G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2666 (PC3 21300) Desktop Memory Model F3-2666C12Q-32GTXD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Threw these things into my motherboard, hit the XMP profile, and boom, running at 2666 MHz. Having built several computer systems, I know motherboards can be incredibly picky and finicky when it comes to what memory they use. This made extremely nervous to by non-QVL memory, but those fears just vanished. These just worked. Heat sink also matches ROG colors, so it goes great with an Asus ROG motherboard.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I love water cooling memory, said no one ever. I would love G.Skill to come up with some better way to mount the heat sink that would make it easier to remove instead of using Über glue that's a pain to take off.

ASUS MAXIMUS VI EXTREME LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The firmware on this thing is really nice. Definitely an improvement. Also wireless AC on the motherboard is a huge plus. Lastly, can handle high-speed memory. Dropped in 32GB or 2666 MHz memory, and it didn't even bat an eye. Shocking, considering how freakin' picky the Maximus IV Extreme-Z was with memory. Overall, I like it a lot.

Cons: Really meant for quad-SLI, which I don't recommend as a lot of games don't have SLI profiles (LIKE TITANFALL) and the performance boost just really isn't worth the money. Now that I'm looking at it, I probably could have gone with a vastly cheaper board.

Other Thoughts: Think about if you really need the Extreme board or not. Having the slots is nice, but when was the last time you've used 6 slots for anything beyond graphics cards? When have you hooked up 10 internal hard drives to a computer? Unless you're a content creator, you probably should get a cheaper ROG board.

EVGA 04G-P4-2647-KR GeForce GT 640 4GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can run League of Legends at 60 FPS and Titanfall at 45 FPS at 1080p with no AA. Can also have insane textures for Titanfall due to its 4 GB of VRAM that it has for no reason. Since League of Legends is the most popular PC game, if you want a card that can run that, this is all you really need to buy. Fits in one slot and no external power connectors is also nice.

Cons: Does get a little loud under load.

Other Thoughts: Unless you want everything cranked to max or are playing games that are higher than DX9, get this card and save yourself a ton of money.
