EVGA 01G-P3-N988-TR GeForce 9800 GT HDMI 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Definitely impressed with what is delivered for $69.99. Runs L4D2 on full settings flawlessly. Software install was easy. Drivers were updated and the card was quickly functional in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

Cons: I was amazed at how big this card is. I had to re-route my DVD audio and one of my fan cables, but that's not really the card's fault.

MSI GeForce 7900GS DirectX 9 NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Over CLock Edition Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Runs quiet, plays most games on high settings.

Cons: Died after about 4.5 years of use.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card in June 2007 and it burned-out in January of this year; total longevity at 4.5 years. While I definitely feel that I got my money's-worth, I'm disappointed in the fact that I've had several video cards which lasted much longer than that.

RAIDMAX SAGITTA 2 ATX-928WO Black/ Orange 0.7mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Removable MB Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: As the title says, it looks great. With two 120mm fans, there is also plenty of airflow. LOTS of room in there. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.

Cons: Has SHARP edges...I lost a fair amount of blood due to this case.

I own another Raidmax product (Smilodon), and I was disappointed at how big of a step-down this one was from that. The tool-less drive mounts are tricky to open, and take more force than you might think. They're also on both sides, requiring the removal of BOTH side-panels to mount a CD/DVD-ROM drive.

There is only one PSU rail. Not a huge deal, but if someone were to unscrew your PSU from the back, it would fall down into the case.

The side-view panel doesn't fold-down, it comes-off with thumbscrews. Not a big deal, just inconvenient.

Other Thoughts: It's a good product for a stable hardware setup that (hopefully) you don't need to spend a lot of time under the hood on. I would have rated this 4 eggs, but I'm deducting one additional for sustained blood-loss on multiple injuries (cuts on was REALLY deep).
