5 out of 5 eggsGood but read

Pros: Pros: Runs like a champ, everything that is expected for what youère paying for, EXCEPT THE PSU!

Cons: Cons: The Power Supply Unit. Please, for the love of all that is good in this world, if you buy this product in the future... RIP that PSU out and replace it with a Corsair 700 watt or something reliable. It WILL violently blow up. I had mine explode on me in 6 months, which is a long time compared to some of these comments.

5 out of 5 eggsDepends how much you cry about it

Pros: Run all my game on ultra high no problems for over 1.5 years
Lots of upgrade room
Bought open box for $650 it has a real i5 and MSI gtx 760

PSU will fail 99% buy a psu at a small computer shop for $30-$40 problem solved. No other problems other than the PSU and a fan just now starting to click.

The only reason I gave 5 instead of 4 stars is when i call the support at msi and avatar they both suggested the psu was to blame.

Cons: Cheap fans
Cheap PSU
Bad Cable Management

Other Thoughts: If you catch it at a good deal its perfect and easy to replace a psu and worth the extra $30.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy, overpriced

Pros: I got it for 850 dollars

Cons: PSU issues, which might as well tack on extra 50 to 100 dollars and tech support is very slow. It could take 1+ days to respond and that even before you fix your problem. It is now overpriced and been loses a lot of money if you buy. Get something from cyberpower or ibuypower if you must buy a pre set pc.

Other Thoughts: As I said early, Do Not Buy. Avatar does not deserve your money.

5 out of 5 eggsSwapped PSU

Pros: Great CPU+GPU combo
Case has room for extra fans
Blue LED in the front intake fan looks cool.

Cons: No Wi-Fi adapter, you will need to either use a cable or buy a separate wireless adapter.
Mouse and keyboard are low quality. (expected)

Other Thoughts: I bought it knowing the psu was underpowered for the build but it was on such a great deal, so I swapped it out with a 1000watt Rosewill psu and it has been running great, no problems, it runs all my games on high settings like Guild Wars 2, and can handle huge projects in my art software without lagging.

3 out of 5 eggs1 Year review

Pros: Geforce GTX 760 2 GB GRAM.
Core i5 quadcore with 4 hyperthreads.
Bought for $850
Setup was simple. Shipped fast.
Buttons on the case are nice to press.
COMES WITH RECOVERY CD AND DRIVERS CD!
Costumer service was friendly and helpful for minor issues.
Came with a 500w PSU, when I looked up the power usage of this machine it only requires about 400w.

Cons: Motherboard cannot run SLI/crossfire.
Only 2 USB 3.0 Ports located on the back of the PC.
Can get noisy when playing very demanding games.
Front fan gets dusty.
Bottom fan gets very dusty.
Could have better cooling.
Specifications paperwork was inaccurate, the pictures are of another motherboard.

Other Thoughts: At the time I bought this I was just learning about computers and wanted a gaming PC after gaming on laptops and the family computer all my life. I did not have all the know how to build my own PC and did not have the money to risk it, so I decided to buy a complete one. This is a good PC for the 850$ price.

I play all sorts of games, the most demanding being Rome 2, Starcraft 2, Titan Fall, Farcry 4 and Bioshock Infinite. Usually with the graphics on high. This Pc has been able to handle most of what I throw at it and Im satisfied for the price I got it for, a lot of the issues I had were with Windows 8.1, If you can I suggest switching it to windows 7 Home Premium Or better. I currently Use win 8.1.
FINAL THOUGHTS
This is a great PC but it lacks a mother board with lots of expansion potential and still uses USB 1 ports. You only have 2 Ram slots, 1 PCI-e 1x slot, and a PCI-Ex16 slot(which has the GTX780 in it.) The fans could be better, I plan on changing the heat sync. If you are not going to be expanding this PC beyond a PCI-e 1x slot then this is not a bad PC to go with. You may not be able to run everything on max settings on a constant 100+ fps but you will certainly be able to play a majority of games, if not all. This isn't a custom build behemoth of performance, but it is powerful enough to be called a good standard gaming PC if not a little bit better.

1 out of 5 eggsBusted Graphics Card

Pros: Arrived quickly and in one piece. Set up was a breeze.

Cons: Running any game requiring the GPU causes hideous noises from the GPU followed by a hard crash. Confirmed with both Dragon Age: Inquisition and Sims 4.

4 out of 5 eggsReally awesome :D, but annoying to listen too

Pros: This pc was awesome! I use it almost everyday for either school or gaming. I get enough Fps to satisfy my needs. I've gotten used to windows 8.1 and I think windows 8.1 is awesome. I love almost everything about this case, but I do have ! problem.

Cons: One SUPER annoying thing about this pc is the noise....I understand when I play games I can't hear the sounds, but I can't concentrate when I do schoolwork. One thing I tried to do was to replace the cpu cooler, but it wasn't the prob, but I found out it was the power supply. I will try to save up and invest in another power supply. I took off 1 egg for this :/

Other Thoughts: Love this pc, but the only prob was the constant "Hummmmm" of this pc

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost a year late, still perfect

Pros: Everything, literally i have had no issue with this computer. I bought this computer on 2/20/2014 and at the time i only payed $812. i have recently (bout a week ago *wink) bought a second monitor and still no issues.

Cons: i have no cons to name off other than the current price, that is was to pricey.

Other Thoughts: Idk what people are saying about the PSU. in the almost year ive had this i have not had a single shut down, even while playing some super demanding games (Arma 2-3, ESO, any battlefield)

overall i love the computer; Hate the current price

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Experience Ever

Pros: Terrible terrible terrible, no pros.

Cons: Ordered this on sale on black Friday. (As a christmas gift for my grandparents)

PSU died in 5 minutes.
Had to RMA the PC
They asked if I want a Replacement, or Refund.
I said replacement.

So what do I get ?A Refund of the original sale price.
Then they go tell me to just rebuy it (For the full price of 1400$, instead of 700$)

Seems like a scam to me, I plan on investigating this and seeing what's going on. Because they refuse to replace the computer I sent in.

Seems like these guys sent out a whole bunch of broken computers on black Friday, so that they could get RMAd, and then the buyers would have to pay full price as the sale has ended.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste you're time, get something that works, This computer is trash. It can't handle any games unload, the PSU just shuts down.

4 out of 5 eggsComputer is great PowerSupply is not

Pros: The graphics card and cpu are great and I've only had time to test 2 games so far and both ran on ultra settings so far including WoW at 97 fp and Total War Rome 2. Computer was delivered extremely fast and was easy to set up out of the box. (Make sure you hook up monitor cables to the graphics card and not the motherboard) On sale the price wasn't bad, got it for just over $700 which is an incredibly good price for the GTX 760 card, 4th gen i5 cpu and most of the other parts. Comes with a free keyboard and mouse which aren't high quality, but they're freebies. Has enough room for minor upgrades, another 8 GB stick of RAM can be added and there's room for an SSD which I definitely plan on adding. 4 USB 2.0 ports and 2 USB 3.0 ports. 1 HDMI slot and a VGA adapter so you can probably work out a dual monitor setup. Starts up fast even without an SSD.

Cons: The power supply unit seems a little weak. I saw the reviews on the psu, but I figured I'd try my luck with it. I looked inside mine and found it came with a Lepa f1 600w power supply, which you can look up on newegg. I guess they're trying to address the issue, but the upgraded power supply doesn't seem to be too good. About 30 minutes into playing a game on high settings the screen would go black and the computer restarts. I'm going to attempt to contact either lepa, newegg or avatar to get the psu replaced. After looking up the 600w psu on newegg I saw reviews stating the power output is only 450 watts and someone mentioned the psu having surges which causes the motherboard to shut down to protect itself.

Other Thoughts: Overall I would buy this pc again, only real problem is the psu and from what I saw in other reviews you can get that taken care of with the good costumer support at avatar or newegg. Also even with having to buy a new psu if you get this pc on sale it still beats similar spec computers on price.
