Have you even seen their products?


If you want to build your own computer, then buy the prebuilt, break it down, and rebuild it.

hey i just built a system for my girlfriend too. I just waited for stuff to go on sale, looked around on the internet and even pieced some parts out of my rig...gave up an 8800gt, 4gb of ram, and a dvd drive...got a board from evga's bstock stuff, and i found a c2q q8300 for 90 bucks bran new...also gave her my cnps 9700, and bought the dokker case for 60 bucks...grand total of, 180....oh also gave her one of my extra 250gb hdd...

it's a freakin fast system for what she does...if you keep looking around you can find stuff for great prices...

as far as your comparison goes...the ibuypower rig is good, but it won't have better ram, brand of video card you like, etc...they save money on things like that...that's not to knock them but to qualify where the decrease in price comes from...

if you wanna build your girl a solid rig, do it yourself from parts you find, she'll appreciate it, I'm sure.

also, the warranty.. what happens if your psu/mobo fries?
post #26 of 35
I always buy from Newegg and love them. Now that being said if I can get the same thing cheaper somewhere else don't think for a minute that I wont. Companies have no loyalties to the customer and if you can get it cheaper somewhere else by all means do so.On a different note, before I started building my own rigs I purchased 1 from Ibuyower. Was about 7 years ago but it was a really good PC and I still have it.

Yah for me all the fun is in the build, once I'm done I'm just staring at the same old windows desktop.

I instantly get the itch to go start part hunting again.

Got a sandy bridge cpu and mobo last weekend and just ordered an htpc for the bedroom today

Came into some money though as I sold some stuff.

GENIUS! The satisfaction of buying your computer for cheap and building one at the same time.

I love building my own pc's, I've worked in PC shops back in the '90's and even worked for HP for a while. I would never buy a pre-built desktop for myself.
That being said, do NOT build your gf a computer, unless she specifically asks you to build her one (and even then...), otherwise it's going to be your fault every time the computer or the software has the slightest hiccup.
You can always fix the pre-built system and come out a hero, or if she's really upset, play dumb and point her towards tech support...

3 year warranty through IBP for all components, or is it 1 year with a 3 year extended.
