This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC 3GB GV-N1060IXOC-3GD Video Card
Pros: small footprint, quiet, low power draw for performance, pretty much as good as anything in the 900 series @ 1080p. Went from 660gtx and glad I skipped the last generation. A very noticeable upgrade.
Cons: not 6gb but I game @ 1080 and below not a big con for me. By the time I need 4k I'll probably have a new computer. This card will give you plenty of mainstream performance and slightly older games run like glass. I have a Ivy bridge xeon 3.1 ghz and 12g ram have not had a complaint yet. This would be a good solution for a small footprint computer to run Battlefield 1 at decent settings.
Other Thoughts: This is my second Gigabyte card and I think they are a good hardware provider. I used the rma process on my 660gtx thinking the card was dead after a power outage. I didn't realize the bios reset on my mb to onboard. The customer service and response time was good even though it was my bad. They even cleaned the card after testing it. The quick no hassle response earned a repeat customer. The gtx is still kicking and will be put to use in another computer. The fan design and build quality are excellent too.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Olympus PEN E-PL3 Black 12.3MP Digital Camera with 14-42mm Lens
Pros: for the money probably the best deal out there. All in one compacts can be more expensive and still don't deliver the same image quality. Micro 4/3rds is compact yet powerful and can be expanded with after market lenses. If you are coming from an average compact this epl3 will blow you away.
Cons: wonky interface takes some time to get used to. There are full manual controls yay! No front handgrip. Sensors in newer models handle low light better but you will not be able to buy those cameras at this price-point. Prime lenses are expensive.
Other Thoughts: A great entry level digital camera. Not as bulky as a dslr. Well built by Olympus. If your expectations are realistic this camera is an excellent buy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stable and cool not as loud as I thought it would be. Smokes most of the 500 series so it is an excellent value.
Still playing some older games like bfbc 2 and can run it @ 1080 with ease. Might have to ease up on settings for bf3 but thats to be expected.
Cons: big but should fit in most cases do your research.
Other Thoughts: Nvidia is upping their game so to speak very pleased. Good deal now with free shipping.READ FULL REVIEW
