This review is from: Kaybles HDMIDVI-6BK 6 ft. HDMI to DVI Cable with Gold Plated Connector M-M
Pros: It does exactly what it needs to do. A cable either works or it doesn't.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The thing will run a good amount of games on decent settings. World of Warcraft, The Orange Box, and Oblivion are handled very nicely with little lag on this build. The case has tons of space and excellent cooling (Stayed around 40 degrees under very high intensity). If your budget is right in this range, this thing is perfect.
Cons: The only con I have is that I want to add some extra firepower into thing. The 8500GT, according to Vista's "game rating" (4.3 on this rig due to graphics card) is what bottlenecks the potential of this rig. I will be ordering a 9800GTX to throw into it along with 2GB of extra ram to give this thing that little extra boost.
Other Thoughts: Definitely buy this if you need an upgrade. It's well worth the money, and the upgrade potential is always there. Going from a 100 degree+ laptop to this almost seems like a no-brainer to me now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Guitar Hero Aerosmith Bundle for Xbox 360 Activision
Pros: Much better presentation than GH3, and especially its add-on predecessor, Rocks the 80's. Think of it this way: If you're paying the full $70 for the Les Paul to give yourself two or a replacement, the game is $30, which works out nicely considering the shortened tracklist.
Cons: They could still do without the guitar battles, which are slated to be fixed in World Tour. This game will appeal only to those who like Aerosmith and similar bands, but if you do like classic rock, the game shouldn't be a con for you. You can wait until GH:WT comes out with a varied tracklist or the Metallica version when it comes out later this year or early in 2009.
Other Thoughts: Activision still seems to have issues balancing the difficulty properly. Dream On certainly isn't a 5th (out of 6) tier song, just as Cliffs of Dover was in GH3. There is no The Way it Ends, One, or Through the Fire and Flames speaking in terms of difficulty, but all of the songs are still fun to play.READ FULL REVIEW
