XFX Radeon HD 6450 DirectX 11 HD-645X-YNH2 512MB 32-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: The 6450 is a great HTPC card, and the price after rebate is good

Cons: This card, even with the low-profile bracket will not fit in my Lian Li PC-C37B HTPC case.
The heatsink rises above the top of the pc board on this card.
Dont know how they can call it low-profile ready, if it doesn't fit in low-profile cases.

HP Compaq Desktop PC dx2300(RT953UT#ABA) Pentium Dual Core E2160 (1.80 GHz) 512 MB DDR2 80 GB HDD Intel GMA 3000 Windows XP Professional

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Was VERY suprised ( in a good way ) the system did not come loaded with bloatware that I needed to un-install.
Matter of fact, the only icon on the desktop was the recycle bin !
Made my job a ton easier.
System is fast ( for business use ), and quiet.
Very happy so far.

Cons: Only comes with 512 Meg of ram, but DDR2 is dirt cheap.
I threw a 1 gig stick in it, and all is good.

Other Thoughts: Much happier with this unit than the Acer's I've bought in the past. The Acer's aren't bad computers, they just come with a TON of bloatware that needs to be un-installed.

This HP is a nice, in-expensive, dual-core workstation.

Pros: Compact, stable, relatively quiet, good price.

Cons: CD-Rom install is a major hassle.
The flimsy button on the front panel has to line up just perfectly to operate the door.
Requires WAY too much fine tuning of the placement of the CD-Rom.

Other Thoughts: Would of gave it 5 stars, but it took me about a dozen tries to get the CD-Rom lined up, and it still doesn't operate the door every time.
