My own computer use does not include any heavy duty gaming, so I can't provide any insight on performance from that perspective. However, my job is in computer graphics, and from that perspective, I can say this is a heck of a nice computer. Photoshop really zips on this thing, and my initial experiments with Premiere, Flash Pro, VirtualDubMod, and Pinnacle all look very good in terms of speed. I don't have any major complaints so far with the hardware.
The downside to any HP computer is that this manufacturer is the worst purveyor of absolute junk software, not to mention loads of demo garbageware from various payola agreements they've signed. If you buy this or any other HP computer, and if you really care about its software environment, hop online and look for any guides you can find that describe how to remove and disable HP junk and garbageware. Plan on spending a full day cleaning the computer out. Then replace everything, especially the worthless HP software, with highly regarded opensource programs downloadable from CNET and other reputable sites.
As for Windows 7, while the new operating system is not without a ton of annoyances, it is a reasonable improvement over Vista. First thing I did is kill the notorious User Account Control (UAC), although you need to know what you're doing if you take drastic measures like that. UAC is the amusing little system that confirms you really want to do whatever you just did, forcing you to click "OK" over and over as you try to actually use the computer. What a joy! I spent another full day changing Windows settings, trying to figure out where Microsoft hid certain features, and dumping much of the helpful (intrusive) trash that comes preconfigured with this operating system. It would be nice if Windows would just stay the heck out of the way.
So my four stars go to RAM and AMD, none to HP or Microsoft.
Picked this one up from a retailer in a combo deal for $699 with 21" monitor plus a 3 year extended warranty. Connected to internet with no problems, configured the wireless connection with no problem, etc. Mail client is acceptable. Windows 7 is vast improvement over Vista. First thing I did was remove Norton and some other preloaded junk and installed a set of free antivirus/antispyware packages available for free on-line. Runs quickly, while the video is shared, if you are not running any graphic intensive video games, it is good enough. DVDs and HiDef runs smoothly.
For the money, 8gb ram, 1Tb HD, with 2.8 quad processor not bad. Your ability to expand is somewhat limited due to only having a 300 watt power supply, so if you do add a video card, you probably need to upgrade PS also. I added a second DVD drive with minimal effort. Will add a second HD in near future, beyond that I see no need for anything more for my use.
My daughter told me to get 8MB Ram so that it will handle everthing and it does.
The price was great and I am very satisfied with it. My only problem is adapting
from XP to 7.
I have recently added a blue ray burner and upgraded the video card. The power supply is holding up good. Known issues have been documented by HP and patches can be found on the product website.
If you are in the market for a good desktop that is scaleable (future proof) this is the one.. with the AM3 motherboard and the DDR3 architecture and preloaded with 8GB of RAM
However, I wanted to switch to an SSD and keep the old HDD as a backup. No-can-do while still having access to the DVD drive (3 SATA devices, 2 SATA channels). Now, with a new motherboard, new SSD boot drive, new case fan (quieter), new CPU cooler (much quieter).... well, it's not really the same computer anymore is it?
Over Christmas I will put in a new power supply and new graphics card. So, I'll be using the original case and CPU. But, it runs like lightning for me. The SSD makes windows boot so fast, it should be illegal.
