Pros: this thing is a monster. stays ice cold even with heavy overclocks and runs everything with ease. the three fans are whisper quiet. I could not be happier. I have had this card for several months, wanted to make sure it was legit before reviewing. runs bf3, planetside 2, borderlands 2, bo2, day z, arma 3 like a champ. it overclocks over the factory overclock amazingly well and very easily due to the supplied software. this thing loves high resolution thanks to the 4g of memory, which also overclocks extremely well. I have had many cards it this one takes tbs cake. I have never had a card that ran so high over reference and stayed so cold.
Cons: not a con really but it takes up three slots. if you have a full atx board this should be a non issue. I run this and an Asus phoebus with no issue on an atx board with plenty of room to spare. it is big so be sure your case and mono will accept it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD250BW
Pros: what an amazing drive. Benchmarks where right in line with what samsung suggests. The price is unbeatable for the size and performance when coupled with the longevity rating of this drive. Do your research, this drive is one of the best. Look at all of the third party reviews and showdowns.
Cons: Not a con, but be aware there is no 2.5-3.5 adapter supplied, which is normally the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: what can I say, it is a multithreaded beast. For those interested in a gaming rig I would seriously consider cpu. I have known gamers who DO get more fps and stabilty going from an i5 3570 to the i7, especially games that are cpu heavy like ps2 or wow. Every little bit helps and this cpu will help you be somewhat future proof.
Cons: none, but if you spend this kind of money on a cpu why not get an aftermarket heatsink. the stocker is........ok, but even a $40 cooler will help a ton. I wouldn't dock an egg since the stock cooler is more than sufficient, but why not spend the price of dinner to protect that investment.READ FULL REVIEW
