Default Parts to NOT buy

Here I would like to make a list of the common computer components that people buy that are absolute crap. This would be valuable to people who do not really know what they are looking at and they want to make sure they buy the wrong thing, and for other people who just want everyones opinions on certain parts. Please put a breif description of the part, and a link to it, and the reason why it is so bad.

**Please, no fanboy comments. Have a legit reason for recommending against something.**

It does almost nothing, since there are three very small fans, and they have a very very short life span and become EXCRUTIATINGLY loud when they are dying. Not worth the $10. Better to spend the money on a 6 pack.
