This gaming computer received great reviews, and so I took a chance on it for my children. My son specifically told me not to purchase windows 8. This came with windows 7. A gaming computer is so much more powerful than a regular computer. It has increased memory, performance, speed, and advanced video and audio cards. I would not just recommend this computer for gaming, but also for use as a desktop computer. There is nothing that you can't do on here that you can't do on a regular desk top - PLUS SO MUCH MORE - than a desktop. Cyberpower is a popular name in gaming computers, while one may not recognize as they would HP, Dell, etc. The bottom line is that I was very pleased with this purchase, and if I could not buy a MAC, I would buy this gaming computer, as opposed to any other desktop.

I was looking for a computer for home use to replace my old out of date desk top. This re-furbished Dell is just what I needed. It is quick, comes with Windows 7 and is much smaller than my old one. The keyboard is not of great quality, the 'Back' key is too small. Overall, I think I got a great deal on a real quality product.

The computer was received within 5 days! with regular ground shipping. It wasn't promised for 7-10 days.

This PC was never looked at by anyone at Overstock or was the victim of Overstock handling. The PC was wrapped to well with bubble wrap to have been dropped in shipping to cause the damage. The impact of the fall caused the CPU fan and housing to be knocked free from the case and laying in pieces. The CMOS battery was dead which is the best indication that the PC was never looked at other than dropped. It hadn't been turned on for so long the battery run down from no charge. I probably won't purchase another refurbished or other wise used PC from Over stock.

Being the item was refurbished, it did not have all the bells and whistles we are accustom to. The "personalization" selections were none, as a matter of fact, what is on the computer, leads me to believe it may have been an Asian computer. It took forever to have it accept all the "updates". There is nothing wrong with the computer, it is me, I will purchase new next time.

Installed a monitor, keyboard and mouse to the desktop and turned it on. Everything worked perfectly. I mainly use this as a back up to my laptop so I don't use it for gaming or other hardcore applications so this is a perfect desktop.

Just received this Optiplex 760 desktop and incredibly it came without a wireless adapter. No mention of it on the description either. Usually wireless adapters are incorporated onto the mother boards or the systems come with a card. What a hassle it is to have to now get more components in order to finish setting it up.

Not a bad desktop and is what I would have wanted EXCEPT that it had Windows 8 preinstalled and that is my fault as I misfired on this when ordering. So unless you want the pain of transitioning to Win 8 I suggest you make certain before you buy that you can tolerate Win 8 as it is a "pain in the a...." . I have ordered Win 7 Pro so that I can use this machine where I don't have to be re-schooled on another OS.

This item was a refurbished Dell Business Desktop (XP Editiion) computer that someone installed Windows 7 Home Premium on. It works really good and I have not had any issues with it. Thankfully it is dual core pentium and so it can handle Windows 7 pretty good. In spite of it's age it is very fast. Even going online with IE 8 is fast (a couple of seconds). Web pages load quickly and programs would probably open in a second or two if not for the built in security features of Windows 7 where you have to give all programs permission to open but since I always use Comodo firewall on my computers, I am used to that anyway. It comes with the Windows 7 CD in case you have some issue that requires you to do a re-install and the back up disk making software included in Windows 7 is excellent. There are a lot of good things about Windows 7 but it has it drawbacks too. There are a lot privacy invasive issues with Windows 7 that I was not too keen about and the contract that you have to agree to before they will activate it also stinks and nearly made me send back the PC. The keyboard is a standard, run-of-the-mill, no name cheapie that costs about $5 if purchased separately and mine shorted out about two weeks after I purchased my desktop but Overstock was on the ball and all I had to do was call and explain the problem and they immediately set about getting and shipping me another one and told me that I didn't have to return the old one so I just threw it out. The mouse is also a standard run-of-the-mill mouse corded, nothing special. Over all this was a good deal but the issues that I have with how invasive Windows 7 is keeps me from giving this a five star rating.

No sysprep and found key loggers on it. Very unprofessional build. If you know how to reformat and repartition the drive it will be fine. By no means except this build as it is.

After I have waited 2 weeks to get this computer I can tell you that I am more that pleased. It started up just fine, only issue first starting up that one of the fan wires were hitting the fan. It was a simple fix, just move it out of the way a little. But overall this computer works great. The GTX 650, which is the graphics in this computer is fantastic. It can play almost any game at medium to high settings. Overall this computer is a great start for gaming and I highly recommend this PC.

This was a gift to my son for Christmas. Once set up, the power cable does not seat in the connection properly, way too loose. Now after 2 days the computer does not work at all, it turns on but does not come up to a screen only a cursor. Very disappointed in the product.

Great PC, especially for the price. This computer has a Dual Processor and is running on Windows 7, and for only $175.00 you can beat it. I always tend to buy refurbished PC because i have never had any issues doing so.

The computer came quickly, was exactly as advertised, and works great. It was easy to set up, since it came with Windows 7 already installed. We use Google Chrome, so our settings synced to the computer, and we were up and running.

Computer had absolutely nothing on it other than Windows and no monitor. Only worked two weeks and crashed with a critical error showing no hard drive found. I was unable to even boot it up and had to return for a refund.

The computer I received started out nicely being reasonable in price and free shipping and handling. The site unlike several others told a lot about the product including how many ports wattage Ram ex. However upon receiving the item I've been unable to use it there appears to be a problem with the graphic card. Its not sending anything to either monitor and am unable to use it. I tried to find a number to call however they only have a e mail which is kind of funny sine I need a computer to e mail. ATM I'm giving a bad review since I can't rate the quality of a product if I can't even use it. I am sending a message to them tonight about my problems and give an update on what happens.

I have purchased many computers from Overstock for my small business. I even purchased a Dell Optiplex previously. This one was a lemon. It shuts off intermittently. It won't consistently communicate with the printer. I had to reinstall Windows because I got a message on the computer that the operating system that came with the computer was pirated. Lots of problems. Getting in touch with Customer Service was a joke. The first time I waited 60 minutes and was on the phone with them for another 45 minutes to solve the problem with the operating system. When I tried to get back to them about the hardware issues I was asked to wait 80 minutes for the next representative. I left a message for someone to call me back but no one did. I've made many purchases from Overstock and this my only bad experience. Now I'm out $200+ and have to buy another computer. I'm debating whether or not to try Overstock for this again or not.

I ordered this product, but it never shipped. The UPS tracking number indicates that a shipping label was created, but it was never delivered to UPS or picked up by UPS. Attempts to resolve the issue of the product not shipping have been futile.

It will not even let me download a letter weitten in word to this computer. I have to take it to a computer store I guess to get it fixed. I tried to reboot the windows 7 that came with it and all it does is try to DVDR? I should have spent my money somewhere else. Buy the time I go pay someone to look at this and fix it. I could had gotten a good one. Live and learn. Buy it nice or buy it twice.
