Pros: Half Modular--all of the cables most people need are already on the PSU, and the rest you can add on a if-needed when-needed basis. Drives my Phenom II X6 1055T, 890FX Motherboard, and a HD5870 perfectly under heavy load in games.
Cons: Some cables are a bit long and require some extra cable management to get them out of the way.
Other Thoughts: The supplied PCIe card has two heads on it (one 6+2 pin, one 6 pin) and was adequate to drive a HD5870 alone.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 6-core CPU solution that's AFFORDABLE. 7.4 score in Windows 7 rating! I'm not an overclocker. I opted for this solution over the 1090T because I wanted a hex-core CPU performance that didn't rival Core i7 solutions in price.
Cons: CPU fan is loud, but the heatsink that AMD provides is pretty beefy and high quality for a stock heatsink. Much higher quality than OEM-supplied HSFs from Intel.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this CPU as it runs very quickly and has all of the features applicable to normal users and gamers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I opted for this case because of a Newegg promotion, experience with the HAF 932, and the fact that I needed something that my HD5870 could fit into. This case is very nice quality steel and paint! The case fans all come with 3-pin to 4-pin Molex adapters, if needed. Front LED for the intake fan can be turned on and off with a switch on top, power button is easily accessible on the top. Airflow is beyond amazing, as the front intake and top exhaust fans are GIGANTIC.
Cons: Hard Drive and Optical Drive plastic retention system is never a favorite of mine, as it feels flimsy and when optical drives are working, there is a lot of noise!
Other Thoughts: Hope you enjoy red LED color schema on your computer. If you're a blue/green fan, you won't like the case I don't think.READ FULL REVIEW
