I bought this for my husband and it was the worst comp yet. We have 5 computers in our home and this one is the only one we have trouble with. It was purchased for gaming yet the issues we have with it only occur when using it for gaming. The sound goes out or turns into a high pitch squelch. The blue screen of death occurs frequently while running online games. Have had Dell at the house many times to replace motherboard and other various components but it still happens. We have learned our lesson and will not purchase a Dell again.
