Mystery Issue


I bought this for gaming, i have an older ASUS PC that runs fun with an upgraded PSU and Vid card. When I got this one I started it up and made sure it wasn't DOA, afterwards I installed the higher wattage PSU and the new Vid card. It runs fantastic...

Other times doesn't run at all

Great starter desktop!


It's a great starting computer for any gamer, and it has a PCIe slot for graphics card expansion. Awesome deal for the price! Like I said, a great starting gaming PC. If you want awesome graphics, get ready to fork out a couple 100 for a new video...

Awesome processor, outstanding storage, it's an Asus, great expansion

Not top of the line

I think I know why u all have problems

Should come with a real power supply

I think it may actually have the processing power I need. Will have to wait another ELEVEN months to dare to try & find out. If you are considering this PC.. do yourself a favor and read on

Without a doubt the worst desktop PC experience I have ever had & I've owned & maintained PCs since before hard drives ; I purchased this PC to have the processing power to edit HD videos & find out I can NOT install a Blu-Ray burner, 2nd Hard Drive...
