MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Easily overclocked to 1550 MHz without raising voltage.
-4GB RAM, all graphic intensive future games will utilize this.
-NO coil whine (buy a reputable PSU guys...) Even a 650W Rosewill Hive suffices. 40 bucks.
-Silent up to 60°C, but can easily be changed with Afterburner. Nice for Dota, great for Far Cry 4.
-I've thrown Ultra settings at the card with all the latest games and there may be some stutters, but the performance you get at this price, it's going to be unbeatable for awhile.

Cons: I got it the week it came out and it's still the same price so no regrets. I'm becoming more and more MSI inclined with every computer I build and sell.

Other Thoughts: Rig:
Silverstone TJ08-E w/ window
i-5 4690k
MSI Z97M Gaming
16GB CORSAIR Vengeance 1600 CAS 8
Corsair H80i CPU coooler
500GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD
256GB Corsair Force LX SSD
256GB Crucial MX100 SSD
1TB WD Black HD
Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 650W
MSI GTX 970 Gaming
CORSAIR Vengeance Airflow Memory cooling fan
Corsair Air Series SP 120
ENERMAX UCTA18A-R 180mm Red LED Case Fan

Keep calm and Micro ATX on.

COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Moves a ton of air. No vibration. Pleasant swift sound.

Cons: Price? But there's usually a rebate/discount every other week. Custom PC builder here and so far I've bought nearly 20 of these for around $5 a pop.

Other Thoughts: Compared to Coolermaster and XIGMATEK 4 packs, just wait for deals on these and you can get them for around 5 bucks a pop. Not only do they blow what I feel to be at least twice as much air, they have sleeved cords, rubber mounts, and orange just works. Two of theses in a push/pull setup on a radiator = win for me.

XFX FX775AZNJ4 Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR5 CI-Express 3.0 x16 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for my needs 09/10/2013

This review is from: XFX FX775AZNJ4 Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR5 CI-Express 3.0 x16 Video Card

Pros: - Quiet
- Low power consumption
- Doesn't need external power connection
- Dual Link DVI port
- Able to Hybrid Crossfire with AMD's A10-5800k 7660D internal card (it CAN be done using display driver 12.104, not the newest beta drivers)
- Can play LFD 2 on 1920 x 1200 maxed out
- FarCry 3 - 1920 x 1200 on medium to high settings gets about 30 fps

Cons: - Wish the VGA port was either another HDMI or DVI. Running triple monitors one will be lower quality
- Might be a con for some people but takes 2 slots. No big deal for my as I'm running a mini ATX MB with only one PCI-E slot

Other Thoughts: If you're trying to Hybrid Crossfire this with one of AMD's newer APUs, make sure dual graphics is enable in your bios and you remove ALL ATI and AMD display drivers/folders/registries and get the 5/29/2013 version of Catalyst software Suite with the 12.104 drivers. You should then see the option for dual graphics in the Catalyst Vision Center. It took me 2 days to figure this out so I hope this helps someone. You should get about a 30% increase with this Crossfire.

My setup is used for medium to moderate gaming. I don't ever expect to max out settings on newer games.

- W8 Pro 64 bit
- Antec VSK-3000 Case
- AMD A10-5800k OC'd to 4.2 GHz
- MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 FM2 Motherboard
- 1 x 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600
- XFX Radeon HD 7750 (this is the Core Edition)
- Vantec Thermoflow 92mm intake fan

Entire build was under $400 after rebates.
