Fast, quiet, unobtrusive

Pros: I think the greatest thing you can say about a hard drive is that you dont even know its there. Most pepople only take notice of their hard drive when its slow, loud, or otherwise annoying. This drive is none of the above. It is fast, quiet, and you dont even think about it after a while, because it gives you no reason to, it just works, and it works really well. Its fast, I never find myself waiting for it to complete reads/writes, and its quiet, if I want to know if its doing something, I have to look at the LED on my case. No complaints, never leaves me waiting.

Cons: NONE

Great card if you can find one

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Trinity OC 8GB GDDR6X 256-bit 19 Gbps PCIE 4.0 Gaming Graphics Card, IceStorm 2.0 Advanced Cooling, SPECTRA 2.0 RGB Lighting, ZT-A30710J-10P

Pros: -Fast -Reasonably quiet

Cons: -Pretty long. I had to install a low-profile fan in my case to clear the back of the card. Make sure you have room in your case before you buy

Overall Review: Overall its a good card, in todays weird GPU market many of us are taking what we can get, so if you get this, its not bad at all. I see reviews mentioning the VRM's run hot, but if you register your GPU with Zotac they extend your warranty to 3 years, so I feel like you're pretty protected there.

Great for gaming and movies

Pros: Great monitor for gaming or movies. I got mine with 0 dead pixels. The color is great right out of the box. HL2 looks beautiful, heck, even windows looks good on this thing. No complaints. Will be buying another for dual-monitor goodness.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Speakers are useless, I have no idea how they sound because I never even hooked them up. Also, to the guy complaining about having warnings on the screen that dont go away, read the whole warning, there is an option to turn them off permanently.

Exellent RAM for the money

Pros: Not much to say, runs great, no lockups or anything. Heat spreaders are a nice touch. Running 2x1gb sticks with no trouble at all. Mushkin is top-shelf stuff.

Cons: NONE

FAST!!!

Pros: There really isnt much to say about this card other than its FAST!! I have been running HL2 at the absolute highest settings and this card doesnt even break a sweat. No problems with install, latest nVidia drivers work great. I cant really hear it in my case, at least, I cant tell if what I hear is the powersupply or this card, so either way, its not very loud.

Cons: NONE, buy this card if you are looking for the top-dog DX9 card.

Overall Review: This card is still a smoking deal despite being a DX9 card, as all the DX10 cards are still quite expensive, and this card wont be running out of steam any time soon.

Good looking case, great airflow, easy install

Pros: Not a whole lot to say other than this case looks good, has great airlflow, and everything is easy to install. No problems with anything during the install, and everything went in easily and cleanly. The toolless system is nice, and everything went in no problem.

Cons: NONE
