4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad Computer!

Pros: For the money this is the best choice I could have made for gaming.

Cons: So far the only thing wrong with it is the sound I can not get any sound. After readying the other reviews this seems to be a known issue Newegg should something about this and make it right to us.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: -Very great gaming computer

-Runs mostly everything on highest settings (or close to it)

-Smooth game play

-Can run a lot of tasks at once

-Awesome for a first buy

-Amazing price for what it has

-Good air circulation in the case

-Sleek look and feel

-Nice size and is light weight

-A lot of extra bays for upgrading (3 bays plus 1 for possible USB addons)

Cons: -Only 2.6 GHz processor

-A little loud (not too horrible)

-The keyboard is a little awkward then what I previously had, but I'm sure I'll get used to it over time

-The mouse is also kind of awkward then what I previously had, the side buttons tend to be clicked when I don't want them to be clicked and I end up going back and forth through previous pages on my web browser.

Other Thoughts: A great price for such an awesome computer, I HIGHLY recommend this for gamers who want something they can use. It ran Crysis like a charm (A popular benchmark for most computers)

I had a slight problem with my speakers, but I think it was just the fact that they are about 8 years old.

I also had a problem installing the WUSB54GC v1.0 Linksys wireless adapter, it just wouldn't install, so I had to go out and buy a new adapter for about 50 dollars, A minor annoyance but just a forewarning to anyone who has that adapter.

I like the look it has, the Orange-Red trim with the neon lights really makes it pop from out of my black computer desk

Again, I HIGHLY recommend this computer.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: For 500 bucks it can't be beaten. 4 gigs of ram, 1gig video card, and 500gig hard drive is worth the 500 right there!

Cons: Ran into a problem with the windows vista so i ended up putting good ole windows xp on it and it runs great.

Other Thoughts: Amazing computer. I have yet to find a game that even tests the limits of this thing.

1 out of 5 eggsthis system sucks

Pros: has great graphic when the don t cut out

Cons: I had two of these system now. They problem I had is that both of the 2 system I had just stop working. The frist one had major wire that were lose on the side fan which cause a short, the second of the same system just quite an hour and half in the middle of playing Wow. Newegg took care of the first one but the second one they said I have to got through the manufacture even thoe I only had it out of the box for 3 hours! Man if that dont suck I don t know what does

Other Thoughts: I would stay away from this system it seam good on the top but not well put together

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pc

Pros: First i would like to say great case looks are kinda ugly but cools down this computer great i had to get GPU pci fan cooler that was 20 bucks but other then that its all good lights up prettyy nice and is really fast when it boots up or shuts down i mean fast i get abotu 250 fps on CSS also fans dont run at full speed so if u want them to run full speed buy a fan controller overall great pc good job newegg this computer is great for anyone who is looking for a cheap gaming pc

Cons: the only con i would have to say about this computer is that my front headphone jack doesnt work and 64 bit windows visita is really wack but its a great pc

Other Thoughts: would like it in a different color besides red would like to upgrade mobo later on to add more ram umm also my GPU is a 9500 gt but its not from nivida its from sparkle computer? which i found really upsetting but its okay because it runs more then great

4 out of 5 eggsVery good overall buy

Pros: Recieved the computer yesterday and it has very little bloatware if any at all. Sound and video quality are 20x better than what I was previously using. Very quick boot up and shut down.

One of the best things about the computer is that it has a lot of space as far as new drives go. 1gb video card is a bonus for sure, and runs vista like a charm. Bought Call of Duty : World at War and it runs amazingly at full boar.

Cons: Front headphone and mic jacks aren't working right. Need to see if I can fix still. Not a lot of room for more RAM, was disappointed but its a large upgrade from my 5 year old PC.

Other Thoughts: Great buy for little price. I recommend the buy.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Love it! Needed a light gaming tower and that's exactly what I got.

Cons: No real cons yet. The fan is a little loud but barely noticeable once the speakers are playing anything :)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget Gamer tower

Pros: 2.6ghz processor, 4gig ram 9500 nvidia $500...sold!

Cons: For those who are not aware...the video card is DMI only no D-sub port. don't know if that is a "con" for some but i didn't look at prior n had to spring for a cable...no biggie.

Other Thoughts: Could have saved $90 bucks building myself...mabey ...not worth the research. buy this comp if want a solid entry level gamer comp. I play mostly WoW on it runs very stable in all areas. Multitasks pretty well also. Great job Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: If you are a gamer and on a strict budget this is hands down the best buy. The 1GB video card is awesomesauce compared to my old system. I play WoW and used to lag in WG and heavy AoE raids; Now I get up to 50fps in both those situations with everything turned up to the max! The graphics are stunning and the processor is powerful enough to run fraps during a raid and not even notice it's on. Great low budget system!!!!

Cons: Sometimes it won't shut down. It has locked up 3-4 times so far in a 2 week period, but bugs are expected and I'm new to Vista (a.k.a. epic fail OS) It seems there is a short in the onboard soundcard as well.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is amazing! Very fast delivery with nice packaging standards.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Ram

Pros: Nice specs on the machine for the price.

Cons: Machine arrived on Wednesday, today (Friday) the errors started. I've let memtest86+ run for 20 minutes so far and 2048 errors have occurred in memtest86. I'm not sure how the ram in the machine made it through QA, but this is unacceptable even for the low price.

Other Thoughts: Newegg had nothing to do with the hardware or the errors, and I will continue to do business with them.
