I will try this to solve several issues with a clean Windows 7 install:
1) I've tried two silent video cards that are getting very hot. The two cards are Asus Geforce 8600 GT as seen here http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/EN8600GT_SILENTHTDP512M and Geforce 7950GT as seen here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150189.
Using Speccy and GPU-Z I can see that the temperature regularly reaches 190 degrees F.
I'm replacing those with an XFX Radeon HD 7770 that has a fan as seen here: (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150666). I'm trying to see if it does not get as hot.
UPDATE: Solved the graphics card problem with the XFX Radeon HD 7770! Temperature stays at about 103 degrees F. Got a nice deal on it form ebay for $85, free shipping.
Here is my new Windows Experience Index rating:
2) The obvious USB issue that is not recognizing anything when I plug something into it.
3) My computer has an issue with not shutting down and simply restarting when trying to shut down.
I will let you know how it goes with a reinstall of Windows 7...
I've done a clean install of Windows 7, there is no change in the situation the the USB problem and the computer restarting.
I have tried with Windows 7 USB drivers, the Dell drivers, and updated AMD provided drivers.
There is no change with the USB issue, it simply will not accept four rear USB devices plugged in.
I must have one rear USB port unplugged in order to try to avoid USB problems.
UPDATE: I'm trying updated Ethernet drivers from here:

Please fire your forum employees doing nothing here on the forums and hire some skilled hardware engineers and hardware programmers.
Maybe you'll get people like me to buy your products in the future. I'm now considering the new Apple products in the future and they are far more reliable then what I've seen from you and the other PC manufacturers.
