ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 ZT-50402-10L 1GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Small, single 6-pin power, good looking

Cons: This thing runs really hot! I can get this thing into the 70s with the fan maxed out! The fan is also louder than all of the other fans in my case even at idle on 30% fan!

Other Thoughts: I put everything back at the factory defaults (including the core voltage) minus the memory and got much better temps out of it with very little loss in performance. The highest I have seen it get during games is the high 60's with about 50% fan with factory speed. It's not a bad card by any means, but there are much cooler and powerful options out there for not much more than this. I wish I waited a little longer and bought a 560 instead.

4 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 04/15/2012

This review is from: ASRock H61M-VS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Very small in size, supports 16gb RAM, UEFI, socket 775 coolers fit

Cons: No IDE headers, single x16 and x1 PCI slots, fan options are terrible, still has a LPT1 header for printers

Other Thoughts: The day I got this thing, I noticed there were no IDE headers for my multiple disk drives. That's not so bad and it's something that I should have looked for when shopping around, but never thought of it.
It still has a printer header but not IDE, that seems completely illogical to me.
There are 3 fan headers on the board. One 4-pin for the CPU, one 3-pin for a "power fan", and another 4-pin for the "channel 1 fan". The CPU header is in a great, easy to access place. The "power fan" header is right against the backside of any GPU you have and the CPU. And as for the "channel 1 fan", if you have a lot of SATA drives, the cables will run right over the top of the header. In my small case, it's a joke.
On the upside, my old 92mm socket 775 cooler fits with no problems at all and the boot menu is greatly useful thanks to UEFI.
Overall, this board is a decent budget board, but its not a good choice if you have older components or lots of cables to hook up. -1 egg for fan headers.

Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623G620 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, powerful

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a budget build and when I ran the system for the first time, I was absolutely blown away. The speed and agility this processor has for the price is fantastic and I can recommend this for any budget build! Not only does this chip run cool all the time, but it packs a punch! Along with a good GPU, I can play ME3 at max settings with no problems whatsoever. Five eggs all the way!
