Most Favorable Review

Good Processor for the price

Intel Celeron E3200 - Celeron Dual-Core Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80571E3200
Intel Celeron E3200 - Celeron Dual-Core Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80571E3200

Pros: Fast!-for the price

Cons: Not that fast in the grand scheme of things. But the price IS right.

Overall Review: For a decent gaming or home computer this is an excellent processor. I had to knock off one egg for a DOA. But newegg took it back and shipped me another one.

Good memory

HyperX 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model KHX8500D2K2/2G
HyperX 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model KHX8500D2K2/2G

Pros: Works well at 1066 speeds. Easy install (derp derp)

Cons: Have to manually find and set BIOS timings to reach 1066 speeds, but that's usually normal.

Perfect Budget OC Chip

Intel Pentium E5800 - Pentium Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor - BX80571E5800
Intel Pentium E5800 - Pentium Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor - BX80571E5800

Pros: Cheap. Still on LGA 775. Perfect for those who are still clinging to the 775 standard. Fast for the price. Easy to OC. This chip has a high multi x16, and I was able to get it to 4.0 ghz on air with just 12x multi. It's a good chip.

Cons: More L2 cache would be nice. But so would it being delivered by strippers.

Good Case for the Price

NZXT BETA EVO Classic Series CS-NT-BETA-EVO Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
NZXT BETA EVO Classic Series CS-NT-BETA-EVO Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: For the Money, An Excellent Case. Nice LED fan, Lots of Fan mount points. Roomy. Plastic Clips make for easy, mostly-screwdriver-less install of basic parts. Sexy, Clean, Design.

Cons: plastic clips do not fit everything and feel clunky. fan mounts only fit larger body fans. Thin Metal Construction.

Overall Review: For the money, as a modder's case this is Unbeatable. If I wanted a perfect case I woulda had to spend a few hundered more. For the price this is a beast of a Case.
