they are definitely reliable... no computer you buy prebuilt or make yourself will have a virus on it when you first boot it up...

so yes, ibuypower is good!

It's really not hard to build a computer. All you need is a standard philips screw driver, your eyes, and some common sense. (like don't build it on the carpet or where there's static buildup, don't try and put screws somewhere they don't fit, and stuff like that). Oh and you'll need some money. Do you think you might want to give building a computer a shot? We'll all help you out.

My father in law has been building computers for years. When he decided it was time for a new system, he decided to get a pre-built as he didn't have the time nor inclination to put together a computer. He ordered one from iBUYPOWER. It's a very nice computer. It's well built and performs great. He's very happy with it and their customer service.

ok heres the full laydown of this thread... you have 2 choices

buy from ibuypower (they are reliable, good customer service, etc.)

OR you spend a bit of time, and pick out your parts as YOU want, and not just the selection ibuypower has, learn a thing or two about computers, and have a ton of fun.... also save yourself a bit of cash as well

now, i went the second route when deciding i wanted a gaming computer.... and its been really fun just shopping around and learning stuff... you will probably have this same experience

ask your dad, you guys can do it as a summer project.... don't be afraid! i asked my dad about it, and hes all into it as much as i am! it will be tons of fun somekid.... i know it =]

plus, these great guys here will help you with ANYTHING you need...trust me!
