Pros: Great range and signal strength. Used this card in a desktop clear on the other side of the house and it picks up the signal just fine. Recovers from standby almost instantly, and I haven't experienced a dropped connection yet.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: Vista did not automatically recognize the drivers for this card... had to use the CD included with the package. This isnt an issue for me, and I'm still used to the Windows 98 days when driver installation was primarily manual anyways. Just recently upgraded to Vista actually... for better or worse :)
Replaced my USB wireless adapter with this card, and am very happy I did so. Was experiencing a lot of dropped connections and slow connection speeds with the external USB adapter I had before. Probably just a poorly balanced antenna.
This card is not the most expensive or the highest-end available, but it works perfectly for my older desktop.
Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
Intel Core2Duo 2.0GHz E4400
2GB DDR2 memory
Nvidia GeForce GT520 1GB
Pros: Powerful for the price, plays all the games that I wanted to play on medium/high settings. Oblivion, StarCraft II, Splinter Cell Convictions, Resident Evil 5, and Call of Duty are all running on at LEAST meduim settings at playable FPS.
Cons: The fan is loud. My system went from barely audible to noticable after the installation of this card. It's not a deal-breaker, and it's not THAT loud, but you will hear this card.
Other Thoughts: My system is not the most powerful in the world, which is why I was supprised that all of the aboved mentioned games were running so smoothly.
2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4400

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite Power - 460W Power Supply
Pros: Great PSU for the money, after rebate. 460w is plenty to run everything I need it for (Core2Duo + GT 520). I am updating a budget build a put together about 2 years ago, and this was the last piece to get everything running smoothly.
Fan is very quiet... it's never even been audible under load with HD videos.
Cons: None, ATM.
Other Thoughts: First CoolerMaster I've owned, and I'm a fan so far. Came with all the hardware and cables I needed, and was an easy install. All around a good buy.READ FULL REVIEW
