Pros: I had been looking at this card for a while and finally decided to just buy it. I had been using a EVGA GTX760 for about 6 months. While still a good card in and of itself, I needed something with some more horsepower for some of the newer titles I have been playing on. I landed on the FTW edition of the GTX970 and wow has it been good. It was not only an upgrade, but in a whole different league as far as performance. I can play all my games on max settings at 60+ fps. This card is exactly what I was looking for.
A few other pros for me:
-Runs cooler than my 760 did
-Uses less power
-Fans are more efficient
I'd recommend this card.
Cons: Nothing of note.
Other Thoughts: As some others have found out, there is some whine with this card under load. It actually made me chuckle when I first heard it as it sounded like a jet engine. After a simple adjustment of the fan curve in the EVGA software, I haven't had any issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was using a 60hz LCD television for my gaming. As I was a casual user, I didn't see much of a need for a higher refresh rate until I started playing some of the latest titles. I jumped in and got this monitor and I was very impressed. The higher refresh rate really does make a difference in almost all the games I play. (Far Cry 4, BF4, Assassin's Creed Black Flag.)
I will probably be getting another in the next few months.
Cons: I haven't found any.
Other Thoughts: Some people who buy this monitor have trouble with the colors. I just went online and found a few handy settings others had come up with and tweaked them to my liking and it looks great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I like this processor. I replaced a FX-4100 that I bought 3 years ago. This was a good upgrade. I haven't gotten to do much with OC'ing yet but I don't see any reason to at the moment. Overall this is a good value and I think AMD is just as capable as its Intel counterparts.
Cons: Runs a little warm. That probably has more to do with my substandard cooler and poor air flow than a problem with the CPU itself.READ FULL REVIEW
