CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1333C9
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1333C9

Pros: Corsair is at least honoring the warranty, so giving them an extra egg, but generally very unhappy with this purchase.

Cons: I finished a new build and started blue screening immediately. Ran Memtest and found both sticks were defective. Put in some extra G-Skill I had lying around and system is working perfectly.

Overall Review: I bought this item from a box store that has a 15 day return policy - I didn't start my build for about a month, so was out of luck on the return. Will stick with Newegg on future memory purchases. Corsair is honoring warranty, but I had to pay shipping to get it back to them. Very frustrating when it's defective out of the box.

Didn't work for me

PNY GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card VCG84DMS5SXPB

Pros: Does what it is advertised to do. Decent video quality for non gaming purposes. Good price

Cons: Runs HOT!!! Using Fanspeed, I got a GPU temp of over 80c within a few minutes of installation. Only knocking off 2 eggs because this could be due in part to my PC. I'm running in a small form factor Dell that isn't exactly designed for optimum cooling. Still, would not run this card in any machine with marginal cooling capacity. Unless you have solid ventilation in your case, I don't think the heat sink alone is enough to do the job.
