Pros: 26$. Made in the USA.
Cons: Wouldn't POST with these modules in. I used a stick from another computer and it posted fine.
The other stick was a Muskin but it was a Blackline 1600 stick from my game rig.
Other Thoughts: I had gotten some advice to stay away from the basic Muskin sticks. Only get Blackline and the "better" lines. I dismissed that advice and whoops.
Seems the regular muskin ram is spotty. The Blackline and other muskins seem solid.
Pros: Clean build. Asus has put a pretty nice heatsink on this card. Stock is quiet and cool. Overclocks very well and keeps great temps while staying quiet.
Over-clocked around 800/1600mhz with memory around 1000mhz it outperforms the Radeon 5850 and the GTX465.
Nvidia GF104 GPU for $220 bucks.
Cons: No 1GB TOP version available on newegg at time of this review.
Asus Smart Doctor has a limited over clock range. (for most this wont matter)
TOP Version comes with some great software (ASUS GamerOSD) for in game video capture/screens without having to alt+tab. It is not included in this version of the card and should be.
Does not support over two cards in SLI. (again for most it wont matter)
Other Thoughts: Claming you are mislead by a picture when the large bold product name at the top does not mention TOP anywhere is on you. Not to mention the stock specifications for the Core and Shader clocks are Nvidia stock specs.READ FULL REVIEW
