ASUS GTX680-2GD5 GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Latest and greatest Nvidia card, it does play smooth everything you'll throw at it, and it better for $500. After installing the ASUS OC utility, GPU-Z does recognize the correct bus, PCI express 3, which is not what I've seen in TomH and X-bit reviews, and, that is great news.

Cons: price and availability.

Other Thoughts: Made the mistake of buying 2 day shipping with rush fee. card arrived in 4. Thought Newegg has the greatest shipping and receiving in the world, I guess I was wrong.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Ivy Bridge compatible, 3 USB3 headers on the board, Realtek 898, dual lan, down to earth price. Instalattion was a breeze. I always wanted an Asus board, but this is just unbeatable. Dropped a 3770k, was recognized without a bios update. Intel lan and ALC898 are impressive. SATA controllers set default is AHCI for SSD.

Cons: Bios ( or UEFI) seems a bit hard to use when it comes to memory: XMP profile, 1333, 1600 settings. Not a big deal, I'll update it anyway.

Other Thoughts: If you know what you are looking for this board is hard to pass. In my opinion, one of the best Z77 boards. OC is available and works, cpu multiplier, FSB, it's all there. To early to push the CPU to the limit, easy to get 4Ghz on stock Intel heatsink. Very nice system monitoring status pages. Pair with Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model KHX1866C9D3K4/16GX

PNY XLR8 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD3-1600-X8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Rebate arrived in 29 days since purchased, impressive. PNY really cares about their customers, my next video card or memory will be nothing but PNY. Send a rebate to Zotac too, never got a email from them yet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: In the original review I stated a 5.5 in WEI. Since then I tried the other memory slots and a 9 setting for CAS instead of the XMP, still end up with 5.5. I see other people getting a 7.4 in WEI. Maybe is the MOBO, ASROCK Z68.
