2.5’’  300GB VelociRaptor WD3000BLFS  10000 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked fine for a few months, sped up load times on an old AMD 939 system for the duration it functioned.

Cons: Died, completely without warning. SMART status still reported "Good", yet it started to make the click of death randomly and then died immediately afterwards. Is not readable by anything.

It lasted ~2 months and I paid $30 for it on sale, so I'm not overly annoyed. At the current price point, however, I would urge caution to prospective buyers. Yours could be just fine, or you could get unlucky like I did.

Other Thoughts: Usually refurb items from Newegg are just fine, this is the first one I've had fail me so completely and quickly.

GIGABYTE Super Overclock Series GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11.1 GV-N680SO-2GD 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Replaced a factory oc'd 6970 and the difference is amazing. Runs cool and pushes 2560x1600 FC3, Skyrim and others without any issue.

Best video card I've ever bought. Super high quality construction as well, the feel of the metal and PCB is excellent.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately my current system uses a Sandy Bridge cpu, so I am unable to take advantage of PCI-e 3.0 speeds. Even so, with my OC'd i7 2600k this card makes me a happy gamer.

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.7 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ980FBK4DGM Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This thing is great. I went from a X2 555 that i'd OC'd to 3.7GHz to this and the difference 2 cores make is immense. It also does not run significantly hotter, the aftermarket heatsink I use (a Scythe that i can't remember the exact model for) is so large that even without a fan directly attached to the heatsink itself temps stay around 49-52 degrees Celsius under full load.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you have an aging AM3 (non plus) mobo and want to breathe some life into it until you feel like dropping the money on a new system then this is an excellent CPU to use!
