SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD05B-USB3.0 Aluminum / 0.8mm SECC  micro-ATX / Mini-DTX / Mini-ITX MB, 1x5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Nice front metal panel with polished finish.
- Quality workmanship
- Comes with 3 120mm quiet fans !
- Plenty of space to fit a Micro-ATX board

Cons: - HD mounts are away from the MB ports

Other Thoughts: The silverstone Grandia GD058 Series is a nice HTPC case that's built to last and impress. The nice polish metal front of the case gives the Grandia an elegant look that could easily blend in with other high end stereo components. The fans are efficient but not loud enough that you would notice them. This is a great sub $100 media center case that will add elegance to the living room and still manage to operate quiet enough to stay unnoticed. HD spaces are a little tight, but this is not an issue for me because I use a NAS to store my media files.

XFX Radeon HD 6570 DirectX 11 HD-657X-CNF2 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compact GPU that's running on 150 watt PSU ! Unbelievable performance for the power consumption. HDMI video and sound, plus runs most games at a descent fps.

1. Small card that requires little power
2. Excellent for small factor media center computer / or for kids
3. Runs most games at a decent frame rate.

Cons: None ! ... not for that little $

DIAMOND Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 7870PE52G 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great GPU ! just to think that I paid $60 two years ago for a 5850 it's quite amazing. The price/performance of these cards continues to improve as the years go by.

1. Excellent performance at 1920x1200 in all games I tested.
2. Not as noise as my previous card.
3. Temps are stable even when it's overclocked (not necessary).

Cons: 1. It's a big card. ( Beware if you have mid towers or small factor )
2. Power hungry - You'll still need to power connections for this puppy
3. NO GAMES coupon? The add said that you get two free games, but newegg is out certificates !... how does that happen? I cant really fault the card for this.... this one is all on newegg. The card still gets 5/5.

Other Thoughts: This card is well worth the money. Just remember to register it with Diamond so that you'll get the full 5 YEARS of warranty. I could not find another brand that would even come close to that generous offering.
