Pros: Just rebuilt my machine with MSI gaming 7 mb and this card. I usually pinch my pennies and go for the *60 (or *60 ti) cards but I decided to just go for the 770 this time. I'm psyched. It looks great in the machine. Matte black and red with Ferrari looking logo matches mb beautifully, really slick design. I've installed all the graphically intensive games I own just to see how it goes. FarCry 3 full settings, runs great. Witcher 2 full, runs great. Crysis 3 not all the way but close, getting around 47 fps. Metro Last Light was a little different, runs 60fps at full if I leave off the advanced PhysX, but if I turn it on then it drops to 17 - 20. Apparently you need a second card to handle JUST the PhysX, seems like a poor optimization to me. But other than that, everythings running great, gorgeous and keeping cool in my system.
Really glad I went for the 770, and really glad I went for the MSI. Looks great, runs great.
Cons: None I can think of, enjoying this card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI Z97-Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Awesome looking board. Very good manual. I like the bios, you can navigate with a mouse and usb wireless mouse and keyboard worked without a hitch when I turned it on.
Feels solidly build, transistors or whatever they are don't stick out far so theres less worry when manhandling the board. Cool matte black board with red accents and ferrari looking logo looks great. I bought MSI's GTX 770 video card as well and the 2 look great together following the same color scheme.
Software utilities seem really well done as well. Command center gives you great fan control for cpu and system (with WPM fans or whatever theyre called).
My build is stable and fast and this board helped make that happen!
Cons: I had one minor hiccup with audio. The realtek drivers needed to be uninstalled and reinstalled. I'm pretty sure this was a windows 7 issue but I figured I'd mention it. Other than that building and running has been a dream. I'm one happy gamer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was pointed to this to my IT friend from work. He says this is the 840 EVOs are the way to go so I grabbed one. Popped it in my new build, installed the OS and Steam on it and went for it. Accidentally had all my images on it for a minute and navigating though huge folders of images is virtually instantaneous. Games load blazingly fast as well. Happy customer.
Cons: I wish the 3.5 adapter version wasn't quite as pricy. I didn't get it because I found adapters for cheaper, but I would've liked to just get it from samsung. Minor complaint though.READ FULL REVIEW
