SPARKLE SX560T1024D5MH GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small design (like most 560's), seems to run cool.

Cons: Fan clips shroud, making lots of noise. Non-standard for this card, I believe. Expecting replacement to resolve that issue. Also, crashed the system out of Black Ops and Mirror's Edge (last is not terribly stressful for this card.) Based on reviews of the silicon, and Sparkle in general, I expect I simply received a bad bit of kit. Unfortunate I've got to pay shipping to replace a faulty part ... c'mon, Egg, that's a bit ridiculous.

BFG Tech BFGEGTX260896OCE GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: More GDDR, more ROPs, more power. This card replaces my 8800GT (which, to be honest, was a fantastic workhorse and an excellent card in its own right.) As a gamer, my 8800gt was starting to fall behind, so I upped to the GTX260, and it's a fantastic piece of hardware.

Cons: It does draw more power, and it's a 2-slot card vs. the 1-slot of my old 8800GT. Nothing to dock and egg for, though -- find me a high-end card that doesn't do either of those things!

Other Thoughts: Had I done a slight bit more research, I might have discovered the GTX 260 / 216, which nVidia made as the second generation, adding 20 or so more pipes to the card. The performance difference isn't significant, and not worth trying to return the card in order to upgrade again.

SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model SH-S223Q LightScribe Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This burner has been fantastic for me over the past couple months. I was making coasters when my last burner died out -- it was loud and slow to begin with. The Samsung is fast, relatively quiet, and has been burning "backup" data regularly for the past 2 months.

Cons: Non.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried playing w/ the Lightscribe part of it yet.
