Awesome Bang for Your Buck

HIS Radeon HD 4670 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H467QR1GH
HIS Radeon HD 4670 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H467QR1GH

Pros: I purchased this card for my brother to specifically play starcraft two. We learned very quickly that this card goes above and beyond that while still being a very moderately priced graphics card. If you are new to building computers or are on a very tight budget look no where else but this Graphics Card I was absolutely blown away. put it this way I am running a 550 ti and this card was performing nearly to its capability. Buy this card and stick with this brand they do wonderful things!!! Plus this thing will operate on a 300W power supply, so if you have purchased a random desktop from the local best buy this card will definately run on that pc no questions asked. Furthermore because I have built 300W systems before this is the best performing graphics card that you can get to run on 300w PERIOD!.

Cons: It is by all means nothing mind boggling but if you want a great GPU that will make your family happy as can be with gaming entertainment now and into the future this card will make you father of the year to them!!! Or brother in my case :D

Overall Review: As I said if you are new to expanding or building computers definately go for this, however if you have different specifications with your power supply being above 300 W or you have a higher budget definately go for a higher end card. I greatly suggest the 550 ti that I purchased or the 460 both by nvidia, or another great one the 5770 by ATI. If you have a bit more cash then check out the GTX 560 byt far the best performing card for the price out there. Happy Hunting!!!

Great Card Go EVGA!!!

EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Phenomenal overclocking tool included. This card can play all the newest games at high settings at a decent resolution. So far I have run Crysis at high settings and am getting 30+ FPS Starcraft 2 at Max 30+ FPS Dead Space Maxed 30+ FPS. This card is one of the best buys I have made in a long time.

Cons: Depending on how severely you want to game the 460 is a substitute, but I prefer newer generation cards > Older. Also the 560 stomps the 550 so if you got an extra 50 or 60 bucks definitely pick up the 560

Overall Review: This comes with a dvi to vga adapter and keeps very cool especially with the fan control settings.

Overclocked Stable at 3.5 Ghz

Pros: I ran bench mark test and was able to get this thing stable with voltage tinkering at 3.8 ghz. I currently run mine at 3.5 ghz just so I can ensure the longevity of the CPU. I am absolutely pleased with my purchase.

Cons: No L3 Cache but it could be worse

Overall Review: Definately think about spending the extra bucks for a black edition however, if you are on a budget look no further 5 EGGS!

Spits Out Air!!!

Antec 761345-75024-0 Blue LED 3-Speed Case Cooling Fan

Pros: This fan looks great runs very silent has an easy adjustment switch and just throws air at your system.

Cons: I bought this from staples for 4 dollars over priced, oh well

Overall Review: If you don't have an easy access case the switch cable is not very long to manage properly for ease of access. I suggest a buy if you want a great blue glow with a great fan

Worked For Me

GIGABYTE GA-770T-USB3 AM3 AMD 770 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: For me this board is wonderful and very capable

Cons: Be aware as I was that there have been many bad reviews about this board. I may not be one of them but It is something that you should be aware of.

Overall Review: Great brand to stick with sometimes components get goofed in the mail dont blame the company

Great Product a Must Buy

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58W Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58W Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Tons of room with great ventilation and room to expand your build. I used this case on my first PC build ever and I am so happy with this product, the two stock fans that run through the tower effectively keep the entire unit cool, plus there is plenty of room for more fans. This case runs quiet and has very accessible feature on the front.

Cons: The led and usb wires are a little bit short if you are using a smaller mobo, but dont get me wrong they connect just fine, I have heard complaints about the shipping, mine was completely fine but understand that this is due to shipping companies

Overall Review: 5 eggs buy this product especially if it is on sale
