5 out of 5 eggsSolid as a ROCK!

Pros: This computer is very stable and memory intensive programs don't make this even shudder!

Cons: None that I've found. I finally got it to lock up on me after pushing it to the limit.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a computer that can perform well while handling multiple progams this is the computer for you. AMD's technology really makes it fast. I have a buddy with a P4 Intel (not dual core) and he can't do some of the video editing things I can do with this computer. For the money you can't go wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: Fast! (Mine is the 4600+ 2.41GHz) Installed a nvidia 7600GT. This computer rocks. Well built.

Cons: 300watt power supply is a little under powered for the 7600GT video card, but it works.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this pc again.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Computer

Pros: Fast processor. It is able to burn through almost everything I throw at it. The 2 gigs of ram is a major plus. That allows you to run ALOT of stuff at once without taking a performance hit. The case is small and overall well-built. The motherboard has 3 pci slots and one pci x16 slot, which is good, because alot of manufacturers are going with 2 pci, 1 pci x16, and 1 pci x1. The pci x1 is totally useless as of now and I am glad it didn't come with one. The CPU is a socket AM2 which is very good. The motherboard also has alot of expansion in the area of hard drives. Video card plays most games alright.

Cons: The dvd burner won't read all-region dvds. My computer anyway didn't like my microsoft keyboard, wouldn't shut down when i had it plugged in. It would just come to the blue screen where it should shut down, but it just didn't shut down. I replaced it with the Hp keyboard and it works fine... I wonder why... The video ram is shared, which I knew when I bought it, but it suffers game performance when i got it. SATA drive is somewhat noisy at times.

Other Thoughts: Overall a very good computer. For the price, it can't be beat. This isn't a gaming computer, but has the potential to be one with a new video card. Plan on putter a radeon x1650 pro in here. The computer is VERY quiet, the loudest thing is the dvd burner when spinning. Case is somewhat too small. I don't blame this on HP because it is a micro-atx case. However, two hard drive spaces are taken up by front-panel connectors.
