Nippon Labs HDB-252 Dual 2.5

4 out of 5 eggs Good value 02/14/2014

This review is from: Nippon Labs HDB-252 Dual 2.5" HDD/SS Plastic Bracket

Pros: Great way to pack two drives into one bay on a budget. Easy to install and all required screws are included.

Cons: Power and SATA connectors are difficult to attach due to the drives being stacked so close together. Possibly connectors could crack or separate under the pressure.

MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectX 11 N660TI PE 2GD5/OC 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Awesome performance, best 660Ti variant you can buy. MSI Afterburner makes it easy to boost performance even more.
I do 3D gaming on my projector and this card definitely has enough horsepower for it, provided that you don't run all the settings MAX'd out on most games.

Cons: Kind of a bummer that you still have to pay extra $$$ for nVidia's 3D Play software if you want to run it on your 3D TV. This should be included as part of the driver, IMHO!

Other Thoughts: My last five graphics cards were ATI (going back to 2002), but thought I'd give NVidia a try this time around. So far, so good!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card  ( 11201-00-20G)

Pros: Excellent value, delivers solid frame rates in most games w/o having to sacrifice graphics detail. Low power consumption.

Cons: Very unstable. I bought this card for my wife and she will encounter either "VPU Recovery" warnings or random reboots every few hours. It seems to happen in waves, where the first one triggers several more that follow within minutes. I have changed the mobo, power supply, and case but nothing helps.

Other Thoughts: I had previously purchased the HSI equivalent and it had the same issues so I'm beginning to suspect it is something with the 7770 design, or possibly even the specific production run since they were purchased around the same time.
