BestBuy for file storage. Window 10 allows you to move your user files to the external drive easily. That way, this system is now extremely usable at a much lower cost that purchasing a system with an installed large storage drive. The graphics certainly work fine for an on-board graphics card. Myh child plays fortnite, minecraft and many other online games with ease. This is a great buy!

    I had been looking at this computer for a couple of months and finally bought it when it went on sale. I bought it for 3 reasons - I wanted the Intel i7 processor, 16GB memory and a solid state drive and as an added bonus the tower is white which goes perfectly in my office. I love this computer. It's super fast and was super easy to set up. It has endless possibilities for upgrading. Really happy with my purchase. Just wish the mouse that came with it was wireless.

    Bought while it was on sale for $630 it was a steal even though it doesn’t come with a graphics card! i7-8700k, 16 ram, 240 ssd, it’s a fast pc! And the case isn’t for show no tempered glass but it is still very sleek with the white!! Even without a gpu 5 stars because the price allows me to save for more components!!

    Wow what can I say, this PC is a beast. Everything was perfect and the setup took less than an hour. Upgraded the power supply and popped in a 1060 6gb and man this thing is quite literally a powerhouse. Runs all game maxed 60 FPS+. I always build my own pc but found this GEM at bestbuy for $829.99 and man I really couldn't be more happier! Great job IBUYPOWER!

    This is basically a gaming computer without the graphics card and extra memory. This was really perfect for me because in my old computer everything broke down except my graphics card and ssd. If you’re also in a tight budget for a gaming computer this is also a great option because graphics cards are cheap and same with SSD’s nowadays. Easy setup/easy install everything. Very very fast too!

    Good value for a basic platform

    Student

    It's a no-frills basic desktop platform with a 240GB SDD and 8th-gen i7, which is exactly what I was looking for. Added a 1TB HDD for additional storage and upgraded the wifi adapter (the stock one is AC600). No problems so far. Just be aware that there is no optical drive in case you need to use an install disk for anything.

    Got this bad boy on sale. Could not beat the value for the performance. I don't use it for gaming, but for dabbling in music production. It is plenty powerful enough for anything I will do. Mouse feels cheap but that is hardly an issue. It works fine. Other PCs with these features cost hundreds more. Very happy.

    A fantastic price for allot of computing power, and the ability to update / customize your computer. A great tool for my child to learn how to build / install cards on a tower computer. We had no trouble installing a new graphics card and setting it up. I could not find a comparable computer at the same price. Highly recommend it! Also, had great help and advice from Perry at Best Buy!

    First off, this was my first PC and large purchase coming out of college. I was NOT disappointed. The performance of this beast pleases me everyday. I have been using it for 4 months now and nothing has changed. Whether I am gaming or doing daily office tasks, it performs beautifully. So far no complaints, and I am happy as ever with it!

    For any user that need a simple, fast, and capable system, I would highly recommend this. The SSD allows Windows 10 to boot quickly, and the integrated graphics are fine for most non-gaming or audio/video editing applications. The case is sufficiently spacious enough to allow for expansion of an optical drive or graphics card.

    It seems that the configuration has changed over time. My setup has 6 USB ports, but it has USB 3.1 A and C. It did not have DP, DVI or VGA ports, just HDMI. It does have Bluetooth, Wi-fi and ethernet. The motherboard is an ASRock B360M with DDR4 2666 memory. The case is beautiful with one tempered glass side.
