Great card!

MSI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC
MSI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC

Pros: This card compared to other high end cards is tiny. The fan on this is the bomb. normaly in games it only gets up to 125 F. Furmark for 15 minutes the max i seen it get was 145F (62C) Runs all games at max, 1920 by 1080. the after burner software is awesome took, i was able to take this card from 725 to 880 before having to touch the volts. Only 2 games actually use 100% GPU on this card and that is crysis (duh!) and bad company 2. Crysis on all high max screen gets bout 40 to 60 fps, BC2 on avg is 90. But BC2 has a lot of long distance views with AF at 16 really kicks its hineyt. Very smooth game play with this card also! I had to 9800 gtx's in sli and this beats the %@# outta em. unigine benchmark for the 9800's was around 905 this girl, 1205 OC'ed was 1441. Power for entire rig and 23 inch monitor is 220 Watts at desktop. and about 390 watts from the wall in furmark. Cant wait to get a second one but i need a newer Mobo as im only on 1066 ram :( after that i am getting a second one.

Cons: sometimes....my system is so dang quiet i forget the rig is on ><

Overall Review: I have a storm sniper case and thats overkill for the card size. I will upload some pics of the GPU usage on certain games so you realize just how much umph this card has.

COOLMAX CUG-950B 950W ATX12V v2.3 EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified / CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC and Compatible with Core i3/i5/i7 Power Supply

Pros: Keeps up plenty of power so far so good, the modular aspect is something different then what i was previously used to.

Cons: If i stand my tower up this PSU makes a hell of a Fan grinding noise, did that since day one. If its on its side its quiet like how its supposed to. Read a few other reviews with peeps having the same issue. May want to take a look into that Maft. Was pretty jacked though regardless, if i sent it back i would have no power in the mean time.

Overall Review: Other then the fan grinding it does what it is supposed to.

pretty nice

Pros: pretty dang bright, small and i can put it on my keychain, come in very handy after a very early car crash i assisted with yesterday. I have a nice battery charger that came with 4x 2700 mha batteries and one 2,000 mah battery that i put in this, so i dont have to worry about juice. Used it for hunting late night already and was plenty of light. Bulbt or head never got hot either. Will last up to 70 hours on low settings, not sure about high though. the clip is very strong and will not easily be pushed in, which is a plus to me

Cons: bit pricey, but i think it was worth it

Overall Review: Thought it was broken when testing the used battery amount when i put that battery back in after a test, make sure you screw the head on alll the way if you do get one, dont let that fool you. I love the looks to
