Logitech V470 Blue 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Notebook Mouse for Bluetooth
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks Good, Compact

Cons: Input Lag makes it unusable

Other Thoughts: I bought this to use with a HTPC which is also used for gaming. The input lag on this mouse even when sitting a few feet from the dongle made it frustrating to use in Windows, and unusable in games. I would recommend against his mouse even for basic internet use. If other BT mice are this bad, I'm going back to regular RF - which has been adequate for games like WoW at least.

ECS GeForce 9600 GT DirectX 10 N9600GT-512MX-P 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Accelero Passive cooling does an excellent job and is 100% silent. This card is a great value in mid-range cards. It's not the fastest thing out there, but it's fairly cheap, doesn't produce too much heat, and can play modern games at 1920x1200. I have played a few hours of Bioshock on this card and my GPU temp only reached 56^C in a case with poor airflow.

Cons: The huge passive heatsink on this card is too large to fit in some PC cases. It fit in my Lian-Li, but not in my girlfriends Compaq Presario OEM computer. The heatsink would also prevent an SLI bridge from being used, although the soft copper could probably be easily modified.

Other Thoughts: About equal performance to 8800 series cards. However, one will still perform 8600GTs in SLI. SLI (and Crossfire) only make sense for those willing to buy two high end cards while they are still cutting edge.

MSI GeForce 9500 GT DirectX 10 N9500GT MD512Z 512MB 128-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Passive cooling is completely silent. This card does not use a lot of power or generate much heat. At idle the clock speed is reduced to 200mhz for improved power savings. HDCP compliant HDMI output on-board. This is the fastest GPU currently available which does not require an external PCIe connector, making it a great choice for those with OEM PCs or older power supplies.

Cons: 9600GT has much better performance than this card.

Other Thoughts: This card uses GDDR2, while some other 9500GT cards are clocked higher and use GDD3. However, if I wanted better performance, I'd probably pony up for the 9600GT.
