Pros: Price/Quality. memory modules on the planet.

Cons: None....what part of none would you not understand? Corsair doesn't need any cons......they make the best memory on the planet.....PERIOD.

Other Thoughts: Paired 2 red modules @ CAS 8 & 2 black modules @ CAS 8 on an MSI 970A-G46, WD 5000HHTZ VelociRaptor (10k rpm), Sapphire Radeon HD7850(2Gb-256 bit), AMD AthlonII X3 450(3.4GHz tri-core), none of which is overclocked, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS. On a rate chart which 7.9 is considered tops, Windows Experience rates the rig 7.3 Not too shabby for a "non-SSD" rig. It's Corsair for me Podnah. I highly recommend the memory modules produced by Corsair to anyone. You get your money's worth here.

Pros: Price & functionality. Great card for the money. Don't know how well it will overclock, 'cause I have no need for that right now. 2GB/256-bit, GDDR5 on-card memory, 1024 stream processor elements, being supported by AMD, Corsair, Western Digital, MSI Computer, Windows 7 Pro-64.....really...who needs to overclock? There is an overclock version of this card, for those who feel the need, and it's awesome in it's own rights.

Cons: Nobody can keep them in stock. When you pair these with the proper supporting hardware/software, they become awesome performers and Newegg, Tiger-Direct, and some of the other distributors will find themselves scrambling to meet the demand for this card and it's overclocking sibling.

Pros: Price and functionality. I love it for what I do with it. It is very fast and responsive. Mine is quiet running. I have read in some other posts that it is loud and not quite as fast as some others on the market, but for not being an SSD, then I happen to feel that this is the one hard drive that will work for most. I do recommend that you pair it with some Corsair Vengeance memory(CAS Latency of 8) and a motherboard that will handle both, along with Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS. I also pair mine with MSI 970A-G46 motherboard, AMD AthlonII X3 450 Rana Triple-Core(3.2GHz), Radeon HD 7850(2GB/256-bit) videocard, and none of this is overclocked. On a Windows Experience where the high rate is 7.9, I quietly received a 7.3 rating. Only the SSD's are faster, and not by all that much. With the SSD's, the IOPS are higher, which lead to faster(not better) performance.

Cons: During the burn-in, there's a slight whining in the drive, but after that, "as quiet as a church-house mouse".

Other Thoughts: AMD, Corsair, Western Digital, ATI Radeon, Sapphire Tech, MSI Computer, Verizon FIoS...gotta love it!!!
