ASUS Desktop PC CM6870-CA001S Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40 GHz) 16 GB DDR3 2 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB Windows 8
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Great value (bought it refurbished for $600, have had no problems with the hardware). The processor and mobo alone would be worth the price, not to mention the big Hard Drive and 16 GB of RAM.
*Two PCI-Express x16 ports with Crossfire support (no SLI support, though).
*ASUS keyboard and mouse are good quality.
*Case uses normal size ATX power supplies, unlike many prebuilts from other brands (HP).
*I'm thinking this PC will last me for at least 4-5 years.

Cons: The cons are just nitpicks, really, but here we go:
*Don't update to Windows 8.1 with an ATI card (7870 Myst). After I did, I got a black screen after the windows logo and could not log on. Turns out this is a common problem and although updating drivers usually works, it didn't for me and I had to roll back to 8.0. Which shouldn't be so bad, except that 8.1 won't let you roll back easily (it's more like a new version rather than an upgrade), so everything I had installed was lost.
*Maybe it comes with a few extra programs that you won't use, nothing you can't uninstall.
*No PCI port. Could not install an old sound card I had. Onboard audio works well, though, haven't had any problems with games.
*No SLI support (but Crossfire IS supported)
*350 Watt power supply. Had to install my own to upgrade to an ATI HD7870 Myst. But the case fits a normal size ATX power supply so at least this was an option, unlike most HPs.
