Pros: Small, cheap, and fairly powerful. One of the few modern cards that still has a VGA slot on the back.
Cons: Like most gigabyte cards, has aggravating coil whine. I fixed mine by using a frame limiter in msi afterburner and I've read some people with gigabyte cards fix theirs by increasing the voltage. This is an ongoing problem with all Gigabyte cards that Gigabyte is aware of that they have no intention of fixing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hanns-G HL163ABB Black 16" Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 500:1
Pros: This is really a great monitor, assuming you know what you're buying and what you want it for. I'm the type that prefers smaller monitors to leave less of a physical footprint in my workspace. I also wanted something lightweight that would complement my mini itx system for LAN parties, and let me tell you, this thing is about as heavy as a piece of paper and really easy to carry around.
Smaller, lower resolution monitors, like this one, also have the advantage of not stressing your PC as much as a 1920x1080 monitor. Coupled with a lower resolution, I can run games at the same fps with a 650 ti as someone with a gtx 670 would run on a 1920x1080. Something to think about.

Pros: It's small. Good signal strength.
Cons: Terrible speeds unless you're right next to the router, but even then you lose two-thirds of your actual bandwidth. I'd get 5 bars, even when downstairs, but my bandwidth would drop to 50 kb/s. Not plug-and-play at all, but instead uses faulty realtek software and drivers. Sometimes, the device itself would just refuse to ping any server but remain connected to the router, as if everything was fine. I spend hours troubleshooting and could not improve my speeds.
Other Thoughts: There are a hundred other internet adapters you could buy on this site that suck just as much as this one but cost far less.READ FULL REVIEW
