Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52500K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

Pros: Great processcor. Stable, fast, doesnt run too hot. The only thing left to test is how well it does overclocked, but based on how stale it is at defaults and by reading the gabillion positive OC reviews, I do not expect it will disappoint.

Cons: It doesnt do my laundry for me?

Pros: Great Performance for great price. Makes even my old junky 19" LCD monitor look great.

Cons: No HDMI output, fan could be more robust.

Pros: Decent price for size/speed of the drive, seems to be quite solid

Cons: I am skeptical about the reported transfer speeds (ie. 6GB/s). Its not that I feel the two I got are slow... I have them in a RAID 1 config, and I know that can slightly impact performance, but I am not seeing anything resembling a 2x read-response benefit compared to my old 3GB/s drives.

Still good drives, but I probably should have gone with SAS drives and a PCI RAID card... its just way more expensive to do that.
