AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 8 cheap cores, eats up handbrake dvd to avi. Good for multi player gaming.

Cons: No better than PII at 3.6ghz SP if not worse in some games. Heatsinkfan as always makes a lovely paper weight or scrap aluminum.

Other Thoughts: Bought BF then $16 cheaper cyber Monday 12:06am scummy pricing practices on Newegg's part.

I wouldn't say this is much of an upgrade it is actually a down grade for FC3 and Grid3 in SP even at 4.3ghz.

Ps, with a real HSF ie tuniq tower 120 it doesn't run hot at all same as PII 40c under load.

Mediasonic HP1-SU3 USB 3.0 2 Port External USB 3.0 PCI Express Card - LINUX Software RAID supported
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nothing special about it but it does do what it's supposed to. Power source is SATA plug-in now. Win 7 64 HP.

Cons: At $16 total shipped nothing to con about.

EVGA GeForce GTX 280 01G-P3-1282-RX 1GB 512-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It will play well at 1680x1050 and lower.

Cons: Needs a beefy 700w+ psu preferably single rail. 1920x1080 res is a bit tough on it now.

Other Thoughts: GTX 280 is not better than or even close to a 560ti.
GTX280 is just under an HD6850 I own both and own 2x6870s and have had a gtx570.

It is a good card but some comments are exaggerated to the point of lying.
