Pros: Easy To Set Up, Versatile, Powerful, Quiet, Never Freezes
Other Comments: Fastest computer for the money that I've seen...and fast enough for me and my game play. Very easy and fast setup time. You will have to tweak the video card to get you best color depth and hue. Basic settings are dull and too bright. Data transfer from my backup hard drive to this computer was very fast for a 7200 RPM drive. One word of caution when installing any software, especially games, everyone knows to disable your virus scan but also turnoff your automatic updates too. This can also mess with your installation especially if updates download and install automatically. I did have an error code32 on both DVD and BD drives, which means both of the devices were disabled in the registry when it burped. Re-installing the drivers did not cure the problem. This happened after installing an old software program, it just didn't like it. I cured the problem by restoring the computer back one day just prior to this software installation and everything is working fine now. Too bad for that one guy that had a bad computer from the start, because this computer is pretty nice. One thing I did worry about is, it runs so quiet I didn't hear any fans. I check the bios setup and the setting is on smart fan and the temp seems to be ok at that setting. That's pretty cool. I'd buy this computer if your looking for a affordable semi-high end machine with gobs of RAM memory. It's not only good for games but also for video and picture editing. I think it's a must to have a 24", 2ms response time, HD monitor. Mine looks great with thisvideo card. You can also speed things up with a 10,000 rpm 2nd drive to put your games and video on. I'm going to if they have one in that removable bay drive section, if not I'll go with a regular in case unit.. That's my next buy. Have fun with your new machine....
