MSI R9 270X GAMING 2G Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This card is fast, performs great in all of my games so far pretty much. No crashes, no blue screens, no problems. Nice image quality.

Cons: I do have one game that doesn't want to cooperate with this card, but it's a pretty old game: Neverwinter Nights 1. I'm still trying to figure out a workaround for this. However, in all of my new or newish games, it's flawless. That was the only dud. No big deal.

Other Thoughts: I just installed the new Catalyst 13.12 drivers that came out, and it's preforming well. I was running the 13.11 betas for a while as well with no problems. I think I did notice the rare screen jump issue in some 2d games with the betas but I haven't seen anything yet on the 13.12 WHQL.

I can definitely recommend this card, price/performance ratio is perfect in my opinion.

GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a solid board, is has a nice array of options in the bios and it's rock solid. I simply unpacked the motherboard, installed it, hooked everything up, turned it on and it just worked.

Cons: Only con I can think of is it only has 1 pci x16 slot, the other one is a x4, but that's no big deal to me since I have no plans on running Crossfire or SLI.

Other Thoughts: I can definitely recommend this board, it's as stable as a rock for me so far and has everything I need.

AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This thing is pretty fast, especially for the price. It's got 6 cores and it overclocks to 4 ghz on stock voltage; meaning a free overclock with minimal to no additional heat output.

My old CPU was a Phenom 8750 triple core and this blows it away, encoding a movie in Handbrake took about 1-1.5 hours, now it only takes 10 minutes.

This CPU also runs pretty cool, I am currently running it on the stock cooler with Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste and it idles at 30c and 58c on load at 4 ghz. Note: I do have decent airflow in my case.

This CPU seems to eat all of my games for breakfast too, 60+ fps in everything.

Cons: Only thing I can note is that I would recommend installing the Bulldozer hotfixes from Microsoft for Windows 7. Other than that, none. This thing performs admirably.

Other Thoughts: As I said, the CPU can overclock to 4 ghz on stock voltage with the stock cooler and performs just fine in terms of cooling as long as you stay on stock voltage. If you want to go beyond 4 ghz, you will need to increase the voltage; in this case, get a aftermarket cooler. I do plan on getting one before summer.
