Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast compared to my previous WD scorpio 5400 RPM drive. Installed latest ubuntu, noticeable speed increase.

Cons: Is warmer, louder, and more power hungry compared to previous drive. That's to be expected. Extra power draw is minimal. Old drive was .5 watts, this one uses about 1, which is insignificant considering my CPU uses about 35.

Other Thoughts: Using Read-Only Benchmark from Ubuntu's disk utility:

Min Read Rate:26.9mb/s
Max Read Rate:105mb/s
Average: 76.8mb/s
Average Access Time: 17.5ms

done on a Gateway MX6959

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky PC Game

5 out of 5 eggs This game does work on windows 7 11/09/2009

This review is from: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky PC Game

Pros: The game works fine on windows 7. The latest patch disables its copy protection entirely. If you go Tages website, and download the latest version of Tages, the unpatched stalker will work fine, activation, disk protection and all.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: don't be an idiot. check for updates.

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Provides consistent, stable power. Black sleeves help airflow. Extra wires were easily stashed in the bottom of my Antec 900. The cabling and sleeves make it easy to perform cable management.

Comes with a velvet bag to put it in for all those times you carry around your power supply outside your case.

Cons: It was kind of hard to get the 20+4 pin connector in, because the +4 part wouldn't line up quite right.

Other Thoughts: After upgrading from a 500 watt unit, I was able to push my components significantly further.
