This review is from: NETGEAR WGR614NAR G54 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
Pros: The wireless range on this router out performed my Linksys, and Dlink routers. Not to mention my WRT-110 Linksys-n router.
Cons: Netgear interfaces just kind of flat out are old school. Their router configuration is kind of lacking compared to linksys or dlink. (EX, allowing firewall rules during certain times of the day)
Other Thoughts: Never had a problem with the unit, haven't had any freezing or necessary restarts of the router. (minus firmware updating)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Core2 Duo E7500 Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80571E7500 Processor
Pros: - Runs cool
Cons: - Would like to see it a bit cheaper
- 3mb L2 cache is somewhat low
Other Thoughts: Still good for the price, this thing runs chilly! 28c and 34c under full load w/the stock fan. Cant wait to start playing with the overclock.
I paired this with a BIOSTAR G31E-M7 LGA 775 here from newegg, and talk about a cheap, POWERFUL workstation / casual gaming machine!
This review is from: BIOSTAR G31E-M7 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: - The 24pin ATX connection is backward compatable with a 20pin ATX as long as you have an extra 4 pin on your power supply. (you have to plug this in to the 4 port plug, leave 4 pins exposed on your 20pin ATX)
- Price simply cant be beat
- Ideal motherboard for workstation or cheaper gaming machine (limited to just PCI Express video cards for upgrading)
- Runs Windows XP 32bit w/o issue, all drivers work flawlessly.
Cons: Another pair of ram slots would be nice to allow users to add to a pair of 1 gb sticks, but I guess if I ever need a ram upgrade ill just but two 2 gb sticks. Cant complain at a price like this!
Other Thoughts: Running a Core 2 Duo E7500 w/2GB pc6400 GSkill memory.
Nothing really to say other then this motherboard just flat out rocks. This basically is the perfect motherboard for casual gamers or someone who wants a powerful work station.
The Core 2 Duo is awesome in this motherboard, it runs insanely cool, and the board also provides me with the ability to upgrade to a quad core if I choose to in the future.
