Great budget gamer

ZOTAC ZT-40404-10P SYNERGY GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
ZOTAC ZT-40404-10P SYNERGY GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I have tested this with a few games and so far have had no issues. Games such as Fallout3, DDO,Metro2033, and Sacred2 ran at 1920×1080, full graphics settings. The fan never gets very loud and the games run fluid. To break the card in I hooked 2 monitors up and left the Sacred 2 running with full PhysX for 48 hours straight. Card got up to 96° Fahrenheit. This was a great upgrade for me from a 9800GT. Plus the Copper heat pipes work great.

Cons: Only con is this card is the fact that it still uses a pair of 6 pin power supplies. My past 3 cards have been the low voltage cards. Also the 2 gain card is fairly large in a small case, would have preferred a single gain card.

Overall Review: This is the 4th Zotac card i have owned and if things keep going good for me I will stay with them for many years to come. Wish my motherboard supported SLi not Crossfire. As 2 of these would be wonderful.

Non-Functional

Western Digital Blue RFHWD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Blue RFHWD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 640GB Just what I needed. Great price.

Cons: See other

Overall Review: Got this drive to do a system rebuild for a customer. After the rebuild, I went to install(reinstall system to factory settings). Got an error of insufficient space for install. So I put this on a hard drive dock and get a message of 0MB free space out of 0MB total space. Can not format a disk with no space. So I had to pull a drive from another system to get my customers system back up and running..kind of a waste.

OK, but not great

Velocity Micro Cruz Reader R102 7” Tablet w/ Android OS
Velocity Micro Cruz Reader R102 7” Tablet w/ Android OS

Pros: Small and portable. Low cost(got while $70)

Cons: Came with Android 2.0(will not upgrade to 2.1 for Kindle) Hardware does not support Android 2.2 Only a 2GB Class 4 SD Micro Internal(increasing voids warrenty, though can support up to a 32GB Class 10) 533Mhz CPU. Touch screen requires stylus or fingernail to work. Doesnt come with a stylus. Date and time zone was wrong. Im in PST GMT-8, the clock on the R102 has PST set at GMT-7. So the time can not be set right.

Overall Review: I had to go online for more help as the manual that came with the device was more of a sales brochure and gave no real instructions on how to start things off. I am thinking of sending this back since I had bought this to turn it into a full color kindle and media player for my mother...Since it can not be upgraded to what I need...its basically a $70 brick to me. Instead of going and voiding the warranty I would rather buy a better unit.

Great Mid level Gamers Card

Pros: Clean built card. Low Voltage(Reason I got it) Very Quiet Runs most newer games Mid to max settings.

At 1440x900 max settings it was able to handle games like Sacred 2, Sins of a solar Empire, BF1942, EvE Online, WoW. and at 1440x900 mid-high I played Fallout 3, Crysis, Crysis:Warhead, Quake Wars, Red Faction.
