EVGA 512-P3-N977-TR GeForce 9800 GT Superclocked Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: I just gotta say that I love this card. I can max out the graphics on L4D2, DiRT2, Fallout 3, and I can finally get GTAIV to work. Torchlight was always easy to run but it looks even better. All games achieve 60 fps consistently. I upgraded from an 8600gts and the results are incredible. Even dvd's, AVI's and mp4's look a lot better.

Intel i7 2.66

Cons: The fan is slightly louder than the one on my 8600, but that one was basically silent. So I'll say it's audible, but if I turn up my case fans those sound way louder. This is not a problem for me, but if you are looking for absolute silence you may be annoyed.

Other Thoughts: I bought this particular card because it was one of the only ones that fit my minimum requirements and still only took up a single slot on the mobo. This was because I didn't think my case could fit one of those double slot cards. Well, both length and width wise my case has enough room. If I had known that I probably would have just spent the extra $30 or $40 and gotten a slightly more muscular card. However, this really is a great card for just a little over $100 so I have no complaints!

Pros: This is a super quiet drive, have not heard it make a peep. So far this drive is faster and more responsive than the Plextor drives I've owned in the past. It recognizes all my discs very quickly. The dvd laser in my last drive was dying and would only recognize about every other disc I put in, so that's a nice change. I occasionally rip and burn cd's and dvd's, but mostly I'll be using this drive for the playback movies and such on my HTPC. This is the best drive I've ever used for that purpose.

Cons: None, thank you Lite-On.

Other Thoughts: I had a major problem with the Plextor drive I was using, sometimes during the playback of concert dvds there would be an short hiccup in the audio and video about every few minutes. This is especially annoying during the middle of a song as you can imagine. So far I've played the new At the Gates dvd in 5.1 for twenty minutes and it has been flawless. This is the third dvd I've tried so far and they have all worked great.

4 out of 5 eggs Everything great except for one thing. 12/19/2009

This review is from: Rosewill RCW-H9012 - Mini-Stereo to RCA Audio Cable - 6 Feet

Pros: Works great.

Cons: Mini-stereo side too fat to fit next to the other mini-stereo connectors of the soundcard. Had to whittle the rubber down to make it fit.
