EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, 08G-P4-6180-KR, 8GB GDDR5X, LED, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

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?


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.

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.
