DELL Optiplex 790 Small PC  Core i3-2120 3.3Ghz, 8GB, 750GB, Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit,  1 YEAR WARRANTY
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Computer is pretty fast for what you get.

Cons: It only came with a power cable no mouse/keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I know I am getting a refurbished computer but shouldn't it come with a mouse and keyboard?

Acer Desktop PC ATC-605-UR2K Intel Core i5 4460 (3.2 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4600 Windows 7 Professional

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast computer for the price. Asus normally puts together a decent computer and you don't have to worry about quality.

Cons: It says in the specification that there are 4 usb 2.0 ports on the back but there are only 3. Only 2 USB 3.0 and on the front none on the back. You can always put in a USB card in the only PCI-E port.

Other Thoughts: There are only 5 USB ports in total on this computer. There are no USB 3.0 on the back which is not terrible but it is something to note if you are looking at this computer (odd as most come with at least 2 on the back).

Asus also splits the HDD into 2 partitions and I guess wants you to put all your data on the DATA partition. I personally don't like that and want everything to be on one partition so make sure that you change it by going into the computer manager and deleting the partition and expanding the C drive.

MSI 760GMA-P34 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price, form factor, and RAID.

Cons: I have really 2 issues with this board. One there is no documentation that talks about the RAID in the manual. I was able to figure it out and it does work I just would have loved to see some documentation about it. The second is the CPU fan. I have updated the BIOS and no matter what I do in the settings the CPU fan is on full blast which makes it real loud.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this board as I was looking for something that would work with an Athlon II x4, would do a RAID 1 at 6GB/s, and also fit into an old HP case and this was able to do all of that.
