Pros: great size and connections. It was just what I needed for my trading PC. DVi, Displayport are what I needed for the monitors I use. Did not use the hdmi connection
Cons: Died on me after six months. One day the PC was just dead and would not power on or boot up with the card installed. Originally thought it was ny PSU, but when I transferred the card to another PC with known good PSU and it did the same thing, well then I knew it was the video card.
Other Thoughts: Also, I don't know which is correct,. But, in the description of the GTX750Ti sc here on Newegg it says that only a 300+ watt psu is needed. So I bought Seagate 550w Gseries and figured it was good to go. Later when using the Newegg PSU calculator it says I need a 850watt psu to use this card. So I don't know if this had anything to do with why the card died so soon or not. Either way it worked for 6 months with the 550w psu and then died. Threw away the box after a few months so probably will not bother with RMA or warranty. I just won't buy EVGA video cards again. I had this same experience in the past when my EVGA 8800 GT died on me after only about six months.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: this is an update to my previous review. Turns out I was wrong on the PSU dying. It seems my EVGA GTX750TI was the culprit. After my PC would not boot up I pulled everything out and installed into a back up PC that I knew had a good PSU and the same thing happened. Nothing would power up. Took the video card out and it powered up
Now the thing is, is that when I bought the gtx750ti in the descriptions it said only needed 300watt psu. I figured this PSU was good to go at 550w. Later after using the PSU calculator I find out that GTX750ti needs an 850watt PSU. So I don't know if this is the reason why the card died or if the psu is just loosing it's ummpph. Anyway after taking the video card out of the system the PSU works using onboard graphics and the system boots up.
Cons: None, seems to be powering my PC again.
Other Thoughts: I was wrong ,but will probably just by the x series next time. I still think Seagate makes the best PSU's I've ever used.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: nice looking case and will work nicely for me... although... see con
Cons: I bought this case a little over a month ago, but due to circumstances I am just now getting around to building the pc. I have now found that the case packaging was short the accessories and manual. I've had to scrounge around for screws ,standoff etc.. I'm sure before I'm finished there will be something else that would have been nice to have that I should have received, since I forked over the dough for everything that is supposed to be included. This kind of turns me off to Silverstone now. Or it could be that Newegg sent me a previously retuned item that was missing the bag of goodies. I wouldn't doubt it. Any way not super happy about this purchase, but it is a nice case. Also would have been nice to have the emblem that comes in the bag. Although now since no "Silverstone" emblem I don't have to be reminded that "Silverstone" ripped me a little and didn't give me everything I paid for.READ FULL REVIEW
