    Is this a good computer


    Hi all I get some information from Speccy about my friend's computer hardware and I want to know if they are good.

    CPU: Intel Pentium E5700@3.00Ghz Wolfdale 45nm Technology (38 C Temperature)
    RAM: 4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3@399Mhz (6-6-6-15)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. G41M-Combo (Socket 775) (34 temperature)
    Graphics: SyncMaster (1440x900@60Hz) Intel G41 Express Chipset (Gigabyte)
    Storage: 465GB Western Digital WDC WD5000AAKX-001CA0 ATA Device (SATA) (41 temperature!)
    Optical Drives: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-222BB ATA Device
    Audio: High Definition Audio Device

    Is this a good and fast computer and does it still healthy? Also in speccy SMART hard drive status is warning so my friend was worried that hard drive will fail does this will happen in short time?

    SMART can be warning of problems, would be time to get all the data your friend has created or that exists nowhere else backed up to other media then get a new drive.

    As far as the computer goes it looks fine, certainly something I would use. I recycle computers that have come into my possession and frequently give them to folks in need. The 4GB RAM is good for most uses but Windows always likes more.

    I'd go to Western Digital Hard Drives, Network Drives, Media Players and download their diagnostic, check the HDD.
