I've decided I want to buy an iBuyPower pc from walmart, they have a build your own option.

What do you guys think? Has anyone ordered from them before? I plan on mostly just playing Diablo III buy maybe other games too.

I see a processor but no Motherboard? ... Also you'll still need a monitor adding it to $900, not unless you already have one. Personally I'd buy separate parts and have a local PC shop build it for me, it'd be cheaper. ~_~ BUT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THAT. It looks good, probably will want to upgrade your graphics card in the up coming months.

Where is your power supply? Does it come with the case?

  • I second this. Only a 6870 would destroy the 7770 for $10 more and actually less with rebates.

    Oh, and give him the original case for no change in your price.

    Also OP, you see the parts it takes to build one... Just screw those 7-8 parts together and install the OS. Easier than any legos set I've ever put together. And with youtube and Tom's you should definitely have no problem.

    klancenet? Is there a reason you need to buy from WalMart? Do you not feel capable of building your own computer? For $799 you can get a better system.

    Ok, ok, I've been worn down and I'm going to be building my own after hearing "why don't you just build your own" about 20 or so times.

    Do you guys recommend any certain tutorials out there that are better than others?

    There's a fine tutorial linked right here in the sticky at the top of the forum.

    Alternatively, why would you not buy ibuypower direct from ibuypower? no walmart mark up that way. Just a thought :)  Otherwise, the remainder of the posts said it perfectly.
