    Today was possibly the most exciting yet the best day of my 2019 year, and it's crazy to think that I just bought this Pre-Built today for my Birthday, This MONSTER of a PC can handle up to any and I mean ANY AAA games I throw at it without fail, it left me ecstatic with shock of just how good the build quality was, easy to set up and get going right out the box, it was an amazing first experience, outstanding results, a HUGE worth it buy for me, worth every single tax :) [Very Impressed]

    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.

    Very good PC.

    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.

    Good parts in PC, some problems

    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.

    I had my ibuypower system set up in minutes with no problem. That says a lot! I still get intimidated by new tech at times. I am 66 years old, and I had been struggling recording, rendering and uploading training videos on my laptop. It often took me 3 hours to render or upload each video in a long list of videos that needed done with a deadline quickly approaching. Within an hour, I was up and running, and the same video that took 2.5 hour to render earlier was finished and ready to upload in under 10 minutes! IBUYPOWER - you ROCKED my world!

    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!

    iBuyPower 953 - VeryGood

    I purchased the iBuyPower PC model #BB953 recently while on sale. The unit is loaded with an Intel i7 8th gen CPU and an Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU with liquid cooling. The price was competitive with custom builds. The unit a powerful and out runs Virtual Reality and my Steam games much better than my previous computer. The only reason for giving 4 stars over 5 is that I seem to have a problem with no adjustability in the sound volume and the bundle was supposed to come with downloads for Call of Duty, Anthem, and Battlefield V however the receipt only had a code for Call of Duty.

    I returned the OMEN Obelisk computer for this one after having graphical problems with the omen. 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 especially since I got it on sale. In the end, the setup was quick and easy. I probably need to bump up the speed on my internet speed to keep up. I did utilize the mouse and keyboard that come with this PC works wonders.

    Great computer for game lovers

    I bought my new gaming computer about two weeks ago. As a game lover, this computer is one of THE Best computers. I had MSI gaming laptop with gtx 1070 GPU and from my experience, RTX 2080 is way better in quality. The cooling systems work perfectly fine and the computer is not noisy at all since it is cooled by water. When it was first delivered, it was well packaged with no damage at all. I am really satisfied with my computer and having no problems.

    Was walking the computer area at my local Best Buy when I saw this silly blinking-light tower on the shelf with the gaming peripherals. I stopped to look and I was surprised at the listed specs for the system. Did some quick research and found the parts included for the price were close to what it would have cost to build new from scratch. Then it went on sale for $200 off and I couldn't resist. Since purchasing, I have upgraded the power supply, added a 512 Gb SSD for a boot drive and a 2TB platter drive for storage. I bought a 2k 144Hz G-Sync monitor on Black Friday so this system and the monitor are a perfect match.

    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.

    This machine is definitely an overkill for what we need right now but we are planning on using a VR headset in the future so this will be be more than adequate. Haven’t tested it with heavy games yet but so far, it’s running really smoothly and much faster than our previous pc when multitasking and streaming. For the components it has, it’s absolutely a great buy. I just wish it has a dvd player and at least 1 sd card slot but the external ones are cheap so not a big deal. Hopefully it lasts us a long time since we bought this to future proof our system. But, so far, so good.

    I did much research and had some qualms about iBuyPower/CyberPower computers. Was going to build my own. Found this on sale and amazingly in stock and configured the way I would have built it basically. All brand name components. Tech support was fine and helpful (I asked for a list of the actual components), and he had to cut and paste each into an email that he promptly sent to me about ten minutes after the call ended. Plus to be safe I bought a 3yr Geek Squad. Much less stressful than troubleshooting a DIY. Plus it lights up multicolored LED's all over the freakin' place, which I love!

    Received the same system from amazon and the motherboard and graphics card were destroyed on arrival (Sent right back). This system arrived ready to go and a happy install. Currently running and no issues within the first 5 hours with setup (Finally upgrading from windows 7). Sick of building my own systems and wanted to try checking out a pre-built system to see how it goes for the future. Avoid amazon's shipping and get a better deal from Amazon if you have the option! Got $400 off and 3 free games from Best Buy compared to nothing from Amazon for the same system. Check it out!

    Absolute Beast for the Price.

    I have used this desktop extensively so far and I must say that it is a beast for the price. The integrated Audio is sub par but everything else considered, it is a great buy. It overclocks quite well but as with almost all 8700k processors, could benefit from a delidding or better thermal interface material between the die and the heat spreader as well as the heat spreader and the cooling solution. The case is okay and doesnt seem like a main price point, though a bit better quality would have been appreciated.

    This computer is the complete package. The pricing was excellent considering the 2080ti is the latest and greatest Graphics card on the market. My previous computer I had a 1080ti founders edition graphics card, I didn't think there would be a BIG difference between the 1080 and 2080 but it's noticeable with the games I play. For example when I play X-Plane 11 I am showing no less than 35-40 frames per second with no tweaks/overclocking. I would recommend this purchase to anyone! Great buy at BEST BUY!!!!!!!!!!!

    I ordered the PC online on a Sunday, and it was delivered to my door on Tuesday, so I was happy about that. When the computer was delivered, everything was packaged securely, including the foam inside the computer case to keep components from shifting during deliver. It took minutes to unpack and set up. The performance is outstanding with a top of the line GPU, 16G of memory, which is plenty, 8th gen i7, etc. I'm the type of guy who spends the first few days playing, analyzing, and benchmarking, and so far, I couldn't be happier.

    This is my second BB953. The first one I bought had a problem with the RTX 2080. I got the BSOD and green artifacting all over my monitor. Exchanged it for a new one and so far it’s been great. I’ve had it for nearly 2 weeks now and all I can say is wow. This thing destroys anything you throw at it with FPS always well above 100. I hit just under 300 FPS in CS:GO, 100+ in Rainbow 6 Seige and nearly 200 in Overwatch all at Ultra settings might I add. Despite the fact that some of the 2080s and 2080 ti’s are failing I wouldn’t let this deter you from buying it.

    This PC is exactly what you would expect if shopping by components as I did. No surprises. I only have two minor comments. I wouldn't call them complaints. The keyboard and mouse are about as basic and low quality as you can get, but chances are at the price point of this PC you will be buying higher quality to go along with anyway. Also if you are a person that is picky about organized wiring, although not visible, the hidden wiring was a mess. Not a big deal to me, as I don't mind organizing them to my standards.
