Very Happy

EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB DDR AGP 8X Video Card 256-A8-N341-LX
EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB DDR AGP 8X Video Card 256-A8-N341-LX

Pros: Excellent card for the money. Installed it in the kid's machine, on a P4 Asus board. Runs great, color is great. We would highly recomend this to anyone looking for lots of memory in an AGP system.

Cons: Having a fan may seem like a necessity but this thing run extremely cool in stock config.

Most Critical Review

Pure Junk!!

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ

Pros: Cheapest PC6400 around.

Cons: Incompatible with A-Data and difficult to get ASUS P5WD2 Premium to recognize correctly on boot. Requires multiple reboots to get to recognize at proper speed.

Overall Review: You get what you pay for

ASUS Z8NA-D6C Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server/Workstation Motherboard
ASUS Z8NA-D6C Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server/Workstation Motherboard

Pros: Price! Asus!

Cons: No PCI-X, no on-board sound. This board is classified as a server board yet it seems geared towards the gaming crowd. The only correlation to a server is that it can accept Xeon processors. There are many commercial applications where PCI-X cards are still in use such as SCSI u320 RAID. It seems as if ASUS is neglecting that portion of the market, forcing those loyal customers to go elsewhere if they want dual 1366. It is understandable that they would opt for one PCI-X instead of the usual two but they already have the architecture there and they limit it to standard PCI 66mhz.

Overall Review: Our machines are used for extremely large graphic design. We always add a 512mb or larger display adapter, while we always used on-board sound. While we understand that many servers only require minimal display capabilities instead of sound, it would be nice if ASUS left the standard on-board sound intact.

Well worth it

Pros: Crisp and clear. No bleed and no dead/stuck pixels. Comes with both DVI and VGA cables.

Cons: None

Overall Review: We are probably some of the last CRT holdouts. We do a lot of graphic work. This was definitely worth the wait. If you are in the market this unit will not disappoint.

Great Value

APEVIA X-Infinity ATXB6KLW-BK/420 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 420W Power Supply
APEVIA X-Infinity ATXB6KLW-BK/420 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 420W Power Supply

Pros: Bought this for the kid's machine. He loves the lights and the door! Lots of space, motherboard tray, plenty of fans, front ports, good PSU, well built. We would definitely recomend Aspire.

Cons: A little light on the steel but what isn't nowadays. Would prefer heavier - but not big enough problem to dislike. The clear door is enough to make you want to get the round cables and such. That does not include all the lighting options you could add - if the kids (as in our case) ever find out. hehe

Overall Review: Cases, cases and more cases! It is enough to make you dizzy. The kid chose a few that he liked the looks of. Reviews decided the rest. I must admit that if I was into lights, I would love this this for myself.

Compatible with Asus P5WD2 Premium

Pros: Works well with Asus! No issues. Great value!

Cons: None

Overall Review: Please note that we are not into oc'ing. Although considering what this is, it seems like you could.
