EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Owned 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.

Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600 BX80646I54590
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Speed
Quad-Core
Price
Intel 4600 graphics

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Replaced my Core 2 Duo E8400 with this CPU. After reviewing performance vs. price, this is an excellent bang-for-your-buck CPU. Performs everything I've thrown against it admirably. I actually used the Intel 4600 graphics for about a month before I purchased an EVGA Geforce 750TI. Onboard graphics were actually pretty good (though I did notice a marked improvement with the EVGA card) and I didn't notice any performance hit. I'm extremely happy with this CPU.

Rig: ASUS H879M motherboard, 8GB DDR3, Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD (boot drive), WD Black 1TB HDD (data drive), Win 8.1 64-bit.

ASUS H97M-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quality Micro-ATX Motherboard
Reasonable Price
Appearance
Performance
Motherboard Utilities

Cons: Could use and additional fan header or two

Other Thoughts: Just assembled a new system using an Intel Core i5-4590 CPU, this motherboard, 8GB of Corsair DDR3 memory, and a Samsung 840 Pro SSD. Put it all together, flipped the power switch and everything just worked. I don't overclock so this H97 motherboard was just what I needed. I'm still adjusting to the UEFI in place of the BIOS I've been used to for 20+ years but it appears to have plenty of settings for those that like to tweak their system (fortunately the manual that came with the motherboard gives a description of the available options).
