Why iBUYPOWER Rocks!

When my thrice rebuilt frankencomputer just wouldn’t cut it anymore I knew it was time to find a new desktop online.  In the past I have had a horrible time trying to find a good computer.  Most stores both physical and online rip you off for a pre-assembled computer.  Granted, you could build it yourself but then you get into the impossible task of making sure each and every component is compatible with one another.

Since I don’t have time to spend fiddling around with computer components and ripping out my own hair I turned to a good friend.  I knew Alex would be able to help me out since… well he’s a genius and a gamer.  I asked him “Where can I find an amazing computer where I can run Skyrim with everything maxed out but not break the bank?”  He turned me on to iBUYPOWER.

Shortly after this NERD TREK took on PAX Prime 2011 like Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.  iBUYPOWER had a booth where we met with Product Manager George Yang to talk about their computers.  After this NERD TREK conducted a Q&A with iBUYPOWER Marketing Manager Ricky Lee.  You can read all of that good stuff here.

So I began investigating the iBUYPOWER product line and constructing numerous incarnations of my ultimate gaming rig with their online computer customization tool.  Although this tool is absolutely amazing there are so many options, designing the best PC within your budget can be a daunting task.  Luckily George Yang stepped in an helped me out.  He went through all the available components and pieced together the best gaming rig within my budget and outfitted it with numerous delicious upgrades.  iBUYPOWER usually throws in some free games so I got a couple free downloads on STEAM of some pretty decent new titles.  After George Yang perfected the PC and I made a few minor alterations they processed my payment and my computer was on it’s way.

Over the next couple days I received numerous emails detailing every step of my computer’s path from parts to arrival.  I was told when the computer was being assembled, tested, double checked, software loaded, final tests, packed, shipped, and estimated arrival.  It was AMAZING!  I have never had such expedited service with meticulous details every step of the way.  There was never a question as to how long I would wait.  I knew the day and even the time my computer would arrive at my doorstep.  I of course could not wait and had to drive to the local FEDEX shipping center to get my PC early.

George Yang and the rest of the iBUYPOWER staff did a bang up job and will continue to receive my business in the future.  This article is my way of saying thanks for a job well done.  Oh yes, and Skyrim looks PHENOMENAL on this rig with everything cranked to max!

If you’re looking to build your own PC you can use the customization tool, email, chat or call iBUYPOWER.  If you just need a system pre-built and ready to rock you can opt for that route as well.  Their customer service is unmatched as is the quality of product you get for your dollar.
