GREAT PRICE FOR AN AWESOME CARD!

BFG Tech GeForce 7950GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support OC Edition Video Card BFGR7950512GTOCE

Pros: This card is a beast! Plus I had to return my BFG 7900 GT OC 256mb from a computer store after I saw this card on NewEgg that cost less. Great price for a good card. Want to buy a second one very soon!

Cons: None yet but I'm a hardcare gamer and the stock fan seems pretty weak. Have to see how the fan holds up after long hours of gaming before I buy a second one for SLI.

Overall Review: Great card to get if your want an awesome card but on a budget.

Nice and cool but kinda....

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

Pros: Keeps my case 50 Degrees when all the fans are on low and 46 degress when all my fans are in medium. The 2 BFG 7950 GT seem to create a lot of heat because of useless stock fan. Otherwise, my case would be a lot cooler. Awesome Case if your a gamer.

Cons: 1. No Dust filter, I have wooden floors and I have to keep my computer room clean as well as the computer case. So if you don't keep you floors clean at all times, then the dust resting on the surface of the floor will get sucked into the computer case. I put my computer case on the floor so it won't fall because I live in california and we tend to have earthquakes. Lots of Dust flows through the bottom front fan. 2. The extra fan slot behind the middle cage kind of makes it diificult to place the wiring around the Graphic cards. 3. Had a pain installing the Floppy disk. Yes, I still use floppy disk but it's for school.

Overall Review: If you have pets, you can see their fur gather on the bottom fan cage, kinda gross. On low fan settings, this case is quiet but on medium the fan case is pretty loud (haven't tried high settings yet). Maybe it's loud to me because I used to have the Antec P180, which is a very quiet case and easy to install. I only switch to this case because I didn't want to deal with water cooling. Otherwise the noise and the dust.... the case is good enough since it keeps my computer cool.

I Got 2 for SLI

Pros: It's very reliable and I can run Command and Conquer 3, Medieval 2, BF2, Supreme Commander on full settings with just one card. It's soo good, that I bought a second one this week for excess power that I don't really need yet.

Cons: It runs pretty hot but I had no problems yet. I was kinda worried about the heat so I waited to get a second card until I found a new computer case.

Overall Review: Since I bought a new Computer Case (Antec Nine Hundred) I decided to buy a second one 3 months after I bought my first one and I'm not worried about the heat anymore. You don't need a new computer case like I did but you might need an after market cooler if you plan on having this card for a long time.
