:-(. I soooo want to get a new desktop for our study, but my husband won't accept an AMD processor.

I'm in the market for a desktop PC to better handle HD video rendering chores but, despite being quad-core, this processor is apparently no speed demon.

I'm sure he has no good reason for that. Because there is none.

Sure a quad core Amd processor clocked at 3.4Ghz is more than enough for day to day use, and HD videos. It may not be the best, but it will do well. Under Moofi there's one with 10gb of Ram.

I'd be in for one, but Win8 is a dealbreaker. It might be okay on a touch tablet, but no thank you on a desktop.

Am I correct in reading that there are no HDMI outputs? I haven't purchased a desktop in awhile, so forgive me for my ignorance, but shouldn't that be standard?

If this came with Win7, I'd be in for one to replace an aging HP Pavilion that has gotten wonky.

But I don't want Win8

You can use HDMI to DVI converter or cable. They are both using digital signal.

Possibly, but he works on servers for a living, so I defer to him on that. I support applications, so I get to pick those.

You can install free Start button available from the web. To me, having Windows 8 is not a dealbreaker.

I don't think it is standard for desktops, only laptops. Desktops not being portable to connect to say a TV, don't necessarily need HDMI.

DVI won't carry audio.

Give this one a pass without HDMI or DisplayPort.

No biggie, I set mine up with no prob with hdmi dvi-d adapter and just an extra cord for audio! Dont possibly see how that could be a dealbreaker... awesome price, and I paid 300.00 more for mine!

It's been my experience that DisplayPort using a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter won't carry audio either. I had to use a set of PC speakers with the TV. The HDMI governing board will only allow an HDMI cable to have HDMI connectors on both ends. It can be regular or mini, but both ends MUST have an HDMI end. Regarding AMD processors, I've been using them for over eighteen years and they've been very reliable, not to mention cheaper.

Not all monitors have audio-in.

Most audio-in ports are simple stereo headphone jacks, low quality and don't support 5.1 surround.

Plus additional cables are messy. Certainly not a deal breaker if you don't have these requirements, but if you want to use the PC as a HTPC at any point HDMI is a must have.
