Unbreakable, Very Durable
Pros: Its the first Xbox Controller I liked. I allways hated the original Xbox Controller for the original Xbox. Its the only controller that converts the buttons presses for PC automatically for the newer games. I had this controller for 3 years and it works like if I had it yesterday and its been through a lot but its working perfectly.
Cons: My only con is the D-pad. At least its not used for many different options. It gets dirty easily if you have the white controller. The triggers dont work for older games so I have to go back to my Dualshock2 or my Logitech pad.
Overall Review: I been using this controller for my PC games for very long time.
Not good for Gaming but good for everything else
Pros: Perfect for long Desktop use, Windows 7 Aero and Flash 10. I can play all my older games flawlessly with this card but those are games from 2005 and back. It can run Fallout 3 with no problems but keep it at 1280 x 800 as the resolution. It can handle PhysX, faster then my old 8800GT card which I use to own but that is it. Good for its price but I think a 9800GT or 8800GT can perform better with games with a lot of shaders.
Cons: It starts a loud hissing noise with its fan after a while that can go over my AC unit when playing games that deal with a lot of particles or bloom effects. This card is not good for extensive gaming at all. .
Overall Review: Its about the same as a 9600GT in performance. Not good for long term gaming if you can stand the fan.
