Pros: Has an on board nvidia graphics card. Can play graphically demanding games such as Half Life 2 and Portal 2. Bought it to take to work between answering phones, it suits my purpose perfectly.
Cons: I didn't expect it to be so large. Not really a con, but it barely fits into my backpack. Though the size does come in handy for when I play games. The graphics card isn't actually attached to the monitor, according GeForce experience, which is a program to configure how the computer processes the graphics. From my interpretation of the program, the card only stands as the physx processor, while the integrated video processor does all of the actual graphics. Granted it does take the stress off of the CPU, but I think that the performance would be significantly better if the monitor was actually wired to the card.
Overall Review: I only had a problem with shipping. I paid for 2 day shipping, but it took 4 days for the package to get to me. Doesn't merit any loss of rating for the product, but I feel I should mention it.
Pros: THE PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 16GB of high end gaming memory for 100...I thought it was a mistake.
Cons: None whatsoever
Overall Review: It is corsair, best memory out there. I never buy anything else.
Pros: TONS of room, EXCELLENT cable management, the design is awesome, REMOVABLE DUST SCREENS ARE AMAZING.
Cons: The size of it isn't someone you can really tell in the pictures of the case. Not a huge deal, but when it arrived I couldn't believe it. There is also no dust screen on the top fan, which is too bad because the top fan is accessible with a removable cover.
Overall Review: If you decided to go with an extended ATX board, be warned that the cable management behind the motherboard tray so it is invisible is most likely impossible to accomplish, there are strategically placed holes in the case for the cables that are covered if you get a board that is larger than standard ATX size.
Pros: Plenty of space for all my programs. I only buy Western Digital drives, they are the best.
Overall Review: Bought it way back in 2007 when I built my first PC. Still running strong.
Pros: Fit into my Dell laptop.
Overall Review: Bought it to replace my 2gb RAM that came with my laptop. Works great
Pros: Very fast, does exactly what I need it to.
Overall Review: Bought it to put over 800Gb of music onto it. Searching for music is very fast, never takes more than 10 seconds to find everything I am looking for.
Pros: Modular, powerful, efficient
Overall Review: I bought this because I was going to be upgrading to more power-hungry parts in the future, which I am in the process of doing.
Pros: Plays all my Blu-Rays. It is inexpensive.
Cons: Not all programs support it.
Overall Review: I use ArcSoft Total Media Theater 5 for it, it works perfectly although the program can be tricky to work with at times.
Pros: They work good, they get dusty quick which is a good sign. There is a lot of air moving.
Cons: They don't have LEDs to match my other fans, they get dusty quick, no big deal though.
Overall Review: Bought 2 after one of my fans stopped working properly on my Antec 900. Bought an extra for the side panel. My video card is a few degrees cooler because of it.
Pros: It does what its supposed to do, its a DVD drive.
Price is awesome.
Overall Review: I bought this so that I didn't have to take out the CD for Battlefield 2 to run. Drives me crazy when I go to start up the game and it days the disc isn't in there, because it takes awhile for it to boot up again.
Pros: My case fits all 120 discs.
Cons: Only problem is that sometimes it is hard to get the CDs in when there is one on the other side of the page, this is to be expected, however.
Overall Review: At the moment I have the cast 80-90% full and it closes with space available for the rest of it.
Pros: Really fast, loads windows very, very fast, under 20 seconds.
Overall Review: After about 1 year and 3 or 4 months the motor in the drive started going bad. RMA'd the drive to Western Digital and got a brand new one for free.
If you don't want to reinstall windows, pick up a copy of Acronis True Image and clone the drive. Very easy and works great, I cannot tell that it is a new drive, you know, apart from the speed boost from a new drive.
Pros: Still runs like the day I bought it.
Cons: It is $38. When I bought it it was over $100 in May 2007.
Overall Review: If I had Vista 64 I would buy more, they may be cheap in price but they are not cheap in quality.
Pros: Super fast, loads everything I need in the blink of an eye.
Overall Review: Have had it since May of 2007, recently I have noticed a drastic performance decrease probably resulting from the motor on the drive going out. Good thing the warranties last for 5 years.
Pros: exhaust fan on the top, 2 intakes on the front, and inverted power supply on the bottom
Overall Review: its a great case, i have 2 hard drives and i put one in the middle of each fan so they stay very cool, the first fan from the top keeps my memory cool, and the power supply being inverted keeps the graphics card cool. I would defiantly buy it again.
Pros: it runs what i need it to run, cheap and fast, can overclock to 3.0Ghz+
Overall Review: to the people who are saying AMD is faster for the same price, think about why AMD is so cheap right now, its because Intel is putting out faster chips then they are
Pros: its a great game if your into the strategy type games
Overall Review: to zoom, you use the scrolling wheel on your mouse, if you dont have one then idk how
i like it cause of its basis on american history
