Great Card

XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT98GYDLH
XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT98GYDLH

Pros: Great performance at a reasonable price. New circuitry doesn't require additional 6-pin power, but gives the same performance.

Cons: During load the fan is a bit loud, but while it is idle or mild use it is nice and quiet.

Overall Review: The last picture that displays the box, card and contents is misleading. This card (PVT98GYDLH) no longer has a 6-pin power port. The first 3 pictures are correct. XFX is proving to be a quality company to buy from.

Good package for the price

Polk Audio RM510 5.1 CH High Performance Home Theater Speaker System

Pros: -Overall good and clear sound throughout volume range. -Can push these a lot harder before distortion than I would have thought. -Clean looking components -Appropriate mounts included (Wall and bookshelf) -Very clear instructions in the case you need them. Good for people who are new to positioning surround sound speakers. Examples of many room types are clearly explained.

Cons: -Sub box is a bit larger than I would have expected for the size of the cone. -The Auto-On/Off switch sometimes takes a little too long to notice an input to kick the sub on.

Overall Review: -Would love to have a down-ward facing sub. -I agree with others that having a screw style connection would be nicer and preferred. Although, I did not have any issues with them being loose or no securely holding the speaker wire when connected.

Good Buy

Pros: Great price. Plenty of power. Not modular, but sleeved cables keep things tidy. Quiet but effective fan.

Cons: Multiple rails, would rather have just a single rail. Not Modular, but has plenty of connections so you have a bit of cable to organize.

Overall Review: Because of the multiple rails the max amp draw is low, so for some high end rigs a bit of planning is needed to place components.

Very Loud/Good Quality

Logitech Z-2300 200 watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: Plenty loud enough for just about anything. Good sound quality. Good Signal-to-Noise ratio.

Cons: Short Cable lengths from speakers to sub box. Blue indicator light on cables remote can be a little annoying at night.

Overall Review: Be sure to think about where you put the sub box, because it has heatsink fins sticking out the back a good 2 inches.

Pros: Simple design. Small heat spreaders do the job and don't get in the way. Very good performance for the price.

Cons: None.
