Awesome card til dx10

XFX GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT71PUDE3
XFX GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT71PUDE3

Pros: It's cheap and works really well. Very overclockable. Mine is currently running at 600/824 with 0 problems and at the same temp as the normal 480/700.

Cons: The fan can get a little loud under full load, but not too bad. I'd replace it with a zalman anyway :P

Overall Review: If you want a cheap-ish yet very good card to hold you over until dx10, this is definately it.

Pros: Reads temps, controls fans, and looks good. At least from the pics I've seen.

Cons: Mine does not fit well in my NZXT Apollo case. Came with no instructions so I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or not. When I finally get it in, it doesn't fit tight enough. I had high hopes for this, but so far it's been nothing but a hassle.

Overall Review: Guess I'll have to buy a different monitor if this one doesn't fit in my case the way it SHOULD.

So far so good...

CyberpowerPC Desktop PC Gamer Ultra 2072 Phenom II X6 1100T (3.30GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6950 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
CyberpowerPC Desktop PC Gamer Ultra 2072 Phenom II X6 1100T (3.30GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6950 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Pros: As was said, giant, well-ventilated case. Cool and quiet. No problems so far (Day 4). Playing Rift on ultra no problem, haven't played anything else yet but I know it'll have no troubles. 8 GB ram + 6950 (6970 if you want...). Very fast at everything I do, and the price seems great for what it has.

Cons: Cyberpower uses XtremeGear PSU's which are ... not so good, but I've ordered a modular Thermaltake to replace it with cuz let's face it, for $1300 you don't want a cheap PSU in there.

Overall Review: First upgraded pc in almost six years. Coming from an X2 3800+ with 3 GB ram and a 7900GS gpu and WinXP.. wow. Lol. Just amazing how fast everything runs now, Windows 7 is pretty awesome, and I can run every game I have from Rift to BC2 on max settings without an issue. Can't wait for BF3 now!

Not sure...

ViewSonic X Series VX922 19" SXGA 1280 x 1024 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor
ViewSonic X Series VX922 19" SXGA 1280 x 1024 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor

Pros: My first lcd and overall it's quite nice. Coming from a 17' crt this screen is huge. There is NO ghosting in games, but there is slight blurring if I move my applications (i.e. Yahoo messenger) around the screen. Not sure if that's normal or not. It's definately great for games.

Cons: Like another reviewer before me, and some reviews on cnet have said, the right/left side of my screen is supposed to be white, but it has a yellow tint to it. I'm not sure if it's like this with all of these monitors or not, so I don't know if I should send it back for a new one. If it wasn't for this annoying yellow tint this monitor would be the best thing I've ever used. It is awesome otherwise.

Overall Review: Newegg is fast. Ordered on Wednesday in the afternoon and it arrived on Thursday afternoon.

Pros: Price. Speed.

Cons: It can be pretty loud, but I did what an earlier reviewer did... downloaded DriveSpeed and set the speed to 32x and it's now dead silent.

Eh, it works.

Pros: Fast. Not that expensive.

Cons: Mine is running at 5-5-5-18 on a ga-m55sli-s4 mobo and I can't seem to get it to the advertised 5-5-5-12 which kind of ticks me off, but whatever. The price has also gone up 10 bucks from the time I bought mine. I need to buy one more before it goes up again.. though I may just buy 2 gigs of a different brand if I can't get this one to run at the advertised 5-5-5-12.
