Pros: Sound comes out of them and they are USB powered. I was expecting them to be a lot worse but I was quite surprised. I prefer to listen to music on these instead of my laptop speakers. LED light is blue and it matches the rest of my setup! :D

Cons: Goes crazy when I am receiving a cell phone call but is not effected by my cordless. This happens with a lot of inexpensive speakers so I'm not upset.

Overall Review: These speakers are great for those that do not have a lot of space on their desk. I'm not a soundoholic I just wanted sound to come out of my computer for when I'm playing games.

EVGA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 512-P3-N800-AR
EVGA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 512-P3-N800-AR

Pros: At the time it was the cheapest EVGA version of the 8800 graphics card. Got 100+ fps on AOC on low settings. Played Mideval 2 for 1 hr before it crapped out. Lifetime warrenty.

Cons: Had to RMA this baby. Probably just got a bad one and thats why I took an egg off. The dual cooling is kind of a sham... If you look the single slot inventroy price is more than this card even though the cooling is supposed to be better on this one... Well I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this baby costs less because its heat sink is made of cheaper metal. My card idled at 46 with the fan at 80% and two case fans blowing on it. Couldn't really test it with a load since I would get in a game and get BOD and the back of the card would be hot. EVGA never emailed me back even though I emailed them twice trying to figure out if there was something that I could do to fix the problem other than RMAing it.

Overall Review: Absolutely inperative that you ramp up the fan. Default setting will wind up frying your card. If you are on a budget then this card could be good for you but if you are not then I would pass this card up for the single slot or maybe even the SC single slot version. Newegg hooked me up with a RMA refund and I got the SC version for $175 cause it was on sale. Newegg Rocks!
