ASUS ENGTX580/2DI/1536MD5 GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) Overclocked 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: driver issues so far.....seems like a very stable and reliable card.

Cons: none that I can think of other than it is kind of expensive.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this from 2 5770's in crossfire and I have noticed a huge performance boost. My 2 5770's gave me good fps but I was tired of driver issues and my minimum fps dropping too low in some instances. In my opinion minimum fps is one of the most important benchmarks!

XFX Radeon HD 5550 DirectX 11 HD-555X-ZNF2 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Plays 1080p fine

Cons: an absolute pain to get audio to come out of HDMI

Other Thoughts: After an hour I finally figured out how to get audio to come out of HDMI. Some people may not have to do this but this is what i had to do

1 go to control panel
2 next go to device manager
3 then click on sound, video and game controllers
4 double click on the unknown
5 click update driver
6 then click browse my computer
7 click on the let me pick ect
8 finally click the driver

It will say are you sure you want to do this and click yes and your done. I have a 5870 and it was plug and play but not this one.

ADATA 500 Series 2.5

4 out of 5 eggs Fast but firmware upgrades are a pain 06/18/2010

This review is from: ADATA 500 Series 2.5" 32GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AS592S-32GM-C

Pros: Fast but not quite as fast as other SSD. Gave me a 7.0 in windows experience.

Cons: The firmware updates are ridiculous! I had to format a usb flash drive to run DOS. Tried using a disk but it never worked. My friend had to help me and he thought it was ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: Once you get it updated it works great! It took us 3 hours to figure it out but now that we know how to do it buying another for raid is a strong possibility
