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.
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
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.
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!
