PNY GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) DirectX 11 RVCGGTX4601XXB 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small size in comparison to the older GTX200 series. Doesn't require much power.

Cons: Can't overclock with Rivia Tuner, and no control over fan speed either. Seems slow to respond when switching from everyday use to graphically hungry applications.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine at Best Buy. Worked somewhat out of the box. Just had to go on NVIDIA's web to get the latest drivers. The only program that I found to work with the card is EVGA Precision. Now with the ability to control fan speed and clocks, It works much better.

4 out of 5 eggs Awesome Everyday CPU...Plus A Little More 10/25/2011

This review is from: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 Quad-Core 2.33 GHz LGA 775 95W BX80580Q8200 Processor

Pros: Low power consumption and it's a robust quad core. This thing can take a beating. I can and have put it in my pocket, stored it in a plastic baggie, dropped and even kicked and yet it's still going strong. I've tested this CPU countless times and still performs like it should.

Cons: Only 4MB Cache. Doesn't overclock well, in fact it seems to run slower when overclocked 5%.

Other Thoughts: Had to choose between this and the XEON X3210. I bended up buying both just in case.

CORSAIR Gaming Series GS600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sleeved cables makes cable management easy. Long cables for larger cases. Blue light creates a calming effect when not gaming, also illuminates back of case at night. Comes with more than enough zip ties. Quiet and powerful.

Cons: The 12V 4+4 plug sheath is a bit too close to the plug itself, making it difficult for those who need only 1 of the 2 plugs.

Other Thoughts: Bough this PSU to replace my ageing BFG Tech ES SERIES ES-800 800W. There's a noticeable difference in speed due to a lower wattage. I'm thinking of returning this one and buying a Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W PSU.
