    Anonymous: Hi, I have the ET1331G-03w and yes it crashed on me 4-months later it was because of windows defender anti virus program did not work, My computer managed to get everything and crashed had to reinstall my rescue disk's to fix it !, Oh, i have found that if i was to up grade this computer first is the power supply now i can only go to about 350 watts only because the mother board as i was told is it is set to 250 watts from Emachine, Also my new video card that i just recived and that is Nvida 9800 GT with 1-Gig of memory will work well on the unit but must change the power supply to run it, Plus it came with 6-Gig's of system memory i also will bring this up to 8-Gig's Max.

    Rember don't over 350 watts or your systerm will be unstable and some things may not correctly ! Jan 29, 11
