Pros: Well I waited and waited for the price of SSD's to drop before purchasing one and now that these bad boys are around 150 bucks I couldn't pass up the chance to finally have an SSD in my gaming rig. This thing is FAST... and totally stomps my 1TB 7200RPM Seagate Barracuda in terms of boot speed and game loading.
Cons: Still not as cheap as traditional mechanical drives GB/per dollar. Not worth losing and egg over though.
Other Thoughts: I installed all of windows update files and such updates like SP1 for windows 7 would take 2-5 minutes to "configure" after restart but with this drive it takes less than 30 seconds. That's fast.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So far so good, I haven't had any of the problems some of the people on this site have had with this card. I think most of those complaining about fan oil are those that are stupid enough to set the fan at 100% for long periods of time. I run SWTOR at MAX graphics @ 1080p for 60-110FPS solid. Planetside 2 runs 60+ maxed out with shadowplay recording in the background. Don't get mislead though, you need a powerful CPU pushing this thing so there are no bottlenecks. I currently run a 4770k OC@4.4Ghz so there is no bottleneck period.
Cons: This is one of the better priced Ti's but its still $600+ which I think is too pricy. That being said I wanted to build a new system that would last me 6+ years and in order to do that I needed to choose a card that would still be beefy 5 years from now. This is that card.
Other Thoughts: The Titan isn't worth the cost.... You can go with 2 of these in SLI and stomp a Titan Z to pieces at half the cost.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Under 150 dollars and has all the overclocking options you need.
Cons: Has a Sound driver issue.... read below.
Other Thoughts: You have to uninstall the Microsoft sound driver BEFORE you install the MSI realtek drivers for the onboard sound. If you do not do this... the driver will have problems starting up. It wont detect your speakers and will shut down when you start programs that use the sound driver. Once this is done the sound works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
