GIGABYTE GV-N66TWF2-2GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked ok for over a year.

Cons: About 1 1/2 years later, this piece of junk crashes and won't display anything. Called Gigabyte and they refused to RMA over the phone. Tried to RMA on website and the website says that it is out of warranty, even though product was advertised as having a 3 year warranty.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor Dual-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM2 125W Processor ADX6400CZBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast, and an unbeatable price for the performance. This gets 4 stars mostly for the excellent price.

Cons: The stock fan/heatsink, don't do the job under full load. It gets a little toasty and then the fan gets really really loud. At idle the cpu fan is fairly quiet, but a little louder than the psu. At full load, (software decode of 1080p) it get's obnoxiously loud. If you are using in an htpc, you will need to find a work around for the noise.

Other Thoughts: I turned on cool and quiet feature on my mobo, which slows the clock speed and cpu fan down. It stays really quiet under full load with cool and quiet turned on, and it is still faster than what I need most of the time. I also use the video card hardware decode for 1080p now, so it stays quiet for htpc use. I am thinking that if I need to get some extra fps out of a newer game, I will have to break down and get an aftermarket heatsink and fan.

ASUS EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great card for the money. Only requires a single 6 pin connector. Awesome 3d gaming. Can hardware decode 1080p 264 with the right player.

Cons: kind of large, but what do you expect for a powerful card?

Other Thoughts: I'm not a big fan of cyberlink and powerdvd, so I had to do some searching on google to find a player besides cyberlink's that would make use of hardware decode. Once I did, I can play 1080p without heat or noise. Difficulty finding a player isn't so much a problem with the card itself as it is a problem with the mess of codecs and players out there.
