RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black ATX-612WEBP 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case With 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The case itself is superb, it's far and above the best case I've ever owned.

Cons: The power supply shipped with this case is downright terrible. Mine burned out within about 5 months, and the replacement lasted 3 months. Raidmax was very good about replacing the dead power supply FYI.

Other Thoughts: I'd get this case again, but I'd take the slightly cheaper option and skip the power supply. Get a good one to put in it.

ViewSonic FuHzion X Series VX2265wm Black 22
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Once you go 120hz, you'll never go back. 04/02/2010

This review is from: ViewSonic FuHzion X Series VX2265wm Black 22" 3ms 120Hz 3D Ready Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1

Pros: If you're a gamer, and your current setup is limited to 60 FPS by the monitor, but is capable of much higher FPS, you will FULLY appreciate this monitor.

The difference is astounding.

Brilliantly bright, vivid colors, perfect for many applications, but you will fully get the most out of it with gaming.

Cons: I have NO cons to post.

Other Thoughts: I actually waited until my 21" CRT died before purchasing an LCD, because I was accustomed to high FPS, and didn't want to downgrade my FPS to 60 with the older style LCDs.

This monitor rocks.

I have not tried any of the advertised 3D uses, and cannot comment on the 3D capabilities.

ECS IC780M-A2 (V1.0A) AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Simple, Cost effective, Easy to use 03/26/2010

This review is from: ECS IC780M-A2 (V1.0A) AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Simple, cost effective, and easy to use motherboard.

The bios is straight-forward, not difficult to set up at all. Installation was easy.

Simple overclocking was easy and effective.

The manual is easy to read and use.

Cons: As a previous reviewer stated, with large video cards, two of your sata ports are covered up completely. Not an issue for a basic installation, but could be for certain setups.

There was no "screw baggie" but luckily most cases have plenty when you get them.

Very few cables included.

No firewire, no second lan port, no 5.1 audio. It's a basic motherboard, but that's the point, and it's cheap, so this isn't really a con unless you want all that extra crud.

I don't.

Other Thoughts: If you like "features" and "goodies" look elsewhere, but for the average person, this will do everything you need, and do it well.

For the price, I like it, thus the 5 stars.

Sure there are better boards, but they're also more money.
