Don't buy from them, build your own and save money. Most their comps come dead when you get them.

my friend has had one for a couple of years, and its worked for the most part. They're good computers except that he ordered maxtor hard drives in it. Don't do that, get whatever western digital drives they offer.

They wont even boot up. Because they didnt wire the power switches right, or the mobo is shorted out. A lot of things could be the cause. Or maybe the PSU is shot. You better off building your own.

A girl down the hall from me at college ordered a pc from there and the network drivers that they installed and the ones that came on the included CD were wrong.

I ordered from there. It came with the bay door broken but they sent a replacement free of charge. Pretty good though.

i doubt those people are professionals (ibuypower people)

the only good site to build your own computer IMO is www.monarchcomputer.com (it might be www.monarchcomputers.com)

i'd only use them
