WORST PC PARTS ever! (please list your worst purchases and why lol) - Page 14

post #131 of 376
  • Antec P182 case - complete garbage, too cramped, no airflow
  • some crappy Dyantron cooler - flimsy and didn't perform well
  • some crappy MSI AM3 board (mATX) - no VRM cooling, MSI
  • some crappy MSI H55 board (I was a noob and didn't know about chipsets)
  • XFX 5770 - no drivers
  • HP Pavilion laptop - HP, ran scorching hot, no drivers, etc.
  • Blackberry - It was a Blackberry, 'nuff said.

My ASRock Wolfdale 1333-D667. It had absolutely no overclocking potential (...well, could change the FSB, but... eh, that will only get you so far).

Athlon X3 440, My Current CPU, Before I knew much about CPUs.. I thought more clock and more cores are equally as good as Intel's.. till I learned about Architectures..

TL;DR: Should've went intel on my rig.

Pentium 4 Prescott.
post #139 of 376
Probably the GTX 570. Mainly because of the numerous issues I have been having with it and BF3 (no matter how many times I Update the drivers) in addition to the inadequate VRAM for high res gaming. Back to the red zone I go.

Second 5850. Crossfire for the 5xxx series is the most atrocious thing on the face of the planet.
