Pros: Very fast, I'm able to max out the graphics on every game I've played. I've got it hooked up to 3 24 inch displays which works great. Normally I run a Linux Virtual Machine inside of Windows 8 and have all sorts of server stuff running while I play a game on top of it all which is why I needed the memory. The system hasn't slowed down yet and is honestly better than I would have expected.
Cons: No eSata. Not alot of room inside the case for expansion. There is only one free SATA cable. Very weird hard drive setup. There is a 3TB drive and a 20GB SSD used for caching. It's weird enough that I can't "clone" my drive for backup because it has some weird caching partition setup.
The BIOS is odd. Out of the box you can't boot from a USB or load Linux. The BIOS is coded to say "Windows Boot" instead of show individual hard drives or external drives. I had to spend a hour on support with them to figure out how to turn that junk off. If you only ever use Windows and don't need to boot from USB it's not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: Killer system for the price. I hate the locked down bios stuff and wish there was a eSATA or some more room for expansion. But I wouldn't want to pay any more for it. Overall this is a very good buy.READ FULL REVIEW
