When I first saw another site selling gaming computers, my first thought was to file iBuyPower away as just another computer manufacture. But as I read user testimonials and tech bloggers’ iBuyPower reviews, however, I was wrong. The computers are definitely nice, with some of the most competitive prices for desktop setups.
The cases are clean, sleek, and stunning. For buyers looking for some brighter aesthetic, it might be a tough find, however you’ll find computers such as the Chimera 4 SE offering plenty of flair (and with three fans, plus a pre-factory set 10% overclock, who could complain?).
The selection is definitely wide on the cases, ranging from the sharp, nearly-intimidating looks of the Professional Series, all the way to the futuristic looking Revolt, which offers a chassis that optimizes ambient air flow direction to sensitive parts which got great reviews in many places.
Chimera 4 SE : Affordable but powerful
These things are not only built for obvious style, but it’s the guts of these machines that are truly amazing. The cheapest Chimera 4 SE at the time of writing this is offered for a base price of $949.00; not a bad deal at all for the starting price of a good gaming rig.
The fact it comes with a 120mm liquid cooling system, and an AMD FX-6300 CPU. Now, personally I would drop in a NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Black for $1153.00, which I’ve seen run for as much as $1400.00 else, and that’s factory set, no overclock.
Erebus GT-V3 : Premium iBuyPower computer
For the premium buyers, the Erebus GT-V3 is a must have, as it already comes with a 30% overclock rating. A nice bonus is no matter the price, all gaming computers through iBuyPower come with a Turtle Beach Z1 Headset, which is a must-have, whether gaming, and needing a mic for multiplayer, or simply wanting to listen to music on your laptop at school.
Truth be told these machines are much more than just built for gaming. With the variety of CPUs and GPUs made available, iBuyPower offers plenty of setups for anything from research computers, art stations, gaming rigs, and Crypto miners. The Valkyrie CZ-27 alone seems to be the go-to for students and business people, with a near perfect mixture of quality, computing power, stylishness, and price.
The website boasts an easy-to-navigate webpage, and makes the process of customizing your perfect rig as easy as scrolling through the list and clicking: all the information is presented right in front of you for every option, ensuring you don’t have to remember each option to compare and decide what fits your lifestyle the best.
The computers offered at iBuyPower are definitely not what you’d find from companies such as HP or Toshiba, and their cases are definitely on-par, if not better than Dell’s Alienware, due to their increased focus on functionality merged with style.
Professional Series : iBuyPower review
A bonus with iBuyPower is that there are options for the professional buyer, with the Professional Series looking perfect in any office building, with the computing power of a premium gaming machine. The last thing any business person wants is everyone focusing on a flashing case, full of lights, which makes the Professional Series a fantastic, low-tone choice.
All in all, the machines are well built, and soundly designed. The website is a definite must-see, and the machines a must-use.
