Pros: Price (compared to building and other options) and Asus Quality. Nice finish that doesn't look gimmicky and "gamerish" very fast Haswell H81 chipset with HDMI output. Room for Growth. Windows 7. Throw an SSD in this thing like I did and watch it fly.
Cons: motherboard supports dual channel memory but comes with one stick of 8gigs :sigh: I don't understand this 2x4 would eaper. no DVI port. small amount of usb outs and only 4 sata headers internally.actually be ch
Other Thoughts: I bought this computer for my Mother to retire an old worn dell pentium 4 running xp. She does mostly web browsing, excel, word processing and video editing small business home type of stuff. No real heavy lifting here. an i3 with 4 gigs ram would do the job but I wanted to future proof a little and get the horsepower of the i5 for video editing. I put in a Samsung 850 EVO and couldn't be happier with the performance. Newegg did a fantastic job getting this computer to us in time, as always they are wonderful.

Pros: Computer is good everything I thought it would be.
Cons: Never came with a windows 8.1 activation Code and the popup that reminds me to activate windows makes my games crash. Also the Windows 8.1 CD paper case things was already ripped open when i got it. Somewhat suspicious...

Cons: The description from Newegg said the back of the housing had 4 USB 2.0 ports and 2 USB 3.0 ports, plus 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front on the front.
Unfortunately, the back has only 3 USB ports, not 6 as advertised, and none are blue indicating USB 3.0. The two USB ports on the front are blue indicating USB 3.0.
Other Thoughts: This computer was purchased because my old computer crashed, so I do need to take the drive out of the old computer and get files off that old drive. Unfortunately this ASUS computer has a label over the cover saying that I will void the warranty if I remove the cover, thus they are effectively saying I should not try to connect the old drive to recover files. Hmmmm, guess which way I will go !!

Pros: Price Zero Bloat Ware Windows 7 Headset Jacks in the front
Cons: No dual video on MB, Half height slot for video card.
Other Thoughts: There are 4 memory 1/2 gig memory sticks filling all 4 slots, Great for a call center where used order connected to auto dialer system / soft phone and sales order placement . 2 Gigs ram actually runs lite apps on windows 7 smoothly. I ordered 5 systems, everything was good except only one mouse was broken. Minimal packaging.

Pros: Good price to performance, 80 bucks on sale, with free shipping. Web surfing, word processing and watching Videos. Win 7 activation was easy and accurate. Very quiet machine.
Cons: Some of the features are Non-standard such as the pin out on the power supply. No free memory slots as they are filled. No PATA for adding 'old' hard drives. Should it fail, unlikely to return, will just scrap it out for parts.
Other Thoughts: As others have said Get the windows activation Code off the side before assembling. Also the 125 or so Win 7 updates, takes a while to install.

Pros: Pros - Runs games amazingly for the price, I was expecting 30-40 on BF4 ultra, bu no, I get 60-100. Best computer for a budget.. Fast speeds with this 8-core processor.
Cons: Cons - The wifi card is absolutley terrible. I was reading reviews and they were all like "Wifi card is bad" And i thought to myself, that I can just get ethernet.. I got ethernet, and ran a speed test.. I got 1 ping, 60 up/60 down.. Then I go to download a program or a file, and a 10MB file takes over 50 Hours. My other PC does not do this. The Internet on this thing is terrible
Other Thoughts: Great PC overall, just think that the wifi card needs to be better. UI could not use this pc for 2 weeks until I made time to get an extender and ethernet, which barely mae a difference.

Really fast, but minor issues: likes to turn itself on.
Pros: - Really fast, 9 second boot up is super nice. - Crushes PC games, looks amazing. - The included keyboard and mouse aren't awful. - Attractive computer. - Easy to get inside to the components
Cons: - Included wireless dongle inside the machine has issues with my network - Turns itself on. Can't figure out why. I have disabled all Wake on LAN and Wake on Wireless. Turned off some included Intel update stuff in Task Scheduler and still turns itself on. - ibuypower tech support is pretty terrible. Their website forum is a ghosttown and their email support has been hit and miss.
Other Thoughts: This is a fast gaming PC and pretty good deal for the money, especially if you got it on sale. But has some odd tech issues. The wireless dongle included only picks up my Network as "Limited" and tech support hasn't been helpful in solving the issue. Puts some bloatware on the computer. The computer turns itself on every few days and I can't solve the problem. Turned off Wake on functions and found some Intel bloatware that was updating stuff and possibly turning on the PC and deleted that and it still came on. Again tech support not super helpful so far.
