GIGABYTE GV-N660OC-2GD GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Made the purchase after reading favorable reviews at techpowerup & tomshardware, and since then have found those write-ups to be accurate and on-point.

This card runs cool, at Max Settings w/ a ton of graphical mods (Flora Overhaul, SMIM, etc) in Skyrim the fan speed barely ramps up, and temps sit nicely in the mid 50's.

Cons: None to say. YMMV installing (physically) it, depending on how cramped or not your rig's interior is.

I had a smidgen of trouble getting one of my Enermax's PCIe power cables to reach around to where the port is located on the card, which is the side, not the end, although that may be actually easier to get to again depending on you've routed your cables.

Pros: It works. It quickly reads CDs and DVDs. It was very affordable at the time of purchase (11/22/12): $18.

Cons: None noted so far.

Other Thoughts: I write my reviews as I observe and use components - this was purchased for a new build back in Nov '11, but I only actually got around to testing with a DVD in the last month.

Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Just an update, I couldn't edit my previous review, this addresses the SSD not showing up under My Computer.

Cons: Just an update, I couldn't edit my previous review, this addresses the SSD not showing up under My Computer.

Other Thoughts: The SSD was not recognized under My Computer when I booted, although it was there under Device Manager and the BIOS.

I did some research at the Kingston support site:

Open disk management, initialize the drive, then create a new simple volume to format and partition it. (Windows 7)
