Pros: Just what I wanted-Good clock speed and reasonable price. It won't win any synthetic benchmarks against Intel but thats not my thing. Don't worry synthetic benchmarks are not even really future proof. AMD has made a very good product here and it is backwards compatible with thier older chipsets. That alone is very awesome. Im a gamer and coder and this cpu is more than enough to get my juices flowing.
Cons: None!! AMD will always remain my CPU company.

Pros: 199$$ LoL ! Trust me this card will still crush any title out there. Get it while you still can the 660 ti, 670, 680 is way too overpriced with this card still available. Buy it. Dont be a sucker for synthetic benchmarks.
Cons: This card does run a tad hot but its nothing a good fan system cant handle. Really its still a graphics card that I must say is my favorite ever.They solved the heating issues with the 580, but I use liquid cooling so I dont care.

Pros: Its installed windows 7 64 bit Faster than any hard drive I ever used! Came with adapter so I didnt have to Place it on the floor of my tower. I previously had the Solid 2 60 gig in my rig as a boot drive and I see a much faster response to everything in my system.
