Very good card

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4850 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100242-1GL

Pros: It's a very high quality card, well worth the money, the 1 GB of RAM on it is incredible and offers the power you need if your playing at high resolutions or just want a good chunck of power. I play Crysis on high settings with decent fps and Crysis Warhead on Enthusiast settings with very playable fps, little dips now and then but, not too bad.

Cons: Runs a little hot, but, my case has some nice heavy duty fans and it keeps it cool and thanks to the new CCC you can easily change the fan speed on the card to keep it even cooler. Just remember you'll still need some good ventilation.

Overall Review: None that haven't already been said in this review. But I'll say this again, very good card, though why it's box was smaller than the box for my sound card I don't know.

Decent

Pros: Big, SATA, good speed.

Cons: I received it DOA, it just simply refused to let me install windows on it. It took me some time to find out it was the hard drive. Went to Best Buy and got a drive of the same brand and size and kind and it's working just fine.

Overall Review: Nice, though, wish I'd gotten a working one on arrival.

Ooooh Pretty

Pros: Very big and beautiful image. Not as heavy as I'd expected which is nice. Buttons on the back are nice, and the menu is pretty easy to navigate.

Cons: Doesn't come with an HDMI cable, I would love to hook this sucker up to my HD 4850. Base was a little difficult to get on, and I have doubts I'll be able to take it off very easily. Was a bit difficult to put the VGA cable in, not a whole lot of space for my big fingers to screw it in. These are mostly situational cons though.

Overall Review: Great image, good even at very high resolutions, it's home resolution is huge and is just fine as is too.

Very Very Comfy

Pros: Easily fit my big head, the sound is incredible. When you use the volume dial on the wire the sound doesn't sound distorted just louder. The ear pieces are very very comfortable I went for about 10 hours straight with them on and didn't feel any discomfort. The cord is long which is very nice though sometimes hard to manage.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Sometimes bits of hair get stuck into the padding alot, though I don't think I've ever had a pair of headphones or a headset where that didn't happen.
