BIOSTAR A870U3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Price (cheap)
* Stability (very solid)
* 2 PCI Express slots
* USB 3.0

Cons: * Second PCI Express slot should have been positioned lower to allow airflow between cards
* If you have a second PCI Express card that is dual slot, it can cover some of the SATA ports (but plenty still available)
* Not many USB ports on back (2 x 2.0, 2 x 3.0)

Other Thoughts: I have two of these and four of the non-USB 3.0 version. They have been running 24/7 since I got them. Never a hiccup. Biostar hasn't provided a new BIOS, which makes sense given how stable they are.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6950 DirectX 11 GV-R695OC-1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Quiet
* Runs very cool if airflow in case is good (<60C at 100% load and 60% fan speed)
* Solid build
* Among the six I bought none have had any issues

Cons: * Extra shaders appear laser cut so even if you are able to make the BIOS writable, you won't be able to unlock the extra shaders
* Doesn't include DVI-VGA dongle. I don't need it often, but it's nice to have, so this is just them being cheap

Other Thoughts: With factory overclock at 870MHz and the good cooling, this should be on your shortlist when considering a 6950.

SONY MDR-V6 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Studio Monitor Series Headphone
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs The only headphones you'll ever need 07/01/2011

This review is from: SONY MDR-V6 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Studio Monitor Series Headphone

Pros: Bought my first pair in the late 1980s, and my current pair in the late 90's. Work just as well today as they did when they bought them!

* Great sound - the standard headphone in many recording studios
* Robust and long-lasting (going on 13 years now)
* Comfortable to wear for hours every day
* Fold up to make them easy to pack in a bag/suitcase

Cons: No real cons. But, if you wear them a lot, then over the years the ear pads will start to get worn out. Happily, they are replaceable for about $7. Just Google the Sony part number 211566803 and you'll find it. With replacement pads the headphones are like brand-new again.

Other Thoughts: These awesome headphones should last you a very long time!
