Awesome machine after a couple upgrades. Still cheaper than the alternative Ok Guys, I’ve had this machine for about 2 weeks now and I’ve come to the conclusion that I love it. I’m coming from an Intel Core Q6600, so this was a big jump forward. I think this machine will last for the long haul just like my Dell Inspiron 530 did (Since 2008).On to the good stuff:I took this out of the box (I did make an unboxing video if anyone is interested EDIT: https://youtu.be/tTEnfK4jN3s), hooked up my monitor and the included keyboard/mouse.

If you want to know how to do it, read on…Most of these Cons don’t really matter for general users. They only bug the more experienced people.Now that the cons are out of the way, let’s explain why this desktop make sense. The CPU is the latest generation. My thought was, if I build a computer, I…
