EVGA 01G-P3-1288-AR GeForce GTX 285 FTW Edition 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Relatively quiet, very high performance, single GPU.

Cons: Not as fast as the dual GPU solutions, expensive.

Other Thoughts: This is the fastest single GPU card on the market as of this writing. Higher performance models use SLI or Crossfire on the card, and come with their associated problems and difficulties.

While the performance increase over similar cards with lower clock speeds is modest, this unit offers performance without the tweaking hassle - and still lets you tweak to your heart's content.

ICY DOCK MB453SPF-B 3 in 2 SATA I, II & III Hot-Swap Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The price is attractive, and the company offers interchangable trays with its other SATA products, including options for E-SATA enclosures. Properly cabled it gives feedback as to drive failure and has a built-in overheat alarm that can be set at multiple temperatures.

Cons: This is a big unit, and is a tight fit into any chassis, almost as though it is a milimeter or so too large. The enormous depth meant that it barely fit into a 4U chassis. The cabling is also difficult to work with, located as it is right next to the rather large (and very much needed) fan housing.

Overall the downsides are not something unexpected on this type of product, and it doesn't loose an egg due to them.

Other Thoughts: SATA backplaines that are not specifically designed for the particular server chassis (and even some that are!) are known for having issues with the backplanes causing errors, slow performance and dropping drives, and so I was wary and careful, but I experienced no such issues on the ones I purchased.

PQI TURBO 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PQI26400-2GDB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Performs as RAM should and does work all the way up to advertised speeds.

Cons: Despite meeting all of the requirements, all the way down to the full timing list and voltage, this does not work in certain Intel boards as PC6400. Not PQI's problem per se, but I would have thought they would have ensured compatibility with the popular OEM boards if only for the upgrader market from retail systems.

Other Thoughts: Heatspreaders are a bit tacky, would have perfered something with more substance and less flashy, but they do the job.
