Palit NE5X570SF10DA GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) Sonic 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs ... Well... TBH it doesn't really seem to keep up with the fact that it's only a step down from the top tier consumer video card out there (GTX 580) but it runs stuff good

Cons: I have SERIOUS issues (at least once a day) with this card just randomly crashing when I play games (at least once a day on League of Legends, and today in an hour it's crashed like 4 times on Dragon Age II) on top of that I bought the sonic platinum version for my wife's computer. Both video cards give the same identical problems on 2 completely different computers with none of the same hardware except the RAM.

Other Thoughts: I also sent one of the video cards off to be looked at by PALIT because of how bad this issue got with the Sonic Platinum, and my warranty to RMA it with Newegg had already expired. I detailed them the serious issues I was having, they didn't send me a different video card or anything just sent it back with the message "Your GTX570 Sonic video card has been fully tested several time in different Operation Systems. Its performance is good in our testing system. Therefore, we will send the card back to you. Your problem may be caused by the driver or other hardware failure. Please contact our Tech support to check your configuration." Two separate computers, no identical configurations, her EVGA GTX 260 has been up pretty much 100% of the time since we put it back in compared to my 570 still crashing almost daily until I can afford to get rid of this paper weight, which the sonic platinum already is since I can't get a refund from these guys.

Creative HS-1200 USB Connector Circumaural Digital Wireless Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great headphones, charge fairly quickly and last for quite awhile, bendable mic so you can adjust for if you are loud or quiet. I used to own a wired usb logitech headset that broke, these imho are more comfortable, superb surround sound, and better talk quality, I use them to listen to music and talk on ventrillo regularly and theyre great.

Cons: After a couple hours the earpieces can start to hurt, would have been nice if they had gone with a slightly bigger earphone that the ear can fit inside of, but nothing that can be done there. Otherwise amazing

Other Thoughts: Good headset, no major cons, I approve

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Awesome case, the 2 front fans do amazing at keeping the HD's cool. The top and rear fan together equally as good of a job at cooling the video card and all others as well since I have a 9800 GTX so it gets hot during gameplay. The id2ea of putting the power supply at the bottom was ingenious as well doing a great job at taking all the heat the fans push down and pushingit out the back.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wish it had came with an extra fan for the slot in the door, butno matter I'll buy one later
