Pros: -$77 after rebate and taxes! -1GB of GDDR3 memory -Handles almost any game I throw at it on Max settings (1280 x 1024)

Cons: -Rebate (Can’t trust rebates) -Almost $10 in taxes!! -Gets pretty hot (67 Celsius) -Can get loud during a lot of activity

Overall Review: Athlon II X4 640 640GB Caviar Black 4GB DDR3 1333 Ripjaws 430 Watts Antec Basiq

Most Critical Review

Flimsy

Nikon COOLPIX L26 Red 16.1 MP 5X Optical Zoom 26mm Wide Angle Digital Camera
Nikon COOLPIX L26 Red 16.1 MP 5X Optical Zoom 26mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

Pros: Takes nice pictures

Cons: Dead pixel in center of LCD. Uses AA batteries. Cheap plastic. Not too many settings.

Overall Review: Should not have bought refurbished!!!

Not worth the money

Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K1000.B HDT721064SLA360 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K1000.B HDT721064SLA360 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: It holds a decent amount of stuff.... Thats it.

Cons: I honestly don't know who would spend $70 for this... Yes, it holds alot of stuff but it is 'AVERAGE' maybe even below average - seeing as how SSD's are flooding the market at cheaper prices.

Overall Review: My advice: get an SSD or at least a hard drive with 64 mb cache for this price. Or just buy another part for your computer to help it run smoother

Nice Case, No Rebate yet

Thermaltake V4 Black Edition Gaming Chassis Mid Tower Steel Computer Case Fully Black Powdered Interior VM30001W2Z

Pros: Very good airflow after I've added another fan. Really nice mesh material.

Cons: LED fan does not look as great as it was advertised. I can't even see it from where I sit. Still waiting on my "No-Wait" Rebate. Its been almost 8 weeks. I was supposed to have had it 4 weeks ago. Very disappointed. My HDD LED does not light up as bright as the Power LED. Had to push the Blue LED farther back and bring out the Red LED, just to get them even. The motherboard mounting screws were also a bit of a pain. No instructions on whether they are necessary. They aren't.

Overall Review: Might go with another case next time. Definitely not getting anymore rebate products . . .

8 GB

Pros: Have 2 of these babies installed on my system. Bought one a while ago and another a few weeks ago. My games play like a champ with the extra 4GB installed. No stuttering! Also look really cool installed!

Cons: . . . . None so far, Maybe the price drop since my first stick. $50 compared to $40 now

Nice mouse

GIGABYTE M6800 GM-M6800 Noble Black 4 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
GIGABYTE M6800 GM-M6800 Noble Black 4 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Great mouse for the price. I've purchased some for $20 + that were not this nice. Looked a little big when it got here, but I got used to it fast. Very comfortable. Buttons click okay. DPI and the two side buttons come in handy for games.

Cons: Middle Mouse button is a little loud

Overall Review: Would've been 6 eggs if the bottom laser was blue to match my keyboard ^_^
