AMD A8-3850 Llano Quad-Core 2.9 GHz Socket FM1 100W AD3850WNGXBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D

Pros: Everything went together easily in my existing Antex case. Restarted Linux after new components and was up and running fairly quickly on ASUS motherboard. Graphics was recognized fairly easily.

Cons: Don't have all drivers for Ubuntu Linux (though not a show stopper for me)

Other Thoughts: My old system made some crackling sounds and smoke started pouring out. After replacing power supply and no luck, decided to save some bucks and ditch having to replace my graphics card and possibly motherboard (one of them was frying power supplies). Went together super sweet with no problems. Works so much faster than old system with lower power consumption.

2 out of 5 eggs Bugs and No Patches 04/25/2008

This review is from: Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion Game of the Year Edition PlayStation 3

Pros: It plays great for a while. I was completely enthralled.I was totally engrossed before it became unplayable.

Cons: The 2 characters I have played ended up at some save point as vampires which you cannot get out of because of buggy software. A while after that, the game ends up stuck with no way to continue. Basically it locks up when loading a saved character. There appear to be no plans to offer an update to fix these well known problems. Get the pc version and skip the ps3 where you cannot get patches. I've had over a 100 crashes (hard lockups) when playing. Turning autosave off helps, but then you just delay the inevitable.

D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme Desktop Adapter IEEE 802.11g/n PCI Express

4 out of 5 eggs Works with Ubuntu 7.10/AMD 64bit 11/09/2007

This review is from: D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme Desktop Adapter IEEE 802.11g/n PCI Express

Pros: The madwifi drivers work under Ubuntu Linux 7.10 (gutsy) in 64 bit land. You need to get source from the head of their revision control and build it yourself to make the card work.

Cons: No out-of-the-box linux support from D-LINK It took me a really long time to find the correct incantation to make it work under ubuntu linux.

Other Thoughts: I was in a bit of a panic wondering if I would need to ditch this item because I couldn't get it to work with ubuntu 64bit linux. I am up and running with this card at a pretty decent speed. Finally happy that I bought it.
