Pros: Certain games that do not crash like NBA 2k13 work well and frame rates are high.
Cons: BF3 and Batman Arkham City keep crashing. I get the following error on my event log

Faulting package full name:
I have upgraded and downgraded drivers and nothing works. I just opened an RMA and now stuck without a video card.
Other Thoughts: This card gets good reviews and that is why I purchased it. Wish it worked, it would have been a keeper.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful screen and a great dedicated video card. The sound wasn't so bad once you updated the driver and the computer ran at a very good temperature, even while gaming. Also, DDR3 memory and DDR3 Video Card memory.
Cons: I had received my computer during my winter break after the fall semester and noticed the computer would randomly freeze. I was busy during the break because i was moving into a new apartment and didn't use it at all the first 3 weeks of having the computer. I assumed it must have been faulty drivers or the bloat ware that was causing it. I updated the OS to Windows 7 Ultimate and noticed the same problem persisted, i quickly did another reformat with windows 7 Ultimate and it did not have an issue. This only lasted for 4-5 days and the freezing continued. I Quickly called New Egg and they gave me an RMA and i literally sent the machine back on the final day of my 30 day replacement policy.
New Egg took a while to process the RMA, which is dissapointing, but they offered a refund because the computer was not out of stock. I upgraded and bought the ASUS N61JQ with an i7 processor, hopefully the Asus lives up to the great potential. But i must admit, i will miss the 18 inche screen!
Other Thoughts: I had purchased the computer and had it mailed to my Apt. in New York in stead of my Apt. in Michigan ( i go to school there) because of winter break. I received the computer literally the next business day without having to purchase next day delivery. New Egg is great when it comes to shipping your productREAD FULL REVIEW
