Pros: Great drive, burns almost anything. Fast too.

Cons: When a CD or DVD is at full speed in this, i thought it was gonna shoot out.

Overall Review: Quiet drive for the most part, Installed xp pretty quick.

Great Deal

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 - Core 2 Duo Allendale Dual-Core 1.8 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E4300
Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 - Core 2 Duo Allendale Dual-Core 1.8 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E4300

Pros: Great overclocker, very fast at stock speeds, even faster when OC'd.

Cons: None yet, but i can only get to 3285MHz on mine.(Haven't tried 1.4v yet)

Overall Review: I have this running at 2.9GHz right now, the voltage at 1.29(which is below stock) and its stable using Orthos for 7 hours(thats when i stopped it). My load temps now get about 62C. Im using a gigabyte DS3 and Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. When OC'ed to 3.2GHz, SuperPi 1M finishes in about 19 seconds, compared to stock clock speeds which takes about 30. This is the first system I have built, and i am used to a P4 2.93GHz. This C2D compared to a P4 blows it out of the water. For the budget system, this is a must have.

Great Budget FAn

MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: People say this fan isn't quiet, but I thought this was basically silent. It actually pushes a good amount of air, and is well built, with a sleeved cable.

Cons: No Cons!!

Overall Review: Great to help cool down your system. Still surprised at how great this fan was for a very low price!

Watch Out!!!!!!

Eagle Tech Viper ET-CAV2-RD-WOP Red 1.0 mm Aluminum alloy Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good overall case.

Cons: Eagle Tech Illegally manufacturing products under the XG brand!!!!! Read for yourself at xgbox dot com I cant post links but type that in yourself!

Overall Review: I dont know what to think. XG says that eagle tech was illegally manufacturing things. Because of this I doubt you and I will receive our rebates with them.

Good Deal

Pros: Check out this great review of this case at They have a several additional pictures of the case and, it really isnt that small. I wouldnt recommend for SLI, but it can fit an 8800 or other high end GRFX

Cons: Should replace the front 80mm fan. Get a 120mm fan off this website, with red leds. Its only like 4 dollars.

Overall Review: This case is definitely a great deal, especially after the rebate. It looks cool, has a nice LCD, and with a high CFM 5 dollar fan, it is just a good buy overall.

Pros: About a 2-3x improvement from my onboard video in frames when playing games. If you play graphically intensive games, go with something better obviously. Quiet Fan, overclocks easily.

Cons: Nothing really

Overall Review: P4 2.93GHz, 512mb RAM, this, 160gb hd. Get this for everyday use, it works perfect.
