"Good for the price, lackluster for the long-run."4.0 starson by AsaLothario
Pros: Low price for decent performance. I'm using it now, and it's doing okay. It seems to run low & mid-end games just fine. Surfing the internet? Not a problem!
Cons: You may wind up reformatting this thing when your HD space gets cluttered. The video card is on-board, so the defaulted 1GB worth of memory will wear out easily when you're playing higher-end games.
Summary: I had a few problems trying to upgrade the RAM on this computer. It is defaulted to 1GB, and upgrading it to 2GB failed for whatever reason. If you want to play higher-end graphics games, it is strongly recommended to buy a video card for it as this on-board will only take you so far. "Team Fotress 2" in particular, gets about 30-45 FPS only with a new video card installed into the system. Fortunately, when it comes to video cards, this computer has space for a new one. I heard my system was upgradable to up to 2GB worth of memory, but I couldn't even run the computer with the appropriate memory sticks. I was able to at least get to the BIOS menu with 1.5GB ram though.. The bottom line is you can't expect a supercomputer at this price, but if you're just looking for something decent, I'd consider it.
