PC Power & Cooling Fatal1ty Gaming Series 550 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ550FTY)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great PSU and great price after the rebate.
The mesh around all the cords makes it look very organized.
Runs much quieter than my older PSU.
The red LEDs are cool too!

Cons: Nothing..

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4850 DirectX 10.1 GV-R485OC-1GH 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Runs all my games on Ultra. I just installed StarCraft2 and it's absolutely beautiful and smooth. Great card for the price. Very pleasantly surprised.

Cons: Very long so it may be cramped when installing it.

Other Thoughts: Card is very much worth the $$. Being able to run all of today's games on maxed out settings for alittle over $100 is great!

Pros: Great computer. Booted up right out of the box w/ no issues. Fairly quiet. Would be a great setup if you not a hardcore gamer. I love the look of the case and it's nice and roomy inside for upgrades.

Cons: -480W PSU it comes is worthless. If you want any upgrades (like a decent vid card) you better start w/ this or it'll blow.
-Radeon HD 5450 is not even considered a gaming card.. it can play the bare minimum. Can only play WoW on mid settings and that game is ancient in today's standards
-Bottom mounted PSU

Other Thoughts: I was hoping this computer would pack more of a punch. I went ahead and upgraded to a OCZ 550W PSU and threw in a Radeon HD 4850 so I can play SC2 and a few other games on high settings. As it comes it's hardly considered a "gaming" machine.

So.. long story short.. had to throw in another $180 to play decent games.
