EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) DirectX 11 03G-P3-1584-AR 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Running good. Idle gpu temp is around 43C with the fan at 40%. Seen it go up to 63C with the fan at 70% when playing in my games. My software allows the fan to increase with the core temp.

Cons: expensive.
also - im using driver 290.53 dated 21-DEC-2011 (most current availiabe as of 26-JAN-2012) and that driver has stopped responding twice when I was playing World of Warcraft. There was no crash, WoW just minimized to my desktop, then after a minute the driver recovered and the game was working.

Other Thoughts: When I needed to ask EVGA a question, I was live with there rep after being on the phone for about 2 minutes, which is incredible fast, and they knew exactly how to help me.

Pros: -Very fast
-Windows Index hard drive rating 7.5
-NO crashes
-NO blue screens
-perfect performance

Cons: price is NOT really a con after I read about other hard drives who fail so often.

Other Thoughts: did lots of research, decided that samsung hard drives have a far less failure rate than any other brand I looked at

Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52500 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000

Pros: Installed on an EVGA Z68 F.T.W. motherboard for two weeks now. Used a Cooler Master Hyper N520 cput fan. Not a single crash/blue screen or anything else negative.
CORE 0: 28C
CORE 1: 29C
CORE 2: 31C
CORE 3: 28C

CORE 0: 58C
CORE 1: 60C
CORE 2: 62C
CORE 3: 59C

Cons: I did not use the stock heatsink/fan but purchased a better one.

Other Thoughts: My core 2 runs a tiny bit hotter than the other 3 cores, but probably cause I didnt get a good amount of thermal grease over that core. (this was the first time I have ever installed a cpu heatsink fan)
