Thanks for your help everyone. Come back tomorrow and see if I have any other views on this situation.

I help my Gaming Community build PC's. I had a friend try to get one from them and returned 3 of them in a row because they took a beating when being shipped. I refuse to even mention them when a friend is looking to buy new. That was also over 1 1/2 years ago.

I built a PC from them and I was extremely satisfied with it. Their customer service is phenomenal as well!

The board they sent me was kind of crappy, and the NIC + Sound cards died, so they sent me new ones, and they were pretty good ones too! Also, my case fan stopped working and they sent me a new one.

Their tech support is also very nice to work with.

I highly recommend them.

I have to say, my sig-rig originated as a Ibuypower. I had won the Pc in a raffle and though it was a pretty good computer, after a year i the motherboard died. I did not know why it did, but i replaced it and the cheap psu myself and went from there. The computer was a decent build but could have been better if i had the choice in the parts given to me(hey for free cant complain though). If you can pick your motherboard and psu in this build, i would definately go for it especially if you dont have the knowledge or time to build your own.

The hp you listed seemed like a decent build but the motherboard is probably cheap and is definately locked so no overclocking. Also, does it include a videocard or just onboard video? If you wanna game your gonna need a dedicated videocard.

There are several different motherboards available when selecting on iBUYPOWER. The HP though was a dedicated GPU. The thing though is that HP has several different models that can be configured very similar or with drawbacks on them and good things for different models.

If I'm not mistaken, HP uses proprietary motherboards. I'd go CyberpowerPC, iBuyPower, or custom build.

Before I got into building my own the last prebuild I had was from ibuypower. I really liked it and used to for probably 5 years, just upgraded the graphics card occasionally. Actually still use it as a 2nd rig for browsing the net and stuff like that. My brother has bought 2 rigs from them and never had an issue either.

I fixed an IBuyPower and this is what was wrong.

1. Horrible part choices
2. Logisy power supply (This is what exploded and how I got involved)
3. Stock cooling
4. Cables were a mess
5. The case was probably the worst case I ever worked with, how anyone could pick this hunk of junk was beyond me.

Yeah but I am choosing the parts. Look at my post from about 2 minutes ago.
