Pros: I bought this card June 2011 when I put together a PC in anticipation of Skyrim. I was really only going for something that could play medium settings. The card came with a half off on "The Witcher 2" and after installing it and seeing that it recommended the highest settings with my set up (specs in other thoughts) I was shocked.
This card has played the following notable games on max settings with super-smooth framerate: The Witcher 2, Skyrim, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Guild Wars 2.
All in All I'd definitely recommend this card for anyone building a gaming PC on a moderate budget.
Cons: The only issue I have encountered was the physical size of the card. It was a bit hard to maneuver into my case, but that was mostly because of all the cords from my PSU.
Other Thoughts: The setup I put this with was Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52400 and 6 gigs of pc3 12800 ram.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great Monitor, it's large, has an excellent picture, and is inexpensive compared to other monitors in its class, and most of those other pieces of equipment have inferior ratings.
Cons: I don't seem to have any dead pixels. But there is a small light bleed on the upper left corner unless I turn the gamma below 60.
Other Thoughts: It's 24 inches, around 200 dollars, extremely reliable, no glare, no fuzzy images.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: I was using the stock paste that came with my Zalman heat sink and it wasn't cutting for heat transfer. After applying this paste, under the same gaming conditions my processor sits at 8 - 12 C cooler constantly.
Cons: Comes in a tiny little syringe and has no brush or spreader to help application to the processor. Wish it did.READ FULL REVIEW
