Pros: Great card while it worked. Owned since Oct. 2011 and the card had worked flawlessly... until...... see cons!
Cons: A few days ago... while on the phone, left a game open on a menu screen. Seen the temp's running at 90C but didnt think anything of it, suddenly, computer shuts of completely and wont turn back on. Disconnected all cables except GPU, and main motherboard power and turned it back on. Loud pop from the gpu and a flame shot up near the back of the card near the PCI-e power connectors. Luckily I still have my old 8800GTS and the computer is running fine, so it didn't take anything else out with it.
Other Thoughts: EVGA was very helpful as the card was still under warranty. I have RMA'd the card with them and should be getting something different in a couple weeks. The card was also mislabled as all the stickers said it was a GTX 560ti card. The EVGA forums mentioned quite a few people who have gotten these mislabled cards and noted that the heatsink/fan on them is not the right one, making those particular cards run much hotter than they otherwise should. Be wary if you find one of these cheap someplace. You may kick yourself down the road if you end up with one like mine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative Inspire T3130 2.1 Speakers
Pros: Love the way they sound, even with a bad speaker (see cons). They aren't the most amazing speakers on the planet, but they do produce good bass, decent mids, and highs. Not bad for the price.
Cons: Purchased a set from somewhere else, just purchased a new set from here. The first set had a bad right speaker enclosure that created a bad static hiss when a range between 200Hz and 750Hz was played at low to moderate volume.
Other Thoughts: Haven't received my new set from Newegg yet. Returning the first set as soon as they arrive. I'm hoping that a second chance with these will go much better, because I really liked the sound they produce, even with the bad right channel.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card, runs everything at high quality or higher. Paired with a Phenom II X4 955 OC'd to 3.6 GHz. Most demanding games on my system are MW3 and Skyrim, MW3 runs at max settings at 1920x1080, Skyrim at High Settings with 2x AA and 8x Anisotropic Filtering at 1920x1080.
WEI - 7.8 both Aero and Gaming scores.
Cons: Can run hotter than I'd like under load, roughly 70C. Video drivers crashed at first, but latest 296.10 drivers seem to have solved that issue.
Other Thoughts: Got this OC'd at 900Mhz GPU Clock and 2150 Memory clock.
GPU-Z rates at 12.6 G/Pixel Pixel Fillrate. 50.4 G/Texel Texture Fillrate. With a memory bandwidth of 137.6 GB/s
For the price, fantastic card with high OC capability.
Idle temp runs around 32-38C (depending on ambient temp)
Load temp runs around 60-72C (again depending on ambient temp and the game being played)
