The new emachine ET1831-07 is a great starter computer, it comes with plenty of ram 4GB and a large 750GB Hard drive. In my opinion emachines has been making pretty good computers lately. In the video below I will show you all the cool features of this computer. Also below is information about the computer specs as well as links to where you can get it. In the video I mention that you can get this computer for about $460 and that was because there was a sale at Best Buy for $469 which included an 18” lcd monitor. The computer actually cost a little under $400.

    My motherboard burnt out and the power supply was on the way. That was around August of 2010. Anyways I went to the store to replace the broken parts. That’s when I noticed this little e-machine sitting there. I usually build my own rig and it needed a complete overhaul. Seeing something that said e-machine on it I would normally cringe but it was a really good deal. I purchased that and tossed my HD-4650 in the graphics slots. Underneath that I stuck an Antec Vcool to chill it off. Above that I placed another exhaust fan blowing out. This little e-machine kicks some serious ass with minor upgrades. Even though this processor is outdated and hard to overclock the graphics card is not. I have yet to meet a game this machine can not handle. With proper upgrades

    Oh yeah I had to upgrade the power supply too. All my extra purchases were to turn this into a very cheap gaming machine, and it has lived up to that task.
