Corsair Accelerator Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Without doing any benchmark, the speed seem very similar Vertex 3 in my laptop. Where you see it the most is in boot time. This ssd is inexpensive and seems perfect for my sata II computer.

Took some time but got it working

Cons: All people that install this SSD should know that they have to put AHCI mode, IDE or PATA leads to corrupted partition after some time.
I did a fresh ghost before installing the ssd and did I do a good move there ? No because after I got my data corrupted, I learned that ssd needs AHCI mode in the bios and therefore I couldn't use my ghost but only a fresh install. At least I got my data back.
There is ways to transfer a IDE windows installation to AHCI on the web, something like changing the hard-drive drivers in device manager but it didn't work for me and isn't officially supported.
Good luck

Other Thoughts: Remember to put your Sata controler to AHCI in the bios, it is very important if you don't want to be swearing later.

ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GT DirectX 10 ZT-98GES5P-FDL 512MB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low cost on shell shocker
Lifetime warranty under subscription

Cons: Never got any news of the MIR send 3 months ago
128 bit bus really hurts performance this card is far from the performance of my HD4850 very far, get a 256 bits memory bus size it's a lot more important than quantity of memory
Mirror edge wasn't smooth with settings at low/med and 1080P

Other Thoughts: Got it to replace my hd4850 until I received the new one from RMA
It's now in my girlfriend pc
Didn't saw the memory bus only the lower memory speed

AMD Sempron 140 Sargas Single-Core 2.7 GHz Socket AM3 45W SDX140HBGQBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low wattage cpu
Low cost
Can be unlocked sometimes which wasn't my case

Cons: Cpu heatsink really is poor, the fan is pretty loud for a such a low wattage cpu, cpu get to 45Celsius in micro atx case with medium airflow, if you have a old amd heatsink (socket 754 and up) I suggest you put this one

Other Thoughts: Like mentionned in the cons if you unlock the 240 think about getting a new heatsink and fan
