Pros: - Owned mine since June (2016) - zero issues - flawless performer
- Notable fps increase over the 980 it replaced and all games at maxed settings now
- Lower Power Requirements
- Works great with my AOC 144Hz monitor -
- Works great with my Oculus
- Future proofed for a long time.
- Its very Quiet
Cons: There aren't really any cons I can give
Other Thoughts: Running on an i7 4790k OC 4.4Ghz - I'm maxed out in settings for all games, playing at 1080 @144Hz, I'm future proofed for quite a while. I lucked out following Newegg on Twitter. Bought mine in June and the price has gone up?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Steam FPS consistently shows consistent high frame rates (used a nVidia 980 - upgraded to 1080)
Decent color range and viewing angles for a TFT screen
Solid weight in the base - no rocking. Good height adjust and minor head swivel up/down.
Aside from gaming, as a general use monitor - its ideal.
I've been using mine for over 8 months - no issues to date.
Cons: I'd advise against using this monitor for editing where color reproduction is very important.
Other Thoughts: if you are looking forward and have a solid PC, and looking into an nVidia 1080; a 1080p monitor might sound a little dated even if its 144Hz.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
