Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This has got to be the fastest drive I've ever had for the money. Loaded Windows before I could ever get out of the seat.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I could have gotten a WD Black and saved money but it was going to be for gaming so I think I made the right choice.

Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a very well thought out case. Good ventilation. lots of room to build that beast gaming computer that I was thinking of. The inside is made of metal and not all plastic like allot that I have seen.

Cons: Didn't like the screw that it came with. A bit cheep. One time use kind of thing.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again.

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

Pros: I think booting up on the first try is a Pro. As much trouble as I have had outting together some of the 680i boards I have had nothing but sucess with this board. Features are pletiful even though you might not use them all. This board has gone well past the burn in time and is still very stable and glitch free. Tweeking this board is easy and will not make the baord unstable. I did not have any need to call Asus for support at all. My personal opinion is that those that have so much trouble just have bad memory or a bad CPU. Bad CPU's don't happen very offten but do occure.

Cons: I still don't like the CPU cooling fan and that is not a fault of the board. Get and after market cooler. No ther cons that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: As you see in other reviews some have had to insulate the board from the case mounts. I have found that this is a good idea for all boards these days. I suggest that you do this to all installs needed or not. This also has the ability to help avoid your board from being hit by power surges. By the board. If you use it for gaming I don't feel you'll be sorry. Use the suggested memory. I used the Corsair Dominator. It's Awsome!
