TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent performance under Linux

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I was a bit wary after reading so many low reviews but they were for Windows so I pulled the trigger and picked up up anyway. The Linux distro I'm using is Manjaro and the card works without a hitch. I didn't even have to install any funky drivers. It has excellent speed and even though the PC is one floor away from the router, it consistently has full connection.

MSI GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) DirectX 11 N580GTX Twin Frozr II/OC 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's an Nvidia GTX 580 with a custom cooler that rocks!

Cons: If you're going to SLI with this bad boy, make sure it's on the bottom. Close quarters SLIing will heat up the metal enclosure crazy fast so in a way, the cooler is a double-edged sword. I wouldn't recommend SLIing multiple Twin Frozrs.

ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Tough, great color scheme and aesthetic design, great BIOS makes it easy to over clock safely among other things, useful MemOK utility

Cons: Placement of some of the PCI slots

Other Thoughts: Using this motherboard has been nothing but pleasant, even upgrading the BIOS is made easy and safe.
