SIIG IC-710012 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Surround Sound Card For Internet, DVD, MP3 and Gaming

Pros: Price, quality, sound quality, warranty, features, works in Linux, very well packaged for price paid.

Cons: No, not at this price

Overall Review: I tried this card on both Windows 98 and Linux and it works great on both. Very easy to install and setup. It's truly like night and day over onboard sound! I am very happy I bought this card, it is well worth it.

Good budget case

Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks great Lightweight Fairly easy to work around in Comes with 2 fans Comes with lots of mounting screws/standoffs Price

Cons: Agree with the guy below that the front LED is dangerously bright. I seriously wouldn't look into it for more than a second! And of course, not much room for cable management, but I knew that going in.

Overall Review: For the price this is a fun little case. I whipped up a new build with it last night and the whole thing went very smooth. Standoffs went in easy, screws went in easy, and everything just fit without much fight.

Great!

SilverStone Argon Series AR01 CPU Cooler with 120mm Fan for socket LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011, AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2

Pros: So glad I bought this cooler. It does an exceptional job at cooling a non overclocked FX-8320. Fan is inaudible. Prior to this I had only used stock clip on coolers so I thought install would be tricky, but it was a breeze and this sucker is on there secure! Overall I'm just really happy I chose this one.

Cons: None for me.

Overall Review: It is kinda big but just check your case dimensions to make sure it fits.

Great value

SeaSonic S12II Series S12II 620 Bronze (SS-620GB) 620 W Intel ATX 12 V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
SeaSonic S12II Series S12II 620 Bronze (SS-620GB) 620 W Intel ATX 12 V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Really just a great power supply for the price. Has more than enough cables {love the 9 sata connections}. It is heavy and well built and you can't beat a 5 year warranty.

Cons: At this price point absolutely nothing.

Overall Review: It does have a lot of cables...so if that's an issue, go modular.

Fine for what it is!

Pros: This is a great card for a simple machine that won't be gaming or doing anything very graphic intensive. Obviously, you would choose a card that has a dedicated fan for that purpose...My card never gets hot, only slightly warm.

Cons: Nothing...if you understand the cards limits!

Love G Skill!

Pros: Had this stick for a while now and never had a problem. I oc'd it to 900 on stock voltage and latency. Probably could go more if I upped voltage. I will use nothing but G Skill memory if possible.

Cons: none
