Pros: Card works great. Hardware/driver install was smooth. Games are blazing fast with no stuttering anymore!
Cons: None unexpected. Only thing is my power usage doubled compared to my 8800GT I upgraded from.
Other Thoughts: Used my 8800GT as a Physx card, and Nvidia drivers set all this up automatically. Only trip was this card requires a 6 & 8 pin power connector. My power supply didn't have any 8 pin connections - be sure not to get an 8 pin motherboard adapter like i did first...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1156 95W BX80605I7860 Processor
Pros: very fast CPU, comes with stock cooler and fan which seems small but I am not going to OC, so is acceptable. Runs windows7 with ease.
Cons: price, need to upgrade motherboard & RAM at same time
Other Thoughts: significantly faster than my old school 2.3 GHz single core, however when installing my favorite game, Crysis, noticed it didn't make up for having a monster GPU (using 8800GT). Crysis only ran 2 cores < full power and idled the other 2. Games are still only optomized for dual core. Shows how GPU dependent Crysis is.READ FULL REVIEW
