Pros: Super smooth frame rates on new games when paired with the right hardware. Normally i play call of duty mw3, before i had this card i had most of my video settings set lower. after i had this card, everythign is maxxed out.
Cons: none yet.
Other Thoughts: i first got this card about a week before the rest of my computer parts so i decided to throw it in the pc i had to see if it would provide gains. it did however not much. It was in a Athlon x2 5400+ with 6gb of ddr2 800mhz and normal sata hdd's. The gains compared to my 8800gtx in this system were minimal, i did not run any kind of bench mark programs so i dont have any real number to back it up but my games still didnt look great or run smooth.
Enter the fx-6100 6 core cpu and 8gbs of ddr 1833 and new mb. Now i have every setting in every game ive played turned all the way up including Vsync. and so far every game ive played has been as smooth as silk. the different between the card in my current computer and my old computer is night and day, as i had assumed my old hardware was bottlenecking the new video card and once i had a cpu and ram to keep up with it, it was off and running like a crazy person. unless your in a man part measuring contest, this card is enough power.
This review is from: PLANTRONICS GameCom 377 Open-ear 3.5mm Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: These thing pump out incredible sound, the bass doesnt hit as hard as my last set of plantronics(dont know what model they are but theyre almost 5 years old now and still fine). As of this time i like the way they feel on my head, i wear a 7.5 fitted hat size, so you can tell if i have a larger head or whatever. To me they sound great paired with my X-fi Titanium, i can hear exaclty what is going on around me at all times in every game i play.
Cons: The cord could be longer.
Other Thoughts: Ive read a lot of people saying that they are flimsy or weak, and im sure if you treat them like garbage they will break, as an adult however, i remove my headphones in a normal manner and place them on my desk when i dont use them, i could see if you have a massive head and its constantly stressing the plastic that they will break, but that is the nature of plastic, its brittle and not typically very malleable. I would say that the best way to make anything last a long time, treat it like you want it to last.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Sounds beautiful, if your a gamer you need one of these. This combined with a good set of headphones will make anything you play sound like magic in your ears. If all you have is some on board sound chip, you are truly missing out.
Cons: This doesnt come built on to mother boards. but thats not a con of this card, its a con for the world, its a shame that mother board companies take the time to put inferior sound chips on their boards.
Other Thoughts: Until you have heard creative sound cards you dont know what your missing. i have had a pci512, sb blaster live, Sound blaster audigy, and a sound blaster X-fi xtreme music card as well and will not stop buying creative products for my home built pcs.READ FULL REVIEW
