Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nice price!

Cons: WILL DIE IN UNDER 2 years I bought it in the end of 2013 now in the end of 2014 it is at 3% health according to Hard Disk Sentinel.The disk write speed is perfect but over 286 bad sectors on the surface disk. I don't know if it was due to the delivery standard of it being in a brown box with bubble wrap as it's only protection or what! I have 3 other western digital Hard drives that are 2 to 7 years old and according to Hard Disk Sentinel they are at 100% health with an average temp of 84°F-93°F(28°C-34°C) but oddly enough a Seagate Pipeline ST3500414CS 500GB 16MB Cache 3.5" SATA2 Hard Drive I removed from an HD cable box is working fine! "Gofigure!" the 1TB HDD should be the same quality of that Pc/DVR HDD. SO Buy at your own risk but I'd Stay clear of the 1TB Segate. The pipe line series and Industrial grade may be a completely different story! "Good Luck!"

Other Thoughts: was looking in to the 6Tb version of this HDD but now with my current results I really pressed for reliability!

EVGA 03G-P4-2884-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

Pros: This card is amazing! it does all that it says. WARNING your PC may not recognize the card at first. Keep you old graphic card in (If you have one) and go to the Nvidia sight (down grade to driver 331.65 at first then put in the 780 Ti and then up grade to driver 337.88. Breath taking plus the little secret is the old card becomes a GDDR support ram card with PhysX and openCL features SLI'ed at the MSI afterburner really make this thing REALLY JUMP it stays super cool in my case (air cooled) Roswill Thore case."AWESOME" i am at 1806Mhz memory clock and a boost clock of 1187MHz maybe i can get 2000Mhz's out of this thing but I am not pushing it I HAVE ABSOLUTELY no NEED to push the bus that hard. I AM IN LOVE.....LOL

Cons: Doesn't come with a back plate so I ordered one the same time of card purchase. Also may not be recognized by UEFI mother boards at first since UEFI is a non changing system quite an oxymoron for a Pc gamer and Enthusiast builder. (BUT IT IS NOT NEW EGGS FAULT) They sell 'Em not make 'Em lol "In actually I have no cons it is a cheeky way of getting a Titan black esq card. I HAVE NO CONS

Other Thoughts: I was going to purchase a Titan black but i took the little lady for a day on the town on my one and only day off for the month so I absolutely wanted performance power and didn't want to wait lol... maybe in the future I will purchase a Titan Z but for right now I have absolutely no need for 8k power in the 4k stage of gaming...also I have oc'ed this card a little bit with loads of room to go further.

Intel Core i3-3225 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637I33225 Desktop Processor                                                                                   Intel HD Graphics 4000

Pros: IT works well for games! every one is on the quad core kick when MOST games still use 128 bit binary code to display the desired content hence ps 2 - ps 3 & x box -X-box 360 type of "Rendering graphics" but now computer gaming is entering an immortal state; with 256, and with in the next 10 years 512 binary code of content display hence Dx-11 and beyond plus Tessellation "SUPER kick @#s awesome effect. This gen 3 I3 is the introductory chip of the revamped Xeon processor. It is 4 threads "but look" before you needed 4 threads to play older games before 2010 and at those times were powerful and still able to play some of today's games. Look at this gen 3 I3 and it uses less electrical current but more and significant CPU+GPU processing power to play BF 3 on ULTRA, Crysis 2 and 3 on ultra, DMC on ultra and "Man DX-11 Really rocks", 2 K13,Assassin's creed all of them,and NFS Most wanted 2012, This CPU is all you need to play all these games! (I DO) Unless it's the my ()() are bigger then yours complex going on. You may just like to have the feeling of power at your finger tips it is your choice. In the words of Bob Ross "It's your world you can create anything you want in it!" (Bench-mark and competitive riggers are excluded b/c in that arena it's ALL ABOUT THE POWER!" For less then $150 you can have a big slice of power by the bits at your finger tips and still play kick @#% games! "Just get the right graphics card for you desired level of expectations."

Cons: NONE and don't think I will have any until my CPU becomes obsolete or burns up. No need to really OC but IF YOU CHOSE SO DON'T BLOG BACK CRYING THAT IT DIED IN ONE WEEK b/c some person's don't know how to regulate the voltage accordingly "Not Intel's fault" it's yours you naughty little Armature over achiever!" lol

Other Thoughts: Maybe some day they make a SSD GPU controller,or will bring back the PCI GUP like they use to have so we can go GPU hog wild and really SUPER beef our entire system but allow "US" the consumers how much power and to where we specifically WANT to dedicate it in the entire process...
