Wow, wow, wow, wow...

 

Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow. and GET IT! Media Drive is a bit useless thou, bought a 500GB Media HDD and treat it like annother HDD. Installed a Nvidia 8500GT Graphics card and got a 500 watt PSU, 22" HP Monitor, Logitech 5.1 Speakers. Brings a tear...

Price, Quad-Core, PCI Express 16x, 8GB Max Ram, everthing is just beautiful. Would have expected to easily spend 2,000+ dolars for something like this

PSU is a little weak, but then again, it isnt hard to fix, and you still save a butload of money. HP's techincal support is exactly spectacular, but i dont really need them to begin with

Decent

 

The Q6600 proc is very stable and runs ice cold even with the stock heatsink. Case is good looking from the outside. Pricewise a very good buy

Inside tis case is a tangle of wires, very nasty. HP support is terrible

Amazing

 

I had to un-mount the hdd on the bottom of the case and take out the media drive bay and mount it there so I could fit my 8800 GTS and still have the TV tuner fit. But having said I've got a 8800 GTS and a 500w PSU running everything fine and...

Amazing.... Quad core, 3gb ram, 2x 320gb hdd. System performance in games is amazing, even having Vista

Size, its a rather small case, and you have to keep the TV tuner hooked up in order to power the system (front panel switches are hooked up via the tv tuner card). PSU is also weak @ 350w, and the integrated 7350 is okay

Great Little PC!

 

I couldn't believe the price of this PC for everything included. I added ATI 1650 Pro video card and did not have to upgrade PS. I also added a second DVD drive and now I have a very good PC for far less than what I would have expected to pay for these...

Quad core - 3 gb memory - 2/320 gb hard drives - lightscribe - tv tuner

weak video, cramped case

Excellent for the money

 

Unless you're willing to settle with a 85000GT(which is what I did), you will need to upgrade the power supply. After upgrading to it, I was running everything on highest settings. No compatibility issues wih Ubuntu 7.04 64bit.

Quad Core, 3GB of dual channel RAM, quiet, very cool(30-40c). 2 hard drives and an easy program to configure them to raid if you want. Very cheap considering its a quad core. Decent graphics card(7350LE), running Half Life 2 on low settings with...

Vista included. Graphics card needs an update. Power supply is only 350W

HP Support Sucks

 

I bought this computer the first day it was out. From the first it didn't work right. My emails looked like some foreign language with missing letters in the words. After the hundredth email I had to retype, I threw the keyboard across the room. When ...

It is fast, and good enough for what I do. Plenty of storage.

Support is terrible. Keyboard is worse.

One of the best pre-configured PCs on the market today

 

Well this is my 3rd desktop PC and I'm absolutely happy with it. The first thing I done after turning it on was re-configuring hard drives to RAID 0 array for 2x data transfer rate performance; I have also re-installed Windows Vista from scratch (you ...

Core 2 Quad CPU ; 3Gb RAM ; Two 320Gb SATA Drives ; HDTV Tuner

Graphics card is good for Vista Aero but slow for modern 3-D games
