Great Mobo

XFX MB-N780-ISH9 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI Intel Motherboard 3-Way SLI Support
XFX MB-N780-ISH9 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI Intel Motherboard 3-Way SLI Support

Pros: plenty of room for upgrades.i could run 2 9800gtx's, but not 3,and i still could put some stuff in my pci slots.great manual,though i only needed it to see where i plug in the reset,power,hdd LED,and the power button LED.other than that i have found nothing wrong with it.its very durable (funny story behind that one).

Cons: Well its not really the motherboards fault but xp's.when i installed it with the audio driver the sound did not work,so i had to uninstall something audio bus under system devices in the device manager.its windows xp's default audio device which apparently conflicts with realtek's driver.just so you guys know there are NO SPACERS OR SCREWS INCLUDED.luckily i had my own but am still 2 spacers short.

Overall Review: when i first put it into my case,which is an Xion II XON-103,i got a little irritated cus the a screw on the 9800gtx was hitting a metal bar on my case so i had to cut it off only to put it in.i almost bought another case cus for the longest tine i thought it was my motherboard that was off. my specs now are: this motherboard XFX 9800GTX 4GB of RAM Intel's Q6600 Quad-Core Processor 320GB HDD 550 Watt PSU (and the 9800gtx recomends a 450 watt,and my processor requires an additional 95 watts)

Apple likes to screw things up with updates

Apple iPod touch (2nd Gen) 3.5" Black 8GB MP3 / MP4 Player MB528LL/A
Apple iPod touch (2nd Gen) 3.5" Black 8GB MP3 / MP4 Player MB528LL/A

Pros: The ipod itself deserves 5 stars,it has alot of cool features like web browsing,accessing itunes,ect.

Cons: heres the bad stuff that is seriously making me want to sell or throw away my ipod touch.apple updates have cost me numerous installations and uninstallations of itunes due to their updates.if the new itunes comes out,the ipod touch doesn't like to show up in itunes.so then you unistall the newer itunes and put on the older one,and alot of your music that you put on there won't play due to apple changing their music format that the ipod reads.

Overall Review: like i said,good product.apple sucks with itunes and their updates.oh and if you update to the ipods 2.2 update,have another computer ready and hopefully you didn't have anything important on there.

Awsome game

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning PC Game
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning PC Game

Pros: Just the feel of the game,it feels alot better than WoW.PvP is worth it now.you gain alot of experience taking keeps and battlefield objectives as of the new patch.easier to make money compared to WoW,so you don't get spammed anymore from those gold farmers (plus they get banned).all the classes are balanced if you know how to play them right,unlike in WoW.

Cons: I gave it 4 stars though it deserves 5 because a game thats supposed to be based on teamwork and doesn't include free trials with the game sucks.my friends want to try it but don't want to spend $50 and find its not to their liking.so i get kinda lonely out there by myself.yes i do go out in the warbands to attack/defend the keeps,but i would like to play with my friends. a little probem is it lags a little in the aldorf with everything set to high.it goes from 60FPS (have it locked there) to 25-30FPS.its no problem for me its just a little noticeable when i first get there. other than that there are no problems that i could find.

Overall Review: wish they would make a free trial.everyone should try it if they like MMO's or want to give MMO's a try.WoW's not a bad game,it just gets boring and repetive after a while.

Excellent CPU But....

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 105W Processor - BX80562Q6600
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 105W Processor - BX80562Q6600

Pros: Very fast,went from using a AMD 4800+ Dual-Core Processor and wanted to try Intel's Quad-Cores, since I have heard alot of good reviews on them.

Cons: Fan is a bit load,but it doesn't bother me.Runs a little hot.I don't know if this is normal for this CPU, but when I play the Witcher and other games for a while it jumps to about 61-63C,and it idles at 50C when using programs like firefox,ect.Seems a little hot.But like I said I don't know if its just these cards or just the fan to it.

Overall Review: XFX nForce 780i,3-way SLI Motherboard 512MB XFX 9800GTX (with another one on its way soon) This Processor 4GB RAM 800MHz (2 x 2GB) 320GB HDD (500GB one on its way) XP (Vista will be bought soon) Logitech 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers (i see no need for a sound card right now) XION II Mid-Tower Case (yes this case is HUGE!I can fit another 9800GTX and the other HDD and still have room for a third 9800GTX)
