SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4650 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card 100254HDMI
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4650 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card 100254HDMI

Pros: I've Had this Card for some time now (1 month) and It works Great! It handles Halo Games with No problem, handles the Sims 3 Great, and Does a fabulous job with Video editing. This Video card is extremely cheap, and works great. If you do 720p HD video editing, Play Medium End games, and want something that's cheap, This video card is right for you!

Cons: Had Some issues with the Catalyst Control Center, but You have to run it as Administrative for it to keep the settings.

Overall Review: I'm glad I purchased this card

10/30/2010

Came with my 21.5 inch iMac

Intel Core i3-550 - Core i3 Clarkdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1156 73W Intel HD Graphics Desktop Processor - BX80616I3550
Intel Core i3-550 - Core i3 Clarkdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1156 73W Intel HD Graphics Desktop Processor - BX80616I3550

Pros: This is the stock processor that came with my iMac and I couldn't be happier. It runs great, so far cool, and handles everything I throw at it! Infact, it doesn't even Reach 100% Usage when I'm rendering some pretty intense stuff in 3D. Activity Monitor in Snow Leopard identfies it as a Quad Core because of the Hyper Threading, and it really does stand up to that. If you're afraid to buy because it's only an i3, don't be. This is definitally fast enough to handle somewhat intense to intense work!

Cons: There aren't any I can think of.

Overall Review: Running Bootcamp, windows gives it a 7.2 It also handles things like Vitural Machines well, though Windows XP in VMWare identifies it as an i5 :/

Windows 7 is Epic

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders

Pros: This Operating System is Extremely Neat looking, Fast, and dependable (Unlike Windows Vista)

Cons: None at all. Only 1 System Crash in a 1 year time period

Overall Review: Microsoft rises again with Windows 7

Very Good!

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80580Q8400
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80580Q8400

Pros: I purchased this Processor to upgrade my E5200 Dual-Core Processor and Have scene some Big differences! It's fast, works well when running multiple Applications, and kicks a*s!

Cons: When Rendering 1920x1080 Video, the Processor Reaches Extremely High temperatures. The Stock Heat sink and fan is also A joke. Had to use a separate one

Overall Review: This is good for someone who only Renders 1280x720 or lower Video. Overclocked to 2.88 GHz
