ASUS GTX650-E-2GD5 GeForce GTX 650 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plug-N-Play with Windows 7 Pro x64 on GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA motherboard ( N82E16813128594 ). Raised my Windows Experiance Index from 4.3 to 7.3

Solid card with flawless vider rendering at full-screen HD. NVIDIA Control Center exposes many features and aspects for manipulation & tuning. BTW: Default settings work fine for now.

Cons: None: see "Other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: I purchased this board in order to improve video performance on my latest build ( GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA motherboard, i5-4570S 2.9G CPU, 8GB G.SKILL DDR3 1600 memory, Kingston V300 Seried SSD boot drive ). Video was the lowest score in Windows Experiance Index with a 4.3 Video now scores 7.3

On first startup with this card Windows loaded Standard VGA single screen and took longer than expected to load drivers for the card. After reboot dual screens were auto detected and driven at proper resolutions. Oddley enough this card takes longer to load the dual screens than the 1/2GB NVIDIA Card it replaces.

This card takes a lot of room in the case as the trailing edge of the fan housing extends past the end of the card by almost an inch. and the height of the fan housing comes close to blocking the next slot on my MB. No problem as the GIGABYTE mb has plenty of slots and I'm running just a couple of add-on cards.

GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excelent Customer Service from GIGABYTE My original MB sent unstable after 31 days with intermit boot failures, hangs etc. and it seemed to be a deteriorating situation: I lost confidence in the board. I called GIGABYTE Cust. Support and they willingly sent me a replacement once I explained the symptoms and my concerns. I pre-paid for the replacement in order to have it shipped prior to returning the suspect MB and was promptly refunded once they received the original MB. The replacement has been a solid performed ( see my original review 9/11/2013 ) for some 6 months now: GREAT Customer Service and a GREAT Product.

Cons: MB went "unstable" after 31days NewEgg would not take as return / replace so I turned to GIGABYTE

Other Thoughts: I'll be reccomending GIGABYTE to anyone who asks.

ASUS M2N-E AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 4+ years and going strong 10/25/2013

This review is from: ASUS M2N-E AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: MB is solid and reliable: been running for 4+ years. After a boot drive fail I'm rebuilding as a Hard Drive farm. Took Windows 7 Pro x64 without a hitch. Plenty of no-board fan headers. 6 SATA connectors.

Cons: Only one IDE Header

Other Thoughts: Super MB layout for me to take advantage of all the "old" IDE drives I've got laying around. With only one on-board IDE I'm using one Koutech PIR133 PCI IDE Controller Card for RAID ( two 1T Stripes ) and a couple of StarTech 2port PCI cards. With the fan headers and a modified CoolMaster case I'll be spinning a minimum of ten drives within a fan packed wind tunnle....
