Good card

EVGA GeForce 7950GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N636-AR
EVGA GeForce 7950GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N636-AR

Pros: Very solid performer. I mainly play BF2 and BF2142 and get around 90 fps at the highest settings. Doesn't need a ton of power like the 8800's and can play just about every game maxed out.

Cons: Nvidia needs to support this card better. Not a whole lot of drivers that support the 7950 gt.

Overall Review: The drivers from Nvidia website are lousy. They give below average fps and IQ ( Image quality ) isn't good. The 86.63 drivers from Extreme-G ( Tweaks R Us.com ) really make this card fly.

Smokin!!!

Pros: Insane performance at a great price. I am running two of these and they tear up everything I can throw at them, all games at the highest setting without a hickup. The temps are good and they overclock well.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Intel E8400@ 4.05 Zalman 9700 Evga 780I A1 2 Evga 280 SC Corsair Dominator 1066 4gb WD Raptor X 150gb Pc Power & Cooling 750w Thermaltake Armour Vantage Score 21600

Pros: Fastest single card out there. There isn't a game out that this card can't handle. Runs cool and overclocks like a champ.

Cons: NONE!!

Overall Review: ATI/AMD might as well throw in the towel, because the gt200 series just delivered a knockout blow!

Beast!

PC Power and Cooling S75QB 750 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7

Pros: It a PC Power & Cooling, what else needs to be said. Tons of reliable power and connectors. I like the sleeves on the cables which helps with wire management. Outperforms alot of the 1 kilowatt power supplies out there.

Cons: Some of the cables are short. Almost cut it short a few times in my Thermaltake Armour case.

Overall Review: Simply the best 750w PS out there hands down!

LOUD!

Pros: Tons of room and expansion. Looks great and easy to mod if you want to use different fans and such. Overall, solid build quality and looks sexy as hell!!

Cons: Weighs a freakin ton and the quick connect adapters are cheap. Owners manual is lacking, you need to install the mylar strips to prevent motherboard grounding. Had to download the manual at thermaltakes website to see where to put the mylar strips.
