EVGA GeForce GTX 680 02G-P4-2680-KR 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: fast, good drivers w/ frequent updates.

Cons: not free

Other Thoughts: So like everybody else I was able to get great framerates in BF3. Tonight I'll pair it with a BenQ XL2420t, which should be great.

In case there are some other old-school folks out there, I did a couple TIMEDEMO's in Quake 1 & Q3. I had most eyecandy turned on, so no blocky mipcap stuff. In Q3 with FOUR.dm_68, I got 828.4 fps.
In Quake 1, the timedemo was similar. Using Timrefresh in the DM3 rocket room I got 5,415 fps :)

Acer Laptop Aspire AS1830-3595 Intel Core i3 330UM (1.20 GHz) 2 GB Memory 250 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 11.6
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: build quality, price. Blows away other "netbooks" in this price range, and with a bit more RAM it performs great!

Cons: touchpad scrolling awkward / unresponsive...
As others have stated, lots of bloatware.
Graphics performance is it's main weak point, but it should be fine for basic web browsing & video playback.

Other Thoughts: purchased this elsewhere, refurb, for cheap.. replaced ram w/ a generic 8GB (2x4GB DDR3-1333 204-pin SODIMM) kit for just $35.

Intel E1G42ETBLK Multi-Port Server Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express x16 2 x RJ45
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: good optimziations for VT

Cons: doesn't make toast?

Other Thoughts: Intel docs state this is an x4 PCIe device, not x16
