Most Favorable Review
Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000

Pros: The curvey shape, and the fact that it's wired means I KNOW it won't miss keystrokes. Since I learned to type the B key with my right index finger (not left) "split" keyboards won't work for me. But I like the curved shape. Also, I'm an old timer, so I dislike how more modern keyboards have rearranged PgUp/Dn, Home, Del, and Insert. Also, this doesn't have the "F lock" key, which is good. A function key should be a function key. (grumble grumble)

Cons: If you hate wires, that's a con. But I've had too many bad experiences with wireless keyboards missing keystrokes, no matter how close I put the receiver.

Overall Review: I am "upgrading" from the much more expensive "Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard". It misses keystrokes no matter what I do, in addition to the F lock and huge delete key issues which I can't get used to.

I couldn't have bought a better card

EVGA GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N625-AR
EVGA GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N625-AR

Pros: It makes games smoke!! Every game I have (all very recent) runs at highest resolution, highest quality settings over 60FPS. (My LCD refresh rate is 60Hz, so NO card could do better.)

Cons: If you're a fan of games that flicker and lag... don't get this card.

Overall Review: I'm sure if I owned an inadequate CPU, I would get worse results. But this card isn't the bottleneck. Also, the SLI compliance means if games become more intense in the future, I can buy the same card again at that time (way cheaper I assume) and it will double performance without having to throw this one away. I could have paid more for higher-end card, but I get 60FPS at highest settings on the best games, so why would I?
