NETGEAR WNDR3700-100NAS V.5 Wireless Gigabit Open Source Router/ USB port Rangemax 2.4/5 GHz Simultaneous N600 Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Too easy to setup; my mom can hook this thing up.
Dual band.
Netgear name brand.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I recently moved to downtown Chicago from the suburbs. While I was living in the suburbs, I had a cheap $20 router that got the job done. I was getting about 40+ mpbs out of the 50mpbs that I was paying for (Comcast). This was a 2.4ghz router wireless N router.

After moving to the downtown Chicago area, however, my old router could not handle the congested area. Almost everyone is on the 2.4 frequency and I was getting 10mbps out of my 50mpbs when I was THREE feet away from my old router. I updated firmware, changed channels and use a DOCSIS 3.0 modem but no dice.

I purchased this router and now I'm getting 54mpbs out of the 50mbps that I'm paying for. The range is great. If I'm far away and between a lot of walls, I'm getting about 38mpbs. I'm fine with that. Also, I play games online with ZERO lag while my girlfriend watches Netflix and surfs the web in the other room. We also have smartphones connected to WiFi and there are no problems.

This is worth the money. If you live in a congested city, or are looking for strong range, this is a worthy of every dollar Netgear is asking for.

This is a good product and I would buy it again.

NETGEAR RangeMax WNR1000 Wireless Router IEEE 802.11 b/g 2.4 GHz with 4-Port Ethernet Switch

Pros: Easy setup. Looks slick.

Cons: DO NOT purchase this router if you have Comcast or high speed Internet. This will get the job done if you are paying for about 10mbps. If you get 50mbps, from Comcast for example, avoid.

Max speed is 13mbps.

Other Thoughts: I updated firmware, changed channels and I am 3 feet away from router. I have a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, too.

Thought since I had a small apartment that this would get the job done. Save yourself trouble and money, and just get a dual band router.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7770 DirectX 11 100358VXL 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: - Good value if you can't afford to step into the $200ish price range.

- Works great with AMD's A10 CPU. Coupled with said processor, it scores a 7.7 in WEI

- I can run any game on the market on High / Ultra.

Cons: - This is not a loud card, by any means. It also isn't deadly silent, either. You should hardly notice it, though.

Other Thoughts: Got this for my brother's CPU. Made a fresh build using AMD's A10 CPU. All in all, I spent less than $550 and got the new Storm Scout case, 8GB of DDR3 and a 1TB HD.

The computer scores 7.3 - 7.7, with the latter being graphics and gaming. Played Witcher 2 on Ultra. Starcraft 2 on Ultra. BF3 on High (with some ultra).

Honestly, for a complete build with a quality case for $550, you can't beat this. If you're reading this review, it's because you can't / don't want to spend $200+ on the next tier cards. The difference is .2 in WEI.
