Was cruising Ebay looking for a modest replacement machine something new with a warranty, was going to build another but at 73 getting lazy.  Was watching 5 various ones, doing a last minute check fell upon a tempting used one, threw a last 20 second bid in and much to my surprise won this!  $490.00 to my door very sweet deal.  I will more than likely clock it back to stock, though it will never get worked hard well unless the grand kids get to game on it.

I take it this PC isn't for gaming as there is no dedicated GPU in it?  This PC would make a great general home office computer.

It will not do much if any gaming maybe my grand son, graphics are suppose to be excellent out of the box according to reviews.  It has 2gig dedicated to the on board, none of the cards I have more than 1 gig so I doubt any change for now.

The machine showed up yesterday, unpacked it it looked like it was just assembled absolutely mint.  Gave the innards a good checking over today hooked it up it fired off perfect, it was clocked @ 4493 and running temps near 160F.  Shut it down and cleared the bios, now running @3600 and 114F.  Boots in under a minute with just the OS I am sure it will slow a bit when loaded up, super happy at this point.  It probably thinks it was put out to pasture, doubt it will ever work hard now.

Pretty much done setting it up, I followed all the tips for SSD's ended up with a 27 second full boot.  Davnel boots even quicker, have to find what other tweaks he did.
