Love this gpu

ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT PHANTOM GAMING D Graphics Card 16GB GDDR6, AMD RDNA2 (RX6900XT PGD 16GO)

Pros: Runs cool, RGB goodness

Cons: Gigantic in size is limits how it can be mounted and in what case.

Overall Review: Currently gaming in 1080p and it goes without saying but Ill say anyway, I can run any game at ultra preset and get 144 fps. The card is so large that I had to move my radiator from front mount to top mount in my 4000D airflow case. I did swap my setup into a Lian Li Air Mini and the Temps are good while gaming around 60c in vertical mount. It does ray tracing but at a significant cost to performance. But maybe with RSR it can get better.

Easy to build in and versatile.

Pros: -Easy to build in -Great cooling -Lots of ways to configure

Cons: The feet need to be taller

Overall Review: I upgraded my gpu to an Asrock 6900xt and could only run my aio rad top mounted with this gpu in my 4000D airflow. So I wanted a case with the ability to side mount the aio and airflow from the bottom but not a gigantic case either. So I found this Air Mini plus the fact I could keep my ATX PSU instead of buying a SFX PSU. So now my pc runs cooler with the gpu mounted vertically and aio side mounted for my overclocked 10850k. The case is easy to work in and makes cable management easy. The materials and accessories feel of high quality. This was my first Lian Li case and I would highly recommend it!!

Great Memory!

Pros: This RAM is great! I went from 1 GB of RAM to these 2. I noticed a big difference in general PC use and my gaming.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Newegg shipped quick as usual.

Pros: Overall fast speed. Windows loads up in under 10 seconds. Games load significantly faster than before with PATA.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: This is my first SATA hard drive ever. I'm very pleased with it's performance so far. It's not loud at all and loads up anything quickly. 238 GB formatable, but that's to be expected with these larger drives. I didn't buy this through Newegg because I happen to find it on sale locally because they had just put them on the shelves. If not for that I would have jumped on this on Newegg.

Great card for the price!!

Pros: Runs BF2, FEAR, Scarface on medium settings with a AMD Athlon 64 3300 2.14 GHz. No noise at all. My Power supply fan is much more noisy. Easy install.

Cons: I'd like a better cooling setting on it, but I'm just overly cautious about that stuff.

Overall Review: I'm running it on 1440 x 900 resolution on a 19" LCD with excellent performance. Shipping was quick also with 2nd day air.

Great one

Pros: I have the 19" Samsung 931BW but I'd think they are pretty similar monitors. Mine has 2 ms response and 2000:1 contrast. It has a crystal clear picture, no dead cells (was bought from BB). Mine has MagicBright which lets you select from Game, Internet, Sports, Movie, and more picture qualities. Very nice feature. Also many picture settings to tweak in the menu, but I didn't need to mess with them. It was fine out of the box.

Cons: None.
