XFX Double D GT640NCDF3 GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Stays cool & quiet. Bought this card to make Cycles rendering in Blender bearable on my 5 year old Core 2 Duo E6750 Dell Optiplex 755 SFF. My primary machine blows it away but at least usable as a secondary machine now.

Cons: The fan shroud interfered with a large capacitor on the motherboard, so had to remove the shroud to get the card installed. The fans also interfere with the hard drive bracket, so I had to relocate the hard drive to the floppy drive bay. Definitely not a drop-in upgrade.

Other Thoughts: This card takes up 2 slots becase of the heatsink/fan combo. So if you're looking for a low profile card to drop in a small form factor OEM case, make sure you have at least one slot's worth of space between the PCIe connector and the rest of the components on the motherboard. Otherwise, find yourself a card that only takes up 1 slot.

StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Replaced a faulty MiniDP -> DP (active) -> DVI -> HDMI connection in my Eyefinity setup with this adapter and a regular HDMI cable. Works great so far and happy to be rid of the extra adapters.

Cons: Pricey compared to active DVI and VGA adapters. A bundled HDMI cable would have made the price more reasonable.

BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive, holds 2 drives, and comes with screws.

Cons: The bracket only allows the drives to be installed in a single, stacked orientation. This could cause clearance issues with SATA and power connectors in small cases, like it did in my HTPC case.

Other Thoughts: I combined this with a pair of OCZ Agility 3 SSDs. The bracket borders on flimsy but it's sturdy enough once the drives are installed.
