Most Favorable Review

Very good memory!

Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0
Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Very amazing - tight timings, really ow profile, great price and in a 8GB capacity per stick! Now, I can't confirm because I don't know, but this may be Samsung sourced sticks - just 8GB sticks of their amazing low profile memory sold with tighter timings via XMP, but of course can be easily adjusted in your BIOS.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Currently sold out and 16GB may be overkill for some, but hey this is sweet memory, but DDR3 is really cheap these days so why not have 16GB, especially when it is really low profile and tight timings at a cheap price! As mentioned in the Pros, I believe that this may be Samsung memory, just 8GB per stick and sold with tighter timings via XMP. I haven't tested overclocking personally but read a few reviews and I saw that at least 2133 is easily achievable if you adjust timings and speed respectively. Fits easily under silver arrow CPU cooler.

Works on PC

Pros: Works on Windows PC version

Cons: Title is misleading

Overall Review: Don't let the Mac in the title fool you. Bought this on Newegg as at the time of review. I took a chance and sure enough it works, but it should given the fact that this is a Steamplay title.

Great card for the price!

Pros: Possible to hook this card up to a TV/Monitor many different ways (composite, S-video, DVI, VGA, HDMI, Component) with the included adapters. Those adapters are expensive if sold separately. This card has awesome performance and features for the price - as it can NOT BE BEATEN. 7.1 Audio via HDMI!

Cons: The fan can be rather loud, making this hard to recommended for anyone with a HTPC, or planning on building one. These other cons don't really bother me, but it's worth throwing out if you are considering buying this card: Debatable if having 1GB of ram over 512mb on this card is any better. 7.1 sound doesn't support the new HD Audio Codecs as far as I can tell. HDMI requires the use of an adapter

Overall Review: I honestly don't play a lot of computer games, barely any to be honest, but what really sold me was the media features of this card, plus it has 1GB of video ram! I bought this card to upgrade from the onboard HD3200 on my motherboard. A HD4350 or 4550 might have been better, since it isn't to hard to find a passive cooled variant, and the media features are more or less the same, but I if I was going to spend any $$$ on a new video card, I'd want something significantly faster, and thats why I purchased a HD4670. A shame about the fan being a bit loud. Overall, a great card for the price!
