Great Card

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5830 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ ATI Eyefinity Technology 100297L
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5830 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ ATI Eyefinity Technology 100297L

Pros: Quiet cool and fantastic graphics, my other PC has 4850 in crossfire (2 gig total). This card keeps up with that one hands down. My older games took a quantum leap in quality and response.

Cons: Not one problem from day one.

Overall Review: It's a big card, make sure you have the space before you jump in.

Most Critical Review

Leaves something to be desired

Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case

Pros: Nice large case, more than enough room for ALMOST everything.

Cons: Don't buy this expecting to put in a 240MM radiator, even the ones ANTEC makes will not fit.

Overall Review: The upper and lower tanks on the double cooler hit.

Great CPU cooler

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: Took a small amount of work to install, but the results were more than worth the effort. This beats the blazes out of fabricating a liquid cooler. Out of the box in the case and on your way. When I started the PC ot was instant gratification, the CPU dropped about 20 degrees F no matter how hard I played, and my AMD Phenom II X4 955 always ran hot evev on idle.

Cons: I doubt there will ever be a con with this unit

Overall Review: If this can cool AMD, there are no other challanges out there.

Must have for gamers

Silverstone FF143B 140mm Ultra Fine Fan Filter with Magnet (Black)
Silverstone FF143B 140mm Ultra Fine Fan Filter with Magnet (Black)

Pros: The dust and fines that these filters have stopped is amazing. We don't have pets or children and yet the amount of dust these stop is unbelievable. They will make my life a lot easier, not having to clean the heatsink monthly.

Cons: I didn't think of these before now.

Overall Review: I have an Antec nine hundred with fans galore, CPU and case have dropped 10 degrees F.

XPG 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1600GB2G9-2G

Pros: I have had (4) 2 GIG sticks since June 2010 never a hiccup, the most realiable memory I have purchased.

Cons: Not a single complaint

Overall Review: M4A79T Deluxe mobo Phenom II X 4 CPU 4870 1 gig X 2

Went out with class

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat  (Jewel Case) PC Game
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (Jewel Case) PC Game

Pros: The last in the series, but the best release of the three, especially when modded with the "Complete Mod". This is a game that can give you several avenues of gameplay, depending on the choices you make through the levels.

Cons: This series, even the final has none.

Overall Review: A low memory, the 2gig level will have a lot of stuttering.
