I remember what it was like to be a student in university. Money was often hard to come by, but the fun to be found was plentiful. Things were pretty much carefree and I focus on fun and studies, at least, as much as possible. Back then, I wasn’t a real computer enthusiast, didn’t know much about building a system, but I know I needed something reliable to get homework done, and some fun if time allowed. So I bought a system. I don’t date myself, but let’s just say it wasn’t anywhere near the horsepower of what’s available today.

It’s important to remember that many computer users out there have absolutely no clue how to build a system; they simply know how to just use one. Enthusiasts may scoff at the notion of buying a system, instead preferring to build one, but not everyone is an expert. So, wanting to have fun and being a gamer doesn’t inherently mean you know how to build a computer system. But as a student, you don’t have the cash to buy a really hardcore rig. So what’s a student to do? Well, there are several companies out there who can take care of that if you fall into this category.

iBUYPOWER is one such company, offering users the opportunity to order a pre-designed system, or a customized one, and can suit just about any budget. Their systems tend to be built with the gamer in mind, so we have high expectations today as we take a close look at the iBUYPOWER Gamer Power BTS11 gaming rig that’s specifically geared to students. More precisely, it’s "Back to School 2011", hence the BTS11 moniker.

Interestingly, the BTS11 comes with the latest 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge CPU, liquid cooling, and price tag of just under $1000. Sounds awfully tempting. Let’s dive in and get our game on to find out if this rig is worth our hard-earned cash.
