Pros: stock cooler wasnt as bad as i thought, it looked very nice with copper pipes and everything (but still nothing beats after market cooler). with stock cooler, 30c idle, and 40-50c under load (caps at 50C while running prime 95). easy to overclock through the multiplier.

Cons: none

Overall Review: comes with a nice sticker.

KINAMAX ADP-IDE23 Laptop 2.5" to Desktop 3.5" IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter

Pros: low cost ease of use. simple packaging

Cons: the plastic case that binds the connector isn't hard, its a bit soft and bendy but fragile to the point where unplugging it many times will break it. just be careful when you unplug it and check for bent pins. also make sure that the black and red molex pins(wires) match each other when connecting to psu.

Pros: nice price, from the time that i bought it, the card was 159 dlrs nice design and the shroud on the card was not flimsly like some came with a sticker and dvi-vga

Cons: None, except i had a little bit of trouble of installing the catalyst Performance was a bit weak than i had expected, BUT since i was upgrading from an intergrated card, this was one of my best buys on newegg. about 40-100 fps on guildwars 40-60 in combat arms 20-35 in crysis (all settings high, x2 AA, 1248x1024

Overall Review: Great card, i recommend buying.
