My very first (and current) PC. I bought this pre-built a year ago. The PSU has fused once, and the Mobo power connector has broken once. The Mobo was under warranty, so that go fixed, but I had to buy another PSU. Other than that, its okay I guess. The temperatures can run pretty high, around 60-70 C, so I'm thinking of getting an aftermarket cooler. Ah well, at least I learned my lesson. Didn't even have access to an internet connection a year ago.
Oh, and if you guys see anything that needs immediate upgrading (except the RAM) feel free to let me know. I know I got ripped off big time, but I wanna salvage what I can. That and I would love to build my own PC, but being a highschooler doesn't exactly help..... my parents would flip out if they saw me building another PC after barely a year of owning the first one.
In actuality - I only spent around $590 on this PC after owning it for one and a half years. This includes replacing the PSU once & getting an extra stick of RAM, to bring the grand total to 4GBs.
