Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Extremely slow write speeds, died after 2 1/2 months.

Other Thoughts: Never buying Corsair products again.

Western Digital WD Green WD8000AARS 800GB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, great price, decent amount of storage.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive knowing full well it was a Green drive, and would be a bit slower than my other drives. I didn't need another Black drive, and purchased this primarily for storage.

If you need a storage drive, and don't care about speed, this, as well as other Green drives should serve your needs perfectly.

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ550WFGIBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quick, best price:performance CPU out there currently, runs fairly cool.

Cons: It can't make me a sandwich.

Other Thoughts: I managed to unlock the disabled cores, and I've got this overclocked to 3.5ghz on air. It's running 35C Idle, and I've never seen it go above mid 40s. Haven't had the chance to really push it, and I don't see myself pushing it very far in the near future.

Great buy, highly recommended.
