TOP OF THE LINE (until 2 days ago)

Western Digital Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This is as fast as it gets. RaptorX Has been known for it's superb speed (~88MB/sec) for quite some time despite being only SATA 1.5. I love how it looks inside too since it has a nice window on top ;)

Cons: Maxes out at 150GB, it is very loud, it runs hot but I doubt it minds it.

Overall Review: The new VelociRaptor series just got announced couple of days ago. These drives go up to 300GB, include SATA 3.0, AND run faster than RaptorX at about ~120+ MB/sec ... GET the new one!!! There's no need to get RaptorX any more...

Great looking piece of ****

Silver GateWatch with LCD display

Pros: This thing looks HOT... Everyone who comes in notices it. I love the way it looks and love having it even though it does not do it's job. (read cons)

Cons: Make sure you have 3pin connector fans in your case. In my Thermaltake Armor+ all fans are with Molex connectors (same used by ide hard drives), and therefore this device cannot do it's job by controlling them. I only have CPU fan connected - it does a good job there making the case nice and quiet. Also, the screws do not line up in my case it just hangs there since it is a tight fit.

Overall Review: Continuing cons: temperature reading on my unit are completely off. CPU shows 38.2 C while Mobo reports 56C, and VGA Card reports 71 while this baby shows 45 ... But hey - it looks cool and it has a cute dog wagging it's tail :) Has Red, Blue and Purple color.

Kicks some serious ars

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 240GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE240G
OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 240GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE240G

Pros: This is THE drive to get ... I have it in my MacBook Pro and it is SOOO FAST you won't believe it... Love it love it love it.

Cons: NONE!!!

Overall Review: Vertex 3 just came out - check that out since it is of course faster, but I would feel confortable trusting OCZ with ANY drive... This baby ROCKS!

Great monitor, but be careful: IT'S GLOSSY

Pros: It's great as everyone else says

Cons: It's a glossy screen - so if you are getting it for games and what not - good for you, but if you are getting it for anything else - it may be a pain.

Only 2 of these are better than one!

BFG Tech GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB (512MB per GPU) GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card BFGE981024GX2E
BFG Tech GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB (512MB per GPU) GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card BFGE981024GX2E

Pros: This is one helluva card! It looks hot, runs hot (~70C), works hard and plays hard as well. CSS @ 1650x1200 = 220FPS, Crysis @ recommended settings (All set on High, no AA) = 40FPS (blah!) - but still looks very good.

Cons: I can't wait for the price to drop and get another one for a quad sli. Also, Drivers SUCK! :(

Overall Review: Register it at BFG right away and you will be entitled for a 100 days upgrade! If anything better comes out within the time period, you send this one back and only pay the difference in price ;) BFG is good!

Good but loud, or is it just me?

ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ900 900 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified PipeRock type modular cable with colorful LED Active PFC Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply
ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ900 900 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified PipeRock type modular cable with colorful LED Active PFC Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply

Pros: Great power supply. Runs my 9800GX2, Raptor, E8400 and all that jazz without a hiccup. It also looks REALLY nice and comes with a bunch of cool goodies. Lights on it are of the hook!

Cons: I think it's fan is the loudest one in my case. I stopped all of the other ones, even the CPU fan just for the moment, and I could clearly hear it's fan... Not a too big of a deal since my RaptorX drive takes over as soon as something else is going on ;)

Overall Review: I wish the cables were with LED's all the way ;) and I wish the 1100W was not so much more expensive.
