PowerColor Go! Green Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 AX5450 1GBK3-SHEV4 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card (UEFI Ready)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works well out of box. Literally 0 effort (using Linux, new Gigabyte mobo) besides attaching it to mobo. Good play back of video.

Cons: Struggles with games, rendering.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a placeholder for a new machine while I took some time to study the graphics card market, and I'm really happy with it. I have a KDE desktop that looks stunning in 1080p HD, able to stream videos etc. just fine.

This is a great card for general purpose office work/surfing/et al. If you're a gamer or do heavy photo/video editing, you probably already know this isn't the video card for you.

ASUS PCE-N53 Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 300Mbps downlink+300Mbps uplink Wireless Data Rates
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Signal wasn't bad when I got it working.

Cons: Simply is a pain the bottom to get compiled and working on Linux. No, support for 2.6 is not a typo. And no, despite only being "supported" by Ubuntu and Fedora, there aren't ppa's or repos to get comipled binaries, and no, the source doesn't compile cleanly.

I did get it compiled and running, and then returned it the next day because I didn't want to worry about losing Internet when I update software or reinstall OS.

Other Thoughts: TP-Link has been a lot better to me.
