Pros: Fits just fine in my Cooler Master 130, runs games at 1080p, sips power, and after the firmware update, stays relatively quiet. I'm using it as part of my HTPC upgrade, and it has turned a very modest machine into an Xbox One/PS4 killer. Runs Skyrim at Ultra without missing a frame. Crysis 2 requires some settings to be dialed back, but still looks amazing. Looking forward to running Titanfall on this bad boy.
Cons: Be aware that this edition of the card requires a 6-pin power connector. Also, card runs fairly loud until you perform the firmware update. Hopefully, newer editions of the card will come with the update already applied.
Other Thoughts: If you don't need top of the line, if you want energy efficiency, or if you want a simple upgrade to a pre-built or store-bought system, the 750ti is for you. If you're putting this in a store-bought system, you'll probably want a version without the 6-pin plug.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: affordable, spacious RAM
Cons: one stick died within 3 months.
Other Thoughts: I had this installed in a build for my fiancée's mother. The PC began bsod-ing, and rebooted saying OS could not be found. Tracked the issue down to one bad stick that would crash any system it was installed in. I am not happy about that, and I will be sticking with g-skill from here on.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-A55M-DS2 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Works, very affordable. Overclocks reasonably well.
Cons: Very minor gripe: not a fan of the SATA port layout.
Other Thoughts: I had previously reviewed this product with a 1-egg, stating that it had failed. This was my error. As it turns out, it was one of the sticks of Corsair XMS3 RAM that died. Off to review that.READ FULL REVIEW
