I bought this as part of my digital upgrade from vinyl. Let me tell you that there is nothing I can throw at it that will stop or make this computer crawl. It games, it renders, it entertains and still looks at you wanting more and more. I've purchased two of these. My wife and I both have one. Her's is perfect while mine has had constant heat issues and repeatedly blows the nVidia 3d card. My warranty is about out and ASUS refuses to replace the entire unit. So here I sit with a machine that steamrolls anything but, can't fully use it.
