ADATA XPG V1.0 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1600C4G9-RR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Affordable, low-profile, stable performance, looks pretty slick, and heat spreaders seem to do their job pretty well.

Cons: Often wasn't in stock when I was looking for a second one :)

Also, memory is tremendously cheaper now vs. a year ago. Wish I waited :/

Other Thoughts: This ram is really solid. I have two of these in a HTPC build, and they work phenomenally. ADATA is not as familiar as Crucial, G.Skill, or Corsair, but IMO it is just as good.

SPARKLE R-FSP400-60ETN 400W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.92 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 80 Plus Platinum, silent, 5-year warranty, good power delivery, cables are pliable, and absurdly cheap(In the monetary way of course).

Cons: Pricey when not on sale.

Other Thoughts: Quite an amazing power supply though. I got this on shell-shocker + promo code for a cool $25. It hasn't had one stutter, and I definitely have not heard any noise from the fan. It can run my Pentium G3258 at 4.2ghz, in which it doesn't seem to even care.

Not really a negative, but it does only have a single 6-pin connector. Another 6-pin doesn't make sense for this caliber of PSU anyways... Also non-modular, but it's not that many cables to deal with once things are plugged in.

My set-up:

-Intel Pentium G3258(4.2ghz)
-8GB's of DDR3 1333(2-modules)
-MSI H81I mini-itx
-1tb WD Blue
-Cooler Master Elite 110

AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05 GHz Socket AM1 25W AD5350JAHMBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast for its TDP, true quad core, decent capabilities for being overclocked on both the CPU and GPU, GPU is actually good, stays very cool, and fan can be very quiet. The box it comes in is absolutely adorable.

Cons: Mounting fan/HS is...annoying. Lack of dual-channel memory really hurts the gpu.

Other Thoughts: The GPU does well with lower resolutions, but it absolutely chokes on 1080p resolution games. This is because of memory constraints of the platform. Be sure to get 1600 RAM and also overclock the the gpu base clock and memory clock in msi afterburner. It makes a nice jump from the performance at stock.
