EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) DirectX 11 012-P3-1570-AR 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Best card ever, upgraded from a old 8800 GS and man there is a huge difference. Can max out all games such as Metro 2033, Crysis, BFBC2, Black Ops, and probably new games coming out in the future. The EVGA precision tool makes EVGA and this card and extra plus because you have total control without much of a hassle (Compared to Rivtuner (newegg wont let me spell it out)) Card doesn't run that loud, but can get very hot so beware if you are interested in overclocking this beast (which I don't believe is necessary for now unless you want high 3D Mark scores)

Cons: 10.5 in length! its a monster inside and out. Had to move my split my hard drives and move them to slot 1 and slot 3, the card filled in almost half of the second slot.... The new HD version is smaller, 9 to be exact, but having this huge card with a see through side panel makes it look intimidating. Not too worried about the heat, fan can auto adjust, but you set it to max or a certain percentage if you want to be safe and cool. ALSO if you wanted to have this running on a TV with HDMI, remember this card doesn't have a audio cable to connect to the Motherboard or a connector at all. Just invest in a good 7.1 audio card.

Other Thoughts: Overall a very epic card. Don't think I will be needing another for a while. Good price for a very good card. HOWEVER, I bought my card directly from EVGA, and with it, I got a lower price from them than Newegg, plus I believe mine also came with a lifetime warranty compared to neweggs 2 or 3 months. If you do buy this great card, you are going to be a very happy person!

Pros: Fast Shipping, got it with 25$ Rebate, best deal for this much power. I am blown away at how silent it is, put my ear against it to see if I could hear it. Didn't hear a thing. Yes there is a fan, just real big but quiet! Tested it for DOA just in case and it performed amazingly. Cables are extremely long! More than enough for my build.

Cons: No cons particularly with the PSU, performs very well, but the rebate center makes you choose 8 weeks for 25$ or 5-7 days for 23$, but hey, people need to make their money.

Other Thoughts: Ill keep an update on this a while from now to see how it performs. This is for my new build, but used it to check for DOA on my old Core two duo Dell with 8800GS. Newegg does not give a receipt for anything... Just a packaging list, which will suffice for the rebate.

Western Digital Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: AWESOME!!! added this hard drive for all my games, because my 250 one was almost filled to the limit. I saw this on sale for 50$ and was blown away because it was also black edition. Runs very smooth, can barely hear it. Accessing files are so fast on it (could be cause I formatted it to 64 KB allocation) I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Cons: None about this hard drive, because it was a brae drive, it came with nothing but the drive.

Other Thoughts: My Computer had a virus before I got this so i was going to format anyway, but i learned from this that raid erases all data off both drive.... and raid doesn't use all the space for both. If this drive doesn't come up (I only know this for vista) put in the install disk and click new when you are about to install the OS. then you can just turn it off and it will show up, but your gonna have to format it (which takes at least 3 hours).
