Awsome!

EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 012-P3-1470-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 012-P3-1470-AR

Pros: Dx11, 1.2Gb of ram and 440 cores. Runs Unigine like a dream tesselation is very cool but you definitaly need a 700plus power supply with at least 40amps on the 12volt rail either combined or total.

Cons: Fan does get very loud at higher speeds, although it replaced two 8800gt's which i could literealy cook eggs with. Also with a $360 price this is no cheap card.

Overall Review: System specs: M2n-Sli Delux AMD Athlon X2 6000+ 4GB ddr2 800 Corsair Samsung 1TB drive Rosewill 750w power supply 4 12v rails with 20A each 1 EVGA Geforce gtx 470

Decent little package

Pros: Build quality is very good and easy to use bios. The small form factor fits nicely inside my coolermaster 110 itx case with plenty of room to spare. My wifi works flawlessly and also hooked up a set of bluetooth headphones for silent gaming sessions when the roomates are home. It has everything you could need for a micro build or htcp system. Came with latest bios so did not have to update to install 7th gen intel.

Cons: Installation was relatively easy only thing that slowed me down was the wifi card that many others had mentioned before, ended up taking the card out and installing the antenna connectors first then reinstalled the card and connected the antenna to the back plate.

Overall Review: Other components include an intel g4600, ballistix sport 8gb kit, amd 560 4gb, 240gb ssd(win10), and logysis 480w. This power combo works wonderfully as a budget gamer and gets decent frames in most aaa titles and max frames on older/lower end games. I use vertical sync so anything over 60 fps is a moot point for me.

Very Nice

Pros: Strong connection and sleek design. Connected to a netflix enabled tv for streaming and works wonderfully.

Cons: My only complaint is the set up took almost 1/2 hour due to hidden choices when running the unit in client mode. Such as where u input the passkey and in my case forgot it and had to try a few diffirent options rebooting each time and also needing to enable the dhcp option as well, not covered in the "quick install manuel."

Overall Review: Over all i'm impressed however the firmware could have been designed a little more user friendly, however any techminded person can work their way through it.

Awesome

Pros: It has revolutionized my case experiance. I usually by the cheapest things i can find and got this at $35 with free shipping heck yes. Wonderful layout came with everything needed and overall design keeps a 470 and 430 cool as well as 8gb of ram and a phenom II quad nice and cool.

Cons: The mesh does need to be cleaned once in a while but would rather have it on the outside than on the inside.

Overall Review: If you can get a deal on this case pick it up and u won't be disapointed. I did transplant a few fans from previous case but only because i like the ones that show speed and temp outputs better, that and they are green instead of blue.

Woot physx card

Pros: Wonderful physx card. Have not game'd to much on it as i have 470 running the graphics but it holds its own againts the cards of yester year particularly the 8x00 and mid 9x00 gpu's. Fan is near silent and not noticable with the 470 in there.

Cons: Not the best for gaming. Replaced a 240 1gb and has significantly less memory bandwidth due to slower gddr however is countered with faster cores, so kinda balances itself out but not really.

Overall Review: If for example you currently have a 8600 or equivilent get this level of card especially if you are on a budget this will give acces to Dx11 and surpass those cards abilities by far. I would be so bold as to say it comes close to the 8800gt series in "general" performance. The most usefull feature for me would be running physx; so unless you are on a budget and need to upgrade or just have an old or original power supply, as it only needs 300w drawing about 50w itself, its a good buy.

Sufficiently supprised

Pros: Works well and stable connection speeds. No problems with comcast and is slaughtering downloads vs limited dsl in my area.

Cons: Wish comcast had competent installers. Literally took three techs a total of 6 hours to get me hooked up and still had to add my own ground after investigating highpower output on upstream channel. Adding the ground dropped the needed output by 10dBmV, from 55 to 44 +-1 due to tempurature changes and traffic.

Overall Review: Make sure your connected as directly to the source of the main line as you can plus make sure the line is grounded some how otherwise unstable conditions will occur and not due to the modems fault.
