BenQ XL2730Z Black-Red 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I recently purchased this and am presently surprised at the quality of the picture. I am running a Nvida 970 card and with BlackOpsIII I am running from 70 to 110 FPS.I was not going to pay the extra cash for the G-sync monitors.There is no tearing or anything other than an awesome picture.

Cons: No G-sync for this price. I guess I will see what the red team throws out in the coming years to see if the Free sync makes a difference.I tried the sound cable from PC to the monitor and had noise issues. Not sure if it is the cable I purchased or the monitor feed to the side plug.I just run from the sound card. No Big Deal.

OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great drive with the 1.0 firmware

Cons: After installing important firmware version 1.03 my drive lost write numbers by 20% and read numbers were OK but occasional drop of30%.Prior to the firmware update the drive was solid.DO NOT UPDATE THE FIRMWARE!!!

Other Thoughts: I have worked with the OCZ support supplied them with data. I think they should send me a drive without an RMA process due to the time I have spent on this diagnostics.

GIGABYTE Radeon R9 280X DirectX 11 GV-R928XOC-3GD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I went from a 6950 to this and saw a huge improvement in 3DMark...went from 3445 to 7100 in firestrike.

Cons: Drivers are not good yet...I have more lag with this card than my 6950 when playing Black OPS 2..Considering returning for 7970.

Other Thoughts: They have a week for better drivers then it goes not release something unless its ready.
