Pros: Cheap, reliable(once it starts working.)
Cons: Had to flash the BOIS to use any DIMM modual, Horrible manual. Wouldn't boot at first. After a couple of BIOS clears, and a power supply change I got it boot to a floppy. No Windows 64 support.
Overall Review: I bought this as a trial station (see if things work before I put them in my main rig) Once I got it working, it has been unstoppable. Am currently running 4 different versions of windows on the same drive. Does perform desently. Current setup: Biostar K8NHA Grand Sempron 64 2600+ 512 Patriot memory Radeon 7500
Pros: Nice Card. Games well enough for a Lan party box.
Cons: A little concerned about heat disbursement.
Overall Review: I used this in a MicoAtx tower and the temps were kinda high (50C idle 62C 3dMark Vantage). Added a pci fan in the bottom of the case and the temps dropped to 43C/51C. Gigabyte P55M-UD2 i5-750 4gig Patriot G Series "Sector 5" EVGA GTS250 Rosewill Green 430Watt
Pros: Small, but large enough to hold a nice simple Lan Party computer.
Cons: Did not come with enough screw in motherboard mounts. Did come with some plastic retainers. I am planning on using this as a Lan box, so I would have preferred all screw style mounts.
Overall Review: A couple of the edges were a little rough. I cut my thumb on the framing for the optical drives. Gigabyte P55M-UD2 I5-750 4gig Patriot G series "Sector 5" EVGA GTS250 Rosewill Green series 430watt
