Best PCI card available

JATON GeForce 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 PCI Low Profile Ready Video Card VIDEO-498PCI-DLP
JATON GeForce 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 PCI Low Profile Ready Video Card VIDEO-498PCI-DLP

Pros: Does everything I expected it to. Heatsink is solid copper. Dual monitor support is a plus. Allows me to stream high definition movies. DirectX 10. Works perfectly with Win 7 32bit.

Cons: PCI has its limits. Not the cards fault. Included drivers are always out of date by the time you get them, get your Geforce drivers from Nvidia's website and nowhere else!!

Overall Review: Breathed new life into an old dell. Runs World of Warcraft at respectable medium settings, even with an old single core processor. Great option for getting higher resolutions on older systems. If you have any option for PCI-E or even AGP, then get that instead. If your PC only has PCI slots like mine, this is the best you can get IMO.

Nice. Quiet. Cool.

Pros: Runs Very Quiet. Stays nice and cool.

Cons: Doesn't draw as much air out of the case as I would like.

Overall Review: This power supply is VERY quiet, but that is because the fan doesn't move that much air. This works perfectly for me, but if you need a power supply to act as the only exhaust fan for your case, look elsewhere. That being said, I have had this power supply for 9 months and where I live, I have had power outages a dozen or more times that cause my system to crash, but this power supply is still going strong. I will definitely buy again, and would recommend to anyone who doesn't have airflow problems.

Intake or exhaust?

Thermaltake TMG SL1 A2414 80mm Blue LED Dual PCI Slot Fan

Pros: Quiet. Moves a good bit of air.

Cons: Blue LED (at least I don't have a window) nothing to lose an egg over.

Overall Review: I took one egg off because in the product description this is listed as being an exhaust fan, but the one I got is an intake fan. I think this will cool my video card just as well, though. It just seems strange. Is this supposed to be an intake fan or exhaust?? Either way it is very quiet and fairly strong.
