EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, 08G-P4-6173-KR, 8GB GDDR5, LED, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Plays the great majority of games on max/ultra settings, I haven't ran into any that I can't run on max yet.
-Very quiet, noise level compared to my previous card went down to about HALF.
-Temperature is also down, keeps my whole system much cooler
-VR Ready
-EVGA Support and quality!

Cons: -Price is a little steep but worth it
-Scarce, inventory levels are low currently due to demand for these cards being so high

Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great for gaming
-Overclocks easily
-Not many games use hyperthreading, don't pay for something you won't use

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: If you plan on gaming, get this. There's no need for an i7 (for gaming and regular use). If you run multiple calculations or do A LOT of video editing, then yes, go i7 but if you are a regular power user/gamer, invest the difference in a good cooler or a better GPU and save your money from buying an i7, don't pay for features you won't use!

GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Looks nice
-Nice features

Cons: 1- Gigabyte has really slow customer service and not responsive to tickets.
2- My board keeps giving me Error 55 (memory configuration) on Channel A (DDR4_2 and DDR4_4)

The manual states:
The four memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory sockets as following:
**Channel A: DDR4_2, DDR4_4
**Channel B: DDR4_1, DDR4_3

However, my pair of RAM sticks work on DDR4_1 and DDR4_3 [channel B]. They do not work in Channel A (DDR4_2 and DDR4_4). There are no bent pins and no thermal paste causing any interference.

Seems like a faulty board but Gigabyte is really slow responding on a solution or if this is the way it was designed to work.

Direct link to Memory:

Other Thoughts: Motherboards are one of the most important components in your system. If you need support, I'd recommend purchasing from a different vendor. You never know when you'll get a faulty board, just random chance, but when it happens to you and you need it fixed, you'd like a company that responds and supports you and their product. At this point I can't recommend Gigabyte, I would suggest going somewhere else.
