GREAT COMPACT CAMERA

FUJIFILM FinePix V10 Silver & Gray 5.1 MP 3.4X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
FUJIFILM FinePix V10 Silver & Gray 5.1 MP 3.4X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: It small but don't let that fool you,it takes great pictures even without the flash ,I took some in my room that has a 200watt light bulb and the picture turned out great ,even at ISO 800 there was no noise in it .It has all the features you could want on a compact camera .It has a large 3 inch display.

Cons: It could have came with a larger Flash memory stick instead of 16mb.You can not run it in full manual mode.but it takes great pictures anyway.

Overall Review: If you are looking for a small compact camera ,that takes great pictures even in low light ,then this is the one to get ,It even has four games build in.

UPdate Review

Thermaltake toughpower W0105RU 700 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Thermaltake toughpower W0105RU 700 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: It has all the connections you need ,and the power when working right,Looks great I like the big fan because it is slilent

Cons: When first installed everthing worked great ,I was getting 11.92v on the 12v rail which was fine and worked great for about a month,then I got to noticeing my 12v rail was going down ,it went to 11.75v,which it still worked fine about a week later it was showing 11.5v and I was getting random reboots ,I checked it with a different motherboard and still the same low voltage on the 12v rail and I put it back in my main system and now it was down to 11.4v ,I checked it with a Volt-Ohm meter and sure enough it was only showing 11.45v,so I had to RMA it back to newegg ,which they were very fast to replace it and sent me a new one.

Overall Review: I still think these are well made Power Suplies,there always a dud in anything you buy and as always Newegg took care of me.

NOT THAT GREAT ANY MORE

EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 012-P3-1470-RX
EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 012-P3-1470-RX

Pros: They run any game ,fast ,great for SLIing. On Evga's site you can buy these for $159

Cons: Now it hard to say buy one unless you need one For SLI ,but even then you can buy a new one with three fans for $30 more and a after market cooler would cost more then that.

Overall Review: I have three GTX470's but mine are msi but they are made the same way .With my motherboard ,when I was useing three They were sandwich right next to each other ,so I had to run the fan at 100% and it is loud with three of them running at a 100%,but itv would run anything you threw at it .They ran around 50c at idle and near 100c with some games.I got tired of that besides two is plenty .I have a great cooling case ,it came with a plstic window on it but it did not have a fan hold ,so I was able to put a 140mm fan right where I needed it over my GTX 470's ,plus the case has 5 140mm fans in it already.But I took the middle card out .But now it idles at 37c and even running it at 750/1500/1800 any more I have to add more voltage ,with the fan at 75% it hardly ever goes past 75c.That one 140mm fan blowing around 100cmf right on top of my GTX 470's makes all the difference in the world.

GREAT PRICE

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Quiet fast and reliable.I have had one for over a year and no problems and when they put these on sale for $49 I just could not resist .But I had the same problem trying to raid them I could combine them in windows to make 2Tb but I did'nt have the speed Of a Raid ,I could raid them with my SATAII ports but it not as quick as my main ones ,I will need to do a Clean install to get them working the way I want.

Cons: None 1 Tb for just $49 unbelievable.

Overall Review: These are great to get a pair and Raid then,they are not as fast as my two W.D Black 640Gb in raid ,but they come pretty close.I have three W.D Black 640Gb in raid-0 and get over 200mb/s but even with these two I get 140mb/sThese don't look as sturdy as my W.D but as long as you are not going to be rough with them ,They hold up well.Still a good buy at $59 and mine even came with a set of screws.So if you want a fast drive and don't want to spend a lot of money then these are great.It Hard to beat newegg at price and service.

BEST DRIVE FOR THR PRICE

LG Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 10X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Super Multi WH12LS30 LightScribe Support
LG Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 10X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Super Multi WH12LS30 LightScribe Support

Pros: I had the 10x version ,but this drive seems quicker,My old drive had 2mb of cache and this one has 4mb ,maybe that why it seems quicker.It is very quiet and bruns everthing I throw in it.The spec's are very good on this drive and you can not beat the price for the quality.

Cons: Have not found any

Overall Review: I know when you buy OEM most of the time you just get the bare drive.BUT the only thing this one was missing was a retail box..It came with PowerDVD93D,Power2Go,and serval other things ,It had a manual,software,Power plug,SATA cable and even came with a set of screws.It hard to believe these drives are so cheap I paid $140 for my LG 10x 2mb cache less then a year ago.I love that the disk can hold 25gigs of data or 50gigs with a dual layer.That one of the main reasons I bought it because when I save files I don't have to have 5 DVD's ,I can just use one BD-R.I look at other drives and the only reason to pay more would be for the software.But like I said this one came with everthing but a retail box.But you can not count on it haveing everthing ,but it looks like most people are getting software with this one ,I know there are some that did'nt get so lucky ,but that the chance you take when you buy OEM.Newegg is the best place to shop and always quick service.

BEST CARD FOR THE PRICE

MSI GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N470GTX-M2D12-B
MSI GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N470GTX-M2D12-B

Pros: Fast ,overclocks great with MIS Afterburner most will do 800/3900 and this puts it as fast as a GTX 480.The Fan is not loud as had been said unless you run the fan at 100%,70% and below is not loud ,I can't hear it over my case fans.It has Phys-x and cuda and can play 3D surround.The GTX 470 is the best card as for as bang for the bulk.Free game and shipping.

Cons: The only con is that when running SLI they should have slanted the fan so it could get more air.Like my 280's were.

Overall Review: If you are looking for a card that will play any game ,plus overclocks to GTX 480 performance then this it it.Plus you get a free game and free shipping .Just a three year warranty ,but if you are like me you would never keep a card for three years in your main system.But if you want a fast card and even better in SLI then this is a great buy.
