Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996559
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fantastic compatibility. I have yet to find a DDR2 laptop these will not work in. For the dollars, the compatibility and memory size, adds quite a bit of "zing" for most laptop upgrades.

Cons: These could be a bit faster, but then would the compatibility be there?

Other Thoughts: We tend toward these memory modules when free shipping is offered because they just work.
There are cheaper modules but the few dollars you might save are not worth the headaches of incompatibility or random blue screens.

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-HD2 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This board had everything I needed and provides the quality and workmanship I require for my customers.
The HDMI works in concert with the VGA out and is great for dual displays. (Work on one and have TV on the other)

Cons: I wish they would give me a PATA header so I could attach some of my legacy hard drives. Oh well, I have a PATA PCI card for that purpose, it is just not as convenient.

Other Thoughts: All in all this is a perfect bpard for almost any build type.
If you do not care for the haswell video you can install your own video card. Very easy Bios, and the settings are all in front of you.

Team Elite 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10660) Desktop Memory Model TED34096M1333HC9DC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: These are very dependable sticks. While they may not be the fastest gun in the west, they sure are the most compatible. I have run these in every DDR3 motherboard in the books and have never failed to post.

Cons: Did I say they were not the fastest set of sticks you could buy? That said, how much more are you willing to pay for speed you would barely notice in real world applications?

Other Thoughts: After everything is done and you have your new system built...test the boot speed, how fast the web page pulls up, and of course the if THAT mattered. You might have spent the extra $20 on faster RAM, and was it worth it?....Not unless you are a hard core gamer.
