Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-620 620W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of power
Lots of cables

Cons: Sitting in the bottom of my PC case the power supply draws air from the opening in the bottom of the case. However, the power supply sits updside down in order to accommodate this fit. When you look at the back of my PC, the sticker/tag/nameplate for the power supply is inverted. It's an aesthetic issue only.

The fan inside the power supply makes a loud ticking noise. VERY annoying as it happens 2 - 3 times per second and is almost continuous.

5 out of 5 eggs Solid 3 01/30/2012

This review is from: OCZ Solid 3 SLD3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC

Pros: Fast!
Resistant to changes in air pressure (unlike spinning HDD)
Resistant to changes in temperature (unlike spinning HDD)
Resistant to shock (unlike spinning HDD)
Installing software is actually fun
Light weight
Uses less electricity than spinning HDD
Small (2.5" FF)

Cons: Cost per gigabyte
Limited read/write cycles

Other Thoughts: This is the second of these drives that I've purchased. I liked it so much in my desktop gaming rig that I put one in my wife's laptop when it's spinning HDD failed. So far so good. The performance and reliability boost is nice. I can't believe manufacturers are still putting fragile spinning HDD's in laptops because they suck more battery power and are prone to failure due to dropping. It's criminal!

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 01G-P3-1460-KR 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Excellent graphics
- Overclocking
- Doesn't take up a huge amount of space inside case
- Integrated fan cooling

Cons: - Games freeze now and then
- Built-in fan cooling probably isn't sufficient when overclocking
- Somewhat large

Other Thoughts: When the graphics are working, they are great, even at the highest resolutions, I still pull 70 frames per second. Unforunately, graphics in games I have been playing freeze up now and then. Games include League of Legends, Team Fortress 2, and Lord of the Rings Online. I verified that I have the overclocking set at the default level, so I'm not actually overclocking, but graphics still froze while sound was still working in game. Had to restart PC and I let it cool down for a bit.
