            This computer is mainly used for gaming (both online and disk games). Performance wasn't the greatest. After running diagnostics and determining the memory was lacking, I purchased additional memory. The cards were easy to install and the PC is smoking fast now!

                My pc does run somewhat faster since in installed the 2 1-gig memory sticks (was 2 512-meg sticks).
                It was also very affordable.
