Pros: I got this card a year ago for just around... I want to say 250. This card has done everything I could ask it to do for such a bargain GPU. I never hear it, I never feel heat rising from my case. I run everything at ULTRA(true max) settings. The only game I own that cant handle everything turned up is Metro 2033. It just cant do MSAA 4x, but there are more limiting factors that could effect it.
Cons: I haven't got the second one yet.
Other Thoughts: EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard, COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 Evolution, ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler, 4GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 @ 1066, 2x 300GB Seagate 7200 rpm HDD, e8500 core 2 duo @ 3.14. I'm going to be building a new computer and migrating my 460 to it. So yeah, cant wait!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro Bundle 20 GB Hard drive White
Pros: Game library is "larger" then the PS3's but only a few titles are really worth even claiming as an advantage over the current PS3 games. Xbox Live is great which it should be since the price you pay for it is kinda steep since you already have to pay for service but really easy to use and interact with friends.
Cons: Has not put out any real earth shattering material just alot of average games that keep you content. Halo 3 isnt a bad game infact it is fun to play and i liked it but imo its a small upgrade for halo 2 because you dont have the stand by and other pathetic cheating go on *yet*. You have to buy the elite to get the hdmi cable port and then you still have to buy the hd dvd drive for it which jacks teh price to almost that of the ps3, and you still have to buy charging packs and wireless network attenna and it over heats a lot, i found laying it on its side and not standing it up keeps it from overheating as fast. And the fact that almost every single one of my friends who got a 360 when it was released(12 of them) all of them have had to take theirs in and get it replaced atleast 1 if not 2 times.
Other Thoughts: Fix the rings of death, put the hd-dvd drive in the system, fix the overheat problem which mostlikely adds to the rings of death since computer parts dont like overheating to the point of it locking up because that means its damaging something. And make your online free and you will be a great system... before that my ps3 is much more reliable and is better then the 360 since in the almost one year of owning mine its froze 3 times and that was befoer i moved it away from the wall where its vent was ;p.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PS3 Consoles
Pros: The Blu-ray player is awesome, though at the moment its pretty much on par with hd-dvd the new audio formats they are using for the new movie releases are completely losses which is great for that True theater sound. The 1080p picture looks amazing on my 46" sony xbr3 which if you have the money to spend i would highly recomend that tv. Now for gaming, people have complaind that it isnt any better then the 360, well right now since it is still a very new data system programmers are still learning how to milk the system but it works very well i have had no problems with the 9 titles i currently own.(Heavenly sword, Rainbow 6: vegas, splinter cell, enchanted arms, Tiger woods 07, Ninja Giaden Sigma, The darkness, Resistance Fall of man, GRAW2, and lastly and most disapointed on any console would be NFS:Carbon) Minus Carbon all of these games play and look great on the ps3 and the six axis controls add a great touch to what would be just typical play for a 360.
Cons: The price did suck, i bought the 2 year extended warranty at Best Buy and one game and another controller and spent 876 bucks or something like that. The fact that all the awesome games will not be out for some time now while teh titles out now are good my games that i bought this sucka for are still in Development but the games im waiting are guananteed to be mind blowing. Has froze 3 times in the 1 year as of this november! which is to many for me.
Other Thoughts: This should not be compared to a highend computer just look at the size of the ps3 compared to a comptuer that can run an 8800 card and a quad core cpu and 8 gigs of ram. I will say myself though i would gladly pay for an upgard in ram and even cell speed if it ever came out just so my wait time will be even shorter. And the main reason i got this system was because i have 12 friends who all got the 360 when it came out and all of them have had at the very least 1 new 360 if not 2 since then because of the red rings of doom. and you dont have to spend another 200 or 300 dollars on stuff to make it have the same video and wireless features the ps3 comes with standard. just cheaper if you look at the hole picture and the xbox live hsould be better since you spend around 70 dollars a year on it. Sorry i couldnt be more specific the amount you can put into this is limited so im sorry if some of this was choppy.READ FULL REVIEW
