VERY CLEAN

ASUS M3A78 Pro AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M3A78 Pro AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: ExpressGate is a Great lil program! well thought out and no glithes or hickups! 5 Eggs for all included software! the AMD OC utility lets u really push your CPU/RAM to its full pot. im not too hip on using software to OC but this is one PC i feel safe to let her rip! ALL included software work PERFECT with WINDOWS SEVEN (7)

Cons: the one con i have is when you OC the CPU from Bios your limited @ 1.3v The slots over that (higher volts) are reserved for the OC software provided with the MotherBoard in which i could reach 3.4Ghz @ 1.479v with a 2.4Ghz 8750 Toliman triple-core. This one con does suck really bad, but the board still gets 5 eggs hands down!

Overall Review: Very well laid out. im running a Radeon HD 4870 1gig DDR5 GFX card and nothing gets blocked all 4 ram slots are fill with G.skill ram total 8 gigs @ 800Mhz... 4 gigs will run in duel chan mode @ 1066Mhz with volts bumped to 1.95v or 2.0v! 600w Cooler Master is my PSU for the system. The Case wire adaptor is worth $100 alone If u buy this u will see what i mean! All Solid Capacitors are cutting edge! I used the onboard GFX for two weeks and id have to say if i wasnt forced to get high end GPU for games like GRID, Red Alert 3, ect.. the onboard sharing 8 gigs of ram with the system put out some awesome gaming n BF2142, WoW, Oblivion, all run on high setting on the onboard soo if you not hardcore u wont need a GFX card and can still play some online games! one last thing....... THIS BOARD WORKS PERFECT WITH WINDOWS 7. thx

Viewsonic DiamaniDuo NX2232w 22" 5ms LCD W/fully integrated HDTV/NTSC/QAM TV Tuner 300 nits (typ) 2400:1 DCR

Pros: Im not going to buy! I really wanted this TV :(

Cons: Im not going to buy this I really wanted this TV :(

Overall Review: I will not be buying this TV because of the review made by another NewEgger! Cons: TV NX2232w build date 10-10-07 loses all HD signals after 45-60 minutes of operation. The screen goes black and a letter box appears showing NO SIGNAL. When unplugged then re-powered the TV recovers an HD signal for 4-5 minutes then displays the NO SIGNAL message again. Another HD TV attached to the same cable operates normally. Internal cabinet heat seems to be an issue. Numerous attempts to reach Viewsonic by phone started with the message ""all customer service representatives are busy...hold times are over 30 minutes. I held for over an hour with no response. E-mails to Viewsonic requesting possible causes and corrective action have gotten no response. Viewsonic customer service is either seriously understaffed or overwhelmed with product problems.

Pros: This card is a POWER HOUSE! ive yet to have any issue with heat/crashes/driver... its just flawless! its been around 6 months now and its just like i bought it yesterday! I did a heavy burn in when i first got the card with some GPU software and its been running stable OC since!

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: wish i would have bought two of these when i had the chance cuz now they all gone! maybe Newegg will restock this model! im running windows 7 RC and it runs PERFECT on eather Microsoft drivers for win7 or ATI drivers for vista/win7 i couldnt see a diff i tried them both & both preformed flawless! If i need to upgrade in the next year or two i will buy SAPPHIRE again and it will come from NEWEGG! THX
