Hilarious.. Same deal. The Tritton head set is the only thing I have ever bought that I really just hated. There has not been a single moment when I was happy with them. Easily, the biggest pile of excrement I have ever purchased.

But one of the bad things that i've bought is an MSI 760GM-E51. It fried my Phenom II X4 955 BE. But luckily I RMA'd the CPU and im going to buy a new mobo. (ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0)

I once got a 2x2GB pair of OCZ DDR2 RAM sticks to substitute my Kingston value RAM. The latter overclocked better.

My WD Raptor EL150 died only a few months after purchasing it a few years back. Was under warranty but was more cheesed off about the lost time re-installing everything.

More recently I RMA'd my Palit GTX 670. Fan sounded like a jet engine even at low speeds. At base clocks it was unstable and constantly crashed. Went for a HIS 7970 IceQ X2 Turbo at a bargain price.

Gigabyte HD 7950 3GB Windforce 3
$370 card
1) The fans didn't spin, got new piece
2) Booted with new one, screen was deformed, nothing helped it
3) 3rd one... Screen randomly going off + green lines on screen
4) Fans didn't spin, probably gave me the same piece I returned at 1)...
I felt like throwing the ******* card against wall, called support pretty upset and they changed it for MSI 7950 after all this bull****, works fine so far.

Crucial Ballistix DDR2 1066 ram, 3 of the 4 sticks failed over the coarse of a year. I imagine the forth would fail too if I kept using it (Went to Gskill and have been very happy with them).
Geforce 5200, before I knew much about PC it was supposed to be an upgrade from a Geforce 2 MX400. It was a little faster, when the drivers would work, which was rarely.

A Sparkle (AGP) Nvidia 7600GS passively cooled. I had to glue/tape a fan on it to stop it from shutting down within 5 mins.
