MY PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH ALIENWARE:
I had been saving for a month or so to upgrade my PC. Being new to gaming and PC's in general i ordered an alienware aurora at £1,100 it arrived late 8 days late. Then it had problems from the get go. me being clueless as to how the PC actually works i had no idea what was wrong. It came broken out of the box so they sent over someone to fix it. They said he would call in 1-2 business days took him 6 business days. Then it took him 3 hours the poor kid had no idea what he was doing either just kept looking at some manual. Once that was done i thought finally i can check this thing out then the hdmi port wasn't working... So i had to use the DVI port. Finally i was able to start using the machine after using it for a few days it didnt power up... I got extremely frustrated when i called into their customer services who just kept repeating the same nonsense as if i am a dimwit and don't know how to power up a computer. I hung up and had the PC refunded.

REVIEW ON THIS PRODUCT:
I was then looking for a new PC. I was really fed up at this point bad ordeal with Alienware put me off buying another PC. So i asked my son if he could just buy me a gaming computer with the money and he ordered this. It arrived in 4 days! 9 days earlier than the earliest estimated delivary date. Needless to say i was surprised by that, it was very carefully packaged and surprisingly big! I set it up all that was easy, it came with a box of stuff windows 8.1 disc, Msi utilities disc(got told its useful no idea what it does) something that goes into the PC with crossfire written on it(again no idea what it is, dont need it to use the PC) and the code to redeem 3 games of your choice from a list of maybe 10 games. The PC itself works like a charm, i can play all that i wanted and more, i mean no surprise it has high specs all round. There were no problems with the PC except from the VGA socket but i don't use VGA anyway. The PC was all that i needed and it was at a lower price than i was willing to pay. The only thing that bothers me is i have no idea what a few things do in the box but thats only because i know so little about computers. All in all if you have read this far this PC is most definitely worth buying if you are looking for a powerful gaming PC.

EDIT:So my son told me the other day if you were to try and build this pc with all its parts etc, you probably wont be saving any money. Especially if you include some of the delivery prices of all the parts where as you get free delivery on this pc. Basically you are getting the cheapest price for an already built computer.

Lovely P.C after 2 years and a bit still running like a charm.
Plays most modern games still in Ultra but Fraps rate is down due to the graphics getting outdated per say.
Can't knock the machine, i upgraded the motherboard fan because that bugger got noisy after awhile but i put in a Artic Cooler 30 something cheap but keeps its very cool and quite.

Oh yeah, i got this item very fast shipping, came very well packed in a massive huge box like HUGE! lol

Overall 5 STARS

I did a Windows Environment rating through Control Panel with this and it got a rating of 7.0 (highest is 7.9) so it is certainly good for next gen gaming.

This PC will easily handle Battlefield 3 in ULTRA. In fact it can handle all games provided in ULTRA with no lag what so ever...

I highly recommend buying this PC. A great purchase!

You get used to Windows 8 after some time too... You can always downgrade to Windows 7 Pro if you really want to by disabling fastboot and safebios in the BIOS menu before startup.

Disappointed original package arrived damaged, and would suggest Vibox look at how they send their PC's out as their equipment is securely boxed and housed in original packaging, right side up, then placed on it's side in an outer box with no markings for carriage, leaving them exposed to whatever courier

That being said they were super efficent at rebuilding and dispatching a replacement whilst they were arranging collection of the damaged article. Customer service was brilliant, can't fault them on this. Did everything they said they would do, and they maintained a level of contact that meant after the initial call I had to do nothing.

Machine up and running, no issues, looks good, runs fast. Very happy consumer!

First thing's first, this is a great PC. It is cool and efficient! It looks amazing and can handle long gaming sessions. It worked perfectly and ran straight away. Totally stress free download of Windows 8.1 as it was already done for me! Graphics card inside was a Royalking Club 3D R9 280, which it didnt say on the description, however, I am pleased at what a great surprise it was. It was well packaged and difficult to be smashed by the couriers. It survived 4 hours of journey and made it to me on the first day on estimated delivery.

Very pleased with computer, very fast and came with extra games so got 4 in total instead of the 2 that i had purchased with computer, a bit disappointed Battlefield 4 wasnt one opf them but still great games i was able to download.
Steven at Vibox CX was very helpful and called back when problems arose after contacting them.
I had ordered from them before and was not overly impressed with the service I had recived previously so was in two minds about using them again, but on this occasion it seems they have improved.
No fault of the company but can not get the hang of Windows 8 but that being said at time of writing review that is only problem i have and sure i will find a work around to get back to windows 7 layout havent played any games on the machine yet so will review performance in a few days.

*Update 17th May*
So had a few days playing around, getting used to windows 8 once you get used to it the tiles function is quite useful, was a bit lost for things like control panel and my computer section but now i found those liking it a lot more, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, Saints row 4 running all on ultra and tested fps using Fraps everything runs at a solid 60fps slight drop every now and again but very minimal and for a few seconds if that, did have to go into bios to boost ram speed as was pre-set quite low. PC is very quiet even after using for a good 7-8 hours testing games max temp i reached was 28C, loving the corsair water cooler. Played Dayz Mod and Arma 3 for a few hours each, with Dayz Mod depending on server quality was averaging between 30-60 fps on ultra settings, Arma 3 a steady 35 dropping to around 25-30 during games with a lot of people which is fine for me as dropping settings will improve fps was just seeing how much i could get out of it.
Would recommend pc to any gamer who wants good quality and a reliable PC and if your in the know can prob push the 290 a bit more than me as not really into all the o'clocking that is possible just needed something that can play gasmes a bit better than my lappy and also good for everyday use

I was considering buying this package although before you do check out custom built to order desktops. I can't speak generally but in this instance I paid slightly more for much more powerful specs than on offer here through a custom build firm. For example this graphics card advertised here is quite dated at the time of writing. So just bear that in mind, just thought it was worth sharing this info. Like I mention I can't comment on this actual product.

This arrived very quickly. Upon opening i noticed the Water cooling was not installed and there was a rattle coming from the side fan. Contacted VIBOX as soon as i noticed. They collected it the next day. The correct part was fitted the fan was replaced. It took a week for me to get the PC back.

The computer is itself is awesome. Have played many different game and never had a problem.

Very happy in the end.
