First of all I have to say that this computer was a great buy for the money. If you are looking for a decent computer on a budget, this is the one for you. It's got a fairly fast processor (AMD 3800+), CD/DVD read/write drive with light-scribe, and pretty good sound/video card (Nvidia Geforce 6150SE). I love how it has a headphones jack on the front of the computer as well as two USB ports for quick access. Another cool feature it has is the ability to change the speaker, mic and line in jacks into 5.1 surround jacks. Very cool. This computer is a fairly powerful computer as is, without any upgrades.

There are only two things I needed to change immedietaly with this computer. First of all was Vista. Vista is in my opinion a DOWNGRADE from XP. I think XP is a much better and stable operating system. Also the amount of RAM that came with this computer was very low - 512MB. This is barely enough to run Vista at all. After adding in another GB of RAM and switching to XP, this computer is great. Will run most new games, except the very high demanding ones, in which case the graphics card has some trouble running them.

Overall a great computer for the price.
