4.0 out of 5 stars nice case, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case for the price can fit 1 hdd :) a little but of room for an internal fan at the front maybe :)
only thing with this case is the power supply is a little on the loud side...thats not a problem unless you plan to have this under your t.v as a dvd/blu ray player as it could end up getting on your nerves...otherwise i would recomend this case its awesome.

I bought these for use with the Sega Saturn console as i bought it a while back and it was getting annoying having to set the time over and over and losing all my saves so i got these really cheap i must say and works great now my saves dont keep erasing :) a good product and you get 10 batteries which is really good they will last me a while i hope.

1.0 out of 5 stars Im sure it could be good but just gives me blue screen, 27 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im sure this product for the people who can get it working is a great wireless adapter, for me sadly everytime i inserted this into the PCI slot i would either get a blue screen when Windows loaded, it would just lock Windows up when trying to go onto Firefox or it wouldnt even get past the DOS screen lol. A shame as a really needed that card but ohwell. I think its due to the drivers...before Windows knew what it was it ran fine but as soon as i loaded up the CD and loaded in the uncertified drivers, it would freeze up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed, 26 Mar 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Crysis 2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
Well im having alot of fun with this game thus far. I'll keep it short but just to let you know this is pretty much nothing like Crysis 1 lol. Gone are the wide open areas that stretched for miles and pushed your PC to the limit and now we have small areas cleary because this game is for consoles also. Doesn't mean its a bad game infact its so good, just a shame in a way that PC has been tossed to the side once more but hey i'm enjoying it. I won't spoil no storyline but the PC i'm using is:

Core 2 Duo 2.4
3.5 gig ram
ATI 5570 ddr3
Win7
Not a very good PC but it plays this game wonderfully on very high settings much better than i could ever get out of Crysis1 lol.
overal a fantastic game, great graphics and so far a cool storyline and stealth is much better now. havn't tried multiplayer yet but should be fun. Basicaly if you liked first game you will prob like this, but don't expect to be buying a game that will benchmark your PC...its stupidly easy to run at high settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well its working fine at the moment, 23 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these actually by mistake lol because a while back i was making a PC for myselfand bought this card but i got the low profile DDR3 model, so when a family member wanted a PC built i just went and bought the same parts that my PC had. Of course this isnt DDR3 its DDR2 so when i found that out i was a bit worried incase it wouldnt play games that well.

It arrived really quickly and so i poped it in the machine and luckily its really good for what games we wanted it to play. I got F.E.A.R 2 maxed out on it so thats pretty cool and it could play stuff like Anno 1404, Sims 3, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Battleforge, nothing really taxing but it did the job. On my DDR3 model iv'e gotten games like Battlefield 2, Black Ops to run pretty well on medium/high settings so maybe this card can also do a similar job seeing as there pretty much the same card just one of them is using DDR3 instead. Its really not that bad of a card for some casual gaming. Overall i would recomend it if there is anything you might wanna know pop a comment i will try to help thanks.

Oh and incase anyone wanted to know, it gives you 5.8 on the Windows index thing for both Aero and gaming graphics while my DDR3 model gives me 6.8, thats a whole 1 point difference i dunno if thats much but just for your info :)

5.0 out of 5 stars there's life in the old dog yet, 12 Mar 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Well i'll keep it short but basically this game thus far for me is awesome. Its pretty much sticking to the old formula of 'If its not broken, don't fix it'
and so it's pretty much what you would expect from a Pokémon game.
I'm only about 2 hours in and already i'm having alot of fun with this game. The Pokémon names though are friking awful but with over 500 + Pokémon you can't really blame them lol. A nice addition is everything so far appears to be rendered in 3D even the inside of peoples houses and what not which is great, the battles have stepped up with some very nice animation on the Pokémon themselves but i'm still waiting on a Pokémon Stadium type battle system in full 3D. Overall fun game, seems easier to level Pokémon early on and just having a blast with it atm. I would say go and get it quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does its job and great for the price, 4 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well for the price its a great card. I was having alot of trouble finding a decent low profile graphics card. I started off with buying the ATI 5450,big mistake as its just not up to the job of playing any sorta decent games.

So then i tried this and while its not super amazing at playing games, it plays most new games pretty well on medium settings sometimes even high.

I am currently playing Starcraft2, Prototype, Assasins Creed brotherhood, League of Legends, Street fighter 4 and GTA4. It plays them all very well so you will have no problems running similar type games. For the price i would recomend it for sure but for hardcore gamers you will of course find something alot better but for a low profile card its great. Another plus is even though it has a fan its so quite. The only noise i hear from my system is the Cpu fan and thats it. Great product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 22 Feb 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Its a shame because this review would have been at least 4 stars if it wasnt for one terrible flaw in this game. I only got this for Co-Op missions with a friend, the other modes can get lost for all i care, but the trouble is while this game is extremly entertaining when we was playing it, you get to a 'checkpoint' but when you die you start the mission over. Imo thats the biggest fail of this game, if it started us off at the checkpoint like checkpoints normally do then yeah a great game...but wow talk about completly pointless checkpoints. Overall a nice game but ruined by a broken checkpoint system.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 14 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great portable! Good selection of pre installed games and if you have an SD card you can stuff it full of Megadrive roms as long as there in .BIN format. EVerything about it is awesome the games look as good as they did on Megadrive. The only bad thing is the sound, its very low pitch on all games but that dont bother me to much, i would recomend this system to anyone a fan of good old Megadrive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to the SF series!, 3 Sep 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Well first off i see some people here saying it runs like garbage on there PC and apparently 10 gb is to much HD space for this kind of game? :/ well anywho i made a cheap mini ITX machine mostly for everyday work and some mild gaming.
It has a Core 2 duo E6600 (2.4ghz) 2 gig ram and i use the onboard graphics.(Geforce 9400) and Windows XP. The game runs fine on Medium to low settings i can have backgrounds on and i get around 55 fps so don't gimmi that 'Integrated graphics suck' mlarky lol.I recommend the game as its alot of fun to play. You have training modes and what not to get used to the new style of gameplay and every character has there own move table like in other SF games so you're never left in the dark...you got charge characters and normal input characters. Charge characters are where you hold a direction for a couple of seconds for example and then do whatever the move is (M.Bison, Chun Li use this ect) i personally suck at charge characters lol so i use the input ones like Ken for example...they took away parry but thats ok the games still pretty good and you have these things called focus attacks now (I dunno if they were in earlier SF games but hey ho) and you press 2 buttons and you sorta charge up a powerful attack. If it hits your opponent they are dazed and fall to the floor but if you're quick enough you can do your super or ultra on them and they can't do much about it. Another good thing is the game has achievments if you like to collect those. Be aware though if your PC goes wrong and you reinstall Windows and this game it will work a couple of times but normally after that the game is no longer useable...some stupid copyright thing they implemented...anyways get the game its fun and its online to cya.
