Gigabyte Ultra Durable 2 GV-N65TBOC-1GD GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphic Card - 1032 MHz Core - 1 GB GDDR5 SDRAM - PCI Express 3.0 x16
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Boost GPU and Overclocked
-Price to Performance ratio is very high compared to other cards
-lower power requirement compared to older video cards

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: replaced my MSI N460GTX that started flaking out on me and causing blue screens and windows freezes

I have a X58 Sabertooth PCI Express 2.0 x16 board and this 3.0 runs fine on it

Note: I hate rebate offers. I bought the card irrespective of the rebate.

Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I only wrote this review because I found out (through Seagate's website) that this drive is similar to the ST2000DM001 drive. With one major difference .... this drive is 3GB not 6GB. If you want 6GB buy the ST2000DM001 drive.

Cons: newegg has the wrong description for this drive

Hercules XPS 2.0 60 30 Watts RMS 2.0 HiFi Inspired 2.0 Multimedia Speakers Set
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Very Loud and Good Quality 02/18/2011

This review is from: Hercules XPS 2.0 60 30 Watts RMS 2.0 HiFi Inspired 2.0 Multimedia Speakers Set

Pros: These speakers are large with quality construction. Very good range across all frequencies. They sound better the further away you are from them.

Cons: The 3.5 mm sound cable (green handle) that comes with this set is not good. When connected to the output on the computer it was loose and caused some problems over time. I eventually lost sound to the left speaker. I replaced it with a slightly larger version and it improved the sound quality and I can hear out of the left speaker.

I would have preferred if they angled these speakers slightly upward to improve the sound from the tweeters when sitting at the desk. Nothing a small block propped underneath each speaker could not fix. Not a problem for shorter people, or if you are generating the sound for the entire room.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on placing speakers right in front of you and don't need loud speakers for games or music these are not for you. Stick to the low end like logitechs lower cost brands.

If you want good sound out any speakers do not forget to raise your sound level on the computer to over 90%. Too many times I have seen others complain about speakers and they never check the sound level or sound effects (if enabled) on the PC.
