I got what I paid for and as described
on 30 November 2011
The Acer AX3990 is what I got. I read the description and did a bit of googling for info and purchased. When it arrived there was not a lot of info but I have purchased Acer before so I already had experience of setting this kind of PC up. This was a doodle and up and running in about 2 hours which included all my back-up photo's and security software. I also set the power settings to my liking and removed some of the Acer bloatware.
Have to say that as mentioned in other feedback, this did come with PS2 KB and mouse but that was in the description. I to fitted my own usb soundcard (Creative X-fi) and no problems.
I am a photographer retired and do a lot of editing with Adobe PSE 10 and no issues. Also a bit of HD video edit and this little PC deals with this fine, if a little louder when rendering, but good enough.
If I were looking for any kind of gaming PC this would be nowhere on my list. But If like me people would read the description properly then they would know this is not an option for a gaming machine. In fact the small form factor case alone would be a instant indication of potential problematic case , if you could get a card to fit, dealing with the all important cooling issue - this case is not any good for that.
If you are looking for a nice small quiet PC that will sit there in the corner and do most things well apart from gaming this is it. Worth every penny.
Last, there is a back-up system on this PC and when you 1st start it after a little while you are offered the chance to burn a back-up DVD, 3 disks, and I would say do it, worth it should anything happen.
Hope my little word of feedback helps.
