WD Scorpio Blue WD5000BPVT-FR 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cost-effective high-capacity drive for storage.

Cons: Only 5400 RPM.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to use in an enclosure as an external backup drive for storing about 300 GB of media on. Someday I will probably remove it from the enclosure and put it in a media server when I get around to building it. So far, it has performed as well as expected. No complaints.

EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB 384-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Far and away the best graphics card I've ever seen. Definitely a fantastic value when compared to the much more expensive 8800 Ultra. I've got 2 of these babies in SLI and they don't slow down for anything, not even Crysis on max settings.

Cons: The 9800GX2s are out now. If only I'd waited a few more months.... oh well. They're still much more expensive than these cards and only a little better.

Other Thoughts: Intel Q6600 (OC'd to 2.88GHz), 2x 8800GTX in SLI, ASUS Striker Extreme mobo, 8 GB G.Skill PC 8000 DDR2 RAM, running Vista Ultimate 64.

ASUS Striker Extreme LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX The Ultimate Gaming Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This board has more tweaking options than anything I've ever seen before. You can adjust nearly ANYTHING from voltages to core clock speeds, RAM timing to fan speed, and everything in between. The copper heatpipes are also very cool looking.

Cons: This thing is a pain to set up. The first board I ordered was DOA and had to be RMA'd. The second one posted, but there were issues with the BIOS rev that it comes with. After updating the BIOS, there were still problems getting the RAM voltages set correctly so that the board would actually boot up. I had to use several different sticks of RAM to get it up and running, then reset the voltages to match the default voltages of the RAM that I wanted to use. An annoying inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: THIS BOARD IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS! If you have very little machine-building experience, don't try to get started with this one. You will only give yourself headaches.
