My System Specs


Nice review.

As a pure gaming machine, it seems hit all the check marks. Decent display, good sound, and a beast of a graphics chip. The fact that they put in a Richland APU to cut costs doesn't really enter into the equation until you start running applications other than games.

If I was looking for a desktop replacement purely to play games, and I would definitely be looking at this machine, mainly because of the GPU they can afford to put in there.
