PNY VCGGTX650T1XPB GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card WILL do 3 monitors by itself. I can play most if not all my games on high->ultra settings. This really wasn't a bad card for the price (~$120). Its small and would fit pretty nicely in almost any case. Only requires 1 PCI-E power plug.

Cons: This card seems to have a slight overheating problem. After a while of gaming on high->ultra settings, I sometimes get artifacts. Not little random ones here or there, my whole game freaks out. You can't see anything. The terrain is completely messed up. When playing FPS your gun goes invisible or graphics shoot out of it in all directions. The reported Temp actually isn't that high, but the card is obviously freaking out and having problems. Sometimes I can game for hours and not have a problem, sometimes I have nothing but problems. Also, both Newegg and PNY did NOTHING to help me. See Below.

Other Thoughts: I tried to RMA with Newegg within the 30 day time period, but because I didn't save the original box it was in when shipped (and therefor didn't have the UPC label/code) they refused my RMA. Then I tried to warranty it with PNY. They said they tested it for 40 hours on two machines and couldn't find a problem. They sent it back to me as is. This is after I provided proof with pictures of the artifacting. I'm just going to cut my losses at this point. Upgrade to a better EVGA when I can. NEVER GOING TO BUY PNY AGAIN!!!
-1 Egg for having artifact problems in the first place
-1 Egg for Newegg not accepting it because of UPC missing
-1 Egg for PNY not doing anything at all to help
I'm keeping 2 eggs on because it does to 3 monitors, and sometimes it works well enough to do what I want. It will get me buy till I can afford a much better card.

KWorld PlusTV PC to TV Converter SA235 USB 2.0 - View Your PC/Laptop Contents on TV
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does what it says. VGA to RCA conversion. So you can hook your laptop/desktop up to a TV and run programs. Way easy setup.

Cons: Gets a little hot, but that's normal. Resolution on TV isn't readable, that's also normal. Don't use the TV as your main screen. (So no Cons.) You can see what I think is the refresh bar go up it if you're paying attention, but that's not a big deal for me.

Other Thoughts: I use this device to run my laptop on the TV as a 2nd screen to watch my movies and TV shows that I've digitally backed up on my hard drives. Works like a champ.

Rosewill RX35MV-SU-D BLK 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice black case. Cheap, gets the job done.

Cons: Stand is very cheap plastic. The Hard drive feels like its going to wiggle out of the SATA connectors and fall to the other side of the case. Not very sturdy. Breaks easy.

Other Thoughts: I ended up buying a Galaxy Metal Gear case to replace this and it is so much better. More sturdy and actually feels like the drive is safe. This is an "ok" deal, but for like $3 more you can get something so much better.
