Pros: Best CPU I've ever owned. Handles high end games such as BF3 without breaking a sweat. I even sometimes run other game clients along side BF3 and still no problems ever.
Cons: The heat is a bit of an issue (around 40C idle, 70C under load), but I purchased a Corsair H60 CPU cooler and have not seen temps surpass 60C since. I'm sure any ol' after market cooler will do just fine though.
Other Thoughts: I've owned this CPU since May 2009, and I must say that this it is by far the best I've ever owned (next to my old e8400 Wolfdale which I upgraded from, that thing is still incredible.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card overall, can handle anything you throw at it, HOWEVER, (read other thoughts)
Cons: Labeling this card as a X8XX series seems a little strange to me because every series before the 6XXX cards the X8XX series was the top of the line (next to the X9XX). I only put this into the cons section because it doesn't make any sense to do this and it will have, without a doubt, confused many people.
Other Thoughts: The 68XX series cards are set to replace the 57XX cards, THEREFORE, this card here is the high end mid-level card. It is essentially the 5770 on steroids. Yes it will play BF3 and Skyrim and MW3 but only on mid to high setting before it starts to hiccup.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: In RAID 0 6GB/s these babies fly.
Other Thoughts: Had some problems getting RAID 0 to work on a P7P55D-E LX with the onboard RAID, but I bought a RAID card and all was well. I'm sure this has nothing at all to do with the HDDs themselves, but just a heads up for anyone with this mobo.READ FULL REVIEW
