HP Smartbuy LV2311 Black 23
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great Value - Great Performance 11/18/2013

This review is from: HP Smartbuy LV2311 Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor

Pros: Great monitor for the price. Works well for gaming, including games like CS GO. Highly recommended.

Cons: none

PNY VCGGTX650T1XPB GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Performance is fantastic for the price. Getting 230 FPS average on CS GO with visual settings maxed out and 1440x900 resolution.

Card is relatively small, but that's a good thing!

Cons: Not a con necessarily, but something to be aware of is the clock speeds during game play. I can't say for sure this was a problem specific to the driver or CS GO, but this is my experience.

The game would occasionally drop FPS from ~200 FPS to ~25. This was very intermittent so I brushed it off at first. After a while I decided to install GPUZ so I could monitor clock speeds, temps, etc.

To my surprise I discovered that the GPU and Memory clocks were dropping during game play to the minimum speeds (power saving). This certainly explained why I was seeing the random FPS drops.

I was able to easily fix this problem by going into Nvidia control panel and changing the mode from "Adaptive" to "Performance". Now, anytime the game is loaded, whether I'm playing actively or not, the GPU and memory clocks are 100%, and I've yet to see the problem pop back up.

Again, this is more specific to Nvidia drivers and/or CS GO and not necessarily the card itself. Others have had the same problem with different Nvidia cards.

Antec Basiq BP-350B 350W Continuous Power ATX12V Version 2.01 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Stable voltages. Long cables with plenty of molex connectors.

Cons: The housing for the unit seems very cheap and flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this psu for Basic computers, or older machines that don't use much power.

I also have seen this PSU at other big store retailers for 40+ dollars.
