iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme NE650FX Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-6100(3.3GHz) 8GB DDR3 500GB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 1GB Windows 8 64-Bit
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Great for a Budget build, though I cheated and got an open box of this for even cheaper. Still, with what comes in here, you'd be fairly hard pressed to build one yourself for cheaper.
-The processor might not be an i5, but it's still pretty strong, and does well with overclocking. The mATX board included is great for that.
-Amazing cable management: both from just the case, and the work put in by the assembler. Expected a nightmare of cables, and was pleasantly surprised.
-Great functional case, that has a lot of room. The case window is a pretty durable plastic that showcase the insides well, including the pretty cables.

Cons: -The 300w power supply is the biggest roadblock to upgrading this; so plan on buying one before you get anything else.
-The 610GT card isn't -quite- as bad as everyone says, but it's definitely not great. Ran stuff like League of Legends and Minecraft alright, but don't expect miracles from it.

Other Thoughts: As soon as I got this, I tested it for functionality, then ripped out the power supply, video card, and CPU heatsink/fan. Replaced them with a 700w Modular Kingwin power supply, MSI 650ti Boost GPU, and a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO for the heatsink/fan. Everything fit just fine, though the Hyper 212 EVO is cutting it a little close (the very top of the heatsink's copper pipes have about 1mm clearance from the case window). Runs like a dream.

One thing to note is that since this is using an mATX board, the Hyper 212 Evo with a fan (depending on what kind of airflow you are going for) WILL sit over your RAM slots. The fan's position is adjustable, though, so that's not too much of an issue, even if you plan on using something like G.Skill RAM, with those big heat fins.

MSI Power Edition N650TI PE 1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Amazing Price, got this on sale for $118 before the $20 Rebate
-Great cooling solution already on the card. Can really push some air, especially if you manually adjust the fan speed.
-So far has been running everything I can throw at it on highest settings, including Skyrim, Sleeping Dogs, XCOM, and Arkham City. This is without OCing.

Cons: -The fan -can- be a little loud if the card is really under load (or you've manually turned it up), but that's to be expected. Even on the aforementioned games, it doesn't get any louder than a soft hum. If you're a real quiet freak, the fan and heatsink doesn't seem like it's too difficult to remove, and replace with something else.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you know what you're buying, because this card doesn't support SLI. Still an awesome card, that -can- still be used for dedicated PhysX if you upgrade to another card in the future.

Cooler Master Sleeve Bearing 120mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators (Value 2-Pack)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Great Blue Color
-Very quiet, no louder than any of my other fans
-Great deal for two of these bad boys

Cons: -The mounting holes aren't threaded. You'll have to thread them yourself.
-Screws seem a little on the cheap side. Really require some serious pressure to keep it from stripping, if you're threading by hand.
-Mine shipped without four screws. Thankfully had some laying around.

Other Thoughts: Newegg shipping never ceases to amaze me. Product arrived in two business days, even though I went with the supersaver shipping.
