Pros: Incredible upgrade from my past laptop, speed, ram, storage- its all here. I do little gaming, I purchased this CPU for VIDEO and AUDIO editing purposes. So i cant speak to graphics like some of these other reviews might. However, i am very pleased with the computer overall. Runs protools 11, adobe cs 6 everything, reason, fruity loops just fine.
Cons: the only con is the situation with the USB ports. It seems to me that they all work correctly, but i have enough USB's plugged in that i get a pop up warning telling me there are not enough USB resources available for all my equipment. This is pretty flippin annoying. I have (usb connections) :: mouse, keyboard, headset, seperate set of external speakers running through an audio interface (mbox 2 mini) and thats it. It wont allow me to have the external speakers, and the headset connected and toggle between the two. I have to unplug my headset, reboot and plug in my speakers and let it boot with only those plugged in to get them to work, and even then i have trouble. Mind you, im running some pretty serious speakers so im not sure if that's an issue. This may not affect you but it does with me. I havent even plugged in an external drive or external card reader, but im sure with all these other connections, both would fail.
Other Thoughts: aside from the lack of USB resources i love this computer. It is quite possibly one of the best deals on newegg here. PS- is this a motherboard issue? or if anyone is having similar issues and found a fix or something email me : mpawlick @ gmail ((no spaces and .com)) thanksREAD FULL REVIEW
