Great bang for the buck
Pros: - Cheap - 2x1GB - Great bang for the buck
Cons: - None
Overall Review: These may be ValueSelect, but boy, do they do the job and then some. If you're not some HARDCORE gamer who overclocks the component of his/her computer, then this package of RAM is for you. 2x1GB sticks for cheap compared to 2x1GB sticks of high end stuff. On a budget build or want a really good upgrade (but not HARDCORE), then buy these.
Really Good Mobo
Pros: - Onboard everything - Great for budget system
Cons: - No sensor software available from ECS - Needs Bios update to fix temp issues - 2 RAM slots (but to be expected on a micro)
Overall Review: Used this mobo to build a rig for my wife. Had everything she was looking for and then some. My only problems with it were the Bios issues for the sensors (which some still don't work properly, but could just be a faulty sensor). And a small PERSONAL preference, Id like more RAM slots for upgrades. But 2x1GB sticks servers her perfectly. If you're building a budget system, look no further, this mobo has it all. (Gets 4 because of the Bios issue and no software from ECS to monitor temps and speeds)
Big bang for a small buck
Pros: - Great bang for the bunk - 200GBs - Sata - Western Digital
Cons: - None
Overall Review: It's made by Western Digital, the best HDD manufacture in my opinion (WD and Seagate are my favs). It's 200GBs, plenty of room for you gamers and Moms & Dad's that want to hold those precious digital photos. It's 200GBs for a very low price. Great buy!
GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK!!!
Pros: - Amazing bang for the buck!!! - Dual Core - Over-Clockability - Low temps
Cons: - No HSF (but allowed me to get a better HSF anyway)
Overall Review: Build a rig for my wife with this CPU, and at first the temps were way too low (bios issue, now fixed). Now... they're just low. They run around 15-18 idle(because of software), 28-35 under load (depending on high-max load). It's a great CPU, and great bang for the buck. It's easily overclockable so get a good HSF and PSU and pump this baby up.
Pros: - Good bang for the Buck - Looks cool - Does it's job well
Cons: - For what it's designed for and it's price, none.
Overall Review: No this isn't the best CPU HSF out there, but it's also not meant to be. For it's price, it does a really good job. Lowers the CPU temps a few degrees over a stock HSF. It looks cool. If you've build quite a few rigs like I have, than you'll find this HSF easy to install, compared to other more complicated and "feel like your CPU is about to crack" styles.
Pros: - Cheap - Let you hear your sounds - Cheap
Cons: - They have next to no bass (might as well say none) - They don't sound the greatest - Speaker-Speaker cord is a little short, could have been longer
Overall Review: I bought the same ones but beige, they no longer sell those ones. They don't sound the greatest because they're not meant to. They're CHEAP, REALLY CHEAP. So don't expect concert audio from these things. You should get them just so you can hear what you're doing/playing.
