This review is from: Intel BLKD945GTPLKR LGA 775 Intel 945G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Used this board to make a low end system with spare parts i had laying around. Everything came together and booted up with no problems. 4 Ram slots
Cons: Not a tweakers board at all....so overclocking is no go. ( I knew that going in ). The audio for this board is odd. Front and rear audio cant be hooked up at the same time. Was so confused as to why sound was only coming out the front jacks, the drivers didnt even detect that the rear port even existed. Unplugged the front audio header from the mobo now the back works.....odd. Unless im missing something here? Not used to working on Intel stuff
Other Thoughts: Not sure if the board is defective or its some kind of bug in the drivers....not a huge deal because headphones can just be plugged in to the speakers but still. Everything else works fine tough and i was able to make a nice lil budget box out of it.

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox 360 VGA HD AV Cable
Pros: Great picture , looks great on my Olevia 37incher , frees up some component slots for other consoles
Cons: At first i didnt see much of a difference from component but after some tweaking and setting it to
13XX x 768 i did! Also they say it upscales regular DvDs but i saw no difference ( maybe it requires a trained eye , who knows ). I should have got Hdmi instead............
Other Thoughts: ...... but whatever I'm still going to buy Hdmi cables so i have the means of hooking it up to my Pc monitor when i feel like tearing it up on LIVE and the girl wants to watch Tv or something , lol:). Bottom line is , if you purchased your 360 late in the summer and have Hdmi output just get those.....if not , Vga is the next best thing , but the difference is not night and day mind you...... at least not on my TV ( h0ly run-on sentence!! lol ). If your on a budget though , save yourself some money and just stick with the components........they will get the job done 99 percent of time. Just use those hard earned dollars on another game or another controller. It still gets a five thoughREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast , accurate , attractive , and comfortable! The green glow matches my case. Makes a world difference in my gaming compared to my old cheap Microsoft mouse
Cons: Basically all the negative reviews i see on here i had the same problems.....light staying on after the system shuts down , having to replug it in after reboots, ect. Apparently this ships with really old drivers and firmware.........after upgrading both to the most recent ones, ALL OF THOSE PROBLEMS DISAPPEAR..........
Other Thoughts: ........I run Xp media center if anybody is interested. But to sum this up, this mouse is flawless if you take the steps to upgrade the firmware and drivers. Best mouse i ever ownedREAD FULL REVIEW
