This review is from: XFX HD-465X-ZPF2 Radeon HD 4650 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Video Card
Pros: AGP Slot.
Can now run games at 1920x1080 res.
New AGP Hotfix drivers released, Catalyst 10.4 from AMD.
Cons: Bottle-necked by my Pentium 4 CPU.
Other Thoughts: I bought this video card to upgrade my aging PC. I used to be able to run BF2 with Low settings and only get about 30 FPS. Now I get around 80 FPS with the settings at medium, so I haven't finished tweaking the settings yet. It's an improvement to just get decent FPS while fully using the 1920x1080 res of my 23" LCD Monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great little upgrade for the laptop. The laptop was a HP one that only came with 256 MB of RAM. This 1 GB upgrade was the max that could be added and it definitely sped up the laptop.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's great because it's a single rail so the power is not split between a couple of rails, meaning that I get maximum output from this little PSU. It has a lot of connectors, plenty of peripheral 4-pin molex connectors, enough to power extra fans and case lights. It has a dedicated 6-pin PCI-Express power connector. There are plenty of SATA power connectors too. Cool black paint, large 120 MM fan on the bottom of the PSU.
Cons: It's not modular, but I knew that when I bought it, so there are some extra cables I'm not using. The entire cable is not sleeved as you would think. The connector is sleeved from the PSU up to the first connector, like on the SATA cable which has three connectors, the last two are not covered in sleeving.
Other Thoughts: I was originally going to buy the 530W which was on sale for $49.99, but missed the sale and this so this one was $59.99 and I decided to buy it. That's a great price for a 630W PSU. I've only had it for a month, but it is super quite and very nice.READ FULL REVIEW
