Most Favorable Review

Just what i needed

MSI GeForce 9400 GT 1GB GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card N9400GT-MD1G
MSI GeForce 9400 GT 1GB GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card N9400GT-MD1G

Pros: HDMI port is a defenite plus, 1GB of memory. Games played so far has only been WoW. Maxed settings barely any lag at all.

Cons: none

Overall Review: sound delivery through HDMI. unfortunately, it connects to the board for sound via SPDIF, the sound that way has a lot of static.

Exceeded my expectations

Overall Review: After looking around different guides to be able to play WoW at max settings, I decided that it wasn't worth the hassle and figured i would just play at somewhat lower settings. Combined with an i5 core, I was able to run max settings with this card anyways. My screen only supports 60hz so i have vsync on and thus capping fps at 60. If i was to turn off vsync, i can see upwards of 90-98fps. Naturally, this induces screen tearing so its better for me to cap at 60fps anyways.

Second stick

Pros: well its my second one i buy so i'm running at 2gb now, plug and play, easy to set up

Cons: not really a con, but this stick came with the little G.Skill emblem like the other ones they have, my first one didnt have it, guess its a new thing now. darn....

Overall Review: cosmetic issues aside, the sticks are both working great, the first one was bought back in December and its fine

Forgot to mention

MSI 945GCM5-F LGA 775 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: As stated before, looks great, works great, and the BIOS are quite simple and easy to follow. Also North and South bridge have the heatsinks, but i suggest getting small fans for them, they tend to get a little hot.

Cons: It holds you back for OCing a bit, good for the ones just starting since you're less likely to fry your cpu.

Overall Review: So far so good, the red color adds a nice touch to your system, if its a sidewindow display of course.

Beautiful case

Pros: Great design, very sturdy, rounded off edges so you dont get cut.

Cons: having to take the front panel off to add/remove drives isnt very fun. Be careful as there are wires connected to the face and you will need to pull a little hard to take it off.

Overall Review: Another person said that if you have it on carpet, putting fans on that front spot is useless. Well the face has holes where the small blue lights are on the sides, so air comes in through there.
