Most Favorable Review

Excellent value mobo

ASRock B460M-HDV LGA 1200 Intel B460 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock B460M-HDV LGA 1200 Intel B460 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: If you need a cheap socket 1200 mobo look no further. This accepted a i5 10400 and performing swimmingly.

Cons: Only two DIMM slots.

Overall Review: As long as the price remains reasonable.

Most Critical Review

terrible

ENCORE ENLGA-1320 Ethernet Card 10/100/1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
ENCORE ENLGA-1320 Ethernet Card 10/100/1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: Easy to install in the slot?

Cons: Slowest card I've ever owend. I don't know what's going on with this card but it tranfers at 1/2Mbps. It's horrifically slow. I've tried it in Linux with the built in realtek kernel drivers and in XP with the newest drivers from the Realtek site. I'm going to have to exchange this card for something else. Wow it's bad.

Great Cooler

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)

Pros: Quiet and good cooling. It's the only thing that's ever gotten my Phenom II to 4GHz without exceeding the 62C limit.

Cons: Cooling wasn't a DRASTIC increase for a high end air cooler but is perfect for MicroATX cases like mine that can't handle huge coolers.

Overall Review: I picked up mine locally for $40. For the price it couldn't be beat.

best analog headphones by far

Razer Carcharias Over Ear PC Gaming Headset
Razer Carcharias Over Ear PC Gaming Headset

Pros: Excellent analog audio. I've pair these with an X-Fi Ti and now and X-Fi Ti HD and it's by far the best. I bought Corsair HS1A's thinking they were going to be better with 50mm drivers. NOPE!

Cons: printing on the inline control used poor quality inks and the stuff rubbed off easy but everything still works

Overall Review: Wish it had more bass! But great headset all around for sure.

great card for the money

POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 1GBD5-PPG Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great for the price. I bought this card for 160 and it was a good price then. i see one now for 130. Play metro2033 30fps+ Can't beat it.

Cons: A *little* more power would have been nice but hey again it's all about bang for the buck.

awesome game

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PC Game
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PC Game

Pros: GREAT single player, GREAT multiplayer. This game is amazing looking. On on older machine with an 8800GTS 640 I still got 45fps minimum. As of this writing it's 51 free ship. BOOK IT. :)

Cons: Multiplayer hacking was pretty out of hand for a while. Steam and Activision have worked on multiple patches to counter it. Also steam is fully banning people's accounts if their at caught which is awesome.

Overall Review: Still a great game despite the cons. Book it!
