Palit GeForce GT 240 DirectX 10.1 NE5T2400FHD51 512MB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Powerful card for the price. Fan is adjustable speed and automatically slows down when idle. Low power consumption/large fan quiet at idle. No PCI-E power means it will run on many OEM power supplies.

Cons: Fan gets noisy under load, as expected. Takes up 2 slots but the hot air is not exhausted out of the back of the case. The **almost got it**, extendign hte fan shroud to the back of the case (like they do with high end cards) would have been better.

Other Thoughts: Excellent value if MIR pulls through.

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cool/Quiet, just as fast as my 7200RPM drive. Getting 80MB transfer speeds between them.

Cons: Firmware a PITA to update, however it's worth doing since you're getting a nice drive for the $$$.

Other Thoughts: This the the drive to get right now. Anything cheaper is either smaller or has several bad reviews. Advanced format drive may cause an issue for some users.

ASUS Radeon HD 5550 DirectX 11 EAH5550/G/DI/1GD3(LP) 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good CPU offloading for many file types. Runs cool. Great buy on Black Friday Special IF the rebate comes through. ASUS has always been good to me on rebates, so I'll take my chances...

Cons: ATI catalyst defaults to 15% underscan, the control is difficult to find.

Other Thoughts: Would have rather seen the card as a "full height" with a larger fan instead of a low profile with a smaller fan.
