Havent had my new one crash, and its been around for about 6 months. Consistent and reliable.

My old pc was very choppy, but did its job...eventually.

So far all has been well, The only time its crashed is when i was overclocking it!

I did have the CoD2 issue flops speaks of once but other than that its been really well behaved.

I bought an HP in 2001 and I have never had a problem, and it was run all day pretty much for 6 years, apart from hard drive/ gfx changes etc. Good reliable system.

The other one I built about 8 months ago, so clearly its fine.

Had the odd problem with faulty RAM, but apart from that I've been pretty much trouble free

Had an intermittent fan prob on me old pc , fixed it and its run for 4 years no probs .

The £75 fujitsu siemens I got from e-bay and upgraded a bit has been hammered by its 14 year old games playing owner and is running sweetly .

The pc I built for me sister is ok .

My pc is running just great , be even better when I get round to using the case I got from flopps .

Blue screen of death has haunted me over the years and its always been software related (apart from me fan prob) .

AMD and Asus sound as a pound in my book .
