NVIDIA Gift - Watch Dogs
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs horrid console port 01/08/2015

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - Watch Dogs

Pros: None

Cons: Built for consoles and ported to PC

Other Thoughts: If you like a game that scripts every action like a movie, this is for you. Takes no skill or talent to play, just mash a button to hide, hack, attack, etc...

Vivo STAND-V002 Dual LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand Adjustable - Fits 2 Screens 13
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price
Build Quality appears good, we'll see how it wears over time

Cons: Configuration of arms is somewhat limited.
Depth may be a concern if you desk is deep
Mounting Monitors is tricky, better ask a friend to help

Other Thoughts: For under fifty bucks, this is an outstanding purchase. My monitors are off my desk and I have really cleaned up the look and usability of my desk. Not as great as the spring loaded multi-directional arms, but priced right for what they are.

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great feature-set. Easy to setup and configure. I love ASUS. I went with another vendor on my last build and regretted it. In hindsight, I should have sprung for the higher end ASUS board, but this is a very, very good value board.

Intel Chipset offers better video card neutrality. Great mobo to pair with ATI or Nvidia

Cons: Onboard Audio docks this one egg. Mic levels are low and even boosting 30db in Windows 7 does not result in clear mic input, just more static and still poor voice levels. Can be hard for others to hear me when gaming online, especially when in a firefight. I will be ordering an ASUS sound card from Newegg shortly.

I like it better when the PCI-E 8x/4x/1x slots are towards the bottom of the board, but this is a preference not a requirement. PCI still works for sounds just fine.

I will probably pickup this PCI sound card due to PCI-E 4x/1x being too close to the top PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots.

Other Thoughts: Read the manual, the new BIOS options are more complex than the last generation of motherboards, knowledge avoids issues. Electro Static Discharge is a component killer, Install your Power Supply and plug it in, then ground yourself to your case with a strap before doing ANY work on sensitive components. Don't connect the PSU to the motherboard, the point is to ground your chassis to your home ground, and you to the chassis to avoid any chance of ESD. Leave components in the static protective bags until the very last moment possible.

A slow cautious system builder always nets better results than a rushed builder who can't wait to get his new system online.
