Pros: -Extremely quiet (No coil whine)
Overall this is one beast of a budget build card.
Cons: -6 pin power Connector located near bracket (front of card), which is a uncommon place for it. Though this does not seem to affect the actual performance of the card, an egg will not be deducted.
Other Thoughts: This card went into an entry level/budget gaming PC I made for my brother. Have tested the card on games at 1920x1200 resolution and 1366x768 on a few games such as Rust, Dota, Bioshock Infinite, Heros of Newerth, Warface, and Path of Exile. When most of these titles ran on 1920x1200 (My personal monitor), they ran at above 60fps when OC'd (1252 (1330 boost) core, 1503 memory). Most stressful of the games were Bioshock Infinite where I would normally stay at about 43-50 fps. When running these games at 1366x768 all titles ran at an excess of 60 fps. This cards seems an excellent choice for 1080p monitor seeing as how well it performed in 1920x1200. For people who happen have/play on 720p monitors this card should handle any game easily. The last 3 titles mentioned were part of the bundle the card came with at the time of purchase.

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra ATX-502WTIU Titanium/Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: -Cheap case.
Cons: -Does not come with fan placement built side panel for extra airflow.
-Stock fans seem rather weak with airflow.
-Don't really like how the top was designed for the placement of fans seems that the fans will wobble in place from vibration due to the rubber tubes where the screws will go. The rubber tubes can move around in the holes that they are placed in. Although I will not use this as a determining factor for deducting an egg as I have not placed a 120 mm fan there to test this theory.
Other Thoughts: Would like to see the case remade with a larger see-through side panel with a side fan placement built into it for better airflow. Even if some will not care for the side fan or larger see-through side panel. In my opinion those who like cases with rather nice aesthetic designs love see-through side panels so that we can marvel at what is in our PC as well. At last this case was not one that I picked, but my brother for the entry gaming PC I built for him.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great value.
2 PCIe slots.
2800+ OC support for memory.
Cons: None as of the time of review.
Other Thoughts: This Mobo was applied to an entry gaming build I made for my brother with a i5-3470. I have no intention of overclocking so that is the reason I did not purchase a i5-3570k. The CPU is being paired up with a GTX 750 ti. The Mobo itself sits in a Raidmax Cobra ATX-502WTIU Titanium/Black case. The Mobo has slightly smaller dimension than most ATX boards, but that does not come as a problem due to all of it features.READ FULL REVIEW
