4GB's of memory BEWARE!

MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Awesome board. Does everything and more. Nice passive cooling.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Just an FYI: If you are having problems with 4GB of memory and Vista 64-bit running very slow, make sure you update your BIOS to the latest version. I had originally installed 2GB of memory with Vista and my Windows Index Score was 5.5, after installing another 2GB of memory it dropped to 1.5 and was performing very very slow. An update to the latest BIOS, perhaps it was even an unreleased BIOS, fixed it.

Highly Recommended! Buy it!

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: -Ingenious case design. -Screwless hard drive placement design. -Quality case covers, that go on and off with ease. -Superior cable-management design. -Plug-in-play bay for SATA drives on top.

Cons: -Not sure I like the one big fan on the top. -No fan on the front for hard drive cooling. -No 3.5 front bay on the front for adding a floppy or card reader, you will need to buy a 5.25" converter. -Not quite a "mid-size" case IMO; it is oh so slightly smaller than my full-size case that it replaced.

Overall Review: Highly recommended buy IMO. I wish a case like this had been around years ago.

This thing is worth every penny...

Cisco Small Business Wireless-G IP Camera with 2-Way Audio / Pan-Tilt-Zoom (WVC210)

Pros: This thing is great. It was pretty easy to install and for the price you are getting an awesome product chalk full of features. The software is very extensive. You can setup preset views, specify zones for where you would like to look for motion detection.

Cons: Don't even think for a second this thing will do you any good for capturing video at night. Even with two modest floodlights, the picture quality was dark and grainy when pointing through a window outside. Also, I still haven't found a way to keep the camera on a recording schedule without having the softwares console screen running. It should stay recording even when your not logged into the console, as long as you hit the start button and it's on it's recording schedule. Oh well... still playing with the settings. Another minor thing was that you cannot use SMTP to send notification emails because it does not send emails over SSL or TLS which is required by most popular email systems like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. Now I have to setup a stand-alone email system on my server to do the forwarding to the internet.

Overall Review: Wish I had more of them. Also, if your like me and were having a problem trying to set your WEP to an OpenSystem key (vs. a Pre-Shared key), the system by default has values in there that are greyed out. I had to play with the dropdown boxes and generate passcodes in order to be able to type anything in the Key#1-4 text boxes.

Beautiful

The perfect all in one printer!

EPSON Stylus CX9475Fax C11C696201WN Up to 32 ppm Black Print Speed Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
EPSON Stylus CX9475Fax C11C696201WN Up to 32 ppm Black Print Speed Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: This is definitely one of the best all in one printers you will find on the market in this price range. It is very affordable. When looking for my new all in one printer I decided that I wanted built-in fax and WiFi, so this printer fit the bill perfectly and didn't break my wallet. Configuration of the included wireless printer server was very quick and easy. Built-in card readers for just about every format. Easy to browse and print photos through the 2.5 inch LCD screen without every touching your PC.

Cons: You can only load 100 sheets of paper, so if your a paper pushing business you might want to consider another printer with a higher capacity. There is no direct to CD/DVD printing option which would have been a plus.

Overall Review: I looked long and hard to find the perfect all in one printer to suit my needs and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Awesome card...

Pros: Wow... this card rocks... I still can't believe how great the frame rates are in Oblivion. This card is definitely overclockable... I was able to push the card all the way to 628MHz/992MHz on the core/memory with no problems. This easily beats out all other GTS cards and can practically compete with GTX unclocked cards. Outside in Oblivion I'm getting an average of 40+fps will all the settings maxed out and on the first widescreen display mode. Inside it never drops below 60fps. This card rocks.

Cons: Card wouldn't fit into the slot. It went straight from the shipped box and into my mobo but the card wouldn't go in all the way into the slot. It turns out that I had to bend the silver tabs just a little bit to allow it to seat properly with my case/mobo combo.

Overall Review: I'm definitely considering buying another one and going SLI. Here's a great article on a review were they overclocked the card.
