Go USA

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996981
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996981

Pros: I manage to get this to a cas 6 (cas 8 or 9 boxed) stable for days with alot of good timing; however, deemed unnecessary for lack of noticeable speed unless running bench marking programs. regular and gaming use was still fast. This is very stable Ram. They make this in the Colorado, GO USA. Support will be a breeze whenever this break... if ever. Most other company are made where english is a second language and support hard to understand with their rich accents. BTW i am Asian/American

Cons: The Price is high but if it break and least you have good customer service to relay to and very fast shipping. RMA is usual fast and decent from what i hear from Newegg. It is twice the price of Gskill with the same bench mark when it was compared on tomhardware.com

NO RMA SO FAR!

Pros: I read a lot of reviews with every SSD on newegg. Many came with a lot of high RMAs so far; seems like around 50- 80% good... I am glad that this one did not break on me yet what it seems like SSD fail in the first month on most newegg reviews. Mushkin seem like a good choice since their RMA had better review even though it fails with better customer service. If I had to trust anybody it was going to be with Mushkin brand. Sure there was others but Mushkin only make premium ram and SSD so they should know their product well. Anyway i got better start up and let me play Diablo 3 on a ATI-3650 (which was studuring before in which the SSD cured the studuring; the SSD was helping the GDDR2 videocard)

Cons: The window experience index (WEI) set this to 6.9 where 7.9 is max... this is still the slowest thing on my system, but by far the best thing that you can do to speed up the system. would be happier if it max to 7.9. A is a 2 or 3 WEI point bump up from normal 7200 hard drives.

Great MoBo

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: So far very stable. I help my friend out on making his Asus- sarbertooth and was jealous of his MoBo so i debated on buying on. However i saw reviews. Now I feel like I have the better board. It designed better... like the PCI x1 is right under the crossfire, now how i am i going to put a freaking Wifi card there. The RMA rate between the two was staggering. Asus was a good brand name till they split into two companies. Gigabyte may not be know for their board but i believe that it better than Asus now. I like how the board/ components radiates the heat. my room is 15 degrees much cooler. So far best design overall

Cons: The mosfet get hot and i can't find a water cooled replacement for this cheaply. well it get ruffly 80 degrees on full power. It is not necessary but well help on life, power consumption (hotter it gets the more power it consumes thus hotter it get in a endless cycle till it hit a higher equilibrium of heat output and power consumption), and temperature of my room.

Standard for years

XFX Double D Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity HD-695X-CDFC
XFX Double D Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity HD-695X-CDFC

Pros: I have played 14 hours straight on on this card. Still very silent. It can play BF3 on ultra settings and very smooth. 2 Gigs of GDDR 5 is the standard for ultra setting till a game is need for 4 gigs of memory, possible 4-6 more years. One card is all is needed to run BF3. I will run Crossfire when price go down more and if that 20-30% bump of power is needed, which seems like it won't need for a while. The price is worth it considering speed of ram and processing power. It is even cheaper than 3way a 3850 in combine price.

Cons: There was a deal with these card, Deus EX and battlefield 3. Deus Ex was a bad coupon code for it but was resolve with AMD quite quick, think less day and a half. so far nothing bad happen to the card. It took me 2 hours to put in... it was my fault though, motherboard what not giving it a signal to the display, had to go through the bios. after 5 complete made computer myself and i could not remember no to do something noobish.
