SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (100314-3L )
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: AMD build
ASUS M4A78T-E board
OCZ 700 watt PSU

Runs quiet, smooth and slick. Newer games run highest settings perfectly. Be sure to update drivers with Device Manager as CDs usually never have the most up-to-date software.

It doesn't look as large as the Flex model, but it still is rather long. Make sure to have sufficient wiring and organized cords in your case or it might get a bit cramped.

I use two PCI-E cords provided with my PSU, so I don't know how well the card's power cords work.

I purchased a Flex model of this card a year ago that failed on me, so I would suggest this card over the Flex model for price reasons.

Cons: -Battlefield Bad Company 2 gives me trouble (possibly a CPU issue)
-It doesn't generate too much heat, but I would suggest extra cooling if you plan to really stress the card (i.e. running high settings newest games for more than a few hours each session)

Other Thoughts: Super Monday Night Combat time!

AMD Athlon II X4 645 Propus Quad-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 95W ADX645WFGMBOX Desktop Processor

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Happyfun time.

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Excellent air flow from top, front and back - Don't have to worry much about heat.
*Spacious for large hardware
*Colors and see-through casing (pretty....)

Cons: *Not much to do with wiring behind the case to make it look clean. Most wiring has to be up front because of this. (-1 egg)
*Front audio/mic jacks are not only loose jacks, but they are useless with some boards. Any board containing onboard sound or graphics will not recognize the jacks.
*Useless design holes in the front top of the case are dust-collectors, if you are a neat freak.
*Instructions for first-time and novice builders are unclear. If this is your first build, ask for some assistance.

Other Thoughts: I reccomend this case for building a modern computer. It will serve you well.
