As a very low level gaming rig, it's awful pretty. I don't own one personally, but I did test and review one for a National print and online PC Mag. Overall performance was very quick for a "Budget" Gaming PC, but the graphics card capabilities just won't allow Me to rate it any higher. The Locked Bios and CPU prevents it from reaching the levels of performance it's more than capable of.
The GXi220 at a cost of around $50.00 more, I'd rate almost Fantastic as a lower "High Level" Gaming Rig. Anyone who thinks this model is extremely fast, and worth a 5 star rating, needs to spend an Hour on the 220 model. They'd be so Amazed, they would want to give it 10 Stars.
Already equipped with a Radeon HD 6850, Unlocked Bios and Unlocked i5 2500k, It's capable of being overclocked safely to Benchmark the i5-CPU pass 11,000! WOW! The only two faster processors are the i7-3960x and 3930k.
So I'm Praying that WalMart will re-stock with the shelves with the GXi220 Models soon. Believe Me. It's Worth Waiting.
