WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price
Mature Technology
WD Quality

Cons: Noone

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd WD Black HDD. The first one I used in a system that I had running nearly constantly for 5 years. Nothing wrong, it still works fine but I decided it was time to build a new system this last year. While I used a SDD for my boot drive (Wow!!!), I didn't hesitate to purchase another WD Black HDD for my data drive. I find them fast and dependable which is what you want in a HDD. I hope the SDD holds up and performs as well over the long term!

XFX XTR Series P1-650B-BEFX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC With Full Modular Cables
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price on sale
Quality construction
Modular build
Manufactured by Seasonic for XFX
Well Boxed

Cons: Not a thing!

Other Thoughts: I assembled my new build in Sept. 2014, built around an Intel i5 4590 quad core processor, ASUS H97M micro-ATX motherboard. the XFX's cabled proved to be plenty long to reach all areas of my case and were easily routed around the case. The computer has run nearly continuously since September and I have had zero problems with the XFX PSU. Feature rich, quality built by Seasonic, I would have no problems recommending this as a great, affordable 650W PSU.

EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small size
Doesn't require additional power connector
Runs cool
Runs everything I throw at it
Frequent driver updates (really, really frequent!)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used this on new system built around an Intel i5-4590 processor and ASUS H97 micro-ATX MB. This is my first nVidia card in quite a few years (had been religious Radeon). While the Intel 4600 graphics were ok, I wanted something better and was put off by problems people have reported with the current crop of Radeon drivers plus the large power overhead on Radeons compared to nVidia card of comparable performance (the additional heat generated being a possible problem with a smaller ATX build). Immediately saw a big improvement over the Intel graphics both in graphics and performance. This little card runs cool in my system, usually under 30 deg. C during average daily use. I'm particularly impressed that EVG/nVidia constantly update their drivers to improve performance on the latest game releases as well as to fix bugs and improve performance (so far it's been about 2x per month). Extremely happy with this card.
