Pushing the envelope of passive cooling

ASUS GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card ENGT440 DC SL/DI/1GD3
ASUS GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card ENGT440 DC SL/DI/1GD3

Pros: No noise makes for a quieter computer especially w ssd. Mostly I use it for hd tv, warcraft, and as a computer monitor.

Cons: With two computer monitors displaying full hd 1080p, the one in the hdmi output will blink out for an instant once in a while and the heat sinks are super hot. When I turn off the other monitor the problem goes away.

Overall Review: I want a quiet computer and willing to work within the limitations of this card. Obviously this is just about the most performance you can get considering the unreal heat sink it has taking up two slots.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Wait 'till you get charged the $40 for it when it came bundled with something ie: DOA item that got RMA'd

Overall Review: Be sure to take a system image before install. Nobody would actually buy these programs. THANKS NEWEGG FOR REFUNDING MY $40.00

High Expectations

M-AUDIO Audiophile 2496 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface 4-In-4-Out Professional Audio Card with MIDI
M-AUDIO Audiophile 2496 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface 4-In-4-Out Professional Audio Card with MIDI

Pros: Great converters and sound quality.

Cons: The software is really good, just that you have to figure out everything by yourself because the setup manual and help are unhelpful. To bad half my mediocre and at times frustrating experience was from a learning curve that could have been helped by a better manual.

Overall Review: I recorded mostly in 16 bit and some in 44 without knowing because the software defaulted to it a couple of times when I started a new project. Wish I had figured it out sooner before recording hours of material in 16 bit not 24. Frustrating.

Huge fan of triplite

TRIPP LITE ISOBAR4ULTRA 6 Feet 4 Outlets 3330 Joules Surge Suppressor
TRIPP LITE ISOBAR4ULTRA 6 Feet 4 Outlets 3330 Joules Surge Suppressor

Pros: I am unable to run a wire to our computers which share a window a/c among stuff, so this is the surge protection I need. Also in a bownout situation a few years back during a bad ice storm, the neutral ground was pulled out of the house. The acrid smell coming from all my expensive equipment left on at the time was only the Triplite which saved everything from total loss. I contacted the company to offer a testimonial and they sent me a brand new one because it has a lifetime warranty.

Cons: Get the four size and run extensions off that.

Overall Review: Though I just bought this one to protect my computers I have had them for more like 20 years. I recommend everybody buy one to protect sensitive electronic equipment.

Good RAM

CORSAIR XMS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2B1600C9
CORSAIR XMS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2B1600C9

Pros: Really good no problem RAM on my ASUS Motherboards.

Cons: none

Overall Review: I shop for Corsair memory and so far not disappointed. I bought the identicle 8gb for my other computer so they could later diagnose/swap out/ or double up, no problems at all.

Excellent

Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Really neat cable plug in solution, quiet.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Pleasure to pile on to so many 5 star reviews. One of only a few brands I look for Antec power supply being one of them and this is another standout workhorse should run most computers for many years and a couple of upgrades.
