Great Card In A Big Box

ASUS Radeon HD 3650 512MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card AH3650 SILENT/HTDI/512M
ASUS Radeon HD 3650 512MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card AH3650 SILENT/HTDI/512M

Pros: Fast card! Replaced an FX 5900. Works well with DirectX 9.0c (XP) you will be able to max out older games, but the card really excels as a budget DirectX 10 (Vista) solution. No fan (very slick and quiet). Huge box for a GPU.

Cons: Drivers are a little tricky. AMD/ATI drivers didn't reconized the card, so I grabbed the most recent from ASUS's website. Open the zip file with WINRNR clicked on the setup file, and all is good.

Overall Review: Just a great card for the money, but a novice may have trouble installing it.

Great Budget Option High Performance at Max TDP

Intel Core i5-11400F - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070811400F
Intel Core i5-11400F - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070811400F

Pros: Very fast for gaming and internet. It will run at a much higher TDP ( thermal design power or point) with an after market cooler. It will give you a big performance uplift running at a higher TDP. Great value.

Cons: Hotter than the center of the sun at full performance. I'm able to cook marshmallows now with my exhaust fan...

Overall Review: All kidding aside...this is a great value for the amount of performance given... It runs hot when given what she needs so make sure she has lots of ventilation. Great stuff

Good Solid Drive

SAMSUNG 980 M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.4 V-NAND MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V8V1T0B/AM

Pros: Value Speed

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Performs at stated specs, pleased with purchase.

So far so good!

Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB 5400 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive
Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB 5400 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive

Pros: I was skeptical at first but the drive performs well. I replaced a WD 7200 black 750GB / 16 MB cache with this drive after cloning with Apricorn’s: Notebook Drive Upgrade Kit. I must say that loading times are much faster after 5-10 reboots and I haven’t lost any loading time on games or apps. 8 GB of NAND and 64 MB of cache does the trick with a 5400rpm drive… go figure! I will keep my WD black as is, just in case of future drive failure, only time will tell…but so far it’s been great.

Cons: None so far but only time will tell.

Overall Review: Good value to performance, I would purchase this over a 7200 RPM drive.

Greatest Bang For The Buck

ASUS EAH4870 DK/HTDI/1GD5 Radeon HD 4870 Dark Knight 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card
ASUS EAH4870 DK/HTDI/1GD5 Radeon HD 4870 Dark Knight 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card

Pros: Crysis Max ED, Far Cry 2, Grid, etc. all perform very well with no lag (1600x900 res.) @ very high (max) settings. The value of this card is - THE BEST OUT THERE!

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: This card runs hot which means the Dark Knight cooling solution is working, and very efficient. I have 3 fans, one blowing directly on the card and two exhausting air. Case temps stay low with this configuration. Card pulls in excess of 300 watt @ full load. Dual 6 pin power connectors. Have fun with it!

Great Ram, Da Bomb

Pros: Great sticks. Perfect ram for my Asus P5QL/EPU. I love the little red eyes.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Ram installs as 800 so you will have to change it to 1066 in the BIOS. This is stated in the documentation that come with this ram.
