Pros: So far this card is rock solid! I keep my system running regularly and between running High Def movies and gaming, this card never skips a beat! I watch for high temps on my system and while running Brink on one monitor at max settings and running an HD movie in the other, it never got beyond 59 degrees C and everything was smooth and stable!
Cons: Don't have two to SLI... yet! Hopefully some time soon though, haha.
Other Thoughts: I have noticed many reviews of people talking about their systems locking up with the GTX 460's. In testing on my system, if I set up my system to turn the monitor off automatically after a set amount of time, upon moving the mouse to wake the monitors, the system would always freeze, but it always seemed to be in correlation to how long the display was off for. After editing my setting to never turn off the displays, it stopped that problem completely. I can have my system hibernate or sleep and it always starts up perfect, only problem was from having my monitors turn off automatically.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well ventilated, roomy, but most of all, simple! I'm used to having multiple screws to remove sides, install HDD or media drives and I'm used to always having lay the case on its side to install the MB and other components, but with this, one handle latch and the side panels lay right down! I just love the design of this case! For the advanced builder, it makes building quick and easy! It took me under 10 minutes to have PSU, MB, Video card, Audio card, 3 hard drives, DVDR/W installed and all the cables hooked up and ready to run. For the beginner, it makes for a very user friendly experience. It comes with quite a few case fans as well, so it helps keep the system cool and so far, it's nice and quiet and looks good!
Other Thoughts: I'd just say if anyone reading this intends on buying the physically largest video card they can possibly find, the HDD's could possibly get in the way if you fill every bay open for them, otherwise, very roomy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a nice large monitor. The refresh rate keeps up well and the resolution through hdmi in looks great. This also makes for a good solution for a small high def tv. I hooked up my PS3 and i gotta say it did look great. The speakers aren't anything to brag about, but for the price, well worth it.
Cons: The reason i am giving this product a 4 is because without having it set to the specific resolution, it is quite pixelated. Most monitors will look fine no matter where you have the resolution as long as it fits the aspect ratio of the screen, but with this monitor, to get the best picture, i have it almost maxed out and i'm not real fond of having all my text and icon's so small.
Other Thoughts: My first thought was that i made a bad choice with this monitor, but once i got it hooked up through hdmi instead of vga and got the resolution high enough, i changed my mind. Plus one great advantage to this monitor is being able to use it as a high def tv. It'll be nice for trips to be able to take my PS3 and this monitor for something to do on boring nights.READ FULL REVIEW
