EVGA GeForce GTX 650 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 01G-P4-2650-KR 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This card replaced my passive Graphic Card (Radeon HD 6670). Right away I noticed that the software Nvidia uses is a lot smoother and more user friendly than the ATI Catalyst.

This card compared to the 6670, is obviously a little bit more powerful. So games ran smoother on higher settings.

Cons: The fan is loud. Annoyingly louder than any of the case fans. I might go back to my passive card because of the noise.

It requires an additional power supply. I didn't notice this when I bought it. Luckily, I PSU had a few extra cables. So I am able to use the card.

Other Thoughts: I might return it for a refund due to the fan noise. Purchased this at a different site due for tax evasion.

ASUS MS226H Glossy Piano-Black / White 21.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very nice looking monitor
* Price
* Very Thin
* Anti-Glare matte finish

Cons: Colors are a little off. Compared to my laptop, visting the same site, the colors on my laptop are more vibrant and vivid. I tried to adjust the colors but nothing helps. Even manually adjusting the colors on the ATI Catalyst control panel.

Basically, some blue looks purple. And the text aren't as crisp.

Also the stand is annoying. Monitor sits at an angle and I have to stuck a book under it to get a better angle.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very cool and quiet drive.
* Using this as my main OS drive and it's 5 degrees cooler than my WD Green used for storage. Interesting.
* A lot quieter than my previous drive.

Cons: Windows seem to boot slower with this drive. But this could be because I cloned the HD and didn't do a clean install.

Other Thoughts: Samsung makes a great product. Never even knew Samsung made HD. Glad I came to this by accident.
