Worked Fine

HEC 6C28BBX585 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 585W Power Supply
HEC 6C28BBX585 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 585W Power Supply

Pros: Everything fit fine for my system with plenty of room to grow. Even my MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256EZ HD video card fits with no trouble. The power supply has worked fine and I have no complaints for the price. I used the stock case fan as an intake on the front and used a Thermaltake A2029 120mm on the back. Everything is quite although the power supply fans are audible.

Cons: -Power supply is cheap but works fine

Overall Review: -So it doesn't have LEDs or isn't shaped like an alien space ship, I don't care. It is a box to hold the components you should be spending the real money on.

Most Critical Review

Too Loud for Me

MSI GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC
MSI GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC

Pros: The card worked fine and the frame rate on the games I used was good.

Cons: The cooling fan was very loud. I could hear it in the other room with the door closed. I returned it for the version of this card that uses a heat sink and I've been happy.

Great Camera

Pros: Great little compact, image quality is much better than any other compact camera I've used. I liked it so much I got rid of my Nikon D60 as I didn't need to lug it around to take decent photos. High ISO and night shots are possible and the manual controls allow photos you couldn't get with a camera that you can fit in a packet comfortably. Aftermarket batteries are cheap and it just works. You do need to carry a spare for a whole day of taking pictures.

Cons: Faster focus would nice

Ahhhh... Quiet

MSI GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card NX8600GTS-T2D256EZ HD

Pros: I don't hear anything and I love it. I bought this to replace the fan-cooled version of this card as we couldn't stand the noise it made. This one has performed without any trouble with the two-monitor setup we use. One at 1680x1050 and one at 1280x1024 with no problems.

Cons: None

Best for the size/price point

Pros: Works great with no problems or dead pixels.

Cons: When watching a movie, it is not as dark as the 19" Viewsonic we have next to it when a black screen is shown.
