Patriot G Series ‘Sector 5’ Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model PGV34G1333ELK

Most Critical Review
BIOSTAR K8NHA Grand 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250Gb ATX AMD Motherboard
BIOSTAR K8NHA Grand 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250Gb ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Cheap, reliable(once it starts working.)

Cons: Had to flash the BOIS to use any DIMM modual, Horrible manual. Wouldn't boot at first. After a couple of BIOS clears, and a power supply change I got it boot to a floppy. No Windows 64 support.

Overall Review: I bought this as a trial station (see if things work before I put them in my main rig) Once I got it working, it has been unstoppable. Am currently running 4 different versions of windows on the same drive. Does perform desently. Current setup: Biostar K8NHA Grand Sempron 64 2600+ 512 Patriot memory Radeon 7500

EVGA GeForce GTS 250 512MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 512-P3-1140-TR
EVGA GeForce GTS 250 512MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 512-P3-1140-TR

Pros: Nice Card. Games well enough for a Lan party box.

Cons: A little concerned about heat disbursement.

Overall Review: I used this in a MicoAtx tower and the temps were kinda high (50C idle 62C 3dMark Vantage). Added a pci fan in the bottom of the case and the temps dropped to 43C/51C. Gigabyte P55M-UD2 i5-750 4gig Patriot G Series "Sector 5" EVGA GTS250 Rosewill Green 430Watt

Rosewill FE-M020-BU Black / Blue SECC Steel Micro ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Small, but large enough to hold a nice simple Lan Party computer.

Cons: Did not come with enough screw in motherboard mounts. Did come with some plastic retainers. I am planning on using this as a Lan box, so I would have preferred all screw style mounts.

Overall Review: A couple of the edges were a little rough. I cut my thumb on the framing for the optical drives. Gigabyte P55M-UD2 I5-750 4gig Patriot G series "Sector 5" EVGA GTS250 Rosewill Green series 430watt
