I agree, and I am going to put one in my secretaries
computer however the bigger PS did nothing for mine. I have the 450w in mine and nothing changed. Please note, I bought two identical (2) CM6830 at the same time
. Both would freeze out of the box, which didn't concern me because I aways re-format and do a fresh windows install to get rid of all the bloatware. After installing a new copy of Windows 7 Ultimate both units still freeze and re-boot randomly.
So, if you have a suggestion or a solution remember I have two identical units doing the same thing. I tried to explain this to Bestbuy and Asus factory and they kept on making suggestions like "try" doing a fresh install or sounds like a driver
issue. Both units ARE a fresh install. Bad memory sticks have been suggested, and I have tried it with just one, then the other, with no change, and AGAIN, what are the odds of two computers having bad sticks? If the memory was an issue, it would also be an issue with the Vcard removed.
