MSI Gaming N780 TF 3GD5/OC G-SYNC Support  GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I had a gtx 580 sli lightning...overclocked significantly.. In the various FutureMark tests with the 780 stock it's equal to ever so slightly lower...with a couple of tests ever so slightly higher... But it games it's night and day..max frame rate is about the same...average frame rate is up but minimum umbrage rate is night and's up more than 10 to 15 frames...this makes playing games far better over the 580 sli setup.... I am also very pleased with heat...I am not over 56 degrees during playing....every single game I see a drastic improvement I playability over the coh 2i see the biggest improvement... Bf4 ultra was a stretch with the sli 580s but now no issues with every map...coh 2 on 580s I had mixed settings but with the 780 now everything maxed out.... I am very very happy with the purchase!!

Cons: None....

nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 5000B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Case is an excellent case that fits standard size mATX and Power supply. Sufficient cooling for a HTPC. Fits my ATI 5770 - would NOT mostly likely fit any larger video cards. Looks great. Fits in well with all my other components.

Cons: Door sticks on DVD ROM... tabs need minor filing.
Low cost construction... No issue as long as your moving the thing around.

Microsoft Windows Home Server 32 Bit 1 Pack (Power pack 1)

5 out of 5 eggs Great product - dont take advice from Non-techies 12/18/2009

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Home Server 32 Bit 1 Pack (Power pack 1)

Pros: Excellent backup capabilities - I have successfully restored my Windows XP, Vista Machines, Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit machines. I love the fact it wakes up my machines and auto performs the backups in the middle of the night.
Excellent storage capabilities - VERY VERY easy to setup - install and forget.. I love the replication and drive pooling.
Excellent streaming capabilities - I stream all my HD Movies and SD Movies, including music and pictures to my xbox, PS3 and HTPC
Great Internet Access Capabilities - Has excellent capabilities of allowing users to come in from the internet and access content stored on the machine - I love the fact using UPnP it auto configured my routers firewall to allow those ports.
Interface is amazing and love the plug-ins - If your affraid of Windows Server 2008 then you will love this... You do not need to be an expert to use the product. There is a ton of information on the internet for advanced configs.

Cons: Storage does not have a parity concept and only uses duplication for redundancy. This approach though works, unfortunately doubles the amount of storage used if you want to ensure your files stored on the server are always protected in the event of a drive failure.

Other Thoughts: Previous poster most likely has no technical ability or the drive to do a simple google search. Backups require the drivers for each machine to be properly setup on the restore disk. This is the ONLY issue I have encountered and was fixed after a simple google search.
