Terminator 3: War of the Machines


It's just like Battlefield: 1942, but with Terminators ... and nothing approaching enjoyable gameplay.

It's got Terminators; gameplay may vaguely remind you of Battlefield 1942

Poor performance issues; no servers to play on; barebones single-player missions with horrid AI

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines- ps2


This game really disappointed me in the graphics department. So many things were dark and unclear; it was like I was playing a shooter from a few years back. Lighting effects were almost non-existent. Extra touches like reflections would be a nice...

Asus T3-P5945GCX review


A barebones kit is a useful halfway point between buying an off-the-shelf PC and a box of separate components.

Still not working, but it looks good


Hopefully I will get this running. Great feature set, perfect size. Well thought out extras, like the way the power supply swings out of the way without being removed. Everything easily accessible inside. Once it works, I'm going to love it... if it...

Good looking unit, great size. Looks good on paper, but I haven't got it working yet. Murphy's Law is always proving itself (see below).

First unit was DOA. I paid a shop to test it, and my components to make sure it wasn't me. Second one isn't working yet. The fans run bit it won't POST. Based on another post here that it won't work with a Wolfdale processor I've ordered an older one...

As others mentioned, the power supply was set to 220 by default. The BIOS needed updated before it would POST, which required an older processor that was supported by the factory-loaded BIOS. Someone said that this box only shows 3.2Gb of RAM when they...

Very quiet, small case size, with the right components, it's a fast little machine! It's plenty fast enough for me w/ 4Gb of RAM, and an Intel Core II Duo 2.6Ghz (wolfdale). I don't play any games on it, but I'm doing A LOT of school work on it with no...

Took me a full weekend of t-shooting to get the thing to POST. Would not post with a Wolfdale! Had to install an old processor in order to POST/boot, then update the bios, then install the Wolfdale. It was an aggravating process! Luckily my friend had...

I like the size and cost


See the Cons, a little tech support thing that made me pull my hair for a moment. I don't understand why they would ship a prebuilt barebones PC with a power setting that causes the motherboard to fail.

Can't really beat the price point when you take into account the very common rebates on this.

The power supply is preset to 250 volts, which results in the motherboard failing to post. You just need to flip the red switch in the back.

ASUS T3-P5945GCX Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel 945GC Silver Barebone - Retail


Great case and motherboard, however, BIOS needs updating.

Stylish and compact. Reliable Newegg shipping.

BIOS needs updating. I installed 4gb, but it only recognizes 3.2gb. I read other people's comments from Asus forum, they also had the same issue. I had trouble with the USB after the latest BIOS update. USB speed downgraded to 1.1 instead of 2.0. I had...

Great Little Machine I've Owned


Wish it can bundle 350W Power.

This is a great machine. The internal layout is designed well and is easy to work on. The cables are organized, the correct lengths, and tied down. Easy to assemble and plenty of ports.

The power supply is 300W only, not enough.
