Pros: Does everything listed on features and low price.

Cons: (1)Using Verbatim disks DVD/CD and this drive is a little noisy. (2)Firmware doesn't upgrade, it will see the drive but not upgrade it...could not be needing it, but theres no way to verify that.

Overall Review: Installed this drive on a Vista 32 bit system with no problems at all.

Excellent 6 Gb/s Round Cable

OKGEAR OK18A3RUB11 1.5 ft. Straight To Straight W/ Metal Latch SATA 3.0 Cable
OKGEAR OK18A3RUB11 1.5 ft. Straight To Straight W/ Metal Latch SATA 3.0 Cable

Pros: TRUE 6 Gb/s Cable. One end straight the other end 90°. Double shielded.

Cons: A bit stiff.. If you're buying these cables you should already know that!

Overall Review: I'm using these cables on two SanDisk 480 GB SSD Extreme drives. Transfer speeds are at the max..!

GA-990FXA-UD7 rev1.1

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Very fast mother board. All options are available. If you can dream it, this motherboard can do it.

Cons: Gigabyte's BIOS are a little iffy when running a AMD FX-8350 Vishera. Memory clock speeds over 1333 can cause errors sometimes. The current BIOS version is F10. * One star off for iffy giga-BIOS.

Overall Review: GA-990FXA-UD7 rev1.1 Newegg packed the motherboard box very well. It came good to go. No, it will not make coffee. :(

This is not a Full Version.

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 32-bit (Full Version)
Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 32-bit (Full Version)

Pros: It's new..kinda

Cons: Newer isn't always better.. This isn't the full version because the media center isn't activated until a separate unlock code is used. CableCard users are being left out in the cold. Windows 8 is really better suited for touch tablet users. Desktop environment user = "More clicking in Windows 8"

Overall Review: Windows 7 with the Aero Glass Theme turned off is just as fast as Windows 8. Yes, Windows 7 isn't broken. Microsoft is already working on Windows 9. I highly recommend waiting for Windows 9 if you're a desktop user.

Excellent Card.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card GV-R795WF3-3GD
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card GV-R795WF3-3GD

Pros: Real power that delivers a AMD punch.

Cons: Full case is needed. The hot air isn't being channeled outside the box.

Overall Review: So far everything I've thrown at this card hasn't been a problem. The card is a class act. It has a good balance between RAW power and keeping the fans silent. Some of my system info: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 rev1.1 / BIOS F10 Kingston HyperX Blu 16GB 1333MHz DDR3 AMD FX-8350 Windows 7 64bit Cooler Master RC-1200-KKN1 Full Tower
