Thermaltake SOPRANO VB1000BWS Black 0.8mm SECC Chassis, Plastic Front Door ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: SOLID! Heavy, rolled steal, no screws needed. Fans are quiet, lots of room, much bigger than most mid-ATX cases. It has a front fan filter. The USB and 1394 ports are on the top of the case, not the front. The PCI slots in the back are not punch outs, they can be put back in. THIS CASE DOES NOT HAVE LAME LEDS EVERWHERE, which when you grow up as a pc builder, you tend to stay away from that garbage.

Cons: Have fun putting the PSU in the case if you have the mobo in already. If you have an aftermarket heatsync for your proc, its almost inpossible. I scratched up my new 750 watt, trying to get it in, eventually i had to take the heatsync off of the proc to get it in. The USB/1394/headphone ports are a little cheap. It contradicts itself, everything else it very high quality except for this.

Other Thoughts: I really like this case and i reccommend this to anyone.

PC Power and Cooling S75QB 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Hasn't Died Yet, (Better Not for the price). Handles 2 9600gt's, 3 hdd's, and 2 burners.

Cons: the 5.5 powers are a little off, i know that its going to change, but its still a little more than i would like. (5.38)
When i put the PSU in the pc, the poder coating scratched off easily, but thats mostly cause it was a tight fit getting in.

Other Thoughts: Someone said that it does not have the right screw mounts. It does, it just has to be upside down. I put it in initially so that the words on the stickers were not upside down and it looked like the screw holes didn't line up. but when i flipped it, the screws linned up.

EVGA 512-P3-N862-AR GeForce 9600GT Superclocked 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: CHEAP, FAST, THIN, not power hog.

Cons: not as good as the 8800gt, but the gt is $240 so im not that mad.

Other Thoughts: I was testing company of heroes, with one card. I got an average of 59.9 fps, a high of 61fps, and a low of 7fps on the testwith everything on high or ultra except no AA. When I did the test with 2 cards, I got 60 as an average, 61 as a high and 27 as the lowest with the same settings. The I upped the texture detail to max and anti aliasing to 16x and I got the exact same FPS. The second card doesn’t push the fps up, just reinforces the one you have, making the speeds you’re getting possible at a higher setting. for around 300 you can perform like a gts but for 100 bucks less.
