Default HP AMD Phenom™ Desktop 2.20GHz, 640GB HD, 24" LCD

I'm new here and need some advice, I am finally getting a new PC, this old VPR Matrix is about to die on me and I found this model that I like but I have never owned a PC with an AMD processor and would like to know if you guys think this pc is what I should get. It's priced right and I really like it but before I spend that much, I need to know if this is worth the money. BTW, I do some 3d work so I need the extra RAM. Thanks.

Considering that your getting a nice 24" LCD monitor with that system, that's a right smart deal. It should serve you well for what you are planning to do with it.

I wouldn't get Acer or Gateway. They are renowned for their bad support.

Get the HP. HPs aren't all that bad, and that's an amazing deal.

Let's see, if you were building that yourself:
Phenom - $200
Monitor - $500
5 gigs of RAM - $125
Hard drives - $200
Vista - $150

That's almost $1,200 right there, not to mention graphics card, DVD drive, motherboard, case, keyboard, mouse, wireless, memory card reader...

I'd definitely go for it. The only thing I'd say is in the future consider upgrading the video card, but the rest looks great.

Go for it.

These newer bundles are getting more and more affordable. You just can't go wrong with it.

I'm pro-HP on this one, that's a BA system, and I admire HP for using AMD/ATI regardless of what the seemingly countless Intel fanboys say about the Phenoms and the like...

lol

When they are running,most of the time there all good.But when something goes wrong,they are just a b*tch to fix.
