    Huge bank for the buck

    While I must admit it was not my desired PC when I went into Best Buy to look, but this well beat the price of my own build plans. Took it home and have been enjoying it for little while now. I haven't pushed to see what limits strain this PC, though it has held well to for every game I have so far at max graphic settings. Once get chance to upgrade monitors, I can't wait to see what things look like. While I will eventually put my own parts in, I see no reason to change anything anytime soon.

    It runs fast and has excellent graphics. Doesn’t get bait with the really nice water cooled processor. There is room for expansion too. Being able to change the lights it’s nice. And they can be changed in each zone to a different color, depending on your mood or attitude. I am going to try and find cabling to add another SSD. It has the data connection but couldn’t find the power connector. The cable management is truest great. It is possible that it’s there but I didn’t take anything apart to find it. This is really a great machine.

    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.

    Unpacked everything and set up the pc without major incident. The LED strip was hanging inside the case but still had enough glue to attach it back to the case where it is supposed to go. The seller said it came with a game bundle, but the master code to download the game was not on the receipt so now I have to contact customer support at Best Buy... Also, I've been trying to get online support from ibuypower for over 20 minutes because the LEDs aren't being recognized by the computer.... this is sad beyond words for a $2,000 gaming pc....

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    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.

    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.

    A very fast and reliable computer that has one of the newest graphics cards to keep anyone playing for a while, the built in LED lights are also a cool touch. This model does not come with an LED remote, though, so you’ll have to manually go into the program to change it. One thing I’d like to note is that the instructions for setting up the computer for the first time are a tad bit different but it was not hard to work around the differences in the product or the manual.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Powerful Gaming Rig

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great Everything. I purchased this due to my other computer stopped working. I have had this for a week and am in love with it. Runs all the games I play with ease (Arma3, Squad, Rust, some other high resolution games). I don't have any problems with it and it was super simple to start up and get to gaming. Quite and a little bit bigger than the one I had previously. Love the RGB and goes great with my keyboard and mouse that also light up.

    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!

    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.

    This computer is amazing. It has all the high end things you want when you build your own (mainly gpu and cpu). People will say they skimp on the motherboard, ram, and power supply, but I have researched all of them and found that I couldn't even build the system myself for this price. The computer is fast enough to run 4k games on ultra settings at 120 fps. I also run a samsung odyssey+ vr headset with no lag at all. It's a great value and the gaming experience can't be beat.

    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.
