GIGABYTE GA-H77N-WIFI LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Thick, matte PCB
Intel WiFi
Dual LAN

Cons: Would be better if they move chipset and wifi down and cpusocket up...CM GeminII M4 blocks PCI-E.

Other Thoughts: 16GB Corsair XMS3
CM GeminII M4
Mushkin 120GB SSD
Xeon E3 1245 V2

DIYPC V3Plus-B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small
Fully Aluminum with sufficiently soft feel
Rubber padded HDD mounts
Side and bottom panels come off
Vents at bottom of case as well
ATX size PSU mount

Cons: Integrated standoffs seem flimsy
No fan or even a spot to put a reasonably sized fan
Aluminum got slightly warped during build, not major.
Power button feels cheap
Could use removable motherboard tray/panel

Other Thoughts: Will not fit PSU longer than OCZ StealthXStream

Plug PSU and front panel connectors before installing PSU

Fits CM GeminII M4, no taller or else the fan would be intaking no air due to the PSU blocking airflow.

Xeon E3 1245V2
Gigabyte GA H77N WiFi
OCZ 700W
CM GeminII M4
Mushkin Chronos 120GB
16GB Corsair XMS3

XFX Radeon HD 4770 DirectX 10.1 HD-477A-YDFC 512MB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This graphics card uses a dual slot cooler that vents the hot air out the back of your case, unlike the other cooler. The exhaust is barely hot, since it is 40nm. XFX has really good warranty as well. Runs Crysis alright. Better than 4830 and 9800GT and nearly as good as a 4850/9800GTX

Cons: Pics? As of now they are on the XFX 4890 Page for some odd reason, search: XFX HD-489A-ZDDC in the newegg search box

Other Thoughts: System:
AMD Ph.II 550BE @ 3.6GHZ
DFI 790FX DDR3 mobo
3GB DDR3 1333
Corsair VX-450
2XSeagate 7200.12 250GB
Lite-On BD-R
Usind it for media centre

This would be freaky fast if they put the full 800SP, put 2GB of DDR5 and increased the memory bus to 512 bit.

I can run crysis on 1920X1200 on High with playable frames (about 25-ish?) In comparison, my 4890 can run it on Very High with 2XAA ~ 23FPS on my C2D system.
