ECS GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) DirectX 11 NGT440-512QI-F1 512MB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have to say I'm impressed with this little guy. I'm able to play BF3 at medium-low settings without a hiccup, SC2 runs on medium-ish settings without a problem, and I'm able to play a host of other games at the medium level, like Civ5 and TW: Shogun 2.

Cons: Has a slight problem with windows media player and video files for some reason. Using VLC it works perfectly; but in WMP, if you try to skip around in the video, it takes a while to load it up. I just find that annoying, not enough to knock an egg off over, however.

Other Thoughts: Not bad at all for $80.

Pros: It's RAM, it works.

Cons: Doesn't get hot enough to cook your bacon.

Athena Power AP-MPS3ATX40 400W Micro PS3 / ATX12V  SLI Ready CrossFire Ready   DELL, HP Upgrades/Replacement Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It powers my machine.

Cons: It surges all the time. When I first built my computer over 2 years ago, it would randomly shut off 2 or 3 times a day due to power surges. After a week or so, though, it became a lot more stable. I figured this was just because I bought a cheap motherboard, but since replacing it with a new motherboard last week, I'm still continuing to experience issues with the power supply. Every time I turn my computer on my motherboard tells me it detected surges. And every once in a while, while using the computer, it'll get choppy and slow and eventually shut down. As far as I can tell, this is because it's failing to properly juice my system. But I'm not an expert, just my opinion after changing everything but the power supply and still having the same issues.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it. Seriously. Just spend a few extra minutes looking for something else.
