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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
