Just got Call of Duty and Max Payne 2, so I thought I'd test this lemon one more time to see if could handle it. Remember I have already replaced the RAM (twice) and the motherboard.
Result: Nothing but crashes. So I did the "take out 1/2 the memory" test and voila, the games play just fine. However the fan does not want to turn off (ever).
Will be sending it again next week. Another $25 and time lost.

As a side note, this fan is louder than any desktop I have ever owned. Anybody else taken aback by the fan decibel level?
