Pros Future proof (and then some).
Two Blazing Video Cards
Really Clean Build
Cons Overclocked CPU, but still using ddr3-1333?
Questionable $/performance (even at $1800)
Summary Blazing Fast, but you could do better within this budget, starting with a ram upgrade that should only cost $40. A computer with 2/3 the muscle will play modern games on max settings.
Pros Had to have ten characters....
Cons Way too far over clocked for an 2nd gen i7. No need for two 100 dollar graphics card when one 200 dollar will out perform it. The price is way too high.
Summary If you build your own computer you can save yourself 1000 dollars and get better parts. I just recently built a new computer that will out-perform this by miles. Point being this computer sucks and you can really save yourself money.
Pros Parts were well assembled.
Cons No updates were done, parts not specified in build were cheap, loud and broke constantly. Customer service was ridiculously poor. I have the logs to prove it. Replacement parts were never sent.
Summary Would never recommend, not worth the money. Regret purchase, not sure why CNET recommended this. Would return this for money back if I could.
Pros Great gaming machine
Cons Noisy machine
Summary Overall a goo machine. A bit loud tho
