Default Post Your Favorite Hardware Here!

Ok the time has come again. I need some help on what to list for my store. I have a few items in there now, but could use more help on what people think are hot and whatis not. So I hope to hear from most of you. Thank you for all of your help. When listing your favorite items list them in importance. Also give me an average price if you want to help out even more. Thanks to all for participating. I love this board.

~Ronin~

I love the 7800 GT, it was a great price.
DFI lanparty motherboards are good.
Dual Core processors are "in".

These are IMO the best brands for each respective product category:

CPU: AMD
Motherboard: DFI
Memory: OCZ
Video Card: eVGA for Nvidia, ATI or Sapphire for ATI
PSU: Antec, OCZ
Case: Thermaltake
Hard Drive: WD Raptor

Other hardware is usually of the same quality and/or is based on user prefrence.

While modular PSU's may be popular, they are not as good as hard wired PSU's. Don't forget the X-fi sound cards.
