2 Raptors on SPEEEEEED!

Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74GB 10000 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: FAST

Cons: Small...loud?

Overall Review: Let's face it. 74GB is small compared to what's out there now. But 2 74GB 10,000 RPM HDs on RAID 0 is the best thing that ever happened to gaming and me! Some say these drives are loud but I also have a V1100 LianLi case which is padded so I don't hear a peep! Get this drive if you're a performance freak and you want to load into the map before everyone else and get to the chopper or your choice of jet!!!

Fantastic Camera

SONY DSC-S500 Silver 6.0 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
SONY DSC-S500 Silver 6.0 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: This is thing is truly awesome. It takes fantastic high res images at all distances. Good size LCD, lightweight and very portable. Buttons aren't small, so you don't need tiny fingers to operate. It's an all around great camera.

Cons: The only thing I don't like is that there is no manual function, so you're stuck with the auto functions, which are fine but I like being able to set aperture size and light allocation myself. Also, there is no zoom in/zoom out feature in video mode. You're stuck recording in the zoom mode which you began. Sony's AA batteries die FAST!! Get rechargeable!

Overall Review: Price is fantastic, for what you're getting. 6 MegaPixel camera for $150 is awesome. I got the full combo, as a 1GB memory stick is a must have. Make sure you get rechargeable batteries. And of course - Newegg rocks!!! But everyone knows that!

GREAT PSU with a twist!!

ENERMAX Noisetaker EG701AX-VE SFMA(24P) 600 W EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This thing is quiet and it works. It's got SLI action happening and 600W lets you do anything you want!

Cons: The first one I got was DOA. The 12th rail was shot. It couldn't do a thing.

Overall Review: Odly enough, the last Enermax PSU I bought prior to this was also DOA. Maybe I have a curse with Enermax! It's a great PSU and props to newegg for prompt RMA service!

INSANE!!

Saitek X52 Flight Control System

Comments: This FCS system is amazing! I bought it for BF2 and it rules for jets. I'm a stunt pilot and I've gotten so used to flying with the mouse and keyboard that I do that exclusively for helicopters. What's great is I can set the throttle to 30% power and use that as my safety margin for thrust when flying helos. Like I said, I can't use the stick for helos cause I'm used to the mouse/keyboard combo but I do use the throttle. And the buttons! WOW!! There are so many buttons and you can set them to do everything! The only thing they can't do that I really need is to mute my parents and prevent them from bugging me while I play BF2!!!
