5 out of 5 eggsso far good

Pros: Roomy case, good cable management, Good packing. comes with a Recovery disk, fast, Runs everything great most of the time, quite case fans.

Cons: Runs a bit hot, playing high end games the CPU fan sounds like a jet at take off. One stick of 8gig of ram. The onboard sound is weak ( supports 2.1 speaker only) the delivery co just left the boxes on the porch no signature required. At first Windows 8 , but working with it for a month I got over it, do not for the love of all update to 8.1!!!!

Other Thoughts: I usually build my own rigs but decided to buy a pre-built one this time. I shopped around a lot and decided on an Avatar. I received the computer, opened it up, everything was plugged in and fine. Booted right up, registered windows 8 and off I went. As I noted it runs a little hot so I added 2 case fans on top and an other one on the side and runs nice and cool now. I installed 2 sticks of 4 gig ram to bring it up to 16 gig. I also installed my old SB Live 24bit card in the free pci slot, it was a tight fit but I got it in, The motherboard is a micro-ATX so don't count on a lot of future upgrades. I am very pleased with the Avatar. I can burn a DVD with DVDFab in about 8 minutes. Play FPs games with no lag, web pages load in a flash. I recommend this machine to the average user that does a little bit of everything but not to the extreme.

3 out of 5 eggsjust purchased

Pros: Looks good for the price. I chose the free delivery which is 4-7 days. So I will update this as soon as I get to play with it.

Cons: Don't know yet

Other Thoughts: Worried about the WIN 8 horror stories, but I will be my own judge.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PC

Pros: Bought this PC for video rendering and streaming. It has been plowing through everything I ask it do. Everything I have tried to do so far has worked flawlessly. Easy access to the insides, convenient connections externally. Great PC for the money.

Cons: Idles at about 41 C, not bad at all but probably going to invest in an aftermarket cooler for the CPU though because if I'm streaming I could go for an extended amount of time. Would also have like more PCI slots. The 2 PCIe are already taken by the GPU and I installed a wirless network adapter in the only PCI slot left. So I'm pretty much beat if I want to install anything via PCI.

Other Thoughts: I personally threw in an SSD to boot from and throw Photoshop, iTunes, and other seemingly resource intensive programs on there. Runs like a charm and I highly recommend doing the same.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: System is very fast. Grafic card is good for a lower end card. I run games on high with no fps lag. Has 1 8gb ram and not 2 4gb. So can be easily upgraded to 32gb ram

Cons: I opened case when it first arrived to make sure everything was plugged in properly and found a wire tie wrapped in the case fan on back of unit. But no other complaints.
