MSI GeForce GTX 960 DirectX 12 GTX 960 2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The card only uses one 6pin connector so its ideal for small form factor PCs. I bought this card to fill a very specific purpose. I have an older Alienware X51 with a 330Watt PSU. This card runs perfectly for that need. I can even OC it and still not exceed the power draw. If you have a low power PSU, consider this card.

Cons: The card is only going to get you decent 1080p performance.
More of a side grade for some older PC's
With 2GB, You're not exactly future proofing your system

Other Thoughts: If your need a low power GPU and are building a small form factor gaming PC, this card should do the trick.

Pros: I purchased two of these on 5/31/2011 - Yes 2011. They both are OC'd to 4.8GHz and are running solid and reliable on air cooling. I'm running EVGA SC 640GTX running Titanfall @ max settings. See my system specs below - I built a system with i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz in 2013 and only achieved 4.4GHz.

Cons: Virtually no cons with the exception that the price has barely changed for such an old CPU. Consider that newer CPUs (i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz) are priced the same. If you are looking for Long Term, this chips bast days may be behind it, but it's more OC friendly then newer Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Other Thoughts: I've not had systems as future proofed as these were. Sys specs when built in 2011 - ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME (REV 3.0) - Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 Sleeve Bearing 200mm - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) - CORSAIR Gold AX1200. Originally had a EVGA 580GTX upgraded to 680GTX

2 out of 5 eggs Tight fit on the ears and Tiny Sound 07/03/2012

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1100 3.5mm/ USB Connector Supra-aural Communication Headset

Pros: Very solid chord - doesn't feel cheap or flimsy
Volume and mic controls are at a good length from the headset
Plastic construction overall is solid, lightweight and feels sturdy
More solid construction than the Logitech G330

Cons: Sound is not impressive - compared against the Logitech G330 the sound lacks mid range or base response
There is no way to widen the head band so the headphones push a little too snugly on the ears. If you have hair partially over your ears, you'll be in for an even tighter fit.

Other Thoughts: I purchased these on a Newegg sale deal for $24.99 and at that price I'm not satisfied.
The sound quality is Frequency response is supposed to be 20Hz–20KHz yet my Logitech G330 headset delivers much better mid range and lows and is rated at 40 Hz–18 kHz

The angle of the ear pieces is too snug and there is no way to widen them. Wearing them for extended periods pressed against your ears starts to feel uncomfortable.

At the full $39.99, I can't recommend these - you should definitely consider another brand/model
