HD4850 512 PCIE

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100245HDMI
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100245HDMI

Pros: THIS IS THE BEST PRICED lower end budget card period. blazing speed for dollar outlay, native HDMI port, HDCP, cross fire ready. 2 of these cross fired for 170.00 will crest the new 4890. Powers 2 lcds increased windows aero score in windows 7 RC.

Cons: didn't get 2, must power with power supply extension, who cares at this cost right. there are no cons. LOL

Overall Review: This is a great video card with an excellent performance rating from top sites like Toms hardware. This was an easy install once I disabled the IGP. I have a Gigabyte MA790g9-UD4H MOBO, and I down loaded the new Windows 7 RC Catalyst to run the IGP. When I installed this card I din't need to change any drivers. I didn't load any of the drivers from the original box because I have winows 7 RC, and I had already down loaded the Catalyst for the MOBO. I installed this without a glitch in less than 10 minutes. ATI catalyst recognized my dual monitors VK266H in HDMI, and X233H DVI ports, and the adapter is recognized in device manager bywindows 7RC with no issues so far.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card 100362-3L

Pros: Worked out of the box no blue or black screens. Runs quiet does what I want it to do. Great price with a 20.00 rebate, looks good and runs cool

Cons: Size this thing is huge but that's not a con considering how cool it runs is it!

Overall Review: I was reluctant to buy thias with all of the negative reviews about not working, and hanging up during installation. I feel that those issues are far fetched if you have a 990 chipset, and knowledge of how to install equipment. I read a review and I knew the person did not uninstall th old video drivers, or clear the BIOS. If you have an old video card and you are upgrading you must unistall the drivers, and if that does not work try resetting the bios. I had to reset the BIOS for a friend when he said that he uninstalled the drivers 1st before installing the card.

Silenx EFX-12

SilenX EFX-12-15 Effizio Quiet Case Fan
SilenX EFX-12-15 Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Q U I E T Moves plenty of air fast shipping

Cons: None

Overall Review: I ordered this to go into the top of a modded case and it does what it says. It moves plenty of air and is quiet. I also have a Cougar 12 inch fan, and I think that the cougar edges it out. Still this is a good fan at a great price. I ordered it Wednesday, and it showed up Friday thanks Newegg

Vortex Hydro

COUGAR Vortex PWM 120mm (CF-V12HP) Cooling Fan with Hydro-Dynamic Bearing and Pulse Width Modulation (Orange Version)
COUGAR Vortex PWM 120mm (CF-V12HP) Cooling Fan with Hydro-Dynamic Bearing and Pulse Width Modulation (Orange Version)

Pros: This thing moves a lot of air. It is quiet, and it attaches to my Xigmatek 1283 cooling my CPU.

Cons: I didn't get two!

Overall Review: I wasn't sure if this would fit my CPU cooler or not, bit it fits a Xigmatek 1283 flawlessly, and cools like a champ. This thing is quiet compared to the CFS that it puts out. This can be used as a CPU cooler, or a case fan, and I could have got bought one more had I know it would flow so much air.

Antec Big Boy

Antec BIGBOY200 200 mm Case cooler

Pros: Quiet, moves a lot of air cools my case with this fan for sure. Also has a PWM switch if you don't have a fan controller. fast shipping

Cons: Cost 27.99 was 16.99 at a competitor

Overall Review: I placed this in an old Antec 1080p case that's in excellent condition. I modded the case with a plexiglass window, and this fan and it cools nicely. Its quiet and moves a lot of air through the case.

G Skill 1866 2nd time around

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-8GAB
G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-8GAB

Pros: Great quality, fast memory speed, works flawlessly out of the box. I had already installed 8 gigs as you see from a previous post, so now I have 16gigs. This memory can run flawlessly at 1600mhz, Excellent priced fast shipping

Cons: N O N E People saying don't buy, like the guy below me because he has no build skills, or just has an incompatible MOBO with out dated Bios perhaps

Overall Review: G Skill makes good quality memory, I had 1066 memory in the past running along side Kingston Hyper X T1's with no issue. I bought 8 gigs a few weeks ago, and at the price Newegg is selling them for I had to add to my build....16gigs now. Don't listen to the negative post below, because I can tell you these are quality memory sticks, and can run at 1600 or 1866 flawlessly. Don't dare buy 1600mhz memory with these running so darn cheap. Don't be afraid do get them now. 960T Zosma unlocked to 6 Cores over clocked to 3.85 Ga790A-UDH3 F5 Bios Gigabyte G Skill 1866 Ares (PC3 14900) Amd Sapphire 4850 X Fire Antec 1085 SX black Antec 500 Earth watts PSU Xigmatek 1283 Cine Bench 6.82 GL Bench 62.42
