ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: *Relatively Large As Far As Computer Monitors Go: The pictures DO NOT do this monitor justice. This thing is PERFECTLY large. I love playing games on this thing - it's so immersive and the colors look gorgeous.
*1920x1080
*Bright!
*Lightweight
*No dead pixels.

Cons: *Power cable in back is kinda easy to undo.
*Glossy, so fingerprint heaven.
*Gets dust on it really easily.
*Buttons are a bit weird, but they work.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a 2003 Viewsonic 17inch 4:3 1280x1024 VG710b. This thing is WAY better than my old monitor!

GIGABYTE GV-N560UD-1G GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: *Runs my most demanding games at Ultra everything for 1920x1080 at above 40fps. (GTA 4, Skyrim, Empire: Total War, Shogun 2: Total War, Company of Heroes, Battlefield: Bad Company 2.)
*Runs COOL. Custom fan design seems better than reference AND IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A JET ENGINE. 100% demand after 60 minutes yielded only 75C (the thermal limit is 98C).
*Overclocks nicely. This card is stable with a 912mhz core, 2094mhz memory bus. (Seems to be my limit. 920mhz causes lock up and artifacts.) After 60 minutes, the card only gets to 80C with this overclock.

Cons: *1024mb is barely enough memory to run Today's games on Ultra without running out of memory. You might have to turn down the settings because of the memory limit, not because of framerate issues.
*At $215, it's expensive.
*Folding@Home's GPU program doesn't seem to work with this card, but that's the fault of those developers.
*Bottlenecked by my AMD Athlon II X4 645. There are performance gains over my GTS 250, but not nearly the substantial ones one would see with a better platform. (Perhaps an overclocked Phenom II X4 BE, or maybe one of those new Intel i5's would have the remarkable gains).
*OVERCLOCKING VOIDS WARRANTY - BUT THAT'S A GIVEN FOR MOST CARDS. DO NOT OVERCLOCK UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE RISKS.

Other Thoughts: It's pretty good. I'm glad I replaced my GTS250 for this card. Bottleneck is less of an issue at 1920x1080, and the Direct X11 performance gains are nice. It's not four times better with my platform though. I'd wager twice as good as the GTS250 due to my processor's bottleneck.
