"Everything about it's awesome, very satisfied :D"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

(For me, 3= good, 4= great, 5= excellent/ basically perfect. Daylight robbery to buy. You get the picture.) The customer service was patient and helpful no matter how stupid the question and the whole process was easy. Problem charging the debit card meant the payment had to be redone a day or so later but the items STILL arrived far earlier than I expected. One thing to note is that I was caught out by a change when the rig was restocked, replacing the 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD with a 240GB SSD. What were you guys thinking, taking out the HDD-! (Good thing I have an external one I guess) As for the rig itself, it is a beast! I noticed most poeple swapped out parts with the Little Monkey but this thing runs Bioshock Infinite at ultra and Arma 3 on high, only dropping noticeably (for me this is <40 fps I'd say) occasionally. So very happy with the Gibbon overall, I can see a lot of use coming out of it. Tiny nitpick- Smudge marks on tower window DDDDD: Parts- 4/5, Site- 4/5, Service- 4.5/5, Performance- 4.5/5

"A great gaming rig"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is, for me, the perfect gaming rig. Well within my price range, a free keyboard and mouse (although you can get other things for free) and a great processor and GPU. I'm currently awaiting a HDMI – DVI cord to hook up the GPU, but the processor alone can handle OW at 60fps low settings. I'm also glad the GPU is the GTX 1050 expedition edition (there are 4 Asus GTX 1050 GPU's) which is built for great long term durability and non stop gaming, while retaining great fps and graphics. While it only comes with a 256gb SSD, I have recently put in a 1TB HDD which is possible because of the easily upgradable Deepcool Tesseract white case the computer is in. In my opinion, if your looking for a well made, high graphics and fps gaming rig all at a low price (which I think is everyone) then the Gibbon gaming rig is definitely for you (P.S. It comes with steam pre-installed which was a nice touch)

"Good value and convenient"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Good value for the parts – I had a mate price them up as we were thinking about building our own and it turns out you're only paying about 100$ for them to put it together, install everything, test it etc. Which is well worth it and very very reasonable. Setting it up was also very smooth and it runs right off the bat. I appreciated the helpful little note left on the desktop also. It was also well packaged and arrived / was built quickly. A minor quibble; the note with the link to the help page comes up on your desktop – surely printing it and slipping it in the box would be a better idea as I only turned it on once I had everything set up! For example, it tells you to keep the packaging… Which I'd already unpacked and almost thrown away before I actually turned on the computer to see that. Also I feel it would be helpful to have a “recommended products” guide to go with it – not being hugely into computers myself I forgot to check if the monitor I bought (VGA input only) would actually go with the graphics card (HDMI, DVI-D, & Displayport it turns out) and I had to run out and buy an adaptor which was a bit of a pain. Something to help dummies like me avoid doing that would be cool. Overall very pleased with it!

"Gorgeous Pc"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

What aye Beauty, you will not be disappointed with this Pc out of the box. Im so glad I bought this Pc from Mighty Ape. Everything you would want done with this Pc before you open it has be done. Plays games on high like a gem and it brings me Joy Playing BF4 on Ultra with 80fps. Thank you Mighty ape for this Pc. Unfortunately I do have to add my less than disraiable ordering with which im confident will be a one off experience. I ordered for Pickup on a Wesenday thinking I would simply be able to pick it up on Friday. After a little investigation for updates on My order I unearthed the fact that they had ‘lost’ the Pc. The Mighty Ape support is amazing and they changed my order to shipping for free when the Pc came back in stock . It was shipped on Friday and unfortunately took till Tuesday arrive at my door. I know 6 days isn't long… But the reason I choose pick up was to avoid the debarkle of NZ Post. Still a 5/5 rating for me on the product and have already bought from mighty ape again.

"Good for the price"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a good budget gaming computer, can run most games at 1080p 60fps. The only down side is the storage, what I did for my self is bought 1 tb of hdd and told the people at mightyape install it for me. They are great support. I use my ssd to boot up windows and hdd for gaming and other storage.
