Well, to be perfectly honest, Ballistix do have a reputation of failing quite often. BUt I believe this is due to people overvolting them. My first set was DOA and I have had 2 other sets since then ..both have overclocked VERY well and never had any problems.

Also they come with a lifetime warranty and have an EXCELLENT rma service.

The guy at the store deserves to be stabbed in the eyes with pointy electric prongs, castrated with a rusty spoon, have his spinal cord snapped via karate chop and then peed on while his lifeless corpse occasionally lets out a nerve twitch or two.

Because the level of which he has no idea what he's talking about is beyond all things stupid.

And your friend needs a good kick in the nuts for being so impressionable.
