Whats with all the negativity?
Pros: I dont know where all this negativity came from with Vista, maybe it was just early on. I installed it and within an hour i was online and surfing and having zero problems. All drivers installed no problem. Digital camera, wireless keyboard/mouse, and everything else. My old games like Warcraft 3, 2, Civ2, Starcraft etc all worked flawlessly. Goes without saying so did my newer ones. Since mostly what i do is surf and game, and so far it has not had a problem doing either one, 5 stars for Vista with SP1.
Cons: All the security! but, like any good OS, i turned it all off and has not had a problem with those pop-ups since asking me if i wanna continue with what i just clicked.
Overall Review: I am a tech support for a major company, and what ive found is most people who do not like Vista, are new to computers. I wouldnt recommend Vista to someone as their first computer. It can be a little frustrating if you dont know how to turn on and turn off all the little features some more knowledgeable people may not need.
Pros: Kicks the face off of anything I throw at it. Running Crysis on full settings everything High. Runs it without any problems. Just plain dominates it.
Cons: Price? When i bought it, it was 289.99 and later that day, litteratly a few hours later, it dropped to 279.99. Newegg was nice and refunded me the 10 dollars, and that was nice of them. Later that week it dropped again!
Overall Review: Its HUGE! So make sure you have a case thats going to fit it. Its about 11 inches long. Its not a bad thing, i made sure i had a sweet case ready for it :) Might even buy a 2nd one!
So far so good!
Pros: Everything is doing what it should be. Hooked up my old HDD, my new HDD, and everything between with zero errors. Installed Vista 64bit and it runs beautifully. Read all memory and processors right away. Looks great! ASUS never lets me down.
Cons: None so far!
Overall Review: Running an intel 2.4ghz dualcore processor, 4gigs of memory with Vista 64bit, EVGA GTX 260.
