Hey /g/, I'm finally joining the PC master race. I am able to buy this PC in specific for reasons I will leave out, and I would like your "professional" opinions on it. But let me stop you first, yes I know it's cheaper to build, so don't even bother saying that, I just want to know if it's good for the money

It'll be outdated when dx12 comes out.

AMD is releasing polaris mid 2016. The 980 will be obsolete for VR by then.

I was actually in the rare position where I was getting a really solid deal from iBuyPower a few years back.
The computer was gorgeous, I still miss it, and had all the features I could possibly want.
That said it repeatedly would seize up and crash, I sent it back, on my own dime, they took weeks to check it out and send it back claiming they found no issues but replaced some suspect parts for the error, and I quickly found they fixed nothing and the same problem kept happening.
I returned it, which they again wanted me to pay shipping for, after which I called their support and had some choice words for about an hour with a couple people, I ended up getting a full refund on both shipping costs and the computer. This whole attempt to buy from them took the entire summer.
I would not buy from them even if their prices weren't inflated.

build one yourself faggot

Go to an independent computer store, they will assemble it for you and you can pick the individual components so you don't buy overpriced useless parts. It shoudn't cost more than 50 bucks.

1600 money for i7 when i5 is better. GTX980 when 970 or 980TI is better for the money. Only 120GB of SSD memory.

This is why prebuilds are shit.

Dx12 will make games run much smoother freeing them up a bit from relying on drivers. Dx versions aren't updated that often. Dx11 came out in 2008 and its 2016. That card doesn't fully support dx12. If you wait six months you can buy one that will. Vr is just virtual reality. The dx12 cards will run it better.

We're arguable at a really bad time to buy a new pc.

Nvidia and AMD are launching new hardware in about 6 months times that will be the first substantial upgrade in graphics cards in the last two years. This means better price performance hardware regardless of which end of the budget / enthusiast spectrum you're tending towards.

In addition to this, we're on the cusp of VR and we really don't know what kind of hardware is going to be required.

Personally, I think if you can wait you should wait.

Well, $1000 less for probably the same performance is worth noticing.
