SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Super Slim and Light Weight. I purchased 2 of these SSDs to run in a Raid 0 setup for ultimate performance for my OS drive. I was not disappointed. These drives are ultra slim, fitting into almost in case, laptop, or microPC situation. They are also ultra light weight, these SSDs should not add any significant weight to your system.

Overall performance is on par with the specs listed as well.

Cons: The software included with these SSDs does not recognize RAID setups. So if you are looking to install two or more of these and clone your old OS to them in a RAID setup, the included software will not meet that need.

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition DirectX 11 FX797GTDFC 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: On first installation and user these cards are great, but it is not until after you begin to use them that their true nature shows it's self.

Cons: First I purchased two of these at the same time as I am doing a Crossfire setup. Of the two cards one was DOA and after dealing with XFX support for 3 weeks I finally convenced them to send me a replacement, Shipping at my expense ofcource!!

Now when I get my replacement I get a new surprise, there are two versions of the card. Apparently this card can come in two flavors even though the product number is the same. One version has 2 DVI ports, the other has 1 DVI and one HDMI. Now hoping this is just a pot difference and not a card difference I connect my replacement and setup my Crossfire setup. For 6 months everything is great, but then trouble starts, I am now experiencing random crashes and system lock-ups when running graphics intensive applications. I know it is the video cards because the offending .dll is the ATI ones.

Now before you ask, yes I can tried driver updates. I have even done complete OS rebuilds 3 times and each time I ensure I use the latest ATI approved drivers and I still have the issue. I have narrowed down the problem to the card I did not RMA already.

So let me experience be a guide. Just go with NVIDIA that or a different manufacturer then XFX.

ASRock Z77 Extreme9 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great expandablity and future upgrades.

The Number of PCIe slots ensures you have room for a good amount of cards.

Dual LAN connections

Wireless and Bluetooth Built in

Cons: I was not a big fan of the memory slot type, only one side has the tabs you click into the slots on each chip, the other side just slides in.

No Crossfire Bridges included only SLi. Given the fact that they recommend that a dual ATI card setup in Crossfire use PCIe Slots 1 and 5, they should provide Crossfire bridges to accommodate this. The Crossfire Bridges you receive with almost all cards is going to be either 60cm or 80cm, the gap on this MB is going to require a 100cm Bridge . Based on this fact I think the MB should have came with the bridges.
