Most Favorable Review

Good card for the money

EVGA GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card 01G-P3-1431-KR
EVGA GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card 01G-P3-1431-KR

Pros: Video card was easy to install into the computer. Options to overclock the card are easy to follow as well. Runs really quiet compared to other video cards that I have purchased in the past. Colors are good and vibrant and the graphics look great for the games that I have loaded up and playing.

Cons: Really haven't found anything as of this review.

Overall Review: If you are looking for a good mid-line video card this is one that you should give some thought too.

Okay for what it for....

EVERCOOL EC-MC-BL Aluminum Heatsinks only

Pros: Cheap and somewhat easy to work with. Helps with the memory cooling

Cons: Instructions could have been better...took a few times reading the instruction (w/ pictures) to figure out what set of stickies to use on the memory and the cooling vents.

Overall Review: Works good for the price...wish the instructions where better.

Good keyboard

Pros: keyboard was exactly as described and was easy to install and get working. Total swap time was 10 minutes....this includes taking out the damaged keyboard and placing the new one in.

Cons: Ribbon cable...just have to make sure that you have this installed correctly or any slight movement will unseat the ribbon.

Can't go wrong for the price

Kingston 2GB DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model KVR1333D3S8N9/2G

Pros: Exact same memory modules that came with the computer that was purchased from another vendor. Can't beat the price that was being shown here on NewEgg.com and shipping was quick and fast. Installation was easy and quick, the new computer picked up the additional memory and ran with it.

Cons: Nothing at the time of this review.

Overall Review: Easy and quick to install, the price easily beat out other sites that offered the exact same memory.

Good for the price

PNY GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card VCG84DMS5SXPB
PNY GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card VCG84DMS5SXPB

Pros: Easy to pull the back mounting plate to switch the video card from standard to the low profile is really handy. Easy to install and instructions are easy to follow.

Cons: Software that comes with the video card is for windows 64-bit or 32-bit and you need to know which version of windows you are running or you will get error messages.

Overall Review: There is a free movie redemption code on the inside of the cover box from PNY. The selections that they have are some of the older movies. PNY gives you 1 credit to digital download one full movie from their site. Nice little bonus that I didn't know that I got when ordered this product. Also, don't know how many of this promotion they are including with this video card but it was a nice bonus.

Good low range card

PNY GeForce 8400 GS 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Video Card VCG84R2SXEB

Pros: Great card for the money. The low profile brackets are a huge plus.

Cons: The CD that came with the card didn't work as planned. Ended up going to the PNY site to get the correct drivers

Overall Review: Card is good for the older games and also for those that are on a budget that can't afford the higher end cards for games.
