Should be changed a bit on the combination

AdvantagesA good combination of a desktop pc if it's for a semi or professional user

If the space can be decreased to about 120 gb and the expenses saved used on changing the processor to a better one than run smoother like pentium 4 3.8 ghz. Besides, it can also changed to have a greater ram. With that, the problem of the pc slowing down will be solved. Some how rather, the programmes will ..." Read review
