MSI Radeon HD 5450 R5450-MD1GD3H/LP 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low profile and includes bracket
low power requirements for non-gaming
dual-monitor support
fast desktop/Aero performance

Cons: none, for its intended purpose

Other Thoughts: This is a low-end, inexpensive graphics card. It won't play games well, but it will do about as well as Intel HD graphics for desktop and Aero effects. It has both VGA and DVI ports, and comes with a low profile bracket to fit into a low profile PC. This is perfect for older HP and Dell small form factor PCs that have really slow Intel Q35 or GMA built-in graphics. It will really speed up desktop performance on these and allow dual monitor use. Works fine with 200 watt PSUs as long as you don't try to run 3D accelerated games.

WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -High reliability
-one of the fastest, if not the fastest 7200 rpm SATA drive
-good price considering the performance and reliability

Cons: -none (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I've purchased probably a dozen of these drives over the past couple of years and have not had one fail in the field yet. Perfect for office/production workstations.

Acer G7 G237HLbi Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Monitor quality is pretty subjective, but I have to say this is one of the nicest displays I've looked at. Crisp, bright, accurate colors, 1920x1080 gives lots of real estate.
-got a great price--139.99 which makes the value soar.

Cons: -No DVI, only D-SUB and HDMI. My PC has ONLY DVI, so I had to buy a DVI-to-HDMI cable. They are cheap, so no biggy, but pay attention to this detail before you decide to buy.
-Flimsy stand, but as long as you don't move it around much, it'll hold stable. If you have a flimsy desk that vibrates easily, the monitor will jiggle around whenever you bump the desk. My desk is pretty solid, so I haven't had that issue except when I was setting it up on a less solid surface.

Other Thoughts: At 199.99 it's a decent value, but it's a steal if you can get it on sale for less.
