PNY Quadro NVS 295 VCQ295NVS-X16-DVI-PB 256MB 64-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easily handles 2 x 1920x1200 DVI monitors without breaking a sweat under linux (rhel 4.6) using the nvidia-drivers. Doesn't have a fan, which is a big plus, because I've had 2 GPU fans break on me and others which were way too noisy.

Cons: Probably not great at 3D rendering, but we don't care--we use it for designing semiconductors, not for playing World of Warcraft.

Other Thoughts: Wish it weren't so pricey

Galaxy GeForce 9500 GT DirectX 10 95TGE8DC1CUM 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's cheap.

Cons: Watch out! Instead of shipping the Dual-DVI card, they might ship you the single-DVI single-VGA variant. To make matters more confusing, the manufacturer (Galaxy) apparently uses the same part number for both variants (i.e. 95TGE8DC1CUM).

Newegg made good and gave me a complete refund.

Other Thoughts: I wish they had a passively-cooled card that cheap--I seem to be having a lot of problems with fans on graphics cards failing.

ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

3 out of 5 eggs 14% slower than another vendor's board 10/12/2010

This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Everything worked flawlessly. Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz LGA 1366 installed without a problem, recognized the 24 GB (G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333). Ran memtest86+ for 48 hours without a problem. Booted RHEL 4.6 with kernel 2.6.28 w/out a problem.

Cons: Didn't perform as well as an identical system (albeit with a different vendor's motherboard) (same CPU, same RAM). The ASUS came in 14% slower.

Other Thoughts: I didn't tweak the BIOS on this Board or the other vendor's board (other than to change the IDE setting to AHCI and to change certain boot options (e.g. quiet boot, no; quick boot, no).

The ASUS offers much more options to overclock than the other vendor; it's highly possible, with the right settings, that this mobo could match or even outperform the other board.
