ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good looking. Comes with backplate unlike others. Single power connector required, which is kind of good for cable management if you have modular PSU. Best card for 1080p right now, even with VRAM issues, since AMD is yet to come with a good enough competing product (hoping their 300 series puts some competition for our greater good).

Cons: 2 biggest issues with this card and after extensive research, I am pretty much sure this is either a fault with Nvidia 970 itself or just Asus 970 versions.

1. Blank display output -- Sometimes my monitor loses connection through HDMI. I have to replug the cable to get connection back. I used different cables and I also used my onboard gpu to see whether the issue is with my monitor or cables. But I am now sure something is wrong with the outputs, since I never get any issues with onboard graphics. Various people have posted about this missing connection through HDMI or Displayport connection. So this is a widespread issue.

2. The card sags down due to its weight in your casing. My card is already bent down on the other side due to its weight and i am wondering whether this might have any effect on it in the long run. I have heard this is a common issue with Asus cards. I am not sure as this is my first Asus card, but it seems likely Asus should have engineered the card properly. I dont think EVGA versions sag down like this.

Other Thoughts: I think you should be careful about hdmi/displayport issue (it could be 970 issue) and the fact that card will get slightly bent in the long run due to its weight.

GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: If you listen to reviews from people like Horatiu R. (2 reviews before me), then you should really get out of building custom pc on your own. I mean seriously? You will install a 1155 socket cpu on a 1150 motherboard and then complain about bent pins? What does Gigabyte have to do with this?

Cons: Ok back to product review. Only negative is this board is not full ATX board. The width is little bit smaller. I am not sure why Gigabyte would cut corners here. I mean how much money are you saving seriously?

Antec TruePower Classic series TP-650C 650W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought it in Black Friday for $60. At this price, it was a great deal for 80 plus gold psu. Great output at 12V+ rail (separate rails for your graphics card which is just what you need). No noise at all. I have GTX 770 and AMD FX 8320

Cons: None so far. Modular would have nice. But I have great casing with good cable management. It might be an issue for those with small cases.

Other Thoughts: If you find this psu in deal, grab it.
