DYNAPOWER USA Hachiman CS-HM41602.1266 Black/ Red SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450W ATX12V 2.01 for AMD and Intel system including LGA775 Power Supply

Pros: Well built solid case easy to install everything. It acually has a usefull LCD as opposed to other cases I've used.

Cons: Not really a con but a heads up. I had to remove the plastic retainer clip in order to install a 8800gtx. No big deal as I wanted to screw it in anyway. Also there is no plate blocking the floppy drive port so if you don't use a floppy there's a hole there I have about16 old floppy drives so I just put one in.

Overall Review: I gotta a chuckle from the manual as the translation isn't very good however I would recommend this case and would buy again. As normal newegg rocks.

Most Critical Review

Died after 4 months

Vizta V27CDH1 27" Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz VGA HDMI Built-in Speakers Backlit LED LCD Monitor

Pros: Was fine when it worked

Cons: Monitor started to get horizontal lines on the bottom that slowly creep up to the middle of the screen over time. Of course I'm not able to return because that window had passed. Will not by this brand again.

Overall Review: No absolutely not. Many have had the same issue.

Nice lappy for the money

DELL Laptop Latitude E6400 Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz) 4GB Memory 160GB HDD 0 GB SSD 14.0" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Pros: For a refurb this thing had no visable marks from previous use.

Cons: The battery that came with it is a dud. It only lasts about 30 mins from a full charge.

Overall Review: When buying a refurb product somtimes you roll the dice but in this case I feel I came out ahead in spite of the battery as I will use it plugged in 99% of the time.

Cheap Keyboard

Rosewill Gaming Keyboard RK-8100, Anti-Ghosting feature, Fully programmable keys, 10 profiles setting
Rosewill Gaming Keyboard RK-8100, Anti-Ghosting feature, Fully programmable keys, 10 profiles setting

Pros: Nice features, good feel to the keys

Cons: To start with this keyboard makes my computer hang on the MB splash screen, I have to hit the + button on the numberpad in order to get it to post. I could live with that. Also the "W" + "A" {Forward,Left}button wont work together nor will the "S" + "A" {Backward,Left} In other words this keyboard won't let you side strafe in games. This is unacceptable.

Overall Review: I'm really disappointed. I have purchased many Rosewill products in the past. In fact I find thier usb network adapters to be among the best so I went seeking a keyboard from them. This one is a lemon.

Awesome Board

BIOSTAR TA790GXE 128M AM3/AM2+ AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
BIOSTAR TA790GXE 128M AM3/AM2+ AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Solid board. Plenty of overclocking features in bios.

Cons: Wish it came with a mosfet cooler. The bios that ships with these isn't the best. Can't play gutair as well as Eddie Van Halen (but who can?)

Overall Review: I have 2 of these boards one with a Phenom II X2 545 Callisto and the other with a Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Purchased about 6 months apart. I was able to unlock the 2 extra cores in both. One thing to note is the bios that shipped with both boards sucks so the first thing I would suggest is to head over to the biostar website and dload and flash to the lastest bios. I'm using 78DFAA26.BST(beta)as of this post and it works well. Newegg is the best. Rock on.

It works,but

Leadtek GeForce 8500 GT 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card PX8500GT 256MB
Leadtek GeForce 8500 GT 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card PX8500GT 256MB

Pros: It seems to work ok. no problems with installation.

Cons: #1 Advertised as SLI Supported but it isn't. There is no where to attch SLI bridge. #2 specs say requires 6 pin power plug from ps. but it doesn't have power plug on the card it just gets power from pci bus. #3 never got the game that was advertised.

Overall Review: I wish I bought the evga 8600gt insted. same price. my bad
