Amazing Performance!

XIGMATEK MC NRP-MC751 750 W ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V Ver. 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
XIGMATEK MC NRP-MC751 750 W ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V Ver. 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This power supply has everything you need to power your computer. I have a Q6600 at 3.6GHz 1.48v, a Radeon HD3870 X2, 4GB RAM, 4 fans and of course the other essentials. Even with all the fans turned on max, this power supply still has room for more. I am very pleased, and as a first time user of Xigmatek PSUs, I would suggest them to everyone. They have a great price/performance ratio, they are easy to install and are well worth your money.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Someone mentioned earlier that the cables were a bit stiff, and I do feel this way as well. But I don't count that as a con, as it ensures protection for them. My only complaint is that they have more support for newer 6-pin and 8-pin power connections, and not as much for the Y-cable formats. Still, there were plenty of cables for what was in my computer and most likely there are enough for you as well.

Worth the Money!

Pros: This card is great! I've been saving up all summer for it and it finally pays off! I'm easily bringing in 150+ fps in HL2 Episode 2 with 8xAA and 16xAF @1440 x 900. Other games like FEAR, Halo 2, GRAW 2 have also yielded impressive results. I have yet to test Crysis (don't have it installed yet), but from the results this card had at higher resolutions than mine (my max is 1440 x 900), this card will blow through it at very high. I might even be able to enable AA for once (wasn't able to with the ol' 7800). Excellent product, ATI really hit the ball outta the park with this one. And of course, Newegg was quick to ship it.

Cons: Not many. It's big and runs hot, but the ATI expert tool allows you to manually turn up the fan speed. Without it turned up, this thing can idle around 87C! But turning it up to 50% however brings it down to 53C. And the noise level at that rate isn't horrible since it's a constant sound. Also, wearing headphones helps drown out the noise.

Overall Review: Intel Q6600 @ 3.0 GHz, 4GB Corsair DDR3 1333 MHz, Intel DX38BT motherboard, Samsung 906CW 19".
