EVGA GeForce GTS 250 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 01G-P3-1155-TR
EVGA GeForce GTS 250 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 01G-P3-1155-TR

Pros: To the one who wrote that this card stutters when playing AOE 3, I think you need to check your system...For those who like the older strategy games, this card is great...AOE 3 at max settings (including 1920x1080) gets no lower than 40 fps in water battles with 10 ships being blown to pieces (software provided will give you everything you need, including: FRAPS, EVGA Precision...everything except their dvd decoder)

Cons: even though the card pushes air out the back, it will raise you case temps by about 5 deg C when it's running at max, so be prepared if you're worried about that

Great case + service, bad UPS

Pros: Unfortunately UPS damaged the case on its way, but Newegg being the incredible company it is, didn't hassle me and has already sent me the pre-paid stamp for its return As far as the case goes, its sturdy and more well built than some of the others I own (including an Antec Solo and Antec Three Hundred). For the price, you can't find a more well built and roomy case than this one

Cons: There isn't any damping material on the inside, and the panels are kinda thin (not to mention the huge vent on the side in the pictures) so if you have cheap, loud components it could be a problem (if you're ocd)

Overall Review: Don't let the fact that the panels are thin turn you away. Unless you're willing to pay 130+ you're not gonna find anything different (or if you do, the rest of it isn't up to par). If the vibrations and sound really bother you, there's always AcoustiPack

First time w/ Acer

Acer H233Hbmid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full HD 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 (ACM) Built in Speakers

Pros: This monitor lives up to the specs...solid build quality as expected from a great company

Cons: As everyone else has mentioned, the speakers suck and the casing attracts dust

Overall Review: If you're using a monitor that's somewhere around 19" or 20" you should def make the upgrade because you won't regret it
