Pros: I got this for 49.99. Best deal ever. You'd have to spend about $150 on a current generation card to get performance like this.
Cons: It's too big to work in my grandma's computer. It's old.
Other Thoughts: I bought this for my grandma's computer for her birthday. It sagged so much in her OLD motherboard that the computer wouldn't boot. It was the motherboards fault. I put my old 5870 in there and it worked fine.
Now I have this beast in my computer, working fine. Runs cool n' quiet, and it's slightly faster (and much quieter) than my old 2GB 5870.
This review is from: MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: I have two older Masscool fans, both 80mm, the ones with blue LEDs.... they've been going strong for over five years. My computer absorbs a LOT of nicotine and cat fur, these fans are beasts though.
Cons: This fan is DOA....
Other Thoughts: If I yank the cord almost hard enough to pull it out of the fan, it will spin up... maybe I'll try to fix it or something, or maybe I'll just send it back for a partial refund, I dunno, hardly seems worth the trouble, for 8 bucks :(
I hate when this happens...
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Nice looking board, heat sinks on it are cool. Came with a nice metallic sticker.
Cons: My last gigabyte board fried. One of the transistors that powers the cpu just popped. Was only running it at 3.0Ghz, and one step over stock voltage. It was a GA-MA78G-DS3H... :( First board out of 8 Gigabytes that ever failed me.
Other Thoughts: Running a Phenom II x4 at 3.9Ghz just fine, 1.5v. Gskill F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL at stock settings. 3870 Video card.
Everything hooked up and booted just fine.
No IDE :( I'll have to use another computer to pull them pics off my OLD 512mb HDD!!
