Wonderful Processor, Worth every Penny

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ - Athlon 64 X2 Windsor Dual-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM2 125W Processor - ADX6400CZBOX
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ - Athlon 64 X2 Windsor Dual-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM2 125W Processor - ADX6400CZBOX

Pros: Excellent product. Super fast, runs cool, come with excellent HSF, easy install. Processor is a BEAST! It chews up anything I throw at it. Copy DVD's to my IDE hard drive (in it's self very slow), in about 10 mins. With a good hard drive it would only take 5-7. This thing will play games with only one core at 75% other at 20%. This processor will last you well long into the future, if you don't want to spend quite so much for a quad-core. This thing isn't nearly as hot as other's have said. The highest I've experinced during long game sessions is 52C. Usually runs at 32c with stock HSF.

Cons: A little power hungry, can get a bit warm during long gaming sessions (5+hours). But this thing cools down fast after words.

Overall Review: Works great, well worth the money.

Great Ram!

Pros: Excellent ram. Running at deafult speeds, had no need to overclock it. Looks good, fits in with build. Not an eyesore.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Theres a was a Mail in rebate when I bought it. I liked the ram so much I didn't feel the need to be bothered with a mail-in rebate. Now thats how good this ram is, it didn't bother me one bit to pay more. OCZ, if you read this give yourself props!

Works Well, besides one problem

Rosewill - HDMI Switch box 3-in-1 w/ Remote (RME-002)

Pros: Excellent product. Works great, with good quality. Small efficient, remote works.

Cons: Wouldn't let me switch between my computer, Upconvert DVD, and HD cable box. My computer wouldn't show up after initial switch to another device.

Overall Review: It wasn't really made for switching computer video signals, so I cant really complain about that. I use this switch on a DVI monitor, with an HDMI to DVI cable. Works excellent, except the computer issue. Just use VGA for my computer, which looks almost the same anyways. Now theres an empty spot for a PS3 or 360! =D

Incredible Monitor

Pros: Excellent quality, clarity and color. There's no reason to not buy this monitor. So big, yet so thin. The quality of this product is top notch! The picture clarity is bar none, this will look as good as expensive super high contrast ratio monitors. Upgraded from an HP 17" LCD, theres just so much more space. No stuck or dead pixels to report! Excellent shipping as well, came fast and in good order.

Cons: Little bit of back light bleed noticeable when the screen is black. This is more of a nit-pick, considering the price.

Overall Review: Well worth the purchase price.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: Works great with my AMD Athlon X2 6400+ at stock speeds (3.2ghz). No need to overclock with 4gb of ram.
