no video card...i'm sure the mobo is a cheap-o POS....same thing with RAM.

pre-builts are only good when you're buying from someone that built it custom :|

It doesn't even have dedicated graphics. Don't buy this. Even if you are just going to be surfing the web and watching movies or something occasionally, this is a ripoff. Ya the cpu is pretty decent but everything else pretty much sucks. Build yourself a good quality rig.

I think somebody should make a sticky about pre-builts never being a good deal. So many people ask that same quesion "is this a good deal" and 9999 times out of 10000 (i wanted to leave room for the one extremely rare exception) its not a good deal.

Ya the only deal I saw that was decent was that Cyberpower PC, the Core i7 starter rig fr $799.. and even then the system is lacking
