Default Best of year products

End of the year is coming; drawing to the close of 2005, we could take a deeper look into what we have done with the products that went thru our hands. Perhaps, we could highlight some of the GOOD, Better and Best.

We can catogorized the product groups; or lump all products together as a whole. What do you think?

Best in Air Cooler
Best in Water Cooing
Best gadgets (controllers, etc)
Best Video card
Best memory

Bases:
1) Performance
2) Price point
3) Usefullness
4) Installation in degree of difficulity

Good project, with a few newcomers scheduled before the end of the year it might be hard to draw conclusion already though

My votes-

1) Venice 3000+ = good price/performance/low thermal/excellent oc.
2) Gskill DDR - kiss ***, bad customer service
3) NUUO power supply = good price point +features
