Pros: With an Intel 950, I still play all games at the highest settings with no FPS problems. I've played BF3, Borderlands 2, and it barely raises the fan speed.
Cons: None. At MOST I may SLI another card in the future, but I highly doubt it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.06 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601950 Processor
Pros: Despite bar graphs to the contrary, I still have no problem playing the latest games at the highest settings. I believe this chip will serve me well into its fifth year of use, which is the normal change date for my systems. (Coupled with a 1GB nVidia 460).
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Relatively low cost-high performance board with lots of SATA ports. Highly tweakable BIOS.
Cons: None I can think of.
Other Thoughts: Was a bit worried due to the DOA reviews of others, but that wasn't a problem here. My setup is paired with an i7-950 and an nVidia 460 1GB. Plays every game I've tried at the highest possible settings, flawlessly.READ FULL REVIEW
