Impressive look but

M-AUDIO Studiophile AV 20 20 Watts 2.0 Portable Desktop Speaker System
M-AUDIO Studiophile AV 20 20 Watts 2.0 Portable Desktop Speaker System

Pros: Very impressive looking, workmanship looks good But I expected a lot more then that out of these pair of speakers

Cons: The speakers looks kind of fools you, when I got them they look really sturdy And well built, but sound wise it’s a far cry from what I call a good set of speakers Considering that the price would justify a high quality sound, But I’m disappointed from the total sound quality, hardly any bass Overall I don’t think the price of those speakers is anywhere close to reality, They perform like $30 pair of speakers. Mind you that I do have creative SB X FI So you can’t really blame it on the sound card

Overall Review: not highly recommended

Super great motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD3H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD3H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I never buy any other motherboards aside from gigabyte. You would be surprised how well this motherboard performs. This motherboard has all the same features as the more expensive gigabyte motherboards But, this one is exceptionally great on all ends , including great audio, video is more then great, unless you are gaming fanatic you can just add a graphic card, and your all set to go, 1 thing I found out that motherboards that have the AMD chipset perform better with ATI cards, although I myself like Nvidia cards better, I have built more then 400 builds since 1996, I can testify that after many years and trying different brands of motherboards, Gigabyte is a number 1 winner

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: It took different manufacturers with the combination of the AMD chipset to perfect it, But the new line of gigabyte 700 series to come up with a perfect solution to all needs. This motherboard will do the trick for you no matter how demanding you are, You have the ability upgrade this system in any way you wish to, weather it’s a graphic card or sound card, but this motherboard will do the trick even for the most demanding computer enthusiasts ,right now I’m running the system just the way it came out of the box, WORKS PERFECT, don’t look anywhere else, if your using AM3 CPU update the bios to F3, and you all set to go.I in general don’t overclock. But if you like OC you have all you need to do so, what can I say PERFECT MOBO. Don’t look anywhere else. Gigabyte is the most stable well made full featured boards around,

DOA

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional 70SB088600002 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional 70SB088600002 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card

Pros: none

Cons: I think creative makes good sound cards, no question about it, but this 1 was defective, i think that Creative 70SB088000004 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express 1x ,is a far better deal then this card

Overall Review: I was totally disappointed with this card, however I do recommend the Creative 70SB088000004 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express 1x

EggCelent card

Creative 70SB088000004 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express 1x Interface PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium

Pros: Performance wise this card is more the what most people would demand out of a sound card, I had originally bought the Omega striker 7.1,( total disappointment) This card regardless of what you see on reviews will blow the striker away no comparison, creative wins on this round You have every single gadget you can possibly think of and then some. It will take you some time to know all the functions in it, As far as sound quality this is a step up from the audigy 2ZS..( and I do have a lot of respect got the audigy 2SZ, very good card as well, But to get the full benefits out of this card you will need windows Vista which runs on directX 10, and so dose windows 7.. that’s when you will notice the huge difference. Windows XP dose not support DirectX 10, and you’ll drop to directX 9c. Which will take away from the full ability of this card Highly recommended

Cons: The only problem, is the driver set that comes along with the card, Newegg is aware of this issue, that the driver CD isn’t working right on any operating system, when you order this card put a notation for newegg, they are aware of the CD driver issue, they will give you a new 1, Otherwise you’ll need to use the CD that you have, Then you will press or creative update it will detect the card and install all the new drivers and applications,, it seems like the CD that comes with it, is the wrong 1 for some odd reason,,, If you don’t get the new CD it will have to install everything twice, once with CD that came with it then the updates which will uninstall everything, and reinstall it again, That will just cause a heavy registry. (Try and avoid it)
