Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I got two of these for a graphics / video / 3D animation workstation. One for the OS and programs, the other as a project drive. They are installed on a computer running an AMD FX-8350 with an Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 board and 16GB of DDR3 1866. I have tested the output while rendering video out as this is the most intensive. Together they hit 10Mbs so the speed is very close to what is advertised.

Cons: They never come with the full 500GB was more like 490GB

EVGA 03G-P4-2887-KR GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I got this for a graphics / video / 3D animation workstation. I know you’re not really supposed to use gaming GPUs for workstations but for the price I figured I’d give it a try. It’s installed on a computer running an AMD FX-8350 with an Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 board and 16GB of DDR3 1866. I am running the Adobe 2014 suit and am comparing it to my old rig that is running an AMD Phenom black try core over clocked to 3.8GHz with duel open GL Radeon 5k series cards. To render out 1080p video on the old unit took about 45min. The same project on the new unit takes 4.5 min. This card is not on the list of approved GPUs from Adobe but the standard GTX 780 is, and I can tell you that it definitely works well for rendering. Also note if you are not using any 3D rendering using the CUDA setting in Adobe is still about 30sec faster i.e. the file took 5min vs. 4.5min so there is a small difference. I still have to test 3D rendering but I would imagine that those numbers will be even better compared to my old unit since they do not have CUDA.

Cons: None

G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I got 1 set because I wasn’t sure if I would need 16 or 32GB. It’s installed on a computer running an AMD FX-8350 with an Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 board. I am running the Adobe 2014 suit and the highest usage I’ve seen is just under 9GB while rendering out video files from Encoder or Premier. I did have some memory errors initially but now that all of the drivers are updated there isn’t a problem.

Cons: None
