Pros: I needed to replace an ancient P4 running XP so I bought this for the processor, Video card and the RAM. It was a bargain for those parts alone.
Cons: It's a Micro ATX motherboard in a Mid Tower sized case with only two 5 inch bays and two 3 1/2 inch bays, with a silly plastic sloping front that takes up too much space and does not provide direct acess to the 5 inch bays. The top bay is for a slim style laptop drive! Had I known this was the deal I would not have bought this particular machine.
It also comes with Win 8.1 on a 1 TB HDD, which I unplugged and replaced with a 1/2 G Corsair SSD and Win 7 Pro (Home will not run all 32 GB of RAM). I also added a basic ASUS DVD R/W +R DL burner.
It comes with a BD ROM, but no software to play BluRay discs - you have to go get that yourself. Kinda cheap of ASUS, if you ask me. That same laptop style drive also does CD/DVD RW on up to +/- R DL discs.
Other Thoughts: It works, it boots in about 5 seconds, it's SILENT, it blasts through the latest hard core games on a BenQ 24" 16x9 1 ms monitor. I have a feeling I will be using this as my primary machine for a long time, probably adding more SSD for Xmas.
I did buy $500 parts for a backup machine to run WIN XP3, since I have so much software that will not run on WIN 7 or 8. ;)
Pros: Simple, easy to understand and install.
Cons: Started to vibrate and make noise after about 6 months, had to replace it.
Other Thoughts: How hard is it to get a decent Hard drive? This WD replaced a Seagate that was only 9 months old, and now I'm replacing this one. Am I unlucky or what?READ FULL REVIEW
