This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 2800+ ClawHammer Single-Core 1.8GHz Socket 754 Processor ADA2800BOX
Pros: I've had this processor in an old computer for 10 years (2004) now and it's still running well. Never had any problems along the way, either!
Other Thoughts: I loaded Windows 7 and Linux Mint 16. Windows 7 SP1 ran okay but you can definitely see some trouble with performance and Mint 16 was next to unusable.
Back in 2010, I loaded Ubuntu 9.04 and it ran well.
So, while this chip is showing its age, it aged well. I'm currently running XP on it and don't have a use for it at this juncture, but it may come in handy in the future.
Running it with:
MSI K8T NEO-FSR (no bad caps)
1 GB Kingston ValueRAM
ATI Radeon 9000
2 Maxtor 40 GB IDE HDDs
300W Starlogic PSU
Everything still runs like new! Currently running an AMD FX-8350 chip in my current PC. Looking forward to another 10 years, AMD!
This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged Gigabit GREENnet Switch
Pros: -1 Gbps speeds
-Adequate for servers
-Small, but not fragile!
Other Thoughts: This is driving two of my servers, one of which is my file/Minecraft server (amongst other applications) and my routing server. Since I've had this, I've never had any hiccups in the network! It's constantly "throughputting" data and holds up well.READ FULL REVIEW
-Powerful for what it is
-Fan isn't too noisy
-Plays Minecraft well on highest settings (1080p)
Other Thoughts: A lot of people argue that low end cards like this are a waste of money. While I see the point behind that, they're perfectly viable if you want to save RAM and have a performance boost by not using integrated graphics.
I'm pairing this with an Intel Pentium G3220 CPU, MSI H81M-P33 motherboard and 4 gigs of RAM. Very solid card. A big upgrade from the previous Radeon HD 6450 I was running.
