Most Favorable Review

Best card ever owned

EVGA 012-P3-1571-AR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA 012-P3-1571-AR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: this card is a huge step up from a Nvidia 240 GT that I cant even call it night and day more like surface of the sun to dark side of Neptune. on 3d Mark Vantage I went from 3-5 FPS to right around 60

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: with the precision tuner, over clocking and fan control are awesome and allow you to over clock far beyond the super Clocked version.

Great CPU

Intel Core2 Duo E7500 - Core 2 Duo Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80571E7500
Intel Core2 Duo E7500 - Core 2 Duo Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80571E7500

Pros: Very cheap, and if you over clock it it will be much faster than any similar priced CPU.

Cons: Old lga 775 socket

Overall Review: I had one of these processors for many years and ran it all day every day at 3.6 GHz and a FSB of 1333 and my windows 7 experience index was 7.0

best processor ever

Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition - Core i7 Extreme Edition Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.3GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80619i73960X

Pros: Very fast for all my games, video/picture editting and music convertion. i can do all the things mentioned plus doumload files off the internet and watch a Blu-Ray all at the same time with no sign of stress on the computer.

Cons: none

Overall Review: My old processor was an intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 (which I Paid $1000 for back in 2006) stock it runs a 2.93GHz. I was runing it overclocked to 4.33GHz and this processor at stock speeds on all the tests i run is on average 5 times faster

very cool

Pros: I installed it on a Intel Core 2 Duo E7500s @ 2.93Ghz and i was able to over clock it to 4.4 Ghz and it never gets above 50c using prime95 and realtemp. also my Windows Experience Index is 6.9 cpu 6.9 on 1066 ddr2 RAM.

Cons: somewhat hard to fallow instructions

Overall Review: The E7500s is a low TDP version of the E7500, the regular version is 95w and the "s" version is 65w and allows more voltage tweeking

great case
