SIGMA La Vie LSWSP Leather Silver SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Update: Power Supply lasted 5 years 06/18/2014

This review is from: SIGMA La Vie LSWSP Leather Silver SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply

Pros: [Follow up to my 9/2009 review] Power supply finally died after five years of heavy use. The last few years it was running 24/7 powering my media center pc in the basement storage room. Not bad imho.

Cons: No cons that I can think of.

GIGABYTE GV-R645SL-1GI Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good sub-$40 card. Installation on Win 7 64-bit was a breeze. Rig is AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.40 GHz 8GB DDR3 667 MHz.
* WEI Windows Experience Index increased to 4.6/6.1 Graphics/GamingGraphics on this Radeon HD 6450 from 3.7/5.7 on my Radeon HD 5450
* StarCraft II playable at 1280x1024 Medium quality with High textures. First level "Liberation Day" was 25-35 fps, opening Jim Raynor cinematic 42-45 fps

Cons: * 6450s use about 27 watts, PC hotter now than with 5450.
* Temp 98 F in Windows and 105 F in StarCraft II.
* StarCraft II "Liberation Day" final in-game cinematic started at 45 fps but went as low as 15fps when the civilian runs away in the fog using settings listed above.

Other Thoughts: Heat sink nice and low profile. Came with nice plastic covers on each port VGA/DVI/HDMI which I left on the two I wasn't using to keep dust out. Go Gigabyte.

XFX HD-575X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great upgrade card. WEI (Windows Experience Index) score in Windows 7 32-bit is 7.3 Graphics, and 7.3 Gaming gbraphics on a Phenom X4 9750 with 4GB (3GB effective) of DDR2 system memory. Able to play StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty at full 24" Samsung monitor resolution of 1920x1080 on "High" graphic settings.

Cons: StarCraft 2 "Ultra" settings (1920x1080) worked on cut-scenes with only occasional tearing and dropped frames, but in gameplay framerate struggled even more and any serious battle was unplayable. On "High" settings there are occasional lower framerates in battle but in my opinion the game looks great and is fully playable. I am keeping my settings on "High" at 1920x1080.

Other Thoughts: Nice, quiet, silent card! XFX rocks. I have a custom Sigma case with only the large power supply fan running (500 watt ps) and I cannot hear the card over it. If I put my ear down towards the case when I boot to Windows 7 I can hear it temporarily spike in super fast mode in some sort of fan test, and then it levels out. Again, sitting up in my chair I never hear the card. Oh, don't forget to plug the 6-pin power cord into the card when installing - I forgot and kept wondering why my video wouldn't come up.
