Other Thoughts: Purchased this drive in March 2014, and it failed in May 2015. It was a slow failure, though, and I was able to recover my data before it completely died 2 days later. This is the first time I've ever had a hard drive fail, so I wasn't even sure what it was at first. I'd still recommend WD products as a whole (my WD 1tb EX HDD from 2008 still works!)
I was either unlucky and received a bad apple, or this specific line of HDDs by them isn't so great. Proceed with caution.
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 twitch.tv streaming software. Very impressed.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
