i dont recommend getting an Acer. They are not the best quality, and customer service is so-so. I have dealt with Acer computers, and they aren't good. IF you are settling for a brand name PC, not custom-built, go for HP or Dell. They have many service centres and better support.

For the price, a custom built PC gets better bang for the buck.

emachines are Okay, but they are CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP. Im talking about quality, features, and support.

I think Dell has better systems than emachines


That system you showed me is an Aspire, a model that Acer makes.

Yes you can, as long as you plug all the headers in correctly.

I'd recommmend you choose your own parts, and get someone to build it for you.
monarchcomputer.com will build computers for you
