COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This case is great. It has great airflow, cable management, quiet with the stock fans, I love almost everything about it. Also, its built like a tank. Quite heavy too

Cons: My videocard BARELY fits, and bigger cards definitely won't without modification. (I have a 3870 X2). The case gets scratched easily(laying it down to put things into, scratched up the side of mine a little), transporting it aroudn scratched the handle up a little.
I couldn't get the front audio to work, maybe thats just something I was doing wrong though. Oh well, the case is still great.

Other Thoughts: If I upgrade to a 5870 or something, or if cards get longer, I'm going to need to modify the hard drive cage.

VisionTek Radeon HD 3870 X2 DirectX 10.1 900209 1GB (512MB x 2) 512-bit (256-bit x 2) GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great card. Had amazing performance in catalyst 8.1, and now with 8.3 it is almost doubled :P Crysis runs about 22FPS AVG in the benchmark @ very high 1280x1024, but it goes around 30fps during game. I can play every game out on max settings, and never miss a beat :D

Cons: BIG. and I mean HUGE! This thing is so big its blocking two of my sata ports, and i had to move one of my hard drives JUST to fit it, and it STILL barely fits. A few games arent really optimized for crossfire either, but ATi can surely help with that.Also, has a few problems with 64bit games..

Other Thoughts: Buy this card if you got the money. My specs:
AMD Phenom 9500, This Card, 4GB Kingston DDR2 667, two 80 gb hard drives, and vista ultimate 64bit.

COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-460-PMSR-A3 460W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: there are none- after sending 2 back both were doa (tested with power supply tester) could have bought a better power supply and saved time and money.

Cons: read above statement.

Other Thoughts: will not buy another cooler master power supply.
