PowerColor X800 GTO 16

To make the long story short, it would’t be wise of me not to recommend this card. Everyone who is seeking a cheap upgrade yet wants decent performance should give PowerColor X800 GTO16 a considerate and detailed look. Whether you’re a gamer, enthusiast or graphics editor you should not look beyond what Tul offers with this rebranded XL video card. This board is packed with features (including dual DVI links) and great performance. At $179 USD it’s simply a steal. The only gripe I have is lack of VIVO capability — only TV out. No related posts.

Thermaltake PowerStation 520W

Thermaltake 520W model is stable even when overclocking the CPU to 2.5GHz from standard 1.8GHz and accordingly adjusting voltages. The only potential problem I noted is the whole PowerStation device “thing” I have nothing against flexibility and benefits coming from innovative components such as this one, but in the long run it plays too much of a decisive factor with this product.
