Summary: Its been over six years since I've owned a desktop and wanted to get back into pc gaming. I was looking for a gaming computer that was top of the line that I didn't have to give an arm and a leg for. I found it! Its a great system and you cant beat the price! The game I bought it for was Planetside 2. The game on maxed out settings runs at 40 fps when there's a lot of action happening.
Summary: we use dell for all the workstations (excluding mine, sorry ;) ) normally little problems on the hardware, although I had a serie that had problems on the board. dell replaced all the boards, no problem. it must have been in the early days of XP.
Summary: The OptiPlex 9010 is a great system. The i7 rocks, and standard USB 3.0 is nice!!! Very cost effective as well. We have been using the OptiPlex line for years and have been very happy with it.
