Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low price.

Cons: Poor speed. 95MB/s write, 150MB/s read. It's the same speed with 7200rpm Segate 1TB HDD.

MSI R4670-2D512/D3 Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this when it was a "weekend special" deal for 40 bucks after rebate + free shipping. No games played so I can't talk about the performance other than Windows Experience Index was 6.8 for windows aero and 6.8 for 3D gaming graphics on Windows 7 & Intel Q9550. When not doing any 3D the GPU clock steps down to 165MHz(GPU)/300MHz(Memory).

Cons: Only con really the fan is not as quiet as other people write. I was expecting much quiet from the reviews I had read. It is louder than of the other fans in my system. The 2-wires fan will neither correctly display the fan speed nor respond to fan control in ATI Catalyst Control Center. It spins at constantly 100% high speed.

Some video cards may have a regulator built onto the PCB which will control the fan. However most cards you'll find the controller is built onto the fan. Cards like this will usually use a 4 wire fan 3rd and 4th wire used for sensing and speed control. So in most cases if the fan is only 2 wires, it will run at 100% since it only has power and ground.

MSI's official answer for this issue was "FAN control is N/A for this VGA. The FAN speed always will be the same."

Other Thoughts: It doesn't come with the DVI-HDMI adapter, but I'm glad it supports audio signal through DVI connector. With the use of a DVI-HDMI adapter you can get both audio and video transferred simultaneously.

PNY Optima 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD2-800
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap after rebate and work without problem so far.

Cons: This memory is not a real PC2-6400. RAM timing is 5-5-5-15-20 at 667MHz like other PC2-5300 and 6-6-6-18-24 at 800MHz which is very slower timing than other memories'.

Other Thoughts: Good product until you realize what is the RAM timing. The manufacturer might be Samsung according to the SPD data, M3 78T5663QZ3-CF7.
