Awesome Quad

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 - Core 2 Quad Quad-Core 2.33 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80580Q8200
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 - Core 2 Quad Quad-Core 2.33 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80580Q8200

Pros: This quad is great for the price! 45nm keeps it extra cold, mine run 24 C at medium load while being OC'd to 2.65 GHz. Super fast and responsive!

Cons: Only if you are a huge OCer than you want a Q6600, this one is harder to produce huge numbers out of!

Overall Review: Little Heat!

Best Hard Drive Available

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It is blazing fast for a single drive, when I had it alone I got 109 MB/sec reads, no other drive I have ever owned came near that. I recently put 2 in raid0 and im getting 210 MB/sec reads now and from my BIOS to W7 screen take 10-20 seconds. Also very quite drive, no clicking or humming.

Cons: Non so far

Overall Review: Snatch these up while they are in stock these are the best available hard drives, also the 1 TB F3's if the price is right.

Great Ram

OCZ Obsidian Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3OB1600LV6GK
OCZ Obsidian Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3OB1600LV6GK

Pros: Decent price for a 6 GB DDR3 kit. I havent pushed them to their limits yet, but i down clocked them from 1600-1450, and this allowed me to tighten the timings to 7-7-7-16 instead of the stock 9-9-9-24. Also they use alot less voltage then my 4 GB kit did 2.1v compared to 1.6v now. OCZ is also a great company, never had any RMA issues with them!

Cons: DDR3 is still pricey!

Overall Review: Put this in my i7 build i7 920 Foxconn Bloodrage OCZ 6 GB DDR3 eVga GTX 275 runs plazing fast!

Good case
