CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast Ram, loads Win7 super fast.

Corsair support is awesome. I had a stick go bad, and RMA was a breeze. Fill in the questionnaire, and wa-laa, RMA issued.

I am going to order more now!

Cons: None.

Note: As with all DRAM and all manufacturer's, it is possible to get bad out of box as I did. Just RMA it. Corsair is lifetime warranty and the support is awesome.

Other Thoughts: Had to change bios to reflect 1600 8-8-8-24 manually, but no big deal.

ASUS Radeon HD 6850 DirectX 11 EAH6850 DC/2DIS/1GD5/V2 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: ASUS support is horrible. Many support tickets have gone unanswered. After constant freezing on my 2 new cards, I looked to ASUS forums for help. The forums are full of similar complaints. There are major problems with ASUS video drivers and they are not interested in fixing them. Also, because of there hardware/firmware design, normal AMD drivers do not even work with this card. I have gone through nearly 20 versions of drivers and have not found one that operates as its supposed to. I had to settle for a driver that only crashes my video card or BSOD's my system occassionally. By occasionally I mean I get video driver restarts only 3-5 times a night and I only BSOD 3-5 times a wekk. Thanks ASUS. I will never buy another card of yours again.

ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It boots.

Cons: Between this board and the two (2) Asus 6850 video cards I bought, this new build is horrible! Asus is of no help, they have yet to respond to any of my inquiries for assistance through thier support site. The drivers for the video cards are horrible. I went through almost 20 versions before I settled for one that only occasionally stops working. The mobo however, is horrible. I get BSOD's around 3 times a week sometimes it BSODS 3 times a night. When this happens the BIOS defaults to factory settings and I have to go and set it all back up again.

But hah! Joke on me, there isn't any ASUS drivers that work to solve the issue.

Other Thoughts: I will NEVER buy another ASUS product. I bought ASUS because I thought they had a great reputation and great components. I guess now that they are a great success they don't care anymore. I know have a $1400 brick that I can occasionally use for homework but forget gaming! Thanks ASUS for your awesome (sarcastic) product and your awesome (again, sarcastic) support.
