This review is from: ASUS M3A78 AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Never tried an AMD chipset before so I took the risk - stable so far. Audio works well. What more could you ask for?
Other Thoughts: When I bought it, the specs didn't mention having solid caps...but it has them. Added bonus!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Passive Cooling
* 512 Megs of Ram
* Plenty of graphics horsepower for most of today's games (and all of yesterday's)
Cons: Cooling fins were a little loose when I unboxed the item, but they're not coming off of the card - just flex a little. Haven't experienced any problems due to this, just something to note.
Other Thoughts: I'd buy the card again. No fan noise, great graphics power (Vista likes it plenty), low power requirements if you're looking to save some money on your energy bill.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acer AL1917WAbd Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1
Pros: Bought this monitor to hook up to DVI and Vista Premium. Picture quality is fantastic. Speakers are good enough for what they are. Good price.
Cons: If you use the DVI port and Vista, every time it checks to see whether you want to do something (and darkens the screen temporarily), the monitor will blank to black. Using VGA, this does not happen. The first monitor I received did this, and in a few days would no longer stay turned on - so I sent it back. The second monitor also has the DVI+Vista issue, but is staying on. **Note: VGA+Vista works fine. No screen blanking.
Other Thoughts: Simply put: If you want Vista and to use the DVI input, get another monitor. Otherwise, this one is fine.READ FULL REVIEW
