Wow...DVI on Mobo!?

ABS Desktop PC Awesome V1D 30 Athlon 3200+ 512MB DDR 160GB HDD ATI Radeon Integrated Graphics Windows XP Professional

Pros: Pretty much tickled in every way...amazing feature set for the price,and the onboard DVI AND component video out make it unbeatable for a mid-range media center at a budget price. Huge hard drive, corsair ram and dual burner? Are you kidding me?

Cons: None.

Overall Review: The serial sticker has a company's name on it, but I guess they didn't need it... Their loss!

Most Critical Review

Too Big

XFX PVT42EUDE3 GeForce 6800XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card
XFX PVT42EUDE3 GeForce 6800XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Can't say because I can't use it!Gonna have to RMA...

Cons: The only reason for 3 stars is the fact that the card won't fit on my mobo; I think it would be helpful in situations like this to give the physical dimensions of the card on the spec sheet. I can't believe more people haven't run into this, but this card is a full 2 and a half inches longer than the one it replaces; the northbridge on my Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 is in the way...will not seat with either the liquid cooling block that was there or the original cooling fins. And after looking at mobos for 2 hours last night, I only found a couple that wouldn't have the same issue; DFI Infinity is one...

Overall Review: Just want to give a heads up; You need to examine the photos and your mobo very carefully, especially if you wanna go SLI.

Battery strong as DEATH ITSELF, lol....

Pros: I just wanted to talk about my amazing battery life! I have owned this for over 2.5 years, and the battery, which was already ridiculously strong on a size vs. size ratio, has maintained a charge so consistent that I still get over TWO FULL HOURS of full load use!!!! This is INSANE............ Seriously.... I must confess that I sometimes don't use the Beast for several weeks at a time between periods of heavy use, and I have ALWAYS removed the battery when putting up for a while, as per mfr. rec.. Again, WOW.... Among all the joys I have had owning and using this preposterous "laptop", lol, I cannot get over a battery THAT SMALL doing a job this BIG for THIS LONG....

Cons: Phhbbbbbbbbttttttttt........ Naaaah

Overall Review: It's a shame that none will ever read this VERY late review of a product that Newegg hasn't stocked in over 2 years:) And yet, I was compelled to leave it.... What an AMAZING piece of work from an otherwise generally mediocre pc maker.... If you find one of these babies on Eblah, don't hesitate. I'm not saying my experience is typical, but wow....

Works GREAT on Asus M2N32 Deluxe...

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Processor - HDZ940XCGIBOX
AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Processor - HDZ940XCGIBOX

Pros: I wanted to let readers know that this works perfectly in my beloved old M2N32 SLI Deluxe mobo. There are more than a few posts about this in the last year, so I know there are some of us who just can't bear to part with this dinosaur:) yet. I can say that with the latest bios, 2209, the chip works flawlessly! The system recognizes and labels the chip properly, and I have it OC'd to 3.8 on liquid without a hiccup:) So, if you are one of us still squeezing life from a classic, jump on this, you will LOVE it! I hope this helps you out:)

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: I'm not sure if I got this here or on the auction site which shall be nameless here, but I have posted over 100 other reviews here over the years if you doubt my veracity:) System specs: Asus M2N32 SLI Deluxe, bios rev. 2209 8gb Geil DDR2800 2x XFX 9800GX2 in SLI Rosewill 1kw ps Vista Ultimate 64

Pros: I have this running in an Asus Crosshair III w/ liquid, and words aren't adequate to describe how amazing this chip is. Stable OC to 4.2, what else could you POSSIBLY want?!? Eats ANYTHING I throw at it....

Cons: None WHATSOEVER.

Overall Review: All you Intel fans, I enjoy watching you shell out ridiculous sums for performance you could have on the cheap:) Come back to the light! :D

Great card for the $....

ASUS Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card EAH4890/HTDI/1GD5
ASUS Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card EAH4890/HTDI/1GD5

Pros: Nice card, I'm running it in an Asus Crosshair III mobo, and no probs running Crysis at high settings... Haven't tried OC yet... Runs quietly at idle, and not much louder under full load... Nice:)

Cons: If you want to put this in the Crosshair III like me, be warned that the top cooling fins on the card interfere a little with the X-Fi card that comes with the mobo. A little loosening of the thumbscrew helped it sit at a slight angle, so no biggie, but still...

Overall Review: Will be nicer when I add another in Crossfire:)
