Pros: Good card , went from 8600 gts to this card , of course , it blew it away. plays starcraft 2 on ultra , WoW , every game i throw at it. one of the reason i bought this card , is cuz my 8600 gts died , and i also needed an upgrade , because i'm thinking of getting the upcoming bf3, which i think this card will it easily.
Cons: i have a bad feeling that msi will not return the rebate. but who knows, gotta wait and see.
Overall Review: if i get my rebate back , this card would be worth 140$ . Which is a great deal.
This motherboard has a serious dual ram issue
Pros: Great typical motherboard. Never had a problem with any asus motherboard till this motherboard. See cons below.
Cons: This Motherboard has a serious dual channel ram issues. If you are using 1 stick, no issues at all. But once you go into double 2 sticks of ram then random blue screen errors, boot issues, random restarts etc etc. It detects the two sticks of ram and it boots into windows but it has random crashes or restarts, and in some cases it dosent boot into windows. Formated windows multiple times, tried diffrent ram..... But once you go into using 1 single ram stick all issues disappear. Looking through the other comments online, it seems like this is a common issue this motherboard have. I hope they come out with an update soon, because currently I'm using 1 16GB stick instead of 2 16GB. Considering of just upgrading to 1 32GB ram stick and calling it a day.
Overall Review: Good Motherboard..... not considering the dual ram issues. Wasted too much time to figure it out.
Pros: This laptop is great, It got sold-out fast on cybermonday, I'm glad i got my hand on it. Triple core, It does everything you throw at it. it is not designed for gaming , But i was surprised that it installed sc2 , playable on low graphics. I like its exterior design. got it for $450, email, internet, word, etc.... works great. It battery is very good, better than many other laptops out there.
Cons: No problem so far, only speakers are weak. but i expected that.
Overall Review: even at its retail price now it is still a good deal to get. I was going to get a Toshiba for $600 quad core , But I'm so glad i got this instead. Thank you NewEgg Cybermonday :)
Won't give you any trouble
Pros: I bought this case about 3 years ago , the power supply is still kicking , the case looks like new. it has many fans around it, which helps the cooling a little. you got all the space in the world to put anything you want in it. Very good Metal , i even tried sitting on it and i weight about 130-140 pounds.
Cons: some of the fans died after 2yrs , but it wasn't a big deal , you can easily open the fan up and put some oil and they work like new. The big bottom fan is a pain to open up thou , but i did it :)
Overall Review: i bought this case with my build 3yrs ago , and everything still works :) , I hear that supplies that come with cases are horrible , but not this one :). you won't regret it....
Pros: This screen is awesome , Asus never disappoints me. I bought this screen couple months ago, one of the reasons i bought it , is because my motherboard is also asus and its been about 3 yrs now and still works. so that's why i got this screen , i knew Asus quality is very good. and i was right, this screen is very sharp , easy menu, and a great price.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Don't get screens made my Princeton, mine lasted about a year and a half. But this one IS 10 times better.
Pros: My first comp build and this motherboard did it , didnt have much troubles with it at all. its manual is very easy to understand. Plus its an asus good kind. I'm running duo core 2 e6600 on it , geforce 8600gts, and 2gb ram 800mhz, if u want a good board, buy this.
Cons: nothing realy :)
Overall Review: Ummm, my computer is too loud -.- , but o well, as long as its a good comp. hope it stays good.
