Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.8GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601930 Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great value on this processor.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Get an aftermarket HS/Fan.

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of connections. Can hook up anything. Heavy (which is an easy way to identify a good PSU).

Cons: Lots of connections. More than you'll likely ever need.

Other Thoughts: It may have been overkill for me. I'm running an i7-930, 2 3.5" HDDs, and a Radeon HD5770. My UPS never shows more than a ~250W draw under load.

ASUS CuCore Series EAH5770 CuCore/2DI/1GD5 Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great value card. Fast! Runs all my games (BFBC2, Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2) at full settings no problem. Pair it up with an i7 and a hefty bit of RAM and it screams.

Cons: The coil whine is obnoxious when I can hear it. It's especially evident during synthetic tests, such as GLXGears.

AMD's official driver support for Linux is hit-or-miss.

Other Thoughts: I'm considering buying another for the Crossfire.
