GIGABYTE GV-N78TOC-3GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Avg or better warranty period and good support(from past experiences)
-good heat pipe design giving it a better cooling capacity than reference design

Cons: I don't like the fans they use, I've had SOC windforce versions of their designs in the past and they don't last as long as the should and often rattle which means their probably sleeve bearing fans. Sleeve bearings should never be mounted in any direction other than vertically. Being an OC card and one of their top tier models I would expect at least dual ball bearing fans.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a 780ti and not sure which to get, stop wasting time. Most of the top manufacture's current offerings are all the same, from reference to OC. Pick the one your comfortable with, I see none that truly stand out. If you visit each manufactures product page you'll see even the OC numbers have all been competitively matched, BASE:1020 MHz / BOOST:1085 MHz, or with in a few mhz.. The only card I don't like is the Zotac with their one year less than anyone else's standard warranty.

Logitech G500S 910-003602 10 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 8200 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good if you've never used the G9 series. Middle thumb button is a plus.

Cons: After using the G9 logitech mouse for over 6 years, this mouse doesn't compare. I play FPS games competitively. I have owned the g500s for about 1+ year now. I noticed a stark difference in click speed. The G9 is more stable in comparison with less travel during clicks. The tracking seems smoother as well. The tall arch and lenght of the G500s was the hardest to get used to. It places your pointer finger higher which I believe is the culprit for slower click speeds. It also caused pain in my wrist and hand for a few weeks while I adapted to the arch. The mouse is a half an inch taller than the G9 with a considerable arch from front to back.

Other Thoughts: I don't know how to explain it other than the old G9 seems more accurate all the way around. I noticed a drop in my frag rate with the g500s, went back to the G9 and improved. Fo me, the higher DPI is a useless ploy. I tried it, couldn't use it properly. Many games use windows sensitivity in menus and hardware in game which is a big pain in the rear with high DPI...

5 out of 5 eggs Great little mic 09/19/2013

This review is from: ZALMAN ZM – Mic1 Black 3.5mm Connector High Sensitivity Headphone Mic

Pros: Clips on head phone cord or shirt. Small minimal. Very clear mic with not strange background noises. Voice activation in different programs pick up very well with this mic. Have had three, 2 on zalman headphones and this stand alone, all the same all still work great.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Great gaming/voip mic, often better than microphone included on some headsets.
