Most Favorable Review

Fantastic and cheap

EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 02G-P3-1559-KR
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 02G-P3-1559-KR

Pros: Can play almost every game maxed out, except the really demanding ones I only get around 20-30 fps, but can easily go up to 40-50 on the second highest settings in those circumstances

Cons: None as of yet

Overall Review: A bit hot. I'm not very knowledgeable about hardware, so I was worried when it started reaching temp's of around 65-70 under load. But apparently, its normal and theres nothing to worry about

Most Critical Review

Runs well, but had to get a replacement

ABS Gladiator Gaming PC - Intel i7 12700KF - GeForce RTX 3070 - G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB DDR4 3200 MHz - 1TB Intel M.2 NVMe SSD

Pros: Overall its very nice and runs great. Super quiet and the rtx3070 handles playing most of my game library at max settings.

Cons: I had to get a replacement the first time around because the GPU was dead/having issues. After receiving the replacement it was clear that what they sent me the first time was either refurbished or previously used. Some of the screws in the case on the first PC were missing (which I only noticed after I got the replacement), as well as some of the cabling was just stuffed in places. The packaging inside the case was also haphazardly stuffed inside in a way that made it really difficult to remove without breaking anything, and the box that the replacement came in was way more official than the original brown cardboard box. None of these things are a complaint in themselves, but just proved to me that it wasn't brand new. Which is a bit disappointing for the price point. Also in both cases the CPU fan light doesn't seem to function. But I'll have to look closer at the wiring to see if that can be fixed.

Overall Review: Overall I would say its a great machine, and its definitely worth the price when its on sale. I would just be aware that they might not send you something new and it may have issues.

Bad
