The HP Pavilion Elite HPE-500z Series includes desktops geared for users looking to watch high definition videos, listen to quality music, and play vivid HD games. In particular, it comes with an entry-level AMD Radeon graphics chip, but it supports an optional midgrade Nvidia GeForce module that’ll allow users to watch Blu-ray films without experiencing blurs and, more importantly, access the latest video games like Grand Theft Auto 4 and Crysis. Core to the HP HPE-500z Series desktops are their CPU and memory. In particular, they support four and six-core processors for sleek and undisturbed data processing, and they support 64-bit DDR3 system memory for ultra fast data transfer rates. What separates these desktops from competitors, however, is its support for optional components like a tuner for watching TV, a Blu-ray drive for watching films, and included software so users can make their own videos and then edit them.
