Intel BOXDZ87KLT75K LGA 1150 Intel Z87 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Top of the line enthusiast board from Intel. Like all of Intel's boards, it really does set the standard. It's a shame Intel will be exiting the motherboard segment in the future.

Cons: Haswell USB 3.0 chipset flaw on earlier versions of this product.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to know what you're getting. Version G74721-304 has C1 stepping, while G74721-305 has C2 stepping.

For additional background do a search for PCN 112425-00

Newegg should probably consider indicating on their order page which one they're shipping, as I ended up with the older part and am currently having to go through the RMA process.

EVGA 512-P3-N807-AR GeForce 8800GT AKIMBO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: This card is the mack daddy ... but you'd better use both hands to pick it up LOL. Installed in a Dell Inspiron 530 Q6600 with stock power supply. Used nTune to overclock to 720 / 1000 ... bringing it in line with it's sibling. Doesn't break a sweat with Crysis at 1280x1024, 2xAA ... and stays well under 60c with the fan ramped up. Yes - you need one of these.

Cons: None!


Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Having looked at "many" PSUs including the X-Connect and Tagan, I finally went with the Modstream 520. Let me tell you, this thing is NICE. Great build quality and a polished finish / blue LED fan that will dress up your rig without adding too much disco bling. The EZ-MOD cables are equally impressive ... and somewhat better thought out than competing designs IMHO with their flexible ends. Did encounter a problem with the stock blowhole fan in my PC-65, but many thanks to the reviewer who recommended replacing same with a Zalman 80x80x15mm. Overall -- a great unit that you just can't go wrong with.
