Pros: Great card, operates very cool under stock clocks. Overclocking is easy using the built in AMD overclocking tool. Plays almost all games at highest settings at avg 55fps.

Cons: Only two DSPs so for more than 2 monitors you need an active adapter

5 out of 5 eggs Great USB 3.0 Hub 06/29/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RHB-620 (RIUH-11002) 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub

Pros: Fast Hub that comes with a power adapter, note that the power adapter does not supply 4 USB 3.0 ports worth of power but instead uses the power adapter and some of tho host computers 3.0 port power. The hub allows you to use 2.0 and 3.0 devices simultaneously (at least my experience) and when using Crystal Disk mark read/write speeds only drop about 7 MBps. When running 4 USB 3.0 hard drive on it and doing Crystal Disk Mark on all of them simultaneously they drop about another 5 MBps, this is very acceptable as its using one USB 3.0 port to work with 4 devices. The USB cable for the Hub plugs into the middle of the back and has a very bright blue light to indicate power.

Cons: The hub is so lightweight that it easily shifts and it doesn't have rubber feet. This can be fixed by fastening it down or not touching it a lot.

Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Lots of space 465GB after format. Works great in an external hard drive dock. No problems with it at all, works great as a backup drive as well as fro virtual CD's and OS's.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Many people think that the cache is a significant factor in hard drvies, its not really i have an 80GB with 32MB cache that runs at teh same speed and there is little difference. The speed is a combination of cache (small factor), speed (RPM), and transfer rate (PATA/SATA/etc). Although this hard drive is not a SATA 6.0GB/s, people who comment about it being the same speed as a SATA 3.0GB/s are incorrect. The hard drive will operate at the fastest speed possible, people who say that are most likely using SATA 6.0GB/s on a SATA 3.0GB/s, so the hard drive is limited to the slower speed hence there will be little improvement. If they want to notice the full speed they need to get a motherboard with a SATA 6.0GB/s connection
