MSI N660 Gaming 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The two big quiet fans keep the card nice and cool, haven't risen about 36c under heavy load. Card has handled everything I've thrown at it at max settings.

Cons: I'm running 1280x1024, so I'm not sure how this single card will handle 1920x1080. But I guess I'll find out when my new monitor gets here!

Other Thoughts: This is my first NVIDIA build, and I'm never going back to the messy hell that was AMD video drivers. NVIDIA's drivers are flexible, easy to use, and even come with built-in recording and streaming software. Very impressed.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: They plug into the motherboard and work as advertised. Nothing to write home about here, folks.

Cons: No cons. I've used these in multiple builds and have never had any issues.

Other Thoughts: If you are building a computer and need RAM, buy this. If you need more later, buy more.

Cooler Master Hyper 101i - CPU Cooler with Dual Direct Contact Heatpipes - AMD Version
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very capable unit, quiet fan that keeps my CPU more than adequately cool. 50c under heavy load is nothing to sneeze at for a $20 heatsink.

Cons: Poor installation guide.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace the faulty stock heatsink on my Vishera FX-8320. Went from 76c idle to 26c. Cannot complain. If you bought an AM3 cpu, do not use stock cooling. Use this.
