Nice Card!

HIS Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H487F512P
HIS Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H487F512P

Pros: Its pretty fast! I went from an EVGA 8800GTS G92 Core... Maxes out Fallout 3/GRID/Lost Planet/Assassins Creed without any lag ever @ 1680x1050... Crysis runs at all very high settings and 2x AA @ 1680x1050... It destroys COD4/C&C3/RA3/GoW.. I scored 150895 on 3DMark06.. Scores 5.9 in Vista... Overall the video card is great... Main reason i bought it is because i sold my 8800GTS G92 for 200 bucks... so i only paid 87 bucks for it... But going from my old 8800GTS, its pretty hard justifying 300 bucks for it... but if you are upgrading from a slower card, i recommend it... I am really pleased with its performance... like i said, crysis, gears of war, fallout 3, grid, red alert 3, assassins creed, all look amazing... Plus it came with that odd HD card and a screw driver ;p

Cons: Only that the card runs pretty hot... idles around 75C with very good cooling inside my case... got around 95 playing fallout 3 for a couple hours... just override the fan speed in CCC and set it around 40%... ittle run about 60 degrees under load, and it isnt that loud... but at 100 percent fan speed, its reallllllly loud...

Overall Review: I play all my games @ 1680 x 1050 resoulation.. Intel Q6600 @ 3.465MHz (FSB 385, DRAM:FSB 1:1) 4GB DDR 800 @ 5-5-5-18 HIS Radeon HD4870 Older gigabyte motherboard.. CPU Idles at 30C, load 41C Video Card Idles at 70C, load 95C (stock fan/clock speeds) Video Card Idles at 55C, load 70C (fan @ 40%/stock clock)

Well, its free :p

HIS HIC1X4067 iClear Video Signal Noise Reduction Card
HIS HIC1X4067 iClear Video Signal Noise Reduction Card

Pros: Very good for free... I cant notice a difference, so i wouldn't spend 80 bucks on it... It does make my pc look more powerful... about all i can say for it, is that its plugged into my PCIx slot... better then dust being in there :p

Cons: Well... i cant have a reason to complain, because i got free with a bundle deal, and it didn't hurt my pc..

Overall Review: Fallout 3 is an amazing game Crysis really doesn't have that bad of a story line Cant wait for Red Alert 3 Fallout 3 is awesome Vista isnt THAT bad Intel is better then AMD (for now) I have lost respect for ASUS motherboards and Fallout 3 IS an amazing game

Amazing after 4 months

XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler  I5 775 AMD compatible
XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler I5 775 AMD compatible

Pros: This cooler is still amazing me... first of all, buy the better mounting kit (Item #: N82E16835233019)... Using articsilver 5, my new Q6700 @ 3.66GHz idles at 28 Celsius, and max load from Everest stress test for 5 mins, 35 Celsius... Playing warhead/fallout 3/RA3, it never rises above 40... I dont use coretemp on my G15 keyboard anymore because it never even thinks about overheating...

Cons: Honestly, none... only think that slightly bothers me, is having to take off the fan after installing it for the first time... its not hard, just kinda annoying...

Overall Review: its amazing... better then the IFX heatsink for 80 bucks... please. buy this... you WILL NOT be disappointed...

AMAZING!!!

XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler I5 775 AMD compatible

Pros: Very easy to install with the extra kit... (N82E16835233019) I love it.... Great... I had the tuniq tower 120, and my q6600 at stock settings were bouncing around 70 Celsius... i knew it wasn't right, but with this, running at 3150mhz, idle is 31, and under full Everest stress test it runs 59 Celsius... used arctic silver 5 with the putrefying compound..

Cons: none... none what so ever...

Overall Review: None... great cooler... just get the extra kit for it... i love it...

Pros: Its great. I am only a gamer, so i bought the new ultimate... It took 400 3dmark03 points off my score. when running xp, i scored 14866. when running ultimate, i scored 14407. I love it. networks great with xp. buy it... i love it. works great with amd 4000+, 2GB ddr400, and x1950 pro. (all oc'ed)

Cons: It will take around 2 - 3 hours to learn about where everything is... but its worth it.

PERFECT!!!

Hanns-G HW-191DPB 19" WXGA+ 1440 x 900 D-Sub, DVI-D Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: I have had this LCD since August of this year. Its 100% perfect!!! I use if for pure gaming. I have took it to over 30 personal LAN parties with my friends. I went form a 19" Flatscreen CRT, to this, and oh my. I cannot believe the difference. Its perfect in games. No dead pixles, no ghosting. I was very spectical about getting an LCD beacuse of dead pixels, ghosting, and backlighting. Its grate. Shows a flawless pictures. Perfect! Another plus is the case it comes in. The case is very sturdy. I pack up my pc and put my LCD in the box, throw them intot the back of my car, and i am ready to go.

Cons: Only two: First, the monitior is a little bit flimsey. Like, when you get it set up on a good surface, you can move it easiley from side to side. but it is not really an issue. Second, not really a flaw, beacuse i use headphones, but the speakers are a joke for any type of games. They sound fine for music, but explosions and gunfire dont sount the best through these

Overall Review: Perfect picture, low price, DVI, built in speakers, sturdy box for a carring case, and all the complements you will receive means you need to buy this LCD. I have allways been a Viewsonic man, but now i do believe, i am a HannsG man.
