SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This mean machine will absolutely destroy Crysis on High settings at 1600x1200 (I refuse to use Vista or 7, so no DirectX 10, so no Very High settings, and I hate widescreen, so no 2560x1600). Unlike the 4850 that it replaced, it doesn't have overheating problems. It is probably the last video card that I will ever need.

Cons: It won't do my laundry for me or bring about world peace.

Other Thoughts: Just an absolutely excellent card, especially for the price.

XCLIO A380BK Fully Black SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Better than specified 12/02/2009

This review is from: XCLIO A380BK Fully Black SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is actually better than Newegg says it is. First of all, I don't know what case all of you people bought, but mine came with a 120mm rear fan. Secondly, Newegg says it's only for MicroATX and ATX boards, but it can actually accommodate Extended ATX as well. The fact that it looks like a jet engine is awesome, as are the dual 250mm fans. Just about everything is tool-less. There are USB and Firewire ports on top, and the back has a knob for controlling the speed of the side fan. Comes with a full EIGHT slots for hard drives (or whatever else people use 3.5" bays for). Side panel window, LEDs, blah blah blah.

Cons: The screws that secure the side panel to the chassis are really tight at first; you'll probably need a screwdriver to get them loose. Aside from that, I haven't noticed anything. I'll let you all know if something breaks.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with it.

EVGA 170-BL-E762-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 4-WAY SLI Classified XL ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Everything.

Cons: No place for PCI cards or PCIe x1 cards. If it's not a graphics card, you can't plug it into the mobo... LOL.

Other Thoughts: bslattree hasn't done his/her homework. The Silverstone ST1500 should have no problem feeding four GTX 295s, as each one sucks up 330 watts at full load, and four times that is 1320W, leaving 180W for the CPU and other components - that's cutting it pretty close when every Socket 1366 CPU has a 130W thermal envelope, but it's doable (just disable three of the cores if necessary - the CPU isn't doing the heavy lifting, right?). Furthermore, the motherboard accommodates four such cards quite easily with no modifications. It's the CASE that you'd have to modify... or you could just ignore the screw-holes and glue the motherboard into place two expansion slots higher than you're supposed to, depending on the height of the case. Seriously, dude... you took to modifying the freaking motherboard? Do you also take your TV apart and modify it every time you want to change the channel? Jeez... what the hell, dude?
