EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 02G-P3-1559-KR 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I installed this Card and wow what a Performer! 2GBs of Video Memory another Wow! I am able to play Battlefied 3 and the graphics are phenominal! No Lag Whatsoever! All of my Older FPS Games at the highest Settings and again No Lag! nVidea has a New Updated Driver version 285.62 WHQL Beta you can simply download and install from their websight which resolves all of the recent requirements for Battlefield 3 and bug fixes which work wonderfully well. You can run with another exact model Card together in SLI Mode but it runs well enough on its own you won't need to!

Cons: Running at the Highest resolutions and Frame-Rates makes the card run a little warmer than I like, but using the Included Precision Software I was able to adjust the Fan speeds to what I needed without worrying about my card cooking itself to death! The default settings for the fan's RPM is okay but doesn't atomatically adjust as the temperature rises without having to use the Precision Utility Software and the Precision software must be always running in the background in order to control the Fan Speeds to what I set them for. The Card is quite large! If you don't have a Mid to Full size tower forget about trying to put this baby in! The Card also will be extremely close to the other if you plan on installing 2 of them running it in SLI which WILL NOT provide enough room for the first Card's Fan to Breathe!

Other Thoughts: Abosuletly in NO WAY attempt to Overclock this card! Doing so may increase your Framerates but it will also produce Artifacts as well as Overheat the Cores! It works just fine with the default settings except for the Fan Speeds. If you feel you need more HorsePower than this card has to offer then you just need to simply Pony Up The Cash and by a Card with the HorsePower you desire! I play Battlefield 3 with this baby and I haven't had any problems whatsoever!

G.SKILL 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL6S-4GBMQ

Pros: I installed 4 of these in an HP xw4600 Workstation and it was recognized by the bios instantly! All 16GBs was available for use! The performance rating by WIN7 Pro 64bit gave it a score of 6.7! I am very happy with the fact that I now am able to use all 16 GBs if I need it without hitting my Harddrives Pagefile! I play alot of FPS Games and hated the infernal out of memory errors I had previously. With these babies installed I have had no Problems with Memory errors or Performance issues whatsoever!

Cons: Nothing wrong with the This Memory! However if you own an HP xw4600 Workstation and thinking of Maxing out the RAM you must first disable the ECC Checking in the bios before installing these Modules because these Modules DO NOT Support ECC.

Other Thoughts: I am thoroughly Satisfied with these Modules. I plan on Upgrading my Wife's and my Childrens PCs too! They also have HP xw4600 Workstations as well. What can I say we are a Gaming Family!
