Pros: It's a great value in a high power supply
Cons: You don't want a high power supply if you're building a low-end system and want to minimize power consumption.
Other Thoughts: Note that I'm only running one video card (Zotac GTS 250) at the moment; my review would be more trustworthy if I'd been running two for some time. But it's also a Core i7 system so native power draw is fairly high, and the case (the XCLIO blue fan case) is staying cool.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's memory. Cost effective memory. Reliable cost effective memory. Reliable cost effective three-channel memory. 6 GB of reliable cost effective three-channel memory.
Cons: You can't look at it after you install it in the case and it's kind of pretty.
Other Thoughts: You really, really, want 6 GB of memory. Even if you're running a 32 bit OS, but you should be running a 64 bit OS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It pushes pixels to a monitor. Without drawing a lot of power.
Cons: As of Feb '09, this wasn't the card to buy. It'll never again be the card to buy. I thought from the spec it'd drive a DVI-D monitor (30" LCD) but noo, not at all. It doesn't make sense to me to buy this card for any reason; a few more dollars gets you a lot more capability, and a hundred more dollars gets you an order of magnitude more capability (e.g., Zotac GTS250)READ FULL REVIEW
