Cons

Several users report total unit malfunction without posting beep in as little as 8 months - users must be careful of power supply when upgrading multiple components

1 agrees

Stock ATI Radeon chipset leaves something to be desired visually - many users will seek more powerful video rendering options, and will likely spend more than $100 on a better component
