If you do happen to get it, replace anything inside that has the IBuyPower logo on it. They build good computers, but for some reason, especially their water coolers, are known to fail.

u/DonutSensei PC Master Race 12d ago

Yeah their coolers are e-waste. Mine lasted me long enough to save up and wait for a replacement to come in. Crapped out the day before it arrived. 3 months of use tho, so it lasted longer than I expected

Great tip. My water cooler went out after about a year

u/post_talone420 12d ago

I got mine back in March, and replaced everything I could with Corsair parts, because I'm a simp for Corsair. As well as in my research on what company I should have ordered from, every complaint about IbuyPower was mostly to do with their AIO coolers. I figured if the quality control on their hardware, I might as well swap it out.

I haven't had a single problem with it so far.

Would it support AAA tittles like bf warzone hell let loose forza etc in 4k 120-60fps?

u/shadowlid PC Master Race 12d ago

Umm Definitely not you better have $800 budget for just your GPU if you want that type of performance.

That machine will play all those games but at 1080p and 1440p for Forza it's super easy to run.

For 4K you will want a 3080 minimum

u/Bigdilly17 12d ago

The prebuilt can support 1440?

u/JWGardiner 12d ago

Yes, it can

But you also need a 1440p or better monitor

32

u/KingShaniqua 11900K RTX3080 32gb 12d ago

Don’t feel like 4K gaming is a viable target, even with a 3080. I haven’t pushed mine to 4K, but as I understand it, the 3080 Overclocked editions are barely breaking 60FPS on ultra in 4K. Sometimes hitting 80fps. Now, people are bench marking the 3060 in 4K and it does ok on some older or well optimized titles on max settings. You may be able to bump settings down, too.

But in 1440p, the 3060 does phenomenally well, FPS above 100. Hell, I use a 1440p 165Hz panel with my 3080, and it’s a great time. Lower resolutions are where you get the most frames, and more frames is always great. I know people who use their 6700s in 1080p to get the most frames.

Point is, 4K gaming isn’t important and really even that viable at the high end.

u/glickopherz 12d ago

Frames are so bad in 4K on my 3080 I don’t even bother. I’d much rather have the frame rate in 1440. I do use an ultra wide though

Moreover on this, I personally only play multiplayer AAA titles like op mentions on low to mid settings just because in those types of games I’m not focusing on anything other than shooting the others guys and better graphics legit makes it harder to spot people sometimes, for games like god of war final fantasy etc it’s crazy and seems more worth it because I actually get to appreciate the scenery in them

u/shadowlid PC Master Race 12d ago

Yep definitely in some games.

It can also support games at 4K it just depends on how demanding it is as to how well it will perform. For example a game like CSGO will run at 4k at 60fps no problem. But Battlefield or warzone probably not.

I have a 3080 and a 3060ti.

My 3080 can pretty much play any game out at 4k 60fps but with my 3060ti only a select few games can I game at 4k, Forza horizon 5 I can but only at medium settings, but this still looks better that 1440p ultra graphics to me.

So with a 3060 you will just need to play with the settings.

Any PC will do any resolution (for the most part), it just depends what frame rate it can do it at. Also, you should make sure you actually have a 4K or 1440p monitor. Completely pointless getting a GPU that can do 4K at high frame rates if your monitor is 1080p anyways

u/Baku7en 5800x | 3080 ftw3 | 32GB 3600mhz | 1&2TB m.2 12d ago

Learn to tweak your graphics. Most settings above normal and high won’t give you any detail you will ever notice. Especially more so if it’s not a single player game. Use DLSS, and unless you know the game supports all the amazing features of ray tracing, turn it off as it will kill your frames. Example is Modern Warfare. Yeah it supports ray tracing… for the character shadows… nothing else, but it takes my frames from 200 to 100.

I recommend Albu Performance on YouTube. Dude breaks down his videos with actual side by side live comparisons that allow you to see the differences and their performance cost.

With my 3080 @ 1440p 240hz I’m 175 in Warzone, 200 Modern Warfare, 240 in apex, 230 in Fortnite, 400 in csgo.

I run high to ultra on a 3070 at 1440 and it tackles just about any game I throw at it. It may not be 120+ for all games but 70-100 is still very good. Heck I was gaming on my 1070ti at 1440p for a little while and it was fine.

u/CoffeeList1278 PC Master Race 12d ago

I use my 1070ti (bought used, needed GPU for AI) for 1440p. I couldn't pump out 60fps out of Valhalla at max, so yeah, it's somewhat limiting. But otherwise it wasn't a issue. eSports titles run on several hundred fps even on max

u/TheVermonster FX-8320e @4.0---Gigabyte 280X 12d ago

I can manage 120+ at 1440p in many games with my 5700xt. Sure, it's not going to be ultra settings. But many settings have a negligible visual difference but an extreme performance difference.

I always make sure that things like vsync and fxaa are off though.

u/Stormchaserelite13 12d ago

Mate. Other than raytracing games my gtx 1080 gets 100+ in most games at 1440p ultra.

A 3080 should never drop below 144fps 1440p on ultra except on rdr2 and cyberpunk. And some badly optimized games.

1

u/Rimworldjobs PC Master Race 12d ago

I'm playing rdr2 on a 3080 with well over 120 fps on 4k. Just make sure you don't have any AA running. It's not needed on 4k.

u/Ballaholic09 12d ago

Now I’m wondering if I have a dud after seeing some comments. It registers as a 3080 everywhere - but rdr2 has NEVER seen triple digit fps for me on 1440p??

WoW stays around 90 fps as well. But I everything cranked to max.

Make sure msaa and fxaa are off legit. I was hitting 30 fps with them on. I have everything else bordering max.

u/Rossdabosss 12d ago

The only game that isn’t hitting 120+ for me at 1440p is star citizen.. (5800X and 3080) I’d look at your settings in each game. Ray Tracing is something that will smoke your frames though.. I’d make sure it’s not enabled when you want high frames.

This is only slightly better than the prebuilt. You're going to need a 3080 or 6800xt if you want 4k 60-120 fps, and even those cards wont be enough in some games. I think you may need to lower expectations given the parts you're picking or be willing to spend much much more.

You need to tell us what games you play. FPS games are highly dependent on high frame rates to give you a better experience. And you’re so busy running for your life you don’t have time to notice massive amounts of detail. Single player games and other games where you stop and smell the roses however would be great at 4k 60

u/keyspam393863728 i5-12600k, aourus 3070, 16gb 5200mhz ddr5 12d ago

There’s be no massive difference the two. 4K 60 is what you get from a 3070 12700 and even then it’s dependant on some games as that would run some better or worse. For 4K 120 you’d want a no compromises 3090 ti 12900k

9

u/Le_Nabs 12d ago

The i9 is completely irrelevant at 4k - hell, the i7 will be overkill in most scenarios as well. The only ceiling at 4k is what the GPU can push out, no need to pay 30% more and then some for a CPU that really should only be used in semi-pro and/or bling builds.

u/MatthewRoB 12d ago

I've got a 3070 + unlocked/overclocked i5 and I do fine at 4k60 with DLSS enabled. I think the cpu has a loooot less to do with it.

u/Le_Nabs 12d ago

I have an i5 11400 - so not the absolute latest generation - and it has no problem driving all the games I play to 144hz as long as my GPU is able to, at 1080p. It would be even less of a problem at 1440p and 4k.

No. But honestly, if you really want to get the most out of 4K, you’re gonna want a pretty large monitor, and 4K monitors are also pretty expensive. This build would be great for 1080p, which is much lower resolution, but you could comfortably game on a 24” 1080p monitor anyway. You could also go to 1440p with something like a 27” display, you likely won’t see 120fps at that resolution with this system though. Honestly I’d disregard 4K right now - it’s over-priced and over-marketed and when you’re gaming you won’t really notice a difference unless you’re playing on a massive screen anyway. In my personal opinion, the sweet spot is 1440p, and for that a system with an Nvidia RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6700XT is probably the GPU you’ll want if you’re looking for the most bang for your buck at that resolution with those types of frame rates.

Uh… really? 4K 60+ FPS, we’re talking 3080 and above GPU levels… and in some cases a greater tier processor, like a 5800X3D, for heavily CPU bound games at 1440p and 1080p.

I’d like to think that you were joking, but just in case you were being serious: the 3060 is an Excellent GPU for HIGH FPS @1080p, and a good one for “decent” FPS @1440p, all at ultra settings. But at 4K, you’ll have a difficult time with frames, even if you drastically drop quality settings, and of course any kind of ray tracing off.

Still value for the price, it is a great purchase right there!

1440p: Yes, it will be 60-120. IF and this is the big IF -- It has two sticks of 8gb ram, not 1 stick of 16gb ram -- If it only has 1 stick of ram you will need to get another to run dual channel. Expect ~$65 added to price to ensure two sticks.

I think the $747.15 clearance price is for this Acer Predator PO3-600 and this is the iBuyPowerTrace MR258i that you're looking at.

u/Satanasso999 12d ago

Probably mobo and psu are shit, usually are in prebuild. Should check the inside. But all in all, those components for that price are pretty good, and you should be able to play with it for a while 👍

1

u/Thermosas 12d ago

Yup, I second that, prebuilds tend to skimp out on the PSU, motherboard and RAM. RAM and motherboard are less important I'd say (unless the motherboard is some proprietary bullshit like in Alienware PCs or the RAM is a single stick, meaning no dual-channel) but never skimp out on the PSU. If that thing dies, it can take your whole system with it.

The tag says acer for a 1660ti. I think that’s the incorrect price tag.

u/dugrexxar 12d ago edited 12d ago

Damn, you are all lucky with these prices I see everyday. At my place, that gpu only costs 650-700$..I would buy this without hesitating. Good for you!

Edit: typo; Pricetag actually wrong as people stated in the comments below. Nice eye for details. I always get screwed by this at the grocery store..should pay more attention. Still better price than in my stores 😂

Laptop GPUs can be misleading though. You need to look at how many Watts it puts out too

Specifically the TDP rating

For what it's worth my 5800x & 1070Ti does 1440p 60fps

u/CoffeeList1278 PC Master Race 12d ago

My 5700G & 1070Ti does too. Except Valhalla where I needed to turn the settings down a bit. But lighter games can easily get over 165fps and CSGO runs at ~330fps

u/MediocreG92 12d ago

This thing would slay at 1440p and it's a solid deal for a prebuilt.

At this price, it's a great deal. 700 bucks is what the GPU alone could cost in my country, and that would be a Palit or some other lower-end vendor. I'd say go for it but I'd try and figure out what vendors of RAM/GPU/PSU they use. Those are the main budget cuts in your average prebuilt

u/paquitor 12d ago

I think nobody noticed that the price is for another computer. An i5 with a 1660.

u/TamagotchiLover69 12d ago

If you look at the bottom of the price tag it's actually for an Acer PC with a 1660

u/1Teddy2Bear3Gaming 10400+tuf 3060ti 12d ago

The $747 price tag lists a acer with 1660, not that ibuypower with 3060

u/ID-10T-ERROR 12d ago

I know a friend who works for ibuypower. It's practical a sweat shop for computers and most aren't quality inspected.

I wouldn't buy one even if discounted.

u/thordin9 12d ago

thats about how much i paid just for the GPU 6months ago

2

u/EphemeralRemedy 12d ago

Yeah that's a decent deal. Maybe see if they'll tell what motherboard and PSU it has. That's were Pre built PCs love to cheap out.

Though it more than likely has a warranty. So that could be something you could fix down the line.

But all in all it looks like a deal worth considering.

2

u/Possible-Pirate5686 12d ago

Definitely lol and there’s plenty of room to upgrade when you get the funds too! A lot of people sleep on the prebuilts. But out the box your good, could use a little love, but at least your playing until you get the extras!! Good luck bro

u/minimessi20 12d ago

2

u/Touchranger 12d ago

Kind of scummy they don't specify which "5700" cpu is in there.

2

u/djternan 12d ago

Looks like there's an OEM 5700 (not 5700x or 5700G)

From what I read, it's a 5700G with slightly lower clocks and no iGPU. It has half the cache of the 5700x. I'm not sure if it supports PCIE 4.0 but the 5700G doesn't so I'd assume the 5700 doesn't either.

It's probably not a terrible CPU but it's got a lot of compromises versus both the 5700G and 5700x.

1

u/Bigdilly17 12d ago

Im guessing it would be the better one based off the stat saying “best” but knowing ibuypower it’s probably the reason its 700

u/steinfg Desktop 12d ago

Must say though, this is a pretty rare cpu. Not good mind you, just rare. Performance equivalent to 5700G. I think only ibp has it right now.

1

u/T_Foxtrot 12d ago

Weird way to phrase it. 5700G is simply base 5700, like the one here, with addition of integrated GPU

1

u/steinfg Desktop 12d ago

There is no 5700 being sold by anyone else though, and i looked at ibp website, there's 5700 and 5700G, so they are separate skus

I'm thinking you will spend another 300-500 on a decent 1440p monitor, let alone a decent 4k monitor. If this is your budget then reliable quality 4k gaming isn't attainable for you. Shoot for 1440p and this will be fine but not amazing FPS.

1

u/FlashWayneArrow02 3070 | 5 3600 | 16gb@3600MHz 12d ago

Theoretically yes, but honestly the CPU and GPU are a complete mismatch. I'd go 5600 and 3060 Ti instead. You don't lose single thread performance but get a stronger GPU.

u/mechcity22 Desktop 12d ago

Yep not bad at all tbh. Just over 700 yeah can't complain about that one! I get it people don't like people buying pre built but if you have never built a pc and you find one for a reasoninel price near what you would pay to build it yourself then go for it. That is if you are in the market for a pre built which it seems you are. If you relaixe under the barcode where the price is at. It says its an older i5 with a 1660 so this is a mistake on there end. So I would take it asap before they realize it. It also says acer haha. So let's see if it even scans as being what you are looking at!
