Most Favorable Review

Quality card for less money

XFX Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Video Card HD-657X-CNF2
XFX Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Video Card HD-657X-CNF2

Pros: A great product--everything I do with it has been fantastic. I'm primarily using the new build for school, but I did have an eye toward gaming as I have 2 boys and we frequently play online (Joint Operations), so I wanted a good VC. This one delivered mightily.

Cons: I simply do not like mail-in rebates. Always a pain.

Overall Review: I have yet to get the free Sonic Generations game that came with this to work. Can hear the sound, but black screen and none of the workarounds online work. I'm not bothered by it, but my kids are disappointed.

It's okay...

Pros: Easy install, does what it should.

Cons: The software hung a little, and it's really, really annoying to have to constantly tell it to play through the speakers instead of the front headphone jack, especially when I don't have headphones hooked up.

could be louder

Pros: Very sleek. My desk is crowded as it is, and the small size helps.

Cons: Power cord is very short...so that's annoying.

Better.

Pros: Way better than Vista, that's for sure. I was surprised at the very quick install. I'm impressed with this OS.

Cons: The writing on the COA was very small, very difficult to read. Not a problem with the software, but I'm still getting adjusted to my glasses, and it made me feel somewhat blind!

Pros: Maybe I'm just easy to please, but I've yet to feel negative about anything that I've purchased from newegg--all on 2/14. Good drive, though I haven't tested it's burning capabilities yet.

Cons: None.

Love these things

Pros: Got these for $9 when I ordered the rest of my stuff. Impulse buy. I'm very glad I did--I'm in my church's band, and there are times I need to be able to practice new things, and these headphones are doing well at helping me isolate the acoustic guitar. Clean sound.

Cons: I don't know if it's my sound card or speakers, but they COULD be a little louder.
