MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low power consumption
Low heat output
Great performance (at either my TV/monitors native res of 1360x768, or upscaled to 1920x1080)

Cons: Just the ATI Catalyst software, but that can be improved with future updates.

Other Thoughts: While I wasn't have any performance issues with my Radeon 4870, I seized the opportunity to grab this during a sale while it also had a rebate. Picked it up for a song, and couldn't be happier. It's a great replacement for my old card, and I hope to enjoy it for many years to come.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Compatibility, price, performance. This is a great set of dual-channel sticks of RAM.

Cons: First order had a bad stick. Had to RMA back for replacement. No mark-down, since sometimes electronics just go bad. No point in dinging the score down just because of a bad part.

Though it would be nice if shipping was paid for on defective products.

Other Thoughts: I got these specific modules to pair up with an identical pair already in my machine. Now running 8GB on Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and loving it. The first pair caused my machine (then Windows Vista Ultimate x64) to BSOD. Fortunately, this actually turned out to be a good thing. When I did some digging, I discovered my Seagate HDD that Vista was running on was beginning to fail. Gave me a reason to go to Windows 7 and swap out the HDD (waiting on replacement from Seagate now).

In summary, the replacement sticks are running rock solid in my system, for a total of 8GB of RAM, and I'd have no qualms recommending G.Skill to others in the future.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good performance, great price

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: I swapped a 4GB kit of HyperX for these because I got tired of forcing my PC2-6400 RAM to run at their rated clock speeds (they defaulted to PC2-5300 via the SPD). The G.Skill kit works great, and I haven't had any problems with them on my Phenom 9850 (soon to be a Phenom II 955). I'm definitely considering a second pair, to bring my system up to 8GB.
