Most Favorable Review

Insane Cooling

Thermalright Ultra-120  Extreme CPU Heatsink
Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme CPU Heatsink

Pros: This is slightly smaller than the Vanessa cooler on my old system yet it does a phenomenally better job.

Cons: The fan clips are a bit finicky

Overall Review: I have a Q6600 G0 stepping OC'd to 3.005ghz (25% overclock) and the cooler holds the idle temps down to ~32C and the load temps to ~47C

Most Critical Review

Can't beat the price

GENERIC AMD Wallet/Money Clip
GENERIC AMD Wallet/Money Clip

Pros: *Free

Cons: *You get what you pay for

Overall Review: It's free, so you can't complain, but it won't wold very much at all, after buying a new processor I don't guess they think you'll have much to put in it! I have my own wallet I use but I suppose you can keep it as a peice of AMD memorabilia.

Doesn't work with 4gb+ RAM

Hauppauge Personal video recorder 274 PCI Interface
Hauppauge Personal video recorder 274 PCI Interface

Pros: When it works it works great

Cons: This card does NOT work with Vista 64-bit in combination with 4gb or more RAM. Hauppauge evidently doesn't care to fix the problem despite the 450 post thread about it in their forums so steer clear if you plan using 4gb or more RAM.

Overall Review: Hopefully Newegg will make a disclaimer for this on the 150 and 500 cards so no one else wastes their money on them if they have 4gb or more RAM.

Pretty Good

ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Running a Q6600 on 333x9 @ 1.25 volts stable and has some decent overclock options.

Cons: As some other mentioned, the bios feels redundant because the same options are in multiple locations.

Overall Review: I bought it Open Box but had to problems with it. I'm not using the Wifi antennae but it costs as much as the one without it so I recommend it.

Efficient and Quiet

Scythe Minebea NMB Silent IC Series 4710KL-04W-B19-VB2 Case Cooling Fan
Scythe Minebea NMB Silent IC Series 4710KL-04W-B19-VB2 Case Cooling Fan

Pros: I can't hear this can over my case fans (I have an Antec 900). It's mounted on my Thermalright 120 extreme and the two do well together.

Cons: It's actually 119mm, not 120.

Overall Review: Together with my Thermalright ultra 120 heat sync, it help the temps down to 47C under load on an overclocked Q6600.

Runs FFOW Beta Maxxed Out

EVGA 512-P3-N802-A1 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
EVGA 512-P3-N802-A1 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: It's cheaper than the GTX/Ultra yet offers comparable specs, also comes packaged with quake wars.

Cons: You'll probably want to install Riva Tuner like others suggested to manage the cooling

Overall Review: Running FFOW Beta Test on maxed settings with no stutters, 1440x900.
