Excelent video card !

Pros: Quiet, cool, powerfull. With 1.0v GPU voltage OC'ed stable to 800MHz GPU and 2000MHz RAM.

Cons: EVGA Precision doesn't let you modify GPU voltage so you need to use something else, MSI Afterburner is quite good for that.

Overall Review: I had couple hight end video cards during list year, including Radeons 5870s, 5890s, Nvidia GTX 480s. Sold each of them after like two, three months playing with. I can honestly say GTX 590 is the first video card i really want to keep till i replace my PC with new one in two years. What i mean is, it is not just powerfull high-end video card... it is very well designed and made product !

Excelent NIC

OKGEAR OK107 2.5" SATA USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure  with USB 5V Power Connection Adapter

Pros: Guys, read description of product before you buy it. Its is not ment to be used as USB or eSATA adapter. This thing fits into very specific 'USB eSATA combo' port some laptops have. It uses eSATA to transfer data and USB to get power.

Cons: ... or at least don't say your Tech Knowledge is high... after reading your reviews, its none in my opinion.

Very good !

Pros: Easy to use. Looks cool. Lightweight.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: Does what is supposed to do. Much better than any USB 2.0 adapter. Of course you have to have powered eSATA port in your laptop to use it.

Definitely worth the money

ASUS Radeon HD 5970 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Dual GPU Onboard CrossFire Video Card w/ Eyefinity EAH5970/2DIS/2GD5

Pros: The card itself is impressive. Huge, heavy, very well made. I'm sure you can find plenty of benchmarks on the internet, the card is very good, bottom line.

Cons: Cr*ppy software that comes with the card. It does what its supposed to do but looks like cr*p and its hard to use. Its almost impossible to change your frequencies smoothly and you cant change memory voltage at all. You better stick with original ATI software and OverVolt.

Overall Review: This card can be overclocked easily, but mainly for 'show off / benchmark' purposes. To run it overclocked all the time makes little sense unless you have insane water cooling. The problem is that once the GPU temperature hits certain level the GPU clock is lowered significantly until temp lowers. You can easily see it in Furmark stability test mode.
