I'm a budget nerd...

PowerColor Radeon HD 6790 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card AX6790 1GBD5-DH

Pros: Good bang for the buck for a budget nerd. Better than the equivalent nvidia offering.

Cons: None really. Cheap brand is a con, but seems to be well made.

Overall Review: Overall this card offers pretty good performance (Skyrim on high, 1080p no problems) for a budget card. It scores better than what nvidia offers (I'm not a fanboy, I have several nvidia cards in my computers, too) at this price range. When my old GTX blew out I needed something cheap to replace it. I didn't need more performance, just the same or better and this card delivers. From one nerd to another... I recommend it.

DoA, don't buy this...

MSI 945 Neo5-F LGA 775 Intel 945GC ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: none....?

Cons: This board arrived DoA. I tried two spare pentium processors that should work in it, in addition to the C2D i ordered. Don't buy this thing if you plan on getting your new computr up and running the day your stuff arrives! Other people reported DoA as well. I figured they were exceptions but the DoA rate on these must be very high... silly me.

Overall Review: Maybe its a good board if it works. But I don't know. I hope newegg gets me a new one ASAP. =( My new gaming rig is useless without the mobo!

Great computer, great deal

Pros: Specs vs price is great for this machine. Even if I built it myself with parts from newegg it'd cost the same or more, and then it wouldn't have the single-manufacturer warranty not to mention my time! This thing is fast, runs BF3 1920x1080 on ultra @ 60fps. Awesome upgrade for my 6-year old Core 2 Duo. Amazingly enough it even comes with a Windows 8 restore disc, which many manufacturers neglect to include.

Cons: Barebones packaging, no name brand.

Overall Review: Thanks!

Below reviews are somewhat inaccurate

Pros: This game has good graphics, an huge world, tons of vehicles. There's an absurd amount of addons for this game which make it a blast to play. Find a good online server, throw out the single-player and this game beats OFP no contest. There is much besides the graphics that have changed. Example: Helicopters now simulate several real-life issues, such as: * by pulling the nose up at significant speeds causes the helicopter to gain altitude * the opposite is true, when you push the nose down to gain speed, you lose altitude * the rudder loses authority when speed increases due to the forward velocity "pushing you straight" * by pulling power in from the ground, the aircraft will want to turn the opposite way to the blades turning, this is an effect of torque. You can't expect much to change with gameplay, its a simulation. Not THAT much changed in conventional combat, hence not much changed in simulation of that combat. There are changes, just not at-first ob

Cons: Storyline, high system requirements. This game *can* run on older hardware with very low settings, however for smooth and optimal enjoyment you should have at least a 8000-series geforce or equivalent. Mouse controls are weird at first, but if you set float zone to 0 then its like a 'normal' FPS
