Great computer, good for gaming too

 

great economical choice to play games. the computer works great and room to upgrade

The power supply need to go, I changed it as soon as I got it

Consumer review by:

Good overall value, can't overclock easily

 

1TB Disk is limiting factor on Windows7 performance test, all other metrics rate very well. Although motherboard will support upgrade to Phenom II 1100T 6 Core Black Edition, no way to overclock using BIOS control. AMD Overdrive will overclock the...

Fast machine, 6 Core, 8MB DDR3, supports 16MB, 1GB LAN, Radeon video, tons of USB ports, Windows7 included, great bang for the buck at $499

BIOS has overclocking control removed vs retail version of motherboard. Reflashing retail BIOS will void OEM Windows 7 authorization ; Constant annoying humming through speakers ; Keyboard is beyond terrible, junk it ; 8MB DDR3 is 4 x 2MB, not 2 x...

Great Performance For The Price

 

I can run BF3 on High to Ultra settings with no problem. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this set up to anyone for the price. You cannot build this computer yourself for less than this. Shipped quickly and was delivered in working...

CHEAP ; 6 Core Processor ; 8 gigs of RAM ; decent video card

Power supply it comes with is not adequate so I changed that out right away ; Other than this...so far so good

Awesome

 

It's got plenty of solid parts and it all seems to be running pretty well so far. Not even sure what I could need a hex-core processor for to be honest

The Disc Drive wasn't plugged in when I got it, but that was a very easy problem to fix

Amazing PC

 

Very fast, I had it for about a week. It played any game out there

One thing you have to do is get a 500 power supply

Consumer review by:

Excellent

 

Because the HDD was kinda slow, I upgraded to a 1st gen VelociRaptor 10k RPM. Which led me to two things: 1), There's no way to get the OS off the old hard drive (which, by the way, started crashing when set as primary HDD), and 2), the WEI score...

Amazing value. Can't buy the parts alone for this price ; Excellent CPU for the price. I may, however, switch to a Phenom II x6 1100T (3.3 GHz.) just cuz ; Plenty of memory. I've never gotten above 4.49 GB in use, even when running VM's and other...

Horrible PSU. Who in their right mind would put a 300W PSU in such a beast? It can be easily and somewhat affordably upgraded, but still... You kinda need to upgrade that before putting much else in. I put an extra HDD in, but I don't think it...

Not a bad machine from a blind persons point of view.

 

I couldn't believe how quiet this machine was for how fast it is. Newegg did help in the tracking of it while it was in transit. I would recommend this computer to anyone that has a need for a very fast computer, but can't afford to spend much. From...

grate processer, very fast machine over all, very quiet, nice components

couldn't make recovery discs from the recovery partition, had a strange issue with two windows keys, but neither one would let me activate when putting in new hard drive, had a bad hard drive, but was able to change it, and the obvious could use a...

asus cg1330-05 recertified

 

good bang for the buck for sure. if this is enough machine for your needs / wants then its a good deal.. keyboard and mouse are cheap feeling, but hey it is a cheap pc. not a con. for value alone this gets 5 eggs.

price/performance ; quiet ; nice looking

dvd burner power connection was unplugged from the drive... probably got pulled loose during shipping and handling... tossing and dropping

Consumer review by:

Wow

 

Everything about this system screams performance. The System is a monster

Windows 7. I suddenly can't seem to get online and it's really p*ssing me off

Consumer review by:

Impressed

 

I read the reviews saying to get a better power supply- I did, got a 650wt and hooked it up, was easy to access in the case, and ran perfectly afterwords. The case was easy to open considering i've never had to replace a power-supply/anything in a...

Great right out of the box. Case looks like new- still had the front-case stickers ; Completely silent (I've never heard the fans kick up-- but they work!) ; Case stays nice and cool- no overheating ; Came with an instruction manual in a PDF on the...
