GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti GV-N65TOC-2GI 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great card for the gamer on a budget 07/02/2013

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti GV-N65TOC-2GI 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: -Installed easily with no problems
-Doesn't get too hot
-Runs all my games, such as Borderlands 2, Skyrim, on Ultra High at 60 FPS.
-Has choice of DVI, HDMI, and VGA
-Very quiet. Even under heavy load the fans barely make a sound

Cons: -Driver update needed at first
-Somewhat large. Do not buy if you have a small tower

Other Thoughts: I bought this card on sale for $140, and it performs excellently. One thing that did sort of bug me was that it blue screened once and crashed once while playing Skyrim, but a driver update fixed that.

Logitech G230 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great find for the price 06/27/2013

This review is from: Logitech G230 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset

Pros: -Sound quality is good
-Mic is sensitive enough to pick up my voice but not too sensitive
-Very comfortable on my head
-Doesn't get uncomfortable after five hours of gaming
-Inline volume control

Cons: -Headband padding can became slightly uncomfortable after a while
-Kind of hard to store

Other Thoughts: The fabric that surrounds the ear cups doesn't ventilate very well and tends to make my ears hot after a lot of wearing time, but this isn't really an issue. Another thing to add is that these are very good if you have a big head, big ears, and/or glasses. I have all three of these, and they don't bother me at all. For the price this is a great headset for the gamer on a budget.

Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked very well. Ran my GTX 650 Ti and a bunch of peripherals with no trouble at all. Very quiet for a time.

Cons: First unit failed, and second unit is going to fail. Became very noisy under heavy load, and the noise is abnormal.

Other Thoughts: My first unit failed while I was playing Borderlands 2 after 3 weeks of use. I figured I had a lemon, so I returned it for a new one. Less than two weeks later, the second unit has begun making an odd rattling sound which increases under load. I'm afraid to play any games because I may have another failure.
