Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It Rocks!
Mine is running Win7u and the Windows experience rating is 7.9 out of a possible 7.9 attached to an Intel 6Gb/s controller on a Gigaxxxx mobo.
Boot up is speedy.
Large enough for all my programs and two boot partitions - I keep data on a pair of RAID1 spinning HDD's.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: still trying to find the cons...

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9Q-32GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lightning fast.
Scores 7.9 out of possible 7.9 on Win7u experience index.
My boot drive is SSD but I don't use a pagefile.
Gigabyte mobo detected them and set them with no problem.

Cons: Very pricey.

Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Super fast.
Great graphics - it has been written that the biggest improvement in this processor for most of the extra transistors is the graphics unit. It does not disappoint - I don't play games on my computer and have no desire to purchase dedicated video card(s).
Windows7u performace rating from 1 to 7.9 with GA z77x-ud5h and 32GB ram and Intel 520Cherryville ssd:
Processor - 7.8
Memory - 7.9
Graphics - 6.6
GameGraphics - 6.6
PrimaryHDD - 7.9

Cons: A bit pricey.
It only rated 7.8 out of 7.9 Win7u performance.

Other Thoughts: I always wished I could afford a top-shelf cpu but always had to settle for middle-of-the-pack until now.
I suspect that I will be speed-competitive for the next several years.
