Xbox Gift Card $25 US (Email Delivery)

Pros: Conveniently the code arrives in your email, is easy to enter in, and you dont have to waste gas driving to get it otherwise.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Ordered a little after midnight, code arrived next day before noon. :) I'd assume ordering during normal business/cs hours will get you the code in under an hour.

Awesome. Easy. Worth It.

Pros: I paid $17usd and it was worth every penny.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Easy to use. Key codes are for steam. :)

If you are going to buy 6870 this is the card. period.

XFX Black Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity HD-687A-ZDBC

Pros: 1. Like others have said, it really is quiet. 2. WEI score of 7.8. 3. Does its job really well (see other thoughts).

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have played Test Drive Unlimited 2, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo, and Metro 2033 (the only DX11 game that I have) and they all played on MAX settings (1920x1080, max Anti-Aliasing, max Anistropic, etc etc) with no lag/hangs/hiccups. :) I upgraded from my old Diamond Radeon HD 3870 512mb. It was obviously a major upgrade and I (like other reviewers) highly recommend the XFX Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition. Specs: OS: Win 7 x64 SP1 Ultimate CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4ghz w/Stock Cooler Ram: G. Skill Ripjaws 1600 4gb (2x2gb) Dual Channel Mobo: ASRock 870 Extreme3 PSU: Raidmax RX-530SS 530W OS HDD: Seagate 500GB w/32mb cache SATA2 Storage HDD: Hitachi 2TB w/32mb cache SATA2

Best burner I have ever owned.

Pros: Price is under $20 bucks. Perfect burns when I burn 8x DVD-R's and 16x CD-R's.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Easily have gone through 100 blank DVD-R's and a couple dozen CD-R's (Verbatim brand). No coasters. Every ASUS product I have ever bought (24" HD monitor, a couple motherboards, and this burner) has been an awesome reliable product.

Best CPU I have ever bought. PERIOD.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor - HDZ965FBGMBOX

Pros: I don't really know a better way of saying this but this chip is GREAT! Fastest chip that I have ever owned (previous CPU was the AMD 6000+). Price is so good that I almost wanna pay AMD a little more out of pocket just because its so fair. :)

Cons: Absolutely none at all. A Cons option should not even be listed for this CPU.

Overall Review: This is my 2nd AMD build (i have been building my own machines every few years for the past 13 years). I am now convinced that I will always buy AMD because (a) they are enough power to play the latest games, and (b) the price is always more than fair. This CPU (3.57ghz OC) along with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, an ASRock 870 Extreme3, 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600 (G.Skill Ripjaws), 1 (Diamond) ATI 3870HD 512MB (old i know), and 2 7200RPM SATAII HDD's does everything I wanted it to do, and then some. It plays Mafia II, Amnesia, World of Tanks, and Urban Terror all on the highest settings with great framerates and absolutely no lag/hanging. Converting movies from xvid to DVD via ConvertXtoDVD takes no time at all (I average a little over 300fps on xvid's with sizes of 700mb to 1400mb). On a typical day I have about 4 programs open in my system tray, a movie converting, a 1080p HD .mkv movie being watched, and an Internet Browser open and ready to blaze the interwebs. :

Works Great

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch

Pros: Powers everything I have (AMD Phenom II 965BE, ASRock 870 Extreme3 Motherboard, G. Skill Ripjaws 4GB (2x2GB sticks) DDR3 RAM, 1 (Diamond) ATI 3870HD (old i know), 1 Case fan, 1 LG DVD Burner, and 2 SATA II HDD's) without a single problem. Blue LED 135mm fan looks cool and keeps me machine cool with only 1 other case fan. Price is fantastic ($40 when i purchased it).

Cons: Not as silent as some might claim but nowhere near loud either.

Overall Review: My machine is on 24/7 and so far (2 weeks straight of being constantly on) everything is working fine. If your specs are anywhere close to what i posted above and are thinking of getting high end graphics card(s) (like a 5970 or equivalent) and intend on having your machine on 24/7 get a 650w or higher if u expect good results out of your computer, if you do not intend on having high end graphics card(s), then I HIGHLY recommend this super deal of a PSU.
