MSI GAMING N750 TF 1GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great set of features at a super price. I have used several MSI products over the years and have always found them to be of fine quality. Sips power. Been a long-time NVidia customer thanks in a large part to their great driver support.

Cons: I was a few days early for today's price drop of $15 and the increased rebate for purchasing on 3/9. On the other hand I have the card and am using it, so a minor con -- it was a good deal then and an even better one today.

Other Thoughts: I deployed this card in a living-room PC hooked to a big screen. It is an upgrade from an XFX 9800GTX, which has been in use in a couple of generations of machines here. It is used for both viewing DVD/Blueray and streaming content as well as light gaming.

Low power consumption and low noise aspects are great. The old card was only audible under heavy load but was rated at 156 watts and was thirsty enough to require two 6-pin supplemental power connections.

The latest (2/18) NVidia driver (334.89) was appropriate for my old 9800GTX as well as this one so I installed that before swapping the new card in.

The rear bracket has some extra hardware in addition to the usual bent sheet steel piece, so if you have the type of tool-free card retention clips as I do in my Enermax case you may need to use old-school screws to secure this card.

The image on the enclosed postcard seemed misleading as to the location of the dual-BIOS switch. On this card it is not at the bracket end, but on the tail-end near the pads for the non-existent supplemental power connector.

The included software is looking good and I am looking forward to trying out the Predator screen capture utility. The LiveUpdate app also seems to be useful, but watch out for partner software that you may want to skip like Norton and SafeSync.

I haven't done any serious performance testing but WEI for graphics and gaming graphics both increased from 6.9 to 7.5 with this upgrade.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Stability, styling, G-Skill reputation

Cons: Price is high right now

Other Thoughts: I chose a pair of these for a build back in 2012 with a AMD Zambezi and M5A97 mobo. Everything went together without a hitch and has been in near-continuous use as a home theater system and couch-computer.

Since I am doing a bit of video editing for DVD authoring I am looking at additional memory and plan to pick-up another pair when on sale at an attractive price.

PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 600 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ600MXSP)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Modular cables, open grille on back, quiet, stable power.

Cons: Fan pulls air IN, so you need to put a filter over the grille to keep dust out of your system. Slow rebate processing.

Other Thoughts: Got this in June with a $30 rebate. It's now September and I just got notification that my rebate has been processed and should see my rebate card in 8-10 more weeks.
