4 out of 5 eggsCheap and Reliable

Pros: - Was $300 off when i bought it! like woah
- Good enough CPU, with six cores, somewhat low clock speed
- Graphic card worked decently for low end games
- Tons of USB slots, all of which i use

Cons: - PSU was way too low, 350 watts is not enough if you want to upgrade.
- Loud
- Case not well ventilated
- HardDrive burned after 2 years, lost all my data, but its whatever, i just bought a new one, re install windows and everything still worked fine til now.

Other Thoughts: When i bought this, it was a steal, glad its still working til this day, after i made upgrades to the GPU and PSU, It can pass as a gaming computer, but with little room for anymore upgrades due to small mother board.

2 out of 5 eggsLook Elsewhere

Pros: Once it works, it is a great PC for the price. The Phenom II X6 is plenty fast for most basic applications, as well as sufficient for gaming along with the 5750.

Cons: There is no "refurbishing" done to any of these machines. I bought mine for my father at the age of 15 for him to use (I very much wanted my own to myself), and was very disappointed when after saving for quite a while to buy it, they will not work; period. ASUS receives the machine, slaps a junk MOBO, PSU, and second-rate RAM into it, and calls it refurbished. It took a new Foxconn motherboard and a Corsair CX 500 to get it working. The only reason I gave it 2 Eggs is the fact that once it works it is great. I am more disappointed in ASUS for stiffing their customers.

5 out of 5 eggsRefurbished - Best computer I ever invested in

Pros: Great base computer. I upgraded my power supply and graphics (as most of the reviewers on here have). This thing is powerful and can play most new games with ease.

Cons: Poor base power supply and graphics.

Other Thoughts: small towers with big graphics cards get hot. invest in some fans.

1 out of 5 eggsThis PC is trash

Pros: Specs are decent, other than the PSU and GPU

Cons: Power supply is way too small for this PC. Graphics card is underpowered for what this computer is advertised as. Bought it refurbished, been having blue screen errors since I've had it. Called ASUS about getting it repaired DURING my warranty, and was never offered to send it in for free repair. Now that my warranty is up, they want me to ship it in for repair, without even telling me how much they are going to charge me. Terrible customer service. Never will I buy anything from ASUS ever again, nor will I buy anything refurbished from anyone. Cant believe they havent recalled this junk PC with as many people Ive seen having the same problem.

Other Thoughts: Dont even know what to do from here. Unsure if it is the motherboard or hard drive. Have already replaced the power supply and graphics card. Cant afford a $200 motherboard/hard drive right now. Very disappointed with this product

4 out of 5 eggsWorked till it was paid off. Um

Pros: Worked great for a year or so. June 2011 til July 2012. 90 day warrranty it came with. Bought an extended 1 year for 59.00 when I purchased this. Good thing I did. August 14 2012 had MB Replaced Ran till August 23.2012. Now the hard drive is going south Blue screens. Random dumps. Turns on when in sleep mode Won't start in safe or any mode Crashes when it feels like it Start up repair doesn't help. Hell it'll crash in the middle of that

Cons: See Pros Sorry,

Other Thoughts: I will never ever buy another Recertified anything of Newegg. I know better know Good thing this took a dump now My warrantys up Sept 3,2012 No more recertified and rebuilt junk from Newegg

1 out of 5 eggsDisapointment

Pros: I ordered this machine to do vmedia editing for my church. At the time of the the order we were just doing audio and posting to our website with the idea we would start video in the future. I did not know much about the requirements we would need but seeing this machine as a "GAMER" I figured it would work fine. WRONG!! This machine will barely run Premiere Pro Editing software. I regret ever buying this machine. :(

Cons: CPU slow, Power supply to small, cheap graphics card

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value.

Pros: Great guts for the bucks.

CPU - Benchmarks great. Watch out however nothing properly uses more then 4 cores so for gaming. You're really only getting 2.6 4x.

RAM - Cant go wrong with 8 Gigs

Big Hard Drive

Overall the components are mid grade.

4 Easy access USB ports.

Easy access expandable/removable memory slots.

Hey the mouse and keyboard are ACTUALLY DECENT!

Cons: Video Card is outdated but does the job.

Power Supply is weak, it must be your first upgrade like ASAP. The thing hardly runs on 300Watts.

Narrow Case, makes it hard to install any after market case fans/radiators.

Hard Drive is SLOW!

No Overclocking support on MOBO, therefore you need a new win7 version to flash A/M Bios. Kind of a let down there.

The stock cpu fan is NOISY! Buy a new one.

Other Thoughts: Biggest let down is no overclocking support. Its kind of sad its advertised as a gaming system and I cant overclock without re-buying windows.

Aside from that it does the trick runs almost anything you want reasonably well. Your upgrade order should be.

Power Supply->
Any expandable device (Wireless or extra Hd ect.) ->
Video Card ->
New Windows ->
Mobo(Flash A/M bios or get a new mobo) ->
HD (SSD would be best for system speed 60-100gbs is sufficient) ->
Better cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: The overall value of the computer.
This computer has everything you could want in a price that is unbeatable.
It's performance.
This machine can do anything you ask of it right out of the box. Dozens of PDFs, hundreds of 18mp in Photoshop, Battlefield 3 at its max resolution, multiple instances of your favorite MMO, anything.
Lots of complaints about the Power supply but the one i got seems to have an upgrade.

Cons: In order of Severity.
The Case.
No case fan. I bought 2x 120, in the front out the back. There is little airflow in, only tiny front vent on the underside of the case. The problem with the rear fan is it gets its air from the excessive side ventilation! Absolutely zero vacuum action. I closed the vast majority of the side, and attached an air duct to the stock cpu cooler. This forces the out fan to suck hot air from within, and the cpu gets cool air from outside.
It's the low end x6. I am going to replace it with the black edition once the am3+ drives down am3. Bringing you from 2.6 to ~4.
The Ram
8GB of ram takes up all 4. Already replaced it with 16gb of Mushkin Silverline
The Motherboard
Voids your windows when flashed to the retail version of the mobo to allow overclocking. I cannot confirm this, I will only be overclocking the black when i get it.
The Graphics Card
Slightly dated, preforms great
Only leaves a pci e 4 and 1 pci open i used the pcie4 f

Other Thoughts: So far after i bought this computer i spent.
15 on case fans (i got white LED to match the asus logo)
15 on a ram fan (just because it's cool)
50 on 4x4GB Mushkin Silverline
15 on a stellar wifi card i cant recall
50 on 2x 9Db Asus antennas for wifi nic.
2 on cpu duct.
170 on 23" Asus 1080p monitor on hdmi

4 out of 5 eggsGREAT!

Pros: worked great right out of the box, Phenom II x6 processor, Decent video card (runs BF3 at ultra, and Elder scrolls V: Skyrim at high) 8 gigs RAM!

Cons: Power supply is a tad bit on the weak side, case has no fans which is a big con for this PC for ASUS I mean why would you put these two things in such a BEAST of a PC?
