    my last computer build was back in June 2011, I've always built my own system. I stumbled upon this deal randomly and was blown away for the price and spec. This pre-built PC saved me the trouble of sourcing parts and the time to build. on top of that, it came pre-loaded with windows, I honestly couldn't ask for more. I ran into minor hiccups, (the water cooling power was left disconnected - easy fix. the supplied mouse was DOA, best buy took care of that. besides the minor hiccups, the system works flawless and no complaints.

    This is my second IBUYPower computer since 1st one worked so well for games. I wanted a bigger SSD and this one fit the bill nicely. I haven't played games on it yet but downloading is a breeze. The only thing I didn't like about it so far is when I ordered it, it stated it was a 750 watt power supply. When I got it and checked it out, turns out it is only a 650 watt power supply. That seems to be sufficient so far but IBUYPower should not say something is there that isn't. Overall, seems to be a great computer.

    I spent the money on this PC when it was on sale for 1600 in store and it was easily one of the best purchases I've ever made. Even if it was full price I would have saved up to get it because I can do anything via stream, game, record, create, and much more with ease. The best part is that everything is still easily upgradeable to build a monster of a PC for maximum performance.

    If you are looking for a higher end gaming desktop that is pre built this is one of the best. I've done a lot if research before buying this model and it is worth it. Some bugs when i fired it up but nothing Google couldn't help me fix. Runs lots of games at max with 60-100 fps. Easy 1 click overclocking if you want to boost your cpu and the bios is surprisingly intuitive.

    ALMOST Perfect

    This computer is lightning fast, easy to set up, and is a monster for both gaming and productivity. I mostly use this for video editing and graphic design, and it handles Adobe Creative Cloud like a dream. Gaming is buttery smooth as well. I didn't give this computer a perfect score because the audio ports are odd. They do not support black + yellow inputs, and therefore my 5.1 Logitech system is not compatible, nor are the wide array of computer speakers that use these jacks. I believe ibuypower expects the user to use gaming headphones for audio.

    I primarily use this PC for gaming/streaming and it handles both at the same time with ease. I was fortunate enough to have noticed that this PC went on sale for $1499 shortly after I bought it, so I was able to get some money back. That said, I still think this unit is worth $1799. As most PC's though, you will want to buy a separate keyboard and mouse, as the ones included are lackluster at best. I have been using this PC since March 2019 and I love it so far.

    Best PC I've had ever

    I went into bestbuy knowing exactly what type of PC I wanted, but unsure of what pc to purchase. I asked the people from Bestbuy to help me find a suitable PC for my needs. Man, my expectations were low, but what I got was so much better and impressive than I'd ever imagined. I can play all of my regular games like Destiny2 and Overwatch to its maximum capacity and still hit FPS that blew my last computer out of the water. This is definitely a bang for your buck kind of PC. I'd recommend this build to any of my gaming friends.

    Best bang for the buck on the market

    Purchased during one of Best Buy's Deals of the Day for $1499. This PC is the absolute best bang for your gaming buck. The RTX 2080 (mine was an MSI RTX 2080 Ventus) is an absolute beast and chews up anything I throw at it at max settings at 2K. The PC does get pretty hot, but it's pretty easy to manage with a couple extra case fans (and some 4-pin splitters). I wish there were more USB ports, but that's easily rectified with a USB hub. Looks great, is very quiet and is blazing fast.

    I've been on a gaming laptop for as long as I can remember, so when I decided to finally make the switch to a gaming desktop I decided to go for a build that's strong yet affordable. This desktop in particular was a perfect fit! This desktop is an absolute beast. It is able to run my games on the max possible settings, without even overheating thanks to its' liquid cooling system. The fact that it came with a fairly competent keyboard as well as a mouse is a bonus.

    Purchased this PC solely for gaming, primarily X Plane 11, in order to obtain the max graphics settings possible while maintaining high FPS. Out of the box the PC was ready to run. I almost felt I was missing something as set-up was so quick and effortless. There were a few driver updates, but they were optional and not required. I do recommend downloading the MSI Afterburner software to tweak your graphics card and settings. High end components for a great price!

    When I got this computer home, I was concerned about the high idle temperatures (55° C). I shot IBuyPower an email and did some research online to discover that this was within normal temperatures for this card. It doesn't get much hotter even under load. Many other reviews on here go into details about the components and features, so I won't repeat any of that, I will say that while this computer doesn't come with bloatware, Windows 10 continues to add a lot of stuff you might want to uninstall after powering it on the first time.

    So far this iBuypower BB953 has exceeded my expectations. The graphics are spectacular and I have not had any issues the computer. I consider the mouse and keyboard to be subpar and have replaced them. I have added a second SSD card and a 6tb WD black hard drive for my video editing. I don't think you can go wrong if you decided to purchase this system. I researched computers for weeks and considered computers in the 4 to 5k range and then I just decided to try this ibuypower and am very happy so far.

    Great upgrade from my 4yr old Asus PC. Installed passmark software and scored in the 98 percentile. Ran Fortnite on max settings and played at the low end of 200 fps. Installed was a breeze, Fast boot times, Quite running, water cooled CPU. Ran a bunch of older games on this as well with max settings. Brings the old games to new life with the better graphics.

    I've never had a machine that I could literally max out all the settings but this machine gives me that chance. I've only been able to try Anthem and Battlefiend V on it so far and both look and run amazing. The RGB lights are great and the glass panel has weight and doesn't feel cheap but instead very high quality. I purchased this on sale for $300 off and that is one of the best computer deals I've seen for the shear amount of hardware that is provided.

    This is my first gaming computer and overall I am very pleased with it. I am only playing a couple of games on it at the moment and has been great. Graphics are awesome. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because one game in particular ( Division 2) seems to make it get really warm after about an hour of play. This can be fixed by adding another fan I hope. I would say if you have the time and knowledge just build your own. You might save a little cash.

    I bought this computer after many failed computer without a SSD hard Drive. I set the computer up within an hour of opening the box. The computer did not all of the extra programs on it like other brands. The computer boots up in less than 10 seconds. I was streaming Pandora, downloading 4 large programs and working on Office documents all while under 50% of memory. I am planning on purchasing another computer for my husband who is a gamer.

    This is my first gaming PC purchase ever, I was back and fourth wanting to build one or buy one pre built desided to go with this one because its ready to go right out of the box and can pretty much handle whatever you throw at it without needing to upgrade it, in this industry you get what you pay for if you go cheap don't expect the best results.. Very happy with my purchase very fast PC like I was expecting it to be. On top of all this I got it on sale for 1699.99!!!!!

    Great PC build for the price. I was set to go and buy all of the components I needed for PC build, but once I came across this I decided that for the price I would just save myself the time and get this instead. All the latest high end components for under 2k. I was sold. The only drawback/frustration I've found is that it's advertised with customizable lighting. Mine is set to a Red default, and I've seen nothing on the system itself - or within any of the included documentation on changing the color.

    My first gaming pc and I couldn't be happier. If you don't want to deal with the complications of building your own pc, you can't go wrong with this. I got this one on sale so it was a no brainer. I'm running Metro: Exodus, Anthem, Battlefield V, Dying Light, Euro Truck Sim without any issues. (not at the same time of course) Yes it was a bit pricey but it was worth every penny. Highly recommend to anyone who's looking to get into pc gaming and even veterans.

    Was in the market for a new gaming computer. Have had laptops in the past, but been researching the new gaming computers. This computer has everything that I had been looking for and more. I was concerned with the original (1) intake fan and (1) exhaust fan, so I replaced the (1) intake fan with (3) RGB fans. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the purchase. Old and new games run much faster, and with the 2080 graphics card it really brings thing to life.
