ZOTAC ZT-40404-10P SYNERGY GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Relatively quiet fan, even under load. Cools pretty well, too -- I've never seen it break 80C, and idles at a good ~30C.

Solid DX11 support helps in many games

Despite its age, it can still run most PC games at high specs, if not maxed out, at decent framerates

Support for all modern connectors, including DisplayPort!

Overclocks rather smoothly to some 800MHz or so for me, which is where I've been running it.

Cons: Zotac's rebate process never worked for me. I don't remember how much the rebate was, but after a while I just gave up on collecting it.

Will -not- work with more than 2 displays.

Other Thoughts: The 2-display thing is apparently an nVidia thing, so I don't let that count against it really. Just be warned that, at this time, if you're looking for a 3+ display setup, your only options to keep them all as separate desktops are either some really high-end (expensive) cards or multiple GPUs, and I ultimately settled for the latter option.

Even after almost 3 years, though, it admirably powers most games on the market and it's lasted this long without any problems. Go for it if you can find it cheap (I'd say <~$160), but don't believe any rebate offers from Zotac.

Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: Spacious -- Fits my Hyper 212+ CPU cooler and 2GPUs on a full ATX board without any problems

Cooling -- The default fan arrangement is pretty good for a case in its price range, and you have the option of adding even more fans for even more airflow

Plenty of expansion slots, probably more than most will make use of, but the presence of a couple of 3.5" slots along with several 5.25" bays allows most to expand as suits their fancy

Completely tool-less installation of most components, the exception being PCI cards, which require a regular Philips screwdriver. I personally don't mind this at all.

Bottom-mounted PSU helps with stability and makes it straightforward to route power cables

Cons: A little thin. With my Hyper 212+ CPU cooler installed, I can't use the upper fan slot on the side anymore.

Poor tiedown spots. I had to get a little creative to do cable routing because the tiedowns that were available didn't align with my routing plan, which is a pretty simple one IMHO

Other Thoughts: This case has served me well over the years, and it's probably the best one you can get for its price, especially when it's on sale and drops to ~$40.

Also, not really a con, but I've been discouraged from seriously entertaining the idea of using the two side fan slots because they're on the same panel you pull off to tinker inside. It seems like it'd complicate using the fan pins on my motherboard, anyway.

OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Solid -- Lasted me a few years through everything from regular web browsing to video playback to high-end gaming
Low-profile -- Means it's unlikely it'll interefere with heatsinks and cables, depending on your situation

Cons: Falsely advertised -- I could never quite get these to run at advertised spec. I could get them to run at 1600MHz via my Sabertooth X58's BIOS overclocking utility, but only with 9-9-9-24 timings instead of 8-8-8-24, even at 1.6V

Other Thoughts: I've replaced these with 6x4GB G-Skill 1866MHz DIMMs purely because they were a steal at the time; these sticks showed no signs of slowing down by any means. I did, however, notice that the G-Skills actually ran at their advertised speed and timings. I'll echo what another reviewer said: I wouldn't recommend OCZ anymore, but these are by no means poor sticks.
