I was puzzled by the same question; and my only answer would be: 2x4Gb + 1x2Gb
If they invented 3x3.33Gb I would not be amazed at this new trick to steal 0.01Gb from the customers... bounce

I have this PC, it's awesome. I installed an EVGA GTX 660 in it (I upgraded my 300 watt psu to a corsair 500 watt psu too) and it's amazing. Looks damn sexy too.

Does the video card on either machine support dual monitors? (DVI)
They do. You will need an HDMI to DVI adapter to suppport two DVI connections. Those are about $2 from a place like eBay or Meritline.

As the poster above stated, 99% chance it's 4GB+4GB+2GB. It could, theoretically be 8GB+1GB+1GB, but I very seriously doubt it.

Nice powerful machine, you would not save much at all building one yourself.
True about the difference between this pre-built and a home-brew. Probably not much savings up front, if at all.

BUT: I've bought only two pre-made desktops since I got my first PC about 1989. The other I bought in January 2006 was a Compaq/HP Pavilion model 1750??? I bought as a closeout at CompUSA for ~~$130 after multiple rebates, all rebates came in good!

For both PCs, there was very little that could be upgraded. The mobo BIOS's were limited in what could be upgraded. On the 1989 PC, I ran statistical software on the 386-20 that would be speeded up dramatically with a math co-processor. There was a place for one on the MoBo, but it was disabled!

For example with the newer desktop, the MoBo from the 2005 limited the CPU to the AMD Sempron. It ran about 2.3Ghz, if my poor memory recalls correctly. The BIOS entries for the acceptable CPU registers were also disabled! The Sempron single core 2.3 Ghz was all that would work.

In both situations, the only way to upgrade was to buy a new PC.

Spring 2008 I bought two rather high quality MoBos, first a P-35 based, the second a P-45 based. I still use both, one for a HTPC, the other is my current desktop.

Of course, they are limited to SATA-II drives, I think 16GB RAM, and pre-sandy bridge CPUs. But the home-brew PCs are great with watching/recording videos, web-browsing, light gaming, so on.

I'll probably keep the two PCs for several more years.

Buying higher quality non-proprietary and upgradeable hardware that is very flexible really pays off in the long run. Pre-built/pre-configured are often built with specific parts that only work together.

I'll never buy another pre-built desktop. wave

Yes.

The GT630 is almost as bad as the 7570. For any serious gaming you'd have to replace either.

The 600W power supply is good as is the BluRay and liquid cooling. If you need them then go for it.

Looks like they are clearing out the machines with 3rd gen Intel chips before the new 4th gen Haswell chips come out in a week or so. Decent deal. There should be even more deals over the next few weeks.

It is a crime to buy a PC today without an SSD. If you are not going to buy a PC with one already installed, make sure you buy a small one and install the OS on it. You will never want to go back to a PC without an SSD once you install once. Easily the most important upgrade you can make and it will show.

I see the appeal of the h9 configuration and would have no problem recommending it for anyone who wants a pre-installed Blu-Ray drive and the bigger hard drive and is willing to give up the Adobe Premier bundle.

The real decision point here is: which features do you really need?

Most of the other differences don't really matter. The graphics card swap is a wash in terms of performance. The liquid cooling does not add much practical value as the CPU is locked. I don't know for sure, but the 600W power supply may not have the extra connectors you will need for a higher-end graphics card.

HP is probably one of the worst companies when it comes to reliability
I've been working as a tech in a repair shop for a couple of months now and I've seen so many HP computers come in with hardware issues.
Whether it's HDD (I know not their fault directly) or motherboard or PSU
HP comprises about 50-80% of the computers that we work on at the shop
I've seen some laptops that looked new and were thrown into the recycling just cause it's more expensive to fix than to get a new one
Anyway, I don't hate HP or anything... I just want to let people know about this
Their PCs might have gotten better since the Vista/7 years, but I personally would not buy one for myself or friends and family

Rock solid. I added a new PSU for my XFX AMD Radeon HD 6770 Graphics Card.

HP had a problem with their MB's on the e9280t but they got that fixed before I bought it.

HP email support has been great.

I also have a laptop that is fine.
