Another iBuypower VS Newegg

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Newegg appears to have the lead with ~400$. This is enough for a nice water cooling loop or better case. I included a keyboard in mouse which is of better quality than ibuypower's tongue.gif.

STAY AWAY FROM IBUYPOWER~~!! I get more horror stories here in my shop from people with those machines than I do with Dell's, AND THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING.

I doubt anyone on OCN would vote for the iBuyPower over a custom build...
At long last...

I don't know why you should go there in the first place. I made this thread simply because other people claim that it's cheaper than newegg. Clearly it isn't and they probably get used/open boxed items from the manufacturers in order to keep costs down or something

Screw I buy power, if you have any problem good luck with their customer service helping you out. I've only heard bad things about them over the years.

Then you should add that to your first post.

My friend just got a computer from there. Very nice build, great quality, but $125 more than if he would have bought the parts off of Newegg.

I like the thrill of building my own computer, but he's not too capable of that.
So I guess that $125 was his assembly fee.

Ive never heard people claim that ibuypower is cheaper than newegg. I would guess ibuypower is cheaper for gaming systems than most other OEM's, but beating newegg.com would be near impossible. They would have to charge nothing for labor.

Assuming they get discounts from manufacturers, they probably made at least 1/3'd of the total price

ibuypower just like dell,hp,sony ext... use cutom parts or parts with different model names but simular parts that are built cheap to make it sem like a good deal.
