Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

2 out of 5 eggs Drive died just out of Newegg warranty 09/24/2011

This review is from: Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Plenty of storage. Quiet.

Cons: Drive died just after Newegg 30 day warranty. Trying the WD RMA process. Will see if they can manage to send the replacement quickly.

Other Thoughts: I've had good luck with drives. Most that have died have done so long out of warranty.

Hitachi GST 0A38016 1TB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Can't beat the price. I got it when it was $80-10% discount (almost covered CA tax)

Cons: Adds quite a bit of white noise to my new system.

Other Thoughts: I had just built my own system and was quite happy with how quiet it was relative to my old system. I had to look at the system to make sure it was on (pretty blue lights...ooohhh). Anyway, after adding this drive, I have no problem telling when its on. It's not rumbling, just loud enough to put the total system over my volume threshold.

MSI GeForce GTX 260 DirectX 10 N260GTX-T2D896-OCv2 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I got this card to build my new system around. My old card was a nvidia 5700 ultra and this thing just slaps it silly!

I got far cry 2 when I got the board and haven't benchmarked it, but I've got it at 1680x1050 on ultra high with a phenom 2 x3 2.6GHz cpu and it is silky smooth!

Not planning to oc the board more than it already is since I don't think I'll notice much difference with the current crop of games.

Looking forward to playing f.e.a.r. as more than a slide show!

Cons: Here's hoping the rebate comes through without a hitch!

Other Thoughts: Put this into the following system:
NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL-S 600W
Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
AMD Phenom II X3 710 (will probably upgrade later)
