AMD Phenom II X3 720 Triple-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM3 95W HDZ720WFGIBOX Black Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is by far the best build that I have done. Like most, I achieved an overclock to 3.7 on air. Paired w/ a DFI 790FX mobo. I have the 0904 chip, but unable to see fourth core probably due to the 790fx, oh well. Set the times in the bios to cpu= X18, HTT= X14, FSB=205. Voltages are CPU= 1.45, SB= 1.3, DRAM= 2.08, NB= 1.33, PCIE= 1.32, HTT= 1.33.

Cons: 1) Didn't install itself.
2) Wasn't free.
3) 790FX doesn't see fourth core.

Other Thoughts: Be careful on memory. I had issues w/ memory. Currently using 2gb of Reaper OCZ2RPR2G1066. NOT the crossfire edition!!! The crossfire edition would not work!!! It was SUPPOSED to be 1066, not the case. other than that, can't go wrong this proc!!!

GIGABYTE GeForce 8800 GT DirectX 10 GV-NX88T512HPV1 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have had this card for OVER a year, running 24/7. From day 1 I have had it overclocked to 720/1875/1025 using Riva Tuner. The card idles @ 36C, and under full load @ 52C. My room temp is 72F. I can run every game at 16AA/16AF, high quality & w/ supersampling 1680X1050. This is the best card that I have EVER purchased! Can't wait to Sli this badboy!

Cons: I only wished that I would have been more patient, prices have come down soooo much. Also, wish that it came w/ a better game, or no game & lower price.

Other Thoughts: My current system: Antec 900, Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe, FX60 (running @ 2.98Ghz; idle 32C / load 46C), 2Gb G.Skill PC3200 (running @ PC3500), OCZ Gamestream 700w PSU, CoolerMaster Hyper6 heatsink, 2X Seagate 320Gb RAID0 & this rockin card!

NZXT ROGUE Crafted Series BLACK ROGUE w. BLUE LED Black Aluminum MicroATX Desktop Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: LOT'S of room inside, excellent cooling capabilities, and included fan filters!!! No more dust bunnies on my components.

Cons: Although well crafted, it is a little rough around the edges. but overall a very pleasant case to work with.

Other Thoughts: This has got to be the biggest little case that I am buiding, or have EVER worked with. Was quite shocked when my eyes first saw it. Even my wife sais Whoa!!! That little case is HUGE! Now waiting ever so patiently for a uATX 790GX mobo to finish this up!
