Pros: Very fast CPU, and much faster than my Phenom II x4 955. I found that the CPU was my bottleneck for modern gaming. Now the games that were pegging 99% on my old Phenom barely touch 25% on the FX-8350. I also had to tweak some fan settings in bios since it would run max speed without calibrating with the new CPU. This is a great purchase since many have older AM3+ boards to breath some life into.
Cons: I dont think its related but my CCC (amd video driver interface program) wont load anymore. tried reinstalling didnt work. Will try again some day...not worried.
best bang for your buck juicer
Pros: Works like a charm. Just cut fruits and vegetables in workable sizes and don't strain the motor and you'll be alright. But a 3 year replacement warranty for cheap. I have had mine for a year now with no problems. But I bought a warranty just in case. Never had to use it though.
Cons: None. Except for the fact you have to clean it.
MSI NX8800GT 512M OC GeForce 8800GT 512MB Superfast not Ultrafast.
Pros: PCIe 2.0 is fast not much difference with 1.0 though. Runs Crysis x64 at Full detail and 4xAA with no worries. About 22 FPS. I got this for 185.
Cons: Big Fan, may not be able to SLI depending on your motherboards layout.
Overall Review: I am not SLI'ing anyways. Don't need to yet...
Seagate Barracuda ES.2 ST3250310NS 250GB 7200 RPM 32MB Zooming!
Pros: SATA300 is fast! Boots fast, loads fast, copies fast.
Cons: OEM - 30 days return is to short, but I have never had a drive fail on me, I keep my case pretty cool and keep a decent power supply connected to this puppy. ultra tiny jumper hard to get out.
Overall Review: sata data and power connections only.
