ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Card seems to be doing well, so far. No issues to date, but it's early. I haven't put it through a few tests yet, but will do so when I get the time.

Cons: Nvidia promotion is for a download of Borderlands 2 when *ANY* GTX 660 Ti or higher is purchased from August 16, 2012 through May 30, 2013. Have sent in a request to NewEgg. Having written to Nvidia directly, they indicate speaking directly to the retailer. So I got one of the highest rated GTX 660 Ti video cards on the market and it doesn't become a part of the promotion? Buy directly from Zotac, EVGA and others, and they offer their customers a form of thanks through the promotion. So much for being a loyal customer through the years.

Other Thoughts: And to add to it afterwards, now the same video card has a rebate offer on the day *AFTER* I pick this one up.

Sure to think twice when purchasing in the future.

Acer GD235HZbid Black / Orange 23.6

Pros: 120 Hz and necessary cables included. Newegg shipping was unexpectedly quick and. Works well with Windows 7 Ultimate and a Galaxy GTX460 SuperOC.

Cons: Complaints from other reviews that almost made me not buy this monitor. Rarely do LCD manufacturers included better stands (go buy a NeoFlex ergonomic monitor stand!). There is some backlight bleeding on the bottom. The color seems washed out compared to my previous LCD, but it just needs to be calibrated.

Other Thoughts: I think the backlight bleeding is mod-able if I want, plus replacing a CCFL with LEDs won't be rocket science either. Used the latest drivers from Nvidia, and Win7 found the latest drivers for the monitor (same as the 245HQ).

ASUS P5Q3 DELUXE/WIFI-AP CH1-11 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Disappointing performance 08/13/2009

This review is from: ASUS P5Q3 DELUXE/WIFI-AP CH1-11 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Enough slots for what I need, decent slot arrangement and works at stock settings.

Cons: Memory stability. Everything that any other review has posted about how picky this board is with different memory sticks and how each BIOS revision fails to fix the issue is 100% correct.

If you're not using RAM with Samsung based modules on them, then don't expect stability even with the latest BIOS F/W. Took me awhile to figure this one out, and very disappointed that it's an issue that has yet to be fixed.

Have yet to get anything with serious stability, and I'll be getting some other board as I'm done with putting up with this one. I advise others to do the same.
