            I've been using ASUS components in building my own computers for over a decade. Had a troublesome motherboard once back in 2002 and they made it good within a week. This time I needed to upgrade everything so I purchased an ASUS CM6870. It is fast as all get out and has turned out to be everything I expected from this company. I am very happy with it.

                Comments about ASUS CM6870-US015S Desktop Computer:

                I ultimately decided to get this desktop because there weren't any laptops out there that I would have liked to buy within my price range. At this price, this mammoth of a desktop is hard to beat. I have never purchased from [*] before, so that added with no reviews for this product - it was hard to talk myself into getting this computer. However, I would do it time and time again! I'm extremely impressed with the pure hardware power that this computer has. It can do absolutely anything that I throw at it.If you are a gamer, this desktop will not let you down. The GT 620 isn't a top-end graphics card, but it will certainly get the job done. For an extra $140 bucks you can get a monstrous graphics card, and don't forget the $60+ for a power supply (this only comes with 300W)Lastly, the keyboard. It's not BAD, per se, but it's not the best keyboard. I think with the perfect product Asus has produced, the least they could do is provide a better keyboard. From everything to useful pre-installed software to a nice, quality built product, ASUS got it right. But this keyboard needs to be upgraded. It even has ghosting problems (multiple key-presses at once - mostly a gamer's problem).But, I would DEFINITELY recommend this product to anyone looking for a desktop for under $1000! The processor in this thing will never let you down, no matter what you do.
