AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ - Athlon 64 X2 Windsor Dual-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM2 125W Processor - ADX6400CZBOX
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ - Athlon 64 X2 Windsor Dual-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM2 125W Processor - ADX6400CZBOX

Pros: Great stock heatsink with copper base/pipes. about 36C idle, 49C load at room temp which is just fine.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Wanted to get as much power from ASUS M2N-E AM2 motherboard as possible. This was a great choice price/performance.

Most Critical Review

Wavy output

AMC Model SVHS-X1025DX 25 ft. Mini Din 4 Male to Male S-Video Cable
AMC Model SVHS-X1025DX 25 ft. Mini Din 4 Male to Male S-Video Cable

Pros: It's long and reaches across my room.

Cons: Waves travel from up to down the TV screen.

Works under Kubuntu64 and Vista32

EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Long external antenna cord, inexpensive ($20), compatibility (has 64-bit drivers), small width, PCI.

Cons: Didn't fit perfectly in my case. It may be my fault though. I haven't been able to get it to fit in my PCI slot while having the back-end secured down snugly (it keeps popping up the front of the card when I tighten the back-end).

Overall Review: Had a Linksys adapter that wasn't 64-bit compatible. It's good to have wireless now under my 64-bit operating system.

Great for music and games

Logitech S-220 17 Watts 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System
Logitech S-220 17 Watts 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System

Pros: I play TF2, linux games, music, etc. and sound is very clear. The subwoofer fits nicely under my desk.

Cons: The packaging was too compact in that wires were kinked inside the box.

Bad luck I guess

ViewSonic Graphic Series VG2230wm Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor Height & Tilt Adjustments 280 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers
ViewSonic Graphic Series VG2230wm Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor Height & Tilt Adjustments 280 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers

Pros: Widescreen, good response time for an LCD. Rotates on axis.

Cons: 3 lime green stuck pixels. Returned to Viewsonic directly and the replacement they sent back has 1 red stuck pixel near center. Paid expensive shipping charge to ship across the country to them.

Overall Review: I've tried getting rid of the stuck pixels using software and rubbing gently, but no luck. None of the pixels would become unstuck after months of trying on and off. This is my very first desktop LCD monitor. I've had a CRT up until this.

Stable
