PDS VECTOR CQ Desktop PC - Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz (E8400) - 4GB RAM - 80GB HDD - DVD+RW - Gigabit Ethernet - NO OS

Pros: I bought this computer to build a cheap Home Media Center PC. These units are advertised with 80 gig HD's. The unit I received shipped with a 160 gig HD. I installed Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS 64 bit, and added an extra 2 gigs of RAM bringing the total RAM to 6 gigs. The on-board video GPU consists of (1) DVI-I Single Link connector, and (1) DVI-I Dual Link connector. The on-board video GPU is more than capable of displaying 1080p. I'm using a DVI-I Dual Link to HDMI adapter cord on a 46" LED TV, and the picture quality is great. I've been using this computer for about 2 weeks now, and it has been a solid performer. I'm considering purchasing another one of these computers for the $55 shipped price. You can't go wrong.

Cons: The case and faceplate show a good amount of wear, but you can't complain too much for the $55 shipped price. You will eventually want to upgrade from the on-board DVI-I GPU to a HDMI GPU.

Other Thoughts: First and foremost I highly recommend adding another 2-4 gigs of RAM to these computers. The added RAM greatly enhances their performance. If you plan on building a Home Media Center PC, and want to display Blue-Ray DVD video you will need to upgrade to a HDMI video GPU to make the unit 'HDCP compatible'. The on-board DVI-I Dual Link GPU will display standard definition DVD's and streams, but it won't display 'some' 1080p streams, and it 'will not display' Blue Ray DVD without a dedicated HDMI video GPU.
