After Tech Support
Pros: Inexpensive, good processor and graphics card for the price. After some contact with tech support and a few workarounds it is functioning pretty well (see below)
Cons: video card was loose and sometimes causing failure (easy to fix at least) and the front panel sound was shorting out the back sound. (see below)
Overall Review: I would just like to follow up to my original post. After seeing the post on newegg, their tech people contacted me and apologized for the long wait when I first called (on weekends they only have 2 guys working). The front panel's sound was not working, when we unplugged it from the mother board, the back sound worked fine. They have sent me a replacement front panel suspecting a short or something. The video card was a bit loose and was causing problems, but I was able to fix that without much hassle while I was unplugging the sound. A few issues, but I was glad to see they are willing to stand by their product to make sure their customers are satisfied. I would give it a 5, but I have not yet received the replacement parts yet to know for sure if it is resolved, but I feel much better about the purchase than day 1 when it didn't work and couldnt get through to tech support.
