Yeah, not horrible when u have a compatible i5 or i7 chip needing a home. Discrete graphics helps a ton for CPU upgrades

Don't just look at the processor. It has a decent graphics card, hard drive, and other features. Thumbs up.

Yeah, guys it has a "Thermal Heat Sink." What more could you want? Perhaps TWO "Windows 64 Bit"? That makes the deal.

Ha ha, yeah - you wouldn't believe how many instances of "packing material" and "software" and "service software" I pruned from that list. Slightly ridiculous.

I think its a pretty good deal if I didn't get one earlier. At this price its kinda hard to make one yourself for that price. Then you have to factor in the nice design and warranty. Its perfect for lans and can hide just about anywhere due to its size.

If you're on a budget and won't upgrade this is pretty good.

However, in the past these have gone for $500-$600 (if not lower) with i7-3770's and a 330W power supply. You couldn't build an equivalent machine for that much if you bought this as a barebones to upgrade later.

So when something like this is "Refurbished," what are they usually refurbishing? I'm thinking of getting this just as a desktop to have in my room and do some light gaming on. Any comments?

I'm also in the market for a SERIOUS gaming desktop. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

this is a good price ONLY if you're using it as a family computer (web surfing, kids working on microsoft office, watching movie from it to ur tv, youtube, ect)

for gaming? don't waste your money on this.

Chipset Architecture
Intel® H61 Express Chipset

Motherboard Class
Mini-ITX Motherboard

-------------------

Almost worth buying this and transplanting the innards to an old ATX case.

how does that version of an i3 compare to the first version i7 920?

My dell xps desktop from 3.5 years ago has the i7, 8gb of ram, and a gtx 550 ti card...It isn't too high end but works very well for many things, although I haven't tried it with any new games.

I imagine this x51 would work well for lots of games, but not the newest intense ones...i'm not expert though!

I would go with Seasonic, Corsair, or Power PC for the power supply.
