MSI GeForce GTX 680 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N680GTX TF 2GD5/OC

Pros: This video card is amazing. The only wish I have is that I had sprung for the 4GB model. Oh well live and learn. I still have the clocks at stock but it has not batted an eye at everything I have thrown at it. I still sport an i5-2500K that I have modestly clocked to 3.8ghz. I couldnt ask for a better card.

Cons: None, unless your budget makes it out of range.

Overall Review: On an odd side note, upgrading from a GTX460 the temp in my case and even my CPU have both dropped 2 degrees Celsius. I am betting that it does run cooler than my old card and with the two fans has increased the internal turbulence/air flow of my case.

My doubts were shattered.

Pros: The difference between booting from an SSD and an HDD is just as everyone says. I will never put an OS on an HDD again. Everything is working beautifully and even a fresh install of Windows was considerably faster than expected.

Cons: The only con that I can speak of is the lack of "selection" allowed in the included drive cloning software. So if you have an HDD with more data even if its not saved in your OS folder, than the SSD you have, it will not work for you. It only allows you to not include the "standard" personal folders in Windows. But the box states its a "laptop" transfer utility, and this was for a desktop so I will not mark an egg off for it. Though this info in the details would have guided me to buy the one with out the transfer kit.
