Team Dark 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TXD38192M1600HC9DC-D

Pros: Works great, haven't had any problems after a year and a half of use. I even successfully lowered the timings, though I eventually reverted to stock because I didn't see much of an improvement.

Cons: The initial speed was 1333MHz when I installed it, so I had to manually set it to 1600MHz in the motherboard. Don't know if that's an issue with the RAM or the motherboard, but either way, it's not a big deal.

Pros: Absolutely fantastic card. Runs all my games at high/ultra settings at 2560x1440 with hardly a hiccup. Overclocks well--I got about a 10% increase in clock speed without needing to touch the voltage. Great bang for your buck, especially at resolutions higher than 1080p.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've had this card for about a year now. It's much better than the Radeon 7950 it replaced. I couldn't be happier.

Pros: The card is fast, especially when you look at raw number-crunching performance. Ran all my games fairly well at 2560x1440 on full settings.

Cons: Unfortunately, games just weren't as smooth as I expected them to be. Games like Far Cry 3 and Borderlands 2 stuttered pretty badly at times. The card is also really LOUD and runs really hot. I wanted to overclock it but the fan was on 50-80% as-is during gaming, and it was heating up my room really quickly. I couldn't stand it, so I ended up selling it and buying a GTX 660 Ti.

I'm normally a big fan of AMD, but this card let me down. The cheaper 660 Ti ran all my games more smoothly and didn't have any problems with heat, noise, or overclocking. Much better bang for your buck, unless you use your GPU for general computation (in which case the 7950 is way faster).
