SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100352VXSR Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works, it kinda works.

Cons: I'm now 7 months into owning this card. The high pitched squeal the card had when I first bought it has resurfaced. My fps has significantly lowered from the 50's I was seeing while playing planetside 2 down to in the 20's. The GPU will crash even while viewing basic websites or youtube videos causing the driver to crash which crashes my whole system giving a bluescreen saying the atimkmgr.sys has crashed and a reboot. I have tried multiple versions of drivers to no avail. Newegg will not allow an RMA as I am not outside their return policy and Sapphire is telling me to go back to the initial reseller for warranty fulfillment.

Other Thoughts: After being given the complete run around from both companies I think its time to head over to my local electronics store and see what they have from Nvidia...

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast HDD. Had to install Windows 8 7 times due to an unrelated driver issue after the install, but each install went very very fast.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: I am worried about the limited number of cycles the memory can be written to, however, the pro series using MLC instead of TLC greatly increases the life of the drive. In reality I will probably never see the end of this drives usable write cycles as either an upgrade or the drive dying due to other reasons will probably happen first.

CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2400C10
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast and, thus far anyway, very reliable memory. I have been using the XMP profile, running at 2400 since the second time I booted my system with no problems. Even while doing very memory intensive tasks the memory doesn't seem to get hot. At first I thought I would need a dedicated fan on them, but it would seem I do not.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Looks really good in my build, too! Now I just have to save up my pennies to get another 16GB to max out my board...
