Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: This Drive has lasted me well over 7 years and still works pretty well, I would buy another to replace mine because of its age.

Cons: The speed starts to dwindle a bit after a long time uses.

Other Thoughts: I bought this 7 years ago to get more Hard Drive space, I needed it for steam games and backups for stuff I had. It has had a lot of use and abuse and still keeps ticking, its almost time for me to replace it, but for now it does what it was meant to do.

4 out of 5 eggs Card is dieing, and the 3 years is almost up and not sure I can live without a 3D card 06/11/2011

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 260 DirectX 10 GV-N26SO-896I 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Fastest Card I have ever seen before the 400 series came out.... however, I started having issues about 2 or 4 months after using this card, but I dismissed it as a simple power spike or failure. Was a fair price at teh time, I was in a hurry, needed somethign fast affordable, and this was it. Warrenty is almost up and not sure I will be able to get an RMA...

Cons: This Card worked fine untill 4 months after I had gotten it, since then its been down hill, benchmarks for 3Dmark06 went from 13k to 11k in 2 years time, I even formatted to see if it helped, and it didn't. The card is slowly dieing, and my warrenty is almost up. I can not live without some type of display for my computer, I have not back-up. I am needing this RMAed but I am doubting Gigabyte will do it.

Other Thoughts: Card now shuts my PC down after intense 3D Gaming for several Hours, mind you I have a 750 Watt Power supply with the bells and whsitles I bought it when I got this puppy. Now Its running below par, liek its sick and dieing. I air cleaned it, dusted it, and still runs poor. Went from 60 FPS to 30 FPS drops in most intense games. I am kinda worried about Gigabyte selling OC Hand Picked Cards, and not sure if I want to buy another or not, if they only last 2 n half years of purchase.
