HP Desktop PC Pavilion H8-1230 (H2L73AA#ABA) AMD FX-Series FX-6120 (3.5 GHz) 10 GB DDR3 2 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 1GB DDR3 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Pros: I bought this PC mainly for it's processor. I've seen the very same AMD FX-6120 go for an upwards of $600 by itself. With the standard 10 GB of RAM, 2 TB hard drive, integrated Beats audio, and GeForce GT 620 graphics card, this computer easily worth $1000 in value. It's upgrade-able, easy to set up, and the PSU it comes with is extremely quiet.

Cons: The keyboard it comes with replaces the standard letter "B" on the keyboard with the Beats logo. This takes some time getting used to for those chicken peck typers like my father.

Other Thoughts: After adding 6 GB of Ram and upgrading the GPU to a Radeon HD 7870, It's turned into a monster of a home PC. A great alternative for those not willing to spend $2000 on gaming PC.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6570 DirectX 11 GV-R657OC-1GI 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: - Excellent value
- Playable FPS at 720p
- Nice big cooling fan keeps this thing at 40-60 Celsius
- Extremely Quiet (this thing is a ninja)
- Compact

Cons: - Will cause some programs to shut down if you overload it
- Tends to get a bit loud at 90% memory usage

Other Thoughts: This GPU proves you don't need to spend an upwards of $200 to enjoy today's graphics demanding games. I was amazed with the amount of processing power you could get with a $70 graphics card. I've been averaging 25-40 FPS with medium settings on pretty much every current title (i.e. Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, GTA IV). Don't buy this if you're looking to play at 1080p though, that's where this card is limited in terms of playable FPS
