  • Summary: Just to give you an idea on how much I have modified this computer, here's a list of what I have added/replaced: AMD Phenom II 940 Processor CoolerMaster 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Corsair 750w Power Supply Diamond ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Sound Card Dynex (Best Buy)...
  • Pros: I have now unlocked most of the potential of this system by upgrading the power supply to this Corsair 750 watt, installing a brand-new AMD Phenom II 940 processor, and finally getting a Diamond Radeon HD 4850 512 MB (the Sapphire 1 GB one wasn't available anywhere when I upgraded).

  • Cons: Integrated graphics, but the ATI Radeon HD 3200 is one of the best INTEGRATED solutions on the market currently (which sounds ironic, but true) No FM radio tuner on the TV tuner card, but that's why I have a separate radio in the room. Mouse isn't wireless, but I didn't really care. No wireless i...
