This review is from: Rosewill RTK-ASM Anti-Static Mat
Pros: This is an excellent, well made mat worth the price. It does not feel flimsy or cheap in any way.
Has a Smooth Anti-ESD side and nice no-slip padding on the back.
Other Thoughts: Some will complain it doesn't allow an Anti-ESD wrist strap to connect to it, but I had a wrist strap that I connected to the case. I felt double secure and double grounded.
Get a basic PC repair kit with an Anti-ESD wrist trap along with this mat if you don't have one already.
Pros: Installed easily in my very generic off brand mid-tower case (It's black says ULTRA on the front and has 120mm fans).
I can't tell you how it runs Crysis 10 or Battlefield 35 because I don't play those. I can tell you that:
World of Tanks averages 40 FPS on Max settings
Shogun II Averages 50 FPS on Ultra
Rome II Doesn't do very well on Extreeme (20 FPS) but I blame Creative Assembly for not optimising it like they did Shogun II. Rome II runs better on Ultra (30 FPS)
ARMA II 60 FPS on Full settings
Everything else I play, it pretty much blows away with excellent framerates on the highest settings. I believe everyone who says The Battlefield games or Crysis or Bioshock: Infinite run great on this card. And I'm sure this card will handle The Division later this year.
Cons: Creative Assembly programs for Intel first.
Other Thoughts: This is a great card. I am very pleased with my purchase and If I get a deal on this card in the future, I will try an SLI setup.I don't notice any more noise than with any other PC with 6 fans running at once. No overheating issues.

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Pros: It's Windows 7. After unsing Vista for years I am happy for the clean interface of this OS. Vista had its issues, but it soldiered on for me until I was able to upgrade.
Stable, easy GUI installation environment, no compatiability issues to speak of.
Other Thoughts: I would have gone Ultimate, but it was too pricey for me and I'm sure I won't need the extra features it provides.
If you are thinking Win 7 Home is the way to go because of the price STOP. Get Pro at the very least. You will be happy you did. Whatever feature attracting you to Win 7 Home can be downloaded to Win 7 Pro from microsoft's Website.
