Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.06 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601950 Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: There are so many things to like about this chip:

1) *** So easy to Overclock!!! (3.8 Ghz on Zhalman CNPS9900ALED Max Temp < 80c)

2) Lots of L2 and L3 cache. The 16-way Set Assoc cache keeps TLB misses low and its branch predictor is only rivaled by the upcoming Sandybridge

3) 8 logical cores - Games like SC2 and Eve really like to have the extra cores for computation. No game lag from CPU thats for sure.


Cons: Only the price really. I wouldn't buy one at more then $279.

Other Thoughts: Get a good CPU cooler and there is no reason not to OC this CPU. 3.8 Ghz is pretty decent, there is no reason you can't run this chip at least 3.4 Ghz with a little work.

SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 2333SW High Glossy Black 23

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great color reproduction, clarity, and great for gaming. DVI and VGA support.

Cons: Defective after 6 months. No height adjustment, no swivel.

Other Thoughts: I've had this monitor for about 6 months now and aside from the lack height adjustment I've thought the monitor was good. Not as great as view sonic but good.

Today it just bit the dust. I got a single vertical line of green pixels stuck. They show up even when the monitor is not connected to an output device (my PC). I've had dozens of monitors in my life and this is the first I've had this happen to. There is no way a quality product should have had this happen.

I talked to Samsung and they are going to replace it under warranty, but no advanced RMA process, so I'm back to an older 17" LCD in the mean time. What a black eye Samsung.

Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA1065
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The memory is fast as advertised. Runs great for gaming and all other computational tasks. Price is a nice balance between cost/performance.

Cons: RAM has started to fail after 4 months. Memtest86+ has found specific addressable blocks, so I will need to RMA the moduals.

Other Thoughts: I'm irritated that I'll have to RMA the RAM i purchased, but as log as Crucial doesn't give me a hard time. I would buy from them again. The RAM has been running great up until a couple of weeks ago.
