ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks great, Gigabit, and Easy Web based interfaced system. Very simple to set up and get online and set up wi-fi. Working great, its Dual band so my computer can be on the 5ghz band and kids PSP, iPod's, etc can be on the low band.

Cons: Heat. The system is a little tipsy turby when you have 3 LAN cables plugged in, constantly wants to tip over with any stress is put on the cables. Gets Hot, hope it last.

Other Thoughts: I bought the NewEgg extended 3yr warranty. Last router I got was a Netgear and it died right at the one year mark when the warranty ran out. I guess heat was the issue with the Netgear N600's. Since this thing is small, heat will be a problem so I got the extended warranty just in case.

OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fairly reasonable price <$100 on sale. Fast, installation was pretty easy

Cons: Only 60gb and SSD's still pretty expensive.

Other Thoughts: Installed this in My ACER ASPIRE 7552G-6061 laptop, running Windows 7 Home Edition no problem. Boot up time super fast, no compatibility issues so far. Windows 7installed super fast. Only really enough space for Operating System and utilities, can fit only about 1 game after that.

XFX HD695XZDDC Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: *Lifetime Warranty-as long as you register it w/in 30 days. (never have had a problem with any XFX product so far).

*Smaller in size then my XFX GTX 260 black edition (still a great card btw) this replaced. I have a Thermaltake Tsunami case that I have been using for a few years, the GTX was snug up to the hard drive case, and scraped the rear of the card. This card is clear of it by about 3/4 of an inch. Should fit in most mid ATX cases.

*Factory overclocked. I have not tried to overclock but I do use MSI afterburner to set the fan speed a bit higher, the fans are not that loud. This card is plenty fast as it is.

*Looks pretty good sitting in my mostly black case. Nice looking Heat Sink, Fans, and black PCB.

Cons: 1 GB GDDR5. I wish XFX had a 2gb Black Edition version, I probably would have went with that instead for more future proofing.

Other Thoughts: I don't have 3 monitors to use Eyefinity so the 1gb is fine. I have used the HDMI and hooked this up to my Hannspree 42" 1080p LCD TV and it looks great! Played StarCraft II just fine on the big screen!

My Spec's:
*AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE unlocked and OC'd to X4 3.4ghz
*Arctic Cooling 7 HS/Fan
*Asus M4A88TD-V EVO Mobo
*4gb OCZ AMD Black Edition DDR3 1600mhz
*XFX Radeon 6950 1gb GDDR5 Black Edtion
*Thermaltake Tsunami case (yes I know its a few years old but works great for me).
*Asus Blu-Ray BD-RW, *Asus DVDRW
*Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Platinum Sound Card
*Killer M1 NIC
*OCZ 700watt GameStream Power Supply
(everything bought from new egg!)
