    This computer is a beast! It has worked flawlessly since I took it out of the box. Setup was extremely easy. Everything was packaged neatly. Loading times are insane. I paired it with a 27" MSI Optix MAG27C curved monitor. I am known to have no less than 15 browser tabs open at any given time. I still play StarCraft 2 and I am looking to get more into gaming...just downloaded FortNite. I have had this computer about a month and I have zero complaints. The 2080 graphics card is amazing. The i8700 processor hasn't had any problems running anything I've thrown at it. If I built this computer myself, including software, I would have paid a similar price. I plan to get a few more fans, but other than that I should be set for a few years at least.

    Purchased this to replace our studio PC. Needed something quiet but with processing power to both record and live stream via YouTube & Twitch. This computer handles that like a pro! Also runs out video edging software & photoshop smoothly. It was easy to add a mechanical drive to & the internal wiring is well hidden & easy to access. The liquid cooled system causes it to run much quieter than our old PC causing less worry about ambient sound when recording. We did do a little gaming on it and I’m happy to say 7 Days To Die runs smooth at 60fps. Only downside is I’m not a huge fan of the mouse or keyboard it came with but already had a good keyboard & mouse to replace them with. We unboxed this computer on Smarkdown Radio on YouTube. Feel free to check it out. https://youtu.be/756KEz3tC5E

    I'm not a gamer, but I purchased this ibuypower pc for two reasons; for work and to use as a media center pc. I have taken all of our families digital home video and stored it on this 1Tb ssd. Since this pc is just outside our home theater, I was able to run a long hdmi cable through the wall to it. In the future I plan on upgrading the storage memory in the form of a 2 Tb m.2 ssd. I'm waiting for the prices on those to come down. Back to the pc...I love how fast it is. It takes about 30 seconds to restart since the entire OS is on the ssd. I also love how easy it is to control the colors on and inside the case.

    For the price this is the best gaming computer I have ever had. I am replacing a ASUS gaming computer that is the second ASUS I have had. The first one I had to send back after 1 month and the second I should have sent back because it is a hunk of garbage. I love the IBUYPOWER that I have been using now for 3 weeks. It never heats up It runs very cool even though I have games on one screen and YouTube going on the other screen. I also use it to play with the Oculus while showing what I am seeing on our 65 inch QLED television. When I tried this with the ASUS the card would get so hot it could burn you if you touched it. I like that I can play any game and with the 2080 graphics card I can stream as well without overheating. Love this computer.

    First gaming PC

    So... I have been looking into getting a gaming PC for a long time, like years, but I just have never pulled the trigger on one. I was looking online and found this computer on sale for $500 dollars off as a deal of the day. I took it home hooked it up and honestly, I am amazed the performance that this thing puts out. I played R6S for about 5 hours that night and had no issues, besides being inexperienced with PC. I would like to say though, I did try playing R6S on ultra settings and it worked great for about 2 matches, but the game crashed on the 3 match. Playing on high or very high setting gives me no issues at all. I have not tried ultra since, but still this thing is a beast. I would definitely recommend it if you can get it on sale like I did!

    Incredible power. Quality Build.

    I don't typically write product reviews because i typically just buy the product, use it, and forget it about it for the most part. HOWEVER, this is to date my largest personal purchase and i was unexpectedly hesitant regarding the monolithic price tag. I've always wanted my very own gaming PC but never had the funds. After deciding to guy big or go home I pulled the trigger. No. Regrets. Firstly, the build quality is stellar (And for 2000 it should be.) The RGB lighting matches the tempered glass door and steel case masterfully. Cable management is on point which seems to be a crap shoot with alot of other pre built rigs. Oh and I almost forgot, this beast plays everything I throw at it at ultra settings at 100+ FPS. Best Buy? I'm in love :)

    I needed a good gaming PC and caught this on sale for $1,800. It handles whatever games I throw at it like a champ. I use an Acer XF270H for gaming (144 Hz) games look big and buttery and a generic flat panel Dell for my second. Also the listing says it doesn't come with blue tooth but it does and syncs easily and quickly with my phones, headphones and controllers. The side panel comes off making future upgrades quick and painless, I also like that you can turn off the lights inside the case, but I do like that the mouse lights up, that's kinda neat. I also add a 4TB external drive for movies and music so I could have just my games om the PC. I would with out a doubt recommend this if you have two grand to spend.

    I've been building my own gaming computers for years, I also work in IT, and there comes a point where you just don't want to IT at home anymore. I decided to go down the path of looking at prebuilt systems and scouring for reviews for gaming PC companies. At the end of the day, I settled on iBuyPower. The scale of the hardware and the price they charge, to me at least, is the most closely priced gaming PC for what I could buy components for and build myself. I don't believe in paying extra for big name logos for most things, so this was an easy concession. I've had the PC for about 2 weeks now, and have had zero issues. I would recommend iBuyPower to anyone out there looking for a quality built gaming PC for the right price. Well done iBuyPower

    The iCore7 processor and the SSD which encompassed the entire 1TB of RAM were key in choice over other PCs. Space to add another 16GB memory card and the newest NVIDIA graphics card were also great! Liquid cooling was a bonus. Very quiet machine! The price was also better than expected with the included components and was better than other PCs. Best Buy associate was really helpful because I had a lot of notes and read a lot of online opinions regarding different components and their performances in different PCs. He cut through the chaos and asked me the right questions. In the end, I was very comfortable with my choice. Setup was quick and easy. Very satisfied!

    IBUYPOWER Game PC

    The PC comes with a good basic setup for gaming; however there are issues getting all the display ports to actual work. currently using 2 displays instead of the 3 or 4 I wanted. There is no technical data on the PC so really don't know what all is inside. Would have to hunt on the IBUY's web site which wont be exact since this is a prebuilt. Main monitor goes black for about 10 seconds every time I start a game. Very little overall memory but again little hesitant to try and upgrade. However the tower has plenty of room. If your able you could build this PC for a lot less or get a lot more PC for the money. All said and done the monitor and PC was almost $2,600.00

    This is a great computer I have had it for a little while and have played tons of games on it. It eats pretty much everything I throw at it I have it hooked up to a 4K tv and it generally gets about 60+ FPS on most games at max settings. I have built computers for a long time but when you can buy a prebuilt for this price there’s really no reason to scour for the components yourself would definitely recommend this to any gamers both twitchers and casual!

    ipower BB953 RTX 2080

    I purchased my first computer game on Friday 4/12/2019. It was $1999 and on sales $500 off. I paid $1499. Ipower BB953 with RTX 2080. It's fast and easy setup. I added the Samsung EVO 970 plus M.2. The only disappointed that I asked the salesperson. The display show a "Gigabyte RTX video card. When I opened is a Zotac gaming. Also the keyboard and mouse wire are little too short. It would be nice if it longer. I would expect a backup window with the key product code. But I didn't see it? I didn't have time to build one. Maybe my next one I will. Overall, the desktop is very fast. Takes about 15 seconds to boot up with my pin entered.

    An awesome PC if you don't want to build your own. Right out of the box, it was easy to set up and it looked beautiful once you get it turned on. I got it while it was on sale, so it was a great deal for me. What caught my eye for the price was the RTX 2080 video card. Quick and simple, if you are looking to play the current games out right now and don't want to go through the hassle of building a PC, then this is great "starting gaming PC" for you. This is also a great gift for any gamer friend or relative of yours. I am happy with my purchase. I give it a 5 star for the price I got it at and it's a solid build for what is intended for.

    Let me start with yes, internally... This things a monster. I'll admit the power is amazing. It's very silent. Very fast. But that's it. I've never encountered so many God forsaken blue screen of deaths before with any machine pre built or otherwise. I've only had this thing less than two months and the system has crashed without an explanation 3 times already. Literally. Checking a website, crash. Using discord to talk to friends, crash. Watching a video, you guessed it, crashed. I'm less than a crash away from saying eff it and returning this hunk of junk for something else that actually works as intended.

    Great Computer, deceptive packaging

    I bought this computer a week before Black Friday. The box claims that it contains an Nvidia 2080 with 11GB, which only the RTX 2080ti has. This is deceptive since it actually only has 8GB and contains only a RTX 2080, which is a much cheaper graphic card ($500 less). This means that the $2,000 cost for this computer is not actually that great. When I called the manufacturer, they were rude and told me that if I didn’t like it that I could always return the computer to Best Buy. So when a found a very similar computer from HP on sale on Black Friday for $500 less, that is exactly what I did. I returned the computer to Best Buy.

    So, kinda new to PC gaming but I've been playing on all the consoles for many years. Pretty much every game I run through this PC (Battlefield 5, AC Odyssey, Far Cry 5, Mass Effect Andromeda,etc.) runs on mostly ultra settings at a very stable 60 FPS with some minor in-game settings tweaks. (I turn down shadows and bloom effects and such just as a personal preference) Only things I have to say against it are that the mouse and keyboard aren't to my liking and the lack of a disc reader sucks, but most of the games I buy are downloads from Steam or Origins anyway, so it's not that big of a deal.

    The reason I bought this pc was for the price it was on sale for, and the components in it. Was disappointed when I got my first one, couldn't do anything at the home screen. Took it back to Best buy and they had a geek squad agent take a look. It wasnt able to be fixed by them. They quickly offered to replace my PC, and after waiting for about a week I picked up my new one. So far no issues with this one, time will tell. Comes with a free gift inside to redeem when purchased. My 3 stars are for the first PC being inoperable. Will change score when I have had more time with this pc.

    What I want in a tower computer

    Simple answer. Turn it on and it is on. Run multiple instances of a few MMO games? This machine does not seem to even notice. I have spent hours playing with the case lights and then setting the whole thing to music. That is maybe the only downside. I can't set the individual lights to different colours or to have them change over time. But that is software by another company. Not a hardware issue. And this machine takes on everything I have thrown at it and asked for more. I doubt you will regret having this machine in your home.

    So after failing to play any game whatsoever on my old rig, I decided to spend this years tax money on a whole new setup. I went with the best of the best that Best Buy offered, also they had a deal on the system. I went from a GT 640 to an RTX 2080. I also splurged and got a Dell 27 inch monitor with G sync support to get all I can get out of this thing. I am in process of installing games as we speak. Although I already know the power of this unit thanks to the display unit they had set up to game on in Best Buy. If you have an older pc, I recommend seeing whats new because things have really advanced!
