Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Within about 5 minutes of turning this thing on for the first time at a pretty low level, the wife was complaining.

Very powerful, a bit more powerful than I was expecting, actually. I paid $99 for this, definitely worth it. Some of the comments were saying that this was fairly low powered, or that it couldn't fill a living room.

WHAT? Maybe if you're feeding in a garbage signal or something, but this thing can fill a large living room without a problem. Some people insist on literally only hearing the bass when playing music. If that's your goal, this *might* not be powerful enough for you, but, otherwise, this is great.

This thing shakes all the walls in my house. I see people were complaining about rattle. The only rattle I get is from the walls, desks, pictures, and just about everything else. If you think this subwoofer has rattle, you're probably just rattling other things.

Cons: It comes with a cover over the speaker part and looks very nice. After pulling it off twice, one of the tabs broke in the hole. This was a pain, but nothing some pliers and super-glue wouldn't fix.

Other Thoughts: I am using this for my office room, which is about 10" x 15", though it can be heard everywhere in the house, and even if you go outside.

I use for music and for games. Definitely enhances the experience for Battlefield or Elite Dangerous.

GIGABYTE GV-N980G1 GAMING-4GD GTX 980 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, smooth... the best.

SLI with the Oculus Rift in mind.

I wasn't sure about dishing out the money for this card. I've always been a proponent of buying "the second best," because you pay a premium for the best.

I mainly bought this card to be used with the Oculus Rift DK2 and eventually the consumer edition, since you can use the 900 series to SLI with the Oculus rift, thus getting 4K res per eye ball. It's really a "take my money" kind of thing.

It was at that point that I pulled the trigger. I still only have one of these, but I'll buy the next one with the OR consumer model.

Split DVI and all the DP ports you could probably want, especially if you had 2, or 3 of these.

Cons: Not the biggest fan of the giant bold "WINDFORCE" blaring through the side of my case.

Price is high, but you pay a premium for the best.

The only real con I would say is the VRAM. I am surprised people are even buying 2gb VRAM versions. I'd expect this card to house 8gb of ram.

W/E though. I have no idea what people are doing to max out even one of these right now, so who cares.

Other Thoughts: I've read a few complaints about the thickness, saying you cannot SLI 3 of these. I couldn't even 3-way SLI GTX 560s without some serious bending going on with the ASRock xtreme4. It should be little surprise that 3-way SLI with this card is going to be a challenge. That said, get a true full-size mobo and you'll have a field day.

I've used this card mainly for the Oculus Rift with Elite Dangerous. I was previously using a GTX 560 with 2gb vram.

The GTX 560 actually performed quite well for a while, pushing ~ 20-30 FPS which was acceptable. Then came some updates, and suddenly 10 FPS... or worse. It was freeze every 5 seconds. This makes you want to puke with the Rift.

Basically, I had no choice but to upgrade for my health. Had to do it right and get the best, again, for my health.

There's no lag with this card and the rift. I am pushing 100+ FPS now. Looking side to side with the Rift is smooth as butter, compared to the jutters before. Really nice.

Can't wait for 4K per eye SLI.

CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Tons of cables, and comes with only the necessities pre-plugged in (by pre plugged, I mean "built in" so you cannot actually remove them), giving you the option of plugging in the extras for powering pci/cpu or not. So there are plugs on the PSU itself to add more cables (which come with the PSU). That's awesome!

My old PSU basically forced me to have a bunch of "loose ends" plugged into nothing, then, as I upgraded, forced me to do some hack work to get enough plugs, and it was a mess.

Came with enough cables to max out the PSU and power more than a single mobo should need. Powers a 3930k, gtx 980 and gtx 560, water cooler, bunch of fans, all 4 ram slots, and 6 hard drives.

Cons: None.
