    • Didn't even last 2 months

      I was thrilled when we received this computer and immediately set it up. For several weeks the computer worked fine and we enjoyed being able to do normal PC functions including video, web, etc. That was until one day the computer refused to boot. We had the computer just over seven weeks before the system failed. We took it in to get checked on and the hard drive had crashed, loosing all information with the only option being replacing it an all the software we had purchased. Now it is after the 30-day return AND of course we have opened it so that nulls the policy. Needless to say, I will not purchase electronics here again.

    • Dell GX520 80GB computer

      The computer will not shut down manually, must pull the power. When attempting to load from disc, I have to open the program on the disc manually and select auto run. The machine is very very noise when loading a program disc. The case shows some very rough handling. You would think these problems would be detected before sold

    • Great Base Level Product

      No problems with startup, where this unit was easily "plug & play". Purchased this unit for my mother, who needs some power for pics, emails and Skype, but more for reliability and this unit has proven to meet that need. I would recommend and would purchase again.

    • Computer - Dell

      This computer came ready to plug in and use right out the box. No Setup, no CD needed to install anything. Just a joy and it performs as advertised.

    • good replacement for older desktop

      Ordered this to replace a 10 yr old Dell desktop that died recently. It performs better than the old one, although it is slower than my new laptop, but I expected that based on the specs. It was not difficult to hook up and so far we are pleased with the performance. We have been using it for 3 weeks and not had any major issues.

      • Thank you for your question, rickanna. You would contact at 1-800-843-2446, as we are the distributor. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us.

    • No audio! No sound coming from back speaker outlet or the front headphone outlet.

    • do you ship to Puerto Rico?

      • Hello tatin47, I'm sorry we do not ship to Puerto Rico. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Can we upgrade the RAM to 4GB, or use DDR3

      • Yes, this can be upgraded to 4GB of RAM.Thank you for your question. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

    • Could I replace the graphics card on this computer with a Nvidia graphics card? Would it fry?

      • CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA400 AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz Gaming Computer comes with the Nvidia graphics card Item #: 14858114. This Dell Small Form Factor computer comes with an Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, 80GB hard drive, CD-ROM optical drive, integrated Gigabit Ethernet LAN 10/100/1000 and the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit) operating system can be replaced with the Nvidia graphics card.

    • Will MS Word and Excel or a web browser come with the provided software?

      • Thank you for your question. While this item does come with Windows 7 Home Premium, unfortunately, it does not come with Microsoft Office; this software would need to be purchased separately.

    • Nowhere does it say wifi enabled, is it wifi enabled?

      • The built-in 10/100/1000 network card (NIC) I would have preferred a standalone card which could be swapped out, or a card that could be upgrade in the future via firmware. Preferably Intel, or 3Com. The NIC chip can be disabled via the BIOS. The eight USB version 2.0 ports (six in the back, two in the front) are a welcome addition especially the two in the front which are not hidden behind an annoying hinged door and by using one of the USB ports you can use the Actiontec 802AIN Wireless N USB Network Adapter and have wireless wifi.

    • What is the hard drive interface SATA or IDE?

    • Will I need to buy speakers for this or is it included ?

      • they are not included, Included items: Computer system, Keyboard, Mouse, Power cord and Windows 7 Home Premium (32-Bits) Installation CD

    • i do not want to use windows or mac osx i use only linux distrobutions is it possible to purchase one without buying an operating system ?

      • The operating system has already been added to the computer; we cannot sell you the computer without the operating system.

    • Second question. This one¬ís tricky: I don't really want to re-install all my programs and files, so if I clone my existing hard drive to the HD that comes with this unit, can I then use the Win7 Installation CD to upgrade from my existing Win2000 operating system?

      • You cannot upgrade directly from WIN 2000 to Win 7 with the CD that comes with the computer. Win 7 has to be installed from scratch. So that will not work.

    • The product description lists "CD-ROM", yet a previous question referred to an R/W DVD. Can you clarify what optical drive comes with this unit? Thanks...

    • will the cd/dvd read and write
