Most Favorable Review

I love these.

Turtle Beach Ear Force X-52 Circumaural 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
Turtle Beach Ear Force X-52 Circumaural 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset

Pros: Comfortable. Affordable. Great sound quality. I upgraded from the HPA2 earforces that i bought a couple years back. These are way better and much cheaper.

Cons: It doesn't give me a car.

Overall Review: I'd definitely recommend to anyone who wants 5.1 surround sound and comfortable headset all in one to buy these.

Most Critical Review

Defective/DOA

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80569Q9450
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80569Q9450

Pros: I can't make a judgement.

Cons: After thorough testing either my motherboard or CPU is shorted.

Overall Review: First intel experience and it was quite odd but im willing to try it again...

Graphics are nice--sound doesn't work

Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card NE5X56T01142-1041F
Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card NE5X56T01142-1041F

Pros: Decent card, smaller than my 4870, 2 GB of VRAM, seems to play just fine so far.

Cons: My sound doesn't work now...don't know why.

Overall Review: Good buy, got two free games, just can't enjoy until I get my sound working again.

Suitable replacement

XFX Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card HD-487A-YWFC

Pros: Smaller than my sapphire 4870 I had originally. My original sapphire 4870 had eventually burnt itself out after 10 months of ownership due to a design flaw, but ran well when I did have it. I RMA'd through newegg and they recommended this as a replacement. Runs just as great if not a little better than my previous 4870 model.

Cons: Doesn't blow air out the back like traditional video cards. I recommend buying an external fan to blow air into your case or have really good case cooling. Other than that no cons.

Overall Review: Takes up less room than the sapphire tech 4870 I had. It's a discontinued model so I can't really give any references to other uses so they can compare designs. I'm running this on XP and I game heavily and underload it steadies out at 64-65 Celsius but once I quit gaming it quickly cools off thanks to my huge fan. I'd recommend this card for people who want the power of a 4870 in a smaller package.

Woot?

Pros: Picked up on my MOBO no problem just had to change a BIOS option for it to let me install Windows XP

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Its not a terabyte :D but hey its a nice harddrive. Ive used Western Digital in all my previous setups and will continue to do so.
