EVGA 04G-P4-2768-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support SC 4GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent card.
Physical installation is not that difficult. This card needs a lot of energy. You will need a 6 pins AND an 8 pins PCIE cables with a solid power supply ( 750 W preferably).
Booted the computer and before I could do anything else WIN 7 64 had found the driver and installed it.
One little detail: I told you it needed a lot of energy. It does not use all of it and in the summer time will provide you with plenty of extra heat.
You can't have it all...
In normal use it remains pretty cool. If you play a fancy game in Ultra mode, it delivers great pictures and heat. Only then can you hear the fans.

As usual ,Newegg rocks! Ordered Sunday, delivered Monday evening...

Cons: Now the bad news...
The EVGA rebate procedure is as usual designed to confuse and get rid of a good portion of the applicants.Too bad: I was not impressed and I finally made it through.
To get the famous Watchdogs game is also a nuisance, Complicated and confusing procedure. Ubisoft has a pale copy of Battlenet that they want you to use. Registration and unlocking of the game are also a pain...
The graphics are excellent.
Great engineering and poor commercials

Other Thoughts: Buy it anyway. It is worth it.
Save money for a small air conditioning unit!

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have a 2410 and a 2412.
One of them is much more expensive than the other one.
For the usual applications, i do not see much of a difference...
Now, if you put a serious video card behind these monitors and go in fancy territory, there is definitely a difference.
Conclusion: At this price it is a seal!!!!!!!

Cons: BUT...
It is true: it is not perfectly silent!
At times it hums! It took me a while to realise the monitor was the culprit!
Not a major problem, unless you work in a perfectly silent environment.

Other Thoughts: I have been using Dell monitors for more then 10 years and had several of them replaced undre warranty.
Dell was always courteous and, with a deposit of $ 25 to cover the return shipping replaced the questionnable monitors with monitors of equal or better level. One came unmarked and it is only when the driver loaded that I found it was a better one...).
One last word. Do not think that these big monitors can do their best when you support them with a lousyvideo board. There is no miracle....

Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A3K5 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This one replaces a 120 GB on my main.
The first one was on an old HP DV7 1130us which is now super.
I used the cloning soft without any problem on all conversions, including the cloning from 120 to 520 GB.
Not a single glitch.

Cons: The price!

Other Thoughts: On second thoughts, when I read the reviews of the competition, I think this was well spent money....
