Pros: Cheap, and can be overclocked for a small gain. Works great on games(just cause2, gas guzzlers) to name a few. Doesnt require a big power supply they recommend a 400w seems like over kill to me. Does not require a separate power plug.
Cons: Not the beefiest video card around,. May have to set games to run at low or medium depends on the game and screen size.
Other Thoughts: My screen is 1680*1050 and for a video card like this its perfect however a bigger screen would maybe require a better video card. The card is good for mid level system with a low power supply. Most games will however play on the higher res screen with a low to med setting in game. Great for people who want to game on the cheap. As long as your going in with some what realistic expectations you should be happy with this card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP DC5750 Desktop PC Athlon 64 X2 2.1GHz 2GB 80GB HDD Windows XP Professional
Pros: Just got this machine. Updated it and ran fine. This is no powerhouse system but a good upgrade from a pentium 4. It does have xp pro that is kind of on the old side but should work fine for browsing and other tasks. This is not a gaming rig to be sure. It does have a ton of usb slots on it,also no bloatware on it. Does include windows disk. Doesnt work with the acer tab thru the usb cable. A limitation of windows xp. It is quite. Also the dvd player works just fine.
Cons: Well the operating system is old. Windows xp pro will not work with a usb cable with the acer tab 500. However a work around this is to download windows media player 11. Memory is a little light and the hard drive is very small by todays standards(80gigs compared to 900gigs or higher). The keyboard and mice are on the cheap side, but ok.
Other Thoughts: Great older system at the shell shocker price of 135. The price is now a little higher now so the value is not so hot but more like lukewarm. The older operating system being the main problem with the higher price. Xp is a very old os now. However that being said its still an ok priceREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price and a video card that can play current games. Its also very light. The screen while bright isnt the best but its good. No dead pixels I could spot right away. Wifi works very nicely and battery life is good 3 to 4 hours depends.
Cons: The mouse buttons are very stiff really need to press down hard to get it to register.
Other Thoughts: I think for the price I paid for this $ 500 it was a solid deal while it lasted. However they appear to be out now.READ FULL REVIEW
