Corsair Graphite Series 230T CC-9011042-WW Black on Black with RED LED fans ATX Mid Tower Side Panel Window l  Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very impressed with the metalworking accuracy and solidity of this case. Fine accessibility from both case sides and L and R sides have an easy removal and reattachment, not prone to getting in the wrong track. Front switches and audio jacks are the opposite of flimsy, they're tough and will last. Fan mounting options are nice. PSU mounting is positive and accurate.

Cons: Not a lot of cable management features.

Other Thoughts: I doubt there is any competition in cable management around this price, so not much of a con.

Intel Pentium E6600 Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.06GHz LGA 775 65W BX80571E6600 Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast* and reliable, overclockable with negligible thermal penalty, and cost-effective.

*relative to $ outlay

Cons: None in this budget range.

Other Thoughts: As an advocate of trailing edge tech, I got an E2180 as the initial processor for my GA-P35-DS3R 2.0 (late 2007) In May of 2012, I pepped up that machine with a new E6600 and am very pleased. There are many options with this combination for overclocking, and the combo is very stable with the stock heat sink/fan, hardly ever budging past 41C at +20% ~ + 30%. I expect YMMV but this "Pentium Dual Core" (don't ask me what the contrast is with a Core 2 Duo)
is a good way to add some pep to a "mature" system.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This drive specs out quite fast. It is cool and is very quiet, especially compared to the Seagate 7200.9 160GB it is replacing. The former drive was reliable but in addition to the extra space, the performance boost, coolness and quiet of 7200.12 is welcome. Admittedly you can pay a little more and get slightly better specs but this drive fills a niche.

Cons: no demerits yet
