Default What do you think..?

Just want to know your opinions on this PC, in my opinion I think this is pretty good value.

I will buy a top of the range graphics card to fit in the PCI-E slot as soon as I buy it.

When I read the more info link it doesn't say it has a AGP slot or PCI-X 16 slot. All that power with an integrated video card, no wonder it s cheap. It's a good deal IMO, to buy as a christmas present.

It isnt that great. If your capable i would build one yourself and not only do you get the pride of building it you will most like have better performance w/ the money you spend.

I might do, but i'll have to watch some videos or read some manuals on how to fit the mobo, because im not 100% sure how to do it.

you dont think you can build yourself a computer......just read throught some tutorials, what i did was look throught an old computer and play around with the stuff so i can get used to it. always ground yourself, ( but i dont get the point of wasting 11 dollars on a anti-static wrist band) and go right ahead. i think most people built their computer in their teens.

when i thought about building a computer i read throught this and i got more info on how to build a computer

the computer in my sig is my first computer build and not my last
