G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-8GBXH

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works as intended. Installed and enabled XMP which set the timings to 7-7-7-21 @ 1333MHz. (Remember to enable XMP!)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Blue color looks nice in my case. Large heat spreaders make installing the memory easy.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 100259-1GL 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Just replaced this card after 4 1/2 years of use....No problems with it what so ever. Replaced with an HD7790

Cons: 150 watt power draw, no DX11 support (only 10.1)

Other Thoughts: Used this card in my gaming machine for the last 4 1/2 years. Never had a problem at all. Will be reused in another machine soon.

XFX Double D Black Edition Radeon HD 7790 DirectX 11 FX-779A-ZDB4 1GB 128-Bit DDR5 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent performance with a low power draw. (Only 85 Watts) Runs very cool. Plays all my games on highest settings with no issues...even Tomb Raider with TressFX. Only needs one 6-pin power connector. Out performs my old HD4870 by a wide margin which had a 150 watt power draw. The cooler on this card seems to be a very solid design.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Current system:
XFX HD7790 1Gb
Phenom II x4 965BE @ 3.8GHz
4Gb RAM DDR2 1066MHz
Intel 330 SSD 240GB
