MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX Lightning 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Came with 150 bucks worth of game credit, looks amazing in a case, and destroys everything I put in front of it. It never dips below 60fps in BF3 MP on Ultra, at 1920x1080. On a 120hz monitor on Ultra, it runs from 90 fps to 120 fps. It's a great card.

Cons: Not worth lost egg, but the reactor prevents 4 way sli due to it's size, effectively making this a 3 slot card for all intents and purposes. While you can take the reactor off, it kinda eats away at what makes the card look awesome. Like I said though, not worth losing an egg. It's also very long.

Other Thoughts: Great Card, Super Awesome, and now discontinued. I think I bought one of the last ones.

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 FX-795A-TDFC 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: It came with two free games, which is the highlight of owning this terrible waste of space. Screen flickering, driver crashes, constant babying of driver settings to get it to exist with the EXACT SAME CARD IN CROSSFIRE. Which had a DIFFERENT bios. With DIFFERENT stock clocks. Even this created all kinds of problems. Techs were friggen clueless.

Cons: Everything. From the shoddy cooling, my 680 Lightning, perfect card, tops out at 57c in BF3 on ultra, overclocked. The XFX 7950? 75 to 80c, not overclocked, and microstuttering all over the danged place.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these cards, thinking they'd perform well in a clone build I did of intel/nvidia gaming tower. They did not. It took multiple window installs, drivers, and downloading a 3RD PARTY PROGRAM TO MAKE CROSSFIRE TOLERABLE. You don't have to this with Nvidia. I returned one of these cards on newegg, and sold the other. Good riddance. Avoid XFX.

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I72600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

Pros: Excellent speed, and stock turbo boost. OC easily to 4.8 on air. Stable.

Cons: The stock cpu cooler that comes with it is terrible. Spend the extra 20 or 30 and get the coolermaster 520 or something else to help cool it.

Other Thoughts: I've had it for over a month, and I've had zero problems with it. My only complaint was the stock cooler that came with it, but it isn't really worth taking off an egg.
