I really dont understand the negative comments, i just bought this exact same model from my local MicroCenter for $999.99 and I love this Desktop. This thing is FAST. I upgraded the hard drive to my Crucial 256 GB m4 ssd and this thing is a speed demon. The graphics card runs games perfectly at high on my 25in hp 2511x 1080p monitor. Another great part about this is that it is SILENT, i was really surprised at this. The lights on the case make this look really nice and they can be turned on and off with the switch on the top.
I was checking the temps and they are no where near over heating levels even after gaming.
My Windows Experience Index rated this at:...(out of 7.9)
Processor:(i7 3770)- 7.7
Memory: - 7.7
Graphics: - 7.5
Gaming Graphics: - 7.5
Primary Hard Disk: - 7.9
The only negative with this desktop is the built in wireless. It needs some wiggling and adjustment to find its sweet spot but i just used an extra wireless n usb adapter i had and i have no problems. Other then the wireless this is a perfect computer, assuming you don't get a lemon.
I will update if anything else arises.
**UPDATE NOV.16 2012**
This thing is still going strong and ive had no problems.
Its still very quiet and powerful.
I ended up switching out the graphics card for an nvidia gtx 660, big improvement over the 7770. and i added a blu ray burner too. I Love this thing, and now being sold at around $750 its a steal!
