HIS Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H577FM1GD
HIS Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H577FM1GD

Pros: This is a very great card for the price, with one I was able to play most games out there at max settings with at least 2x AA(sometimes more, depends on the game of course). With two of them now, I can usually get 8xAA, only game that gives me any problems is Crysis, as I only get 40fps(30fps with one card), though it is very playable at that speed, just not that oh so desirable 60fps. Overclocks well for me, I couldn't push it quite as far as some people say they have gotten it, but I still got GPU clock 900MHz, Memory Clock 1300MHz. (Memory can actually go higher, but I like to just leave it at 1300).

Cons: Hm lets see.. only con that I can pull out of my wildest imagination is that the card is big? not a con though as long as you make sure your case is big enough.

Fantastic

Pros: -Very easy to install -Fan that comes with it is quiet -Keeps CPU chilly -Closed system -Made by a wonderful brand -very great for the price

Cons: -None

Overall Review: I have an AMD phenom II 965 x4, overclocked to 3.8 and this cooler keeps it at around 28c, the highest I have ever seen the temperature get is 35c, that was after a few hours under a load. I love this thing! I used the pre-applied thermal grease because I didn't feel like messing with taking it off and putting more on, and I am happy I went with it, was so much easier. I see a lot of people saying it was hard to install, but don't be afraid! it is actually very easy, just take all the parts out, study them a bit, and make sure you pay attention, it seems hard at first, but it really isn't all that terrible. Better instructions couldn't hurt though.

Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan

Pros: Moves a lot of air, is very quiet (provided you don't leave it on full power obviously), hasn't broken down on me or caught on fire which is always a good sign!

Cons: It is pretty thick, though that is mentioned in the title/specs, so it shouldn't be a problem, as long as people learn to read.

Cons: None.

Pros: Well there isn't all that much to say about it, it works, it reads/writes at a reasonable speed, have had no problems with it yet.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Bought two, very pleased.

Pros: Nice, bright, clear. Easy to change brightness settings if you don't like bright monitors. Nice glossy finish, and touch sensitive menu rather than buttons.

Cons: One of the two screens I bought had one stuck pixel, hard to see unless you actually look for it. Other than that? none that I know of.

Overall Review: When I bought my first of these screens I was very pleased with it, I was a tad disappointed with there being a stuck pixel though, but hey things happen, and it was all the way over to the right so it was very hard to see. Friends and family liked the monitor so I ended up giving my monitor to my father and bought myself a new one. Worked out great because the second monitor has no dead pixels, and my father can't even see the stuck pixel on his even after I pointed it out. :) Overall this monitor is just fantastic, I see no slow down/ghosting in games like some people claim with 5ms screens. (the human eye can't tell a difference unless it is 8ms+ anyways)
