Summary: It's a decent price, and does the job well enough. I purchased this computer as a tide-over until I could upgrade it, considering I've gone crazy and gotten sick of having horrible PC graphics and yet I love PC gaming. So this review is mostly focused around PC gaming. PROS: -Great CPU -windows 8 (it's really not that bad) -tons of space (eventually you'll have to move programs to D:) -Decent graphics card -mine hasn't overheated or ran into any of the issues plaguing a...

Summary: At 100% Load 24hrs a day this computer has been 100% stable. I am running a dual boot of Ubuntu 14.10 and Windows 10 Developer Preview. My primary complaint is that stock cooling is not sufficient for high-load applications. The only fans are a small CPU HSF (very loud at high load), and a small PSU fan. I recommend the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU cooler to replace the stock HSF, the TX3 is one of the biggest heatsinks that will fit in this case with the side panel on.
Summary: After a little over a year now. I am having same problem so many others seem to be having. Defective video card, fan failed and over heated. Was having other problems before, had to re format 3 times over the year. When operating it was a good system. With all the problems it is just not operating enough. Very disappointed too short of problem free run, to think about ASUS products again. Now to try and repair a broken computer after only 13 months of use.
Summary: I had the same issues, and finally found a (relatively) simple fix... Problem: the GPU fan stops spinning, causing the graphics card to overheat and the computer to shut down. You can verify this by opening the case and visually checking the fan (DON'T DO THIS UNLESS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE VOIDING YOUR WARRANTY!), or installing MSI Afterburner, which will monitor your fan speed and GPU temperature.

Summary: This is a terrible machine. I've had a for a year and it now reboots itself after 10-15 min on its own. I've formatted it twice and problem continues, my assumption is its due to hardware failure (I don't know for sure). I recommend not purchasing this and going with something more reliable.
Summary: you should read my advice if you are deciding to buy this. first of all when I got this item, it shipped with sloppy package. it just looks like a garbage,and as I expected it was already damaged. when I was trying to use this pc, It automatically shut down it self after 10 min and didn't get power back I dont recommand to buy this items..
Summary: I bought this PC to do some school work and at first glance it looked really good. Ran all my programs well and ran games great. But after only a few months it started giving me trouble. The computer would turn off randomly for no reason. It got so bad that I could only have it run for two mins at a time before it would shut off. When I looked into what was casing it i learned that the fan in the graphics card was dying.
Summary: I bought this computer June 2013. I had faith in ASUS knowing it as a company that made excellent computer parts in my youth. This was the first ASUS computer I ever bought, and will probably be the last. The computer performed well for the first few months although I did find the VGA card to be rather underpowered for what it claimed to be.
Summary: I bought this last April 2014 and after a year, it re-boots by itself. I chose this computer because of good reviews and cheap price. I should have read the negative reviews on this product. This is the first and last ASUS product for me. There is a reason why they sell this cheap. People, you've been warned. WORST COMPUTER EVER!
