PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) DirectX 11 RVCGGTX465XXB 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Got the Black! Flashed the BIOS and bang! A GTX 470. On top of that, it is running at 800MHz totally stable. I got lucky with this one. On that note, I would like to say that I ran it at stock for a couple of days and was still happy with the performance for what I paid. Getting the Black was just a stroke of luck.

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: It comes with very little as far as packaging and adapters. IMHO, this is to be expected from a re-certified part. And the card came with scuffs on it which once again, I do not think is abnormal for the price. Please don't take away stars for this.

Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS Blue 12.1 MP 4X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Pictures are very good. Video is very good. Little thing is tough. Its first outing was a concert called Rock Fest. It was smashed in my pocket, and kicked to the ground a few times. Held a charge while in constent use for about 7 hours. Got a 16 GB card in it so I can take pictures and video all day long. :)

Cons: Price dropped $20 since I bought it. :(

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for something easy to use, high quality, and wont hurt your wallet very much, I recommend this camera. Oh, BTW, from the time you press the power button till the time you can take a picture is about 2 seconds. Great for not missing a thing.

XFX Radeon HD 5830 DirectX 11 HD-583X-ZAFV 1GB 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity

Pros: Fast. Great price. Wonderful at crunching BOINC.

Cons: Non so far.

Other Thoughts: I do use this for gaming sometimes. Can run CRYSIS at high settings with 8x AA with no problems. As for the heat problems that people are talking about, just turn up the fan speed! Since I crunch with it, I have it loaded at 96%-98% 24/7. Turned the fan speed up to 60% and it runs at 60C. A little fan noise is an acceptable trade off for this kind of performance.
