Not a Pretty one

Athenatech A4202BG.X350 Black/Gray Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 350W Power Supply
Athenatech A4202BG.X350 Black/Gray Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 350W Power Supply

Pros: It all worked, but I cant give anything this cheap Five Eggs.

Cons: Its fuggly. Bought another PSU just to be safe.

Overall Review: No problems with this case, other than staring at it. It powered up and made a nice cheap rig for my dad to surf the net and write Emails.

Junk!

ENCORE ENLWI-G(2) Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g TPCI Standard Universal Add-in card Compliant with PCI 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
ENCORE ENLWI-G(2) Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g TPCI Standard Universal Add-in card Compliant with PCI 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Man, Ive installed lots of name brand wireless setups with very few problems. None that I couldnt fix! So I set my Dad up with this adapter to go with his new DSL 2 wire Router/Modem.

Cons: Picked up good solid signal, then just drop out after five min. or less. then may or may not reconnect! When it did reconnect it would have a wierd pause/freeze up for 2-3 seconds at a time.

Overall Review: Went back to a hard wire til I get a Lynksys card. Im gonna try this POScard in another rig and see if it works there. If not I will stomp it to dust!

What a Joke

Pros: They should just give this away as a free upgrade. If that what you want to call it.

Cons: Its a pain in the whole A hole to get installed. Disc 1-2-1 then M.C. It literally prompts you the wrong way! How did they miss that?

Overall Review: I like the way it looks ok. Its kinda like dressing up for church. Under those fancy clothes, its still the same ol' you...

Nice and Heavy

Pros: You know the feel of a good Power Supply? Thats what you feel like with this board. Im coming off a DFI that I loved. This should make me happy too.

Cons: Pretty sure it came with a dead PCI slot. Couldnt get my wireless card to show up. Tried it a couple of different times with no luck. Stuffed it the next one and all was good.

Overall Review: As long as I dont need that one PCI slot, this board is nice. If I go SLI like I plan too, I probably cant use it anyway.

Wicked Good Card

Pros: This is one sweet card for the money. Love it!.

Cons: Nuttin

Overall Review: Im gonna get another and go SLI. Its Played every thing I threw at it. All on HIGH.
