The great things were that the computer runs very well.

Match this up to any similarly priced HP or Alienware and it will destroy the competition in performance and spec.

After this experience, we'll never buy anything from this company.

compare to the old pc i built 3 yrs ago (dual core), i needed a powerful machine for Film Production, CGI and VFX. This so far came the best, right budget and heavy duty rams with cores. I advice people in my field to do more research when buying a mighty power PC for media. You cant go wrong with Intel, i7 Core, GHz, and ram of 32GB. Its fast, its neat, it has good rendering timing.

I am getting hang with my lovely ASUS PC. I also tried games like StarCraft 2, and it was sexy in graphic. I have render works using MAYA, 3d Max, C4D and AE. Its perfect.

I ordered this 2 days ago and it just arrived. This is my first review of it having only had it for a day:

32 GB RAM
Ivy Bridge motherboard + i7
GT 650 vid card.

Kind of stuff I do: 3D design, 2D game graphics, professional level audio processing (Pro Tools). I do love to game and it varies from the latest 3D games to more niche oriented 2D historical simulations.

The packaging seemed pretty standard but well done.

I love the fact that this computer looks so modest yet has such quality inside.

The video card is a GTX 650 - a game worthy card. I wasn't sure what to expect here as the spec listed it as simply a GT650.

The system is very quiet! Great for creative types like me.

Had no issues on initial startup, setup, nor with any updates that followed.

The system has been up and running for about 8 hours and it's pretty cool. I don't feel any heat buildup on the exterior of the case.

The top of the case has a stylized curvature to it - but it has a flat recessed area that is the perfect size for a stack of DVD cases, an iPhone dock, USB drives, etc. Very convenient.

The angled USB and audio ports on the front are conveniently located at the top of the case.

Some reviewers remarked about the extra software but I did not find the ASUS to be anywhere near being overloaded with bloat ware - certainly nothing even close to the confusing mess of software that other major pc makers have (HP comes to mind).

In fact ASUS' AI Suite is a great little utility - it tells me what my BIOS version is (it was loaded with the latest revision 7030), it can also measure temp, speed, etc. I think I will be using this a lot.

revisited see Updates.I was looking for 32 GB Ram and an i7 processor out of the box. bingo, I win. I needed this for video editing with premiere and vegas and some after effects projects. the gtx650 graphics card has cuda which speeds everything along and the 32 Gb ram.Everything says fast. from the i7 topping out at 3.9 (normal 3.4) to the usb 3.0, 32GB Ram and the sata 6.0. Reminds me of the speed I got from my Boxx workstation when i got it in 2007, but that was $4000.00. A Boxx today could smoke this asus but at 4x the cost. not in my budget. I did contact Asus and adding Hard Drives does not void your warranty. This was a big deal to me before I bought this. Buying a computer, stock off the shelf with 32 GB ram is nearly unheard of today. but you wait, in three years it'll be normal. To speed it more...I installed my SanDisk Ready-Cache 32 bit ssd drive in the second optical drive bay. And a fast WD caviar black in the second drive bay for my media drive. as most computers these day there is a recovery partition instead of a recovery dvd. I would say the only con on this is that the c: system partition is only 150 GB and the D: is the balance of the 1TB drive. I had to go into the cmos and change the boot order when I wanted to boot from a cd. such as restoring an image with Western Digitals version of Acronis Image. hich you can only use if you install a Western Digital drive. Definitely a bargain for a video Editing/Gaming Powerhouse just under one thousand dollars .
Update: 5 star to 1 star.
Twice it broke in two months. Ive lost my love of asus and this system. Because of support policies. first my motherboard sound, then my dvd burner.

This computer is incredibly fast. Core i7 with 32GB Ram. I chose this computer because I wanted something fast and reliable. Asus makes a great computer and this one is the latest. Keep in mind this one does not have wifi or blueray built in. Thise things can be added, I wanted the 32GB.

However, this thing doesn't have wifi built-in for some goodness-only-knows reason. Don't fear, though. You can purchase a $20 USB WIFI piece so you don't have to crack the case and void your warranty.

I purchased mine in person very recently, but so far I am not disappointed...

...with the overall product...

except...

...it comes with Windows 8 installed. And no one is overjoyed with Windows 8. But it is only software and I can fix that!

The great things were that the computer runs very well. Shipping was very quick. The one con I could possibly say is that when I went over the qualities of the tower before I purchased it I was a bit mislead that the desktop came with WIFI. It didnt, so I had to purchase additional software and install it. This may not sound to bad. . . but its a big issue because in order to install the WIFI ASUS forces you to break off a steel shield and right next to it ASUS states your warranty is void as soon as you install alien hardware. . . . so now i have no warranty.
