Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Read speeds were around 450 MB/s, just as advertised. A 7200 RPM drive had read speeds at just above 100 MB/s, so this SSD is around 4 time faster.

The price is good, cheaper than most other SSDs on the market.

Cons: Write speeds were much lower than 450 MB/s, but still quite a bit faster than a 7200 RPM HDD. The SSD was getting about 150 MB/s write speeds in my tests and the 7200 RPM drive was getting just shy of 100 MB/s. I took away a star for that.

Other Thoughts: This SSD works great for a boot drive as well as a good drive to hold a few games. If you do a lot of tasks that involve writing to the drive (such as video rendering) you probably should go with something faster.

Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLD38G1600HC9DC01
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good RAM good price.

Cons: Out of the box it runs at 1333Mhz, it is able to run at 1600Mhz without a problem. Just go into your BIOS and overclock it to 1600Mhz.

Other Thoughts: I thought the coolers were going to look pretty dumb, but when it's in your case you only can see the top and it doesn't look too bad.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Great board for the price. 08/30/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Has everything you'll need for a good price. 990FX is AMDs best chipset at the moment. It also looks great, it's a good pick for people who want a case with a window.

Cons: Only 2 16x PCIe ports and no PCIe 3.0 (this is a problem with the chiset and not just this board). This isn't a problem for most people because a graphics card in 4x PCIe 2.0 will only have a performance drop of less than 5%, but people who want to do 3 way crossfire with AMDs new bridge-less cards might not get as much performance as they could.
