5 out of 5 eggs I can't believe my eyes 09/04/2008

This review is from: Hanns-G Hi-221DPB Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1,000:1

Pros: Crystal clear as far as the quality. I di not have to adjust any settings for color, brightness or contrast. Upgraded from a 17 inch LCD monitor and of course the difference is like night and day. I have more room to move applications around and the antive resolution brings out some detail in my high end games (i.e. Crysis, FFOW, FEAR) that my 8800GT handles really well. Response time is alot better than my 17 inch LCD.

Cons: None really. Wish Newegg would stop dropping the price as makes me wish I had waited longer to buy it. LOL. Speakers are what they are for 1Watt and expecting quality sound would be a mistake. What's great is that the speakers are built into the back of the monitor so they are not noticeable. However, I am still keeping this at a 5 because I never intended to use the speakers knowing how bad the quality was going to be in the first place before I bought the monitor.

5 out of 5 eggs Do u Have freezing problems 08/03/2008

This review is from: EVGA 132-CK-NF79-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Here is a note for those of you having freezing problems with OCZ memory and Probably others with 780i and 790i boards. Check your Memory voltages (if not in the green on the bios) then it is probably over what it should be mine was just a little over and now I have been stable for over a month. Just because the package says it can run at a certain voltage rate does not mean your system will stay stable. For example, the memory package says 2.3v Lower it to 2.1v (in the green zone), but not so far that your underpowering the memory. This has helped in the past and stablized the board during OS install. Seems like something alot of people are missing when installing. Just my 2 cents or half a cent depending on your view.

Cons: just informational

EVGA 256-P2-N749-LR GeForce 8500GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Here is some information on how to SLI two of these if you are so inclined to do so. I got the information from EVGA knowledge base.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: SLI with these cards will be done entirely through the PCI-Express slot on the motherboard and does not require an SLI Bridge to connect the cards. Install one card and the latest drivers, restarting to finalize the installation. Once the first card is setup, you can shut down and add the second card. If not prompted to enable SLI upon entering Windows, go to your Nvidia Control Panel under 3d settings to enable it.
Some versions may have the SLI bridge connection which is required for proper operation
