G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable!
2400Mhz Speed
Flexible Timings

I have been running this same two sticks of RAM for 3 years now clocked at 2400Mhz on my Asus Maximus V Formula. They have never failed!

Cons: None

MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX Lightning 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I went from 2 ATI Radeon 5870's in CrossfireX to this one MSI GTX680 Lightning and it has made a HUGE difference. A few days ago I was playing Crysis 3 on highest settings and it would stutter and crawl when turning, even when I turned the settings way down. I popped this card in and fired up Crysis and there is zero stutter and all settings are maxed out!

Also, Newegg shipping is great. I ordered about a grand worth of stuff and two items shipped from Jersey to my place in Long Island in about 36 hours (lowest shipping option too) then the graphics card and power supply came a day later...but from California!! Super quick two days from California to Long Island imo without choosing an expensive shipping option.

Cons: None so far, this graphics card is a beast and stays cool. Stress test with Kombustor never hit higher than 65 degrees C.

Other Thoughts: I guess the three items that were separated during checkout that came from California were out of stock in New Jersey so I understand that, and I'm happy they upgraded the shipping to UPS 3 Day Select to make it quick. Newegg can have all my money.

XFX Radeon HD 5870 DirectX 11 HD-587X-ZNFC 1GB 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Pros: I used to have 2 Radeon 3870's in CrossFireX configuration in my old computer, this one card blows them out of the water. I haven't seen any of my games studder once, not even a hiccup. Mass Effect 2 looked beautiful with this hardware, Crysis is smooth even with Very High setting enabled. When the prices go down, I may get a second one and really stomp out new games with DirectX 11!

Installation was easy since it came with cd's, then update with either XFX site or straight from ATI's driver site.

Main thing I noticed and was most worried about is heat. This card stays soo much cooler than my old card. I used to play mass effect 2 for half an hour and my cards would hit 100 degrees celsius so I would have to stop, the Radeon 5870 never topped 60 degrees EVER. You can enable manual fan control in the catalyst control center and keep the fan higher when gaming and its still pretty quiet.

It also takes a really nice overclock if you want to do it through CCC!

Cons: None to report so far.

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with this graphics card, looking to buy a second one when prices go down a bit.
