Great PC for the Price 11/23/2011
Great PC for the price. If you can get over the fact this is a refurbished PC it is a no-brainer to buy this if you’re in the market for a mid-range desktop.
Fast Sandy Bridge Core i5.
1TB Hard Drive is nice; apparently the HDD price-spikes don’t bother the PC manufacturers :)
Runs very quiet.
Factory installed bloatware (anti-virus junk, DVD programs) were easy to remove.
New power-supply barely fit in the case, but for being a pre-built system that is to be expected.
PCIe x16 slot is mounted very high on the motherboard. A nVidia 8800GT barely cleared the DIMM slots. If you choose to install a video card make sure you pay attention to the dimensions. I cannot unlock the bottom DIMM locks without removing the video card first.
Had to add an intake fan in the front for proper air circulation. But again, this is a prebuilt system not designed for a large video card.
This is a great buy for an every-day family computer with an extra kick of power. Or if you have the know-how and have an extra video card or power supply laying around or are willing to spend an extra $150 on new ones this is a great buy for someone who wants to do a little bit more.
Received within two business days of ordering with free shipping. +1 for newegg.
