Pros: This card will run any game I've tried from 2009 or older at medium settings with 20+ FPS. Not amazing, but very decent for the price.
Cons: It's passive cooling is silent, but much less effective than with a fan. I wouldn't mind if it was a bit louder if it didn't run so hot.
Other Thoughts: Like RC, I expected this to outperform my old 8500 GT. Turns out, it's roughly equivalent. Oh well, it was part of a bundle, so I won't complain.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast; what else to say?
Cons: This processor runs hot. With the stock heat sink/fan, a Prime95 torture test got this well above 90C.
Other Thoughts: I bought a fancier heat sink and after proper installation, I couldn't get this thing to reach 80C.
Be sure to keep your computer clean and well-ventilated, and the heat shouldn't cause much trouble.
Pros: There's lots of room inside.
HDD bay fan works well to keep hard drives cool.
It isn't super heavy, in my opinion.
Cons: It arrived fairly bent up on the back edges, preventing one of the side panels from closing securely, and those panels aren't the sturdiest around.
The fans are very loud. I keep this computer running 24/7 in my room and when I rarely turn it off, I'm amazed by the silence.
The expansion bays may be a bit out of spec(my wireless card pops out of its slot when the screws are tightened completely), but that also might just be the card.
The front USB ports/audio jack panel seems to be upside down. The USB ports are, anyway.
Other Thoughts: It works. The PSU is fine for most needs and has never given me trouble. Despite the bent case, I trust that my components are safe inside it. The power LED is a very bright blue, so keep that in consideration.READ FULL REVIEW
