Microsoft Windows 10 Home - Full Version 32 & 64-Bit (Download)
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Saved me a little money 08/02/2016

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Home - Full Version 32 & 64-Bit (Download)

Pros: Cheaper than going through the Windows store. Didn't have to wait for shipping.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Download the Windows 10 Crain till from Microsoft and create a USB installer. Install from that and then copy paste the code when you get the email. No problems with install. Probably the last painful install I've ever done.

G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works most of the time. I'm able to game and go about most tasks without interruptions.

Cons: Getting BSOD errors, mostly when waking from sleep, but also when using the web browser.

Other Thoughts: Memtest86 shows only about 6 errors, however this is enough to give me headaches. I keep having trouble with this company's products, and their website doesn't have anything useful other than a forum. Learned my lesson. Not buying from G.Skill after this. I see other users are posting reviews with the same BSOD when waking from sleep.

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Virtually silent. Fan turns off when not needed.

Cons: Huge. I mean, I expected it to be big, but the card will not allow a case fan on the side door, and blocks the adjacent PCI Express X1 slot. Ordering a slim fan to see if THAT will fit, and fortunately my motherboard has an X1 slot above the first X16 slot. There is a bright white LED near the power connector that is always on. I do not know its purpose other than decorative, but it would be more visually appealing if it were illuminating a logo and a bit dimmer.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like this card. I don't GTA V... But I can run any game I do own on max settings at 2560 x 1600 on a 30" monitor.
