Pros: *Steady at 60+FPS
*Afterburner software is easy to use
*Easy to OC
*Plays everything on ULTRA (or highest setting available) with good framerates
*Nice upgrade from GTX 570
*Came with Games
*Purchased when it was on sale for $450
Cons: Would have liked more than 3GB RAM to prolong future proofing.
Last card had 4xDVI
It's not EVGA?
*1 game that came with was Assassin's Creed, and UBISOFT now requires you to download and use their launcher (UPLAY). Boycotting UBISOFT until they work out their issues with Valve.
Other Thoughts: I almost didn't get this card because I wanted to go back to EVGA cards. My last card was a Galaxy GTX 570, which would occasionally bottleneck on Ultra settings, and came with sketchy software. I'm glad that I took the chance on MSI. Great card!

This review is from: Battlefield 4 Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Mechanical - blues
*Very loud feedback (Cherry MX BLUES)
Bright Orange backlighting
On the fly macros
Cons: Reviewers who buy things without looking at the pictures (keyboard letter fonts for example), buy items they know nothing about and then complain (blue switches are loud), and then vent about the product in the reviews section unfairly when it was them who bought something without researching it.
No option for blue/red/green backlighting.
Other Thoughts: See Cons.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Playing games at 1080p, at 120hz makes games seem seemless, shiny. The matte screen's great when playing during the day (no reflection off the glass). The screen's height is closer to the same as my 22" Samsungs, than my 24" Samsung's was. It looks like it was made to go with them, just wider..
Cons: It took me about 20 minutes of troubleshooting to figure out that I needed to unplug all other monitors that I had hooked up, for the settings to work with 1080p @ 120hz. The highest that I could get before that, even with the dualdvi cable that came with it, was much lower resolution. AGAIN... REMOVE ALL OTHER VIDEO MONITOR CABLES FROM YOUR CARD, THEN ONLY HOOK UP THIS MONITOR FIRST. Get your settings right, then hook up your other monitors.
Other Thoughts: Great monitor overall. I thought about getting the 27", but playing games on larger screens up close is great if you're a casual gamer, but if you're into FPS there's no question that this is the better choice in my opinion. I guess it all depends on how far back your face is from the screen.READ FULL REVIEW
