Nice Overclock

OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 4GB (2x2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (The Official Memory of the Championship Gaming Series)
OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 4GB (2x2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (The Official Memory of the Championship Gaming Series)

Pros: Just purchased the OCZ and have the front side turned up to 1050 on my ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300, Nforce 730i motherboard. Just awesome memory for $37.00. Running with auto timings since the memory is EPP and the frequency is 666.

Cons: Takes trial and error to get this memory to perform.

Overall Review: Allot of complaints on the web and individuals on this site concerning this memory. I find this memory given time works quite well and the price is fantastic

Most Critical Review

Pure Garbage

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTX80G
Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTX80G

Pros: Do not purchase.

Cons: In 25 years I have never seen a hard drive manufacturer produce such garbage. Three drives out of five have failed with data on them in a week.

Overall Review: Stay far away you have been warned. Newegg will not RMA these drives.

High Praise from an AMD addict

Intel Pentium E2180 - Pentium Allendale Dual-Core 2.0 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E2180
Intel Pentium E2180 - Pentium Allendale Dual-Core 2.0 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E2180

Pros: Great processor. The E2180 is the best processor for your money. Came from an overclocked 939 AMD FX-55 and needed a dual core. I paid $69.00 for this gem and installed it in my new $80.00 open box 730i Nvidia ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300. I have the 2 Ghz E2180 overclocked to 2.8 Ghz working my way toward 3 Ghz. Just plain awesome. Until software is optimized for Quad core processors dual core Intel is the way to go.

Cons: NoNe

Overall Review: My system: ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300, nforce 730i, Intel Allendale E2180 with stock cooler, OCZ 4GB PC2 6400 Fatal1ty, Hybrid Nvidia SLI 9300 + EVGA 8500 GT 1GB, Vista Enterprise 64 bit.

Pros: For $xxx who is going to complain. If you have a 939 board this is the ticket.

Cons: Not Core Duo

Overall Review: AMD Rocks

Chipset

Comments: I have worked on literaly hundreds of motherboards. Most manufacturers are a slave to the chipset manufacturer. Everyone needs to know that it does cost money to get a excellent chipset. This said I must say the nVIDIA's nForce2 rocks the house. My last two machines were VIA chipsets and as good as VIA is nVIDIA is much better. Purchase this board with decent memory like a pair of twinx 256meg modules and you will be pleasantly surprised.
