The machine performs admirably for all media whether it be MP3 music, AVI video, HD Video or streaming from the web. Media Center has no problem finding and playing all media on the system. So, I can say that this is a fantastic media PC. I installed an ASUS 20X DLDVD-RW and the computer plays back DVD without any lag or glitching. It also burns DVD and CD without any errors so far. Burning software tested with was Windows Media Player, Nero Express, Power 2 Go and Adobe Encore. All of the burning programs were able to handle the high speed data burns.
Playing games on the system is highly impressive considering there is no SLI or Crossfire support with the Intel chipset. The motherboard handles the GeForce 8800GT in a single card installation and plays almost as well as another SLI configured PC with the two of the same cards. Games tested were Doom3, Battlefield 2, Half-Life 2, Halo 2 and FlatOut Ultimate Carnage. All the games played with acceptable frame rate (never below 30fps with average 60fps) with no Anti-aliasing and display set to 1280x1024 32-bit resolution.
