ASUS GTX650TI-O-1GD5 GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Super Quiet.
- Great price/performance ratio, DON'T let anyone tell you otherwise.
- Does surprisingly well at 1080p gaming.
- Overclocks super easy with the software that it's included with.
- Not super power hungry, I'm having no problem running it on a 430w PSU.

Cons: - Not a GTX Titan but.. you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I've had this video card for about a month now and it's an incredible upgrade from my GT 620. This card has no problem playing BF3 on max setting at 1080p while still achieving 40-45 FPS on a dual core! I can only imagine how much more it would benefit to pair this up with an i5 or i7.

I easily achieved a 15% overclock and I'm sure I could push it more. I really like the ASUS overclocking software that it came with.

Intel Pentium G860 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1155 65W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80623G860
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Very cheap, of course in a good way.
- Super easy to install.
- Runs very cool, even with stock Intel fan.
- Stock Intel fan is very quiet.
- Perfect for a gamer on a budget.
- Low power consumption

Cons: - Falls back on higher CPU dependent games such as Battlefield and Skyrim.
- Cannot keep up with today's standards video editing wise.
- Bottlenecks almost ALL video cards after the $130 price range.
- Integrated graphics are awful for games.

Other Thoughts: If you are a first time PC builder that wants to get into PC gaming but you are not sure if it'll do you justice, this CPU is the BEST option. Having it be only $70, it certainly a great CPU.

For a while, I ran this with a GT 620 and the CPU powered up that to it's full potential. Recently, I just upgraded to a GTX 650 Ti and I have noticed a CPU bottleneck in games such as BF3, Skyrim, and Bioshock Infinite.

As for video editing, this is not really what you want. I own a fairly successful YouTube channel and I am rendering and editing videos every single day almost. I don't like all the time I have to spend waiting and waiting and WAITING for my videos to render. This happens in Sony Vegas along with After Effects.

Overall, this is a great CPU. I do suggest if you are planning to do video editing, save up a bit more money and get an AMD chip such as the Phenom 965.
