Excellent choices in components
Comes with 2TB storage drive and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 770
Cons: Haven't found any yet
Other Thoughts: Just got this bad boy today, and am super pumped to try my games out, but while I wait for them to download I thought I would point out a couple things... At the top of the page they claim it comes with a AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB video card, then in specifications they state that it comes with a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 770 2GB, I was hoping for the GTX 770, and that was exactly what I got. I also thought it very strange that both in the top description, and in the specifications it only comes with a 120gb SSD, and no storage drive. That was really the only thing I was disappointed about when I ordered it, but I had a couple extra 10k rpm 512gb drives in my old system I could put in for storage, so I ordered it. It came with the 120 SSD as described, but there is also a 2TB storage drive included!! I really think Newegg would sell a lot more of these if this page was accurate.
I am not going to rate it yet, cause I haven’t really tested it out gaming, but I giggled like a little school girl when I restarted and watched how fast windows loaded. My plan is to install the game I play 90% of the time directly on the SSD, and everything else on the storage drive, you have to remember to be vigilant to change the install directories from C:\ to E:\ whenever you install something, but it’s so worth it. SSD is amazingly fast.
The case is huge, but it’s so nice, looks much better in person than on the site. Easy to get to everything, lots of room, PS on the bottom, So far I cannot audibly tell that the computer is running, even when it’s sitting on top of my desk, right next to my head, in an 80 degree room. But right now the fans are spinning very slowly, and they may speed up when I crank up the gaming.
Mine came with an EVGA video card, I think it is the EVGA w/ ACX Cooling 02G-P4-2773-KR GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card. My SSD is a Samsung 840, and the MB is a Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3. I am sure they are not specific about those for a reason, but I just thought you all should know they are using very high quality components, even for the stuff they are not being specific about. There is no way a normal person could buy the parts that make up this system on their own and come anywhere close to what I paid, and I don’t regret a single choice they made by doing it for me, although I might have gone with another brand than LG for the BD ROM DVD RW.
The software it came with is perfect IMHO, most of the stuff I need, and very little of what I don’t. I usually have to spend an hour uninstalling bloatware whenever I buy a premade pc, but with this one, a couple toolbars and I was GTG. Not really anything I needed to install either, other than my antivirus (which does not come with ANY manufacture’s pc, unlike Norton or Mccaffey), my games, and a ton of windows updates. It came with windows 7 HP SP1 (IMHO Windows 8 is pointless for any computer without a touch screen) on an actual disk I can hold in my hand
