Nice

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850 W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850 W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Runs quiet, Monster sized 12V rail. Runs both of my GTX 285s without a hitch as well as my core i7 920

Cons: Not modular, doesn't do the laundry or dishes for me.

Most Critical Review

Nice, but beware...

RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black ATX-612WEB 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case
RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black ATX-612WEB 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case

Pros: The case is fairly decent in size, cool looking green LEDs add a nice effect, plenty of stock fans, fairly solid construction.

Cons: Beware! DO NOT BUY THIS CASE IF YOU HAVE A LARGE CPU HEATSINK. If you have a large aftermarket CPU cooler that you plan to install DO NOT use the fold out mobo tray. The reason is because when you go back to fold the mobo in the heatsink will hit the power supply and you won't be able to close the case. This happened to me when I installed my CoolerMaster Hyper N 520 Heatsink on my new Core i7. Ended up trying to bend the psu mount to get the board back into position only to realize that the PSU would not fit into place with the mobo tray folded up. BOTTOM LINE: DO NOT BUY THIS CASE IF YOU HAVE A LARGE AFTERMARKET HEATSINK. Fans also a little weak but thats to be expected.

Overall Review: Only knocked off two eggs because despite all the flaws the case was great for the price

Almost DOA

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It wasn't completely dead.

Cons: Only showed about 800GB of unallocated space. Didn't even show up on one of my controllers.

Overall Review: Better off buying a good solid brand like Western Digital. I guess you get what you pay for.

Well that sucked....

Call of Duty World at War PC Game
Call of Duty World at War PC Game

Pros: It was free with my graphics card...Roebuck is played by Keifer Sutherland.

Cons: The game is boring, repetitive totally unlike Modern Warefare. Each battle is the same, kill everybody in your path, get from point A to point B, oh but wait there's yet again another MG that's cutting you down, and yet again another ambush, oh and there's yet again another cut scene where some hostage is executed or almost executed blah blah blah blah.....also Reznov is literally the most annoying character in any game I have played, his constant blabber gets annoying. Also the game is unnecessarily bloody and gory, when you shoot someone with a sniper rifle or high powered machine gun the game literally shows their arm/leg/head/hand/foot/etc getting blown off in a shower of blood, then the victim writhes around on the floor with their shredded appendage in full view. I know that's more of a personal gripe but I just found it unnecessary, it didn't add to the game at all. I enjoyed Modern Warefare much more and it didn't have half the gore that WaW had.

Overall Review: Don't buy it, its not worth 20$, it was so bad that I uninstalled it.

Wow.....

EVGA GeForce GTX 285 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 01G-P3-1180-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 285 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 01G-P3-1180-AR

Pros: The two of these I ordered really scream through any game. Quite a step up from my single 3850 AGP. With two of these in SLI I can play Crysis at 1920x1200, maxed out with 4x AA.

Cons: Makes a high pitched squeal when games hit high FPS (like in the thousands) like when loading game menus. Not really noticeable unless you listen for it

Overall Review: Case airflow is the secret to low temps.

Sounds nice but....

Pros: It sounds like it would be an awesome addition to my computer

Cons: Not compatible in my my workstation

Overall Review: Don't buy if you own an hp xw800, Bios won't initialize with this card in any of the slots
