BEST DEAL on a video card PERIOD!

PNY GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card RVCGGTX470XXB
PNY GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card RVCGGTX470XXB

Pros: I purchased this 470 to now have SLI going in my rig. Great card, no complaints here.

Cons: It's a good thing to be wary of recertified cards but this one had not problems and appears untouched. Remember, if you're doing an SLI configuration your temps will rise substantially when you add another 470GTX. The cards usually are very close together and now heat becomes worrisome.

Overall Review: Love the deal, I don't think you can beat the speed or the price.

Great Memory REBATE SCAM

HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX
HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX

Pros: Great Memory. Works perfectly with my i7-950 and Asus x58 Sabertooth motherboard.

Cons: KINGSTON WILL NOT HONOR REBATE

Overall Review: I hate liars, cheats and thieves. This is the only reason I purchased this particular RAM was for the rebate.

Pure Extreme!

Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case

Pros: This case is HUGE! Solid from top to bottom, plenty of space and everything that one needs for a screaming system build. After moving a x58 motherboard to this monster from a mid-ATX case I am more than thrilled. Easy set up, install and great for cable management and different cooling options.

Cons: Lift with the legs not the back. ;-)

Good RAM

HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX
HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX

Pros: Great RAM, no problems whatsoever. Be sure to go into BIOs and enable XMP profile and all your settings are done!

Cons: Don't even bother with the rebate. Kingston's not very good at honoring them.

GREAT card!!!!

EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 012-P3-1470-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 012-P3-1470-AR

Pros: Super fast. Remember, you don't have to have the latest in video cards and get the same performance. EVGA has software that will OC their cards. This is the second 470 I have purchased.

Cons: The card runs pretty hot, but after reading about it everything is still well within specs.

Overall Review: Just remember that not ALL games are written to utilize SLI. I think that before the SLI set up I was a little decieved by some of the marketing. Just ONE of these cards is just fine for almost anything unless your screen resolution is ridiculously huge!!!

NewEgg great, Game soso

Call of Duty: Black Ops Xbox 360 Game
Call of Duty: Black Ops Xbox 360 Game

Pros: It's an FPS

Cons: It's a remake of the same ol' stuff you have seen in all the other Call of Duty games. I am surprised they are not forced to come up with something new.

Overall Review: Very sad that they cannot move past this game engine and get something a bit more exciting like Bad Company 2.
