Avexir AVD3U16000904G-2CW Core Series (Blue LED) 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) Dual Channel 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Module
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Value, performance, cool LEDs

Cons: Timing recognition error easily corrected with XMP

Other Thoughts: Bought this RAM to complete a blue-themed customer build. Although it's not on the QVL for the ASUS Z77-A board, I can confirm it is compatible. Board initially recognized correct speed but wrong latency (11). One click on the XMP profile option corrected this and it's running fine so far.

Cool blue LEDs pulse asynchronously, giving you that extra little bit of attitude for your rig.

SAPPHIRE 100366-2L Radeon R7 260X 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive, available in single or dual-DVI out plus HDMI and Displayport, runs games at medium to high settings

Cons: Power-hungry compared to cards like the 750ti

Other Thoughts: This is one of the best entry-level cards you can get for around $100. I've installed half a dozen of these so far and no performance or reliability issues so far. Performance is solid in line with its price and it incorporates useful AMD display technology like Eyefinity and support for OpenGL / CL and of course Direct X 12. Design is a little plain and the cooling solution is just adequate. The plastic shroud feels flimsy but does an OK job routing the air and results in a lightweight card, no worries about it sagging like some with metal shrouds. Because it's built on the Bonaire GPU it does use more pwer than newer designs, definitely don't use in conjunction with a cheap power supply. For the price it's worth a look.

ASUS Z77-A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good features on a high-performance board where overclocking is not desired, ASUS quality, easy setup and tuning.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this board after two bad experiences with the ASRock Z75 PRO 3 board. I'll end up paying $70 for this after rebate and it;'s well worth the $3 difference. Much better quality and great features for the price. 4-phase power means it's not great for OC, but if you're looking to run a Core i3 or locked i5 this board has everything you need for a single card setup. Installed and fired up without a hitch. I've never had a bad experience with an ASUS product.
