PNY VCGGTX9704XPB GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card (G-SYNC Support)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: A great card.
Plays all my games maxed.
Direct-X 12 (when Win 10 is available)
Hangs with the R9 290/290x , better than R9 270-280x , and draws less power.
The main seller for me was that I could max out Battlefield 4.
The card is also pretty quiet.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I was and still am an AMD dude , but their graphics cards nowadays draw WAY too much power. I needed a new GPU , and if I was going to stick with AMD/ATI I'd have to upgrade my PSU , which is more than I want to spend at this time. So I bit my lip and looked at nVidia. Found this , and have been blown away.

BF4 (and BF3) plays flawlessly maxed out , and when the new Star Wars Battlefront comes out , this card should do well too.
Especially using Direct-X 12 and Windows 10.

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good everyday laptop with plenty of storage.
Has some "zip" to it.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: a good everyday laptop for anyone.

AMD Athlon X4 860K Quad-Core 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD860KXBJABOX Desktop Processor (BLACK EDITION)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good strong , cheap quad core with ability to over clock.
Plays games just fine (assuming you have a decent video card).
Does NOT run too hot.
Good multi-tasker.

I've had it for a month and like it.

Cons: Anytime I over clock , Battlefield 3 and 4 will occasionally crash.
This happens weather or not overclocked from 3.8 to 4.0.
(Graphics cards running stock clock)
Only happens when gaming and over clocked.

Other Thoughts: WAS concerned about high temps , but SPECCY was lying to me. It was showing me temps up to 80 when I had the system set to shut off at 70. My cpu never gets over 41 deg according to coretemp. I am using the stock cooler and overclock to 4.0 when NOT gaming. Works just fine. I have it in a Micro ATX mini tower with 6 fans though so... Great at multitasking. When I'm not gaming , I run a few music programs and synth/midi programs while recording in real time all from one machine. Not one hiccup.
I definitely recommend this CPU.
It a value powerhouse.
