Cyberpower or IBuyPower? - Page 4

post #31 of 60
I got my sig rig from cyberpowerpc.com. Flame me if you want for it. I've built many PC's, and the only reason i ordered it was cause i have a dog that won't let me do anything but pay attention to her while i'm home. Anyways, i got it home from fedex, plugged it in, and nothing. no power, no lights, nothing. So i tore the whole thing down, incl removing the psu, visually inspected it, and installed my HSF, plugged it back in, and still nothing.

Then i inspected the power cord they gave me, and saw that it was the totally wrong one. Took the one out of my old computer, and it fired right up. I don't know how they were able to do that, especially after QCing it for 4 days!

Suffice it to say, i'm never going to do anything but build my own, as i'm definitley not affraid of it, and i'm never going to buy or recommend them to anyone. Ever.

No offense ment, but would it really hurt the dog to lock it in a room for the 30 minutes it takes to build a computer? Its just that... that seems like a real wierd reason not to build a computer and instead buy a really crappy computer brand that probably overcharged.. I personally hate dogs that won't listen and if a dog wouldnt sit when im doing something i'd probably get rid of it, if it was to old to train

($500+ for ram i bought for $120)

haha of COURSE when you post here everyone is going to say build your own... and I say the same. Only because you can choose EVERY part (not a limited list like at cyber or ibuy) and make sure they are the parts you want. knowledge is power. you'll be much happier even though it really does require more work. its a tradeoff.
You bought a E8400 and a 8800GTS (and all the other parts) 4 years ago? Man you must really have connections! lol

I agree with the DIY advice. I will also add, I bet if you listed the components of the ibuypower PC you are interested in, members here could find them all (equal or better) for less money. I love newegg, but if you do a little surfing and have some patience, the deals are out there. Don't be afraid of MIR or to go used either.

The total price of a fresh newegg build and a CyberPower built with virtually identical parts is about the same, but as I have said, the discount I will get is a big + for buying from the likes of CyberPower. From what I've heard though, either CyberPower or IBuyPower are not reliable choices. Oh well, love the feel of silicon in my hands anyway. Thanks again everyone.
Hate to sound like a broken record, but I've said that I have no prob. building a computer. In fact, I prefer that I build it myself. Cash is the only concern.

What, exactly, is this discount anyways? How much are we talking about and what do you have to spend? That may change some opinions. If you could get something really cheap and have to swap a PSU or something down the road. It may well be worth it for the hardware alone.

Well, in that case, I would say it is worth going to a company. See if you can get something from CD. You could get a really swwet set-up from him with all hand picked items.

So, which is better? If either is that bad, I will go newegg. Thanks.
They both are epic failures. You should build your own or ask someone who knows how to make one to help you (and CyberDruid [or CD as said above would be the best choice because hes a one man company and he knows his stuff).
