Other Thoughts: These phones have lasted well enough for the price. The cushions started flaking and as they aren't easily replaced it was time for some new phones. Spent a little extra and got some Koss Porta-Pros. I never realized how much I was missing! Listening to the Pannys now is like listening to grown-ups speaking to Charlie Brown. I cannot recommend these headphones.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent video card for the Black Friday money. Handles everything I throw at it just fine. Fan gets pretty loud when its working hard though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, quiet, efficient.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty dang impressed with my first SSD. I'm throttling this baby on a 5 year old mobo with SATA II, and it still boots and loads programs super quick. I attempted to use the software, but found that Windows wasn't liking the BIOS changes I was making (like switching from IDE to AHCI) to take better advantage of the drive and continually gave me the dear old BSOD... So I just did a fresh install. Works great and was the fastest Windows installation I have ever done (and I've been doing them since Windows 95) and as such was a mild pleasure.
Now if I just get that new video card, I can bump up my 5 year old rig to a 6.9 WEI score (I obviously really care about WEI with this first upgrade in 5 years). Not too shabby at all.
