Asus VE228H 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Gorgeous HD display - ran it with both DVI and then HDMI to my Radeon 5380 GPU and everything looks great. Onboard speakers very decent as far as they go - if you can't afford surround sound just yet this is a good alternative.

Cons: Audio was a little tricky to figure out, and website support not helpful. Ended up having to go in and tweak sound card settings on mobo to get HD sound through HDMI cable, and if you run that way plug your earbuds into the audio out in the monitor, not the front of your case.

Other Thoughts: Part of my first build:
Phenom II X4 955 BE
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
LG 10X Blu-ray burner SATA Model WH10LS30 OEM
Antec EA 650W power supply
Antec 200(v2) Black ATX mid-tower case
ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX mobo
Corsair Vengeance 8G(2X4G) 240-pin DDR3 CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
XFX Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit DDR5

Antec Two Hundred(v2) Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Solid, strong case 04/17/2011

This review is from: Antec Two Hundred(v2) Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1st build - Antec's 200 is nice and solid. Easy to get in and out of, good room for plenty of components, 2 pre-installed exhaust fans are a nice touch. I installed all of the optional fans just to keep everything running cool.

Cons: Top 140mm case fan blades unattached when received and wouldn't work when remounted. RMA'd fan. Also, very tight fit with mobo right up against case fan. Suggest remounting and raising as much as mounting holes will allow to get a little extra space.

XFX HD-583X-ZAFV Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought this card as part of my first build, and it worked great. Clear, crisp graphics, nice fast response rate - plenty powerful for the RPG's I like to run. Installed well, and I plan to buy a second to run Crossfire once my gaming levels up.

Cons: It's a big boy - tight fit in my mid-tower and had to sit the HDD on the very bottom slot so I'd have room to run 2 of these when I'm ready for Crossfire. If you want plenty of room for future expansion, go Full-Tower for your case.
