MSI Laptop CX61 0NF-258US Intel Core i7 3630QM (2.40 GHz) 6 GB Memory 750 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 645M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quad core processor
Very little bloat installed
Nvidia 645M
Plays current games
16GB Max RAM capacity
Future upgrade paths (RAM, SSD) to improve performance

Cons: These are more "things to be aware of" than cons, since it is not a high-end laptop:
Screen quality average, viewing angle poor
Lack of lighted keyboard
1366x768 resolution
5400 RPM drive

Other Thoughts: I'm really pleased with the purchase, and would do so again. It's a nice build quality and a sturdy laptop without too much weight. There is some give and take here with what you get in the specs of the machine, but the price bears that out. I like having a laptop that finally has the ability to run games. A great option for those who want mobile gaming without the high price tag (or a second option for those with a power desktop setup).

HyperX Beast 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory Model KHX21C11T3K4/32X
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Speedy
Large amount of RAM

Cons: None at the moment

Other Thoughts: Glad I purchased this RAM. Less expensive than the Corsair. Seems well built and solid. Would purchase this RAM again if I had another computer to put it in!

Patriot Viper II ‘Sector 7’ Edition 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model PV7312G2000ELK
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Ran first time out of the box
Easy setup with XMP
No BSOD's running games

Cons: Not well known - Hard to decide if it was the right memory choice

Other Thoughts: I was considering either GSkill or Corsair for my memory upgrade, as they are the two brands that I have used in the past and many seem to trust. I decided to go a bit budget and see how these Patriot's would do in my system, based on the number of reviews of the other brands (Gskill, Corsair) that mentioned difficulty in getting them to run at the rated speeds. I am happy to report that these Patriot's ran at 2000mhz with a simple bios setting toggle (XMP profile), and the timings were recognized right off the bat. Have passed with flying colors with all the tasks I have thrown at it, be it gaming or otherwise. A great deal overall. Perhaps there are better performing memory modules, but these fit my needs well.
