Acer G6 Series G246HLAbd Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Size: Thin and light, around 8 pounds

Brightness: Extremely bright with vibrant colors.

Price: Picked this up for 140$, excellent price in my opinion for the quality of the product.

Cons: Blue power light is very bright, may be annoying to some.

Color settings out of the box are horrible, but this can easily be fixed with some tweaking.

I have another acer monitor with the same stand and it sucks. It only tilts like 15 degrees. I have them both mounted though so it is not a factor for me.

Other Thoughts: Have this monitor mounted on a stand, looks beautiful without the stand that comes with it.

I got this monitor so I could have 3 in total. I did not want anything fancy, I just needed more screen space. All in all, this is a great everyday use monitor.

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Going from two 670s in SLI to a 970. Popped the card in last night and I am very impressed so far.

Noise/Cooling: If noise is the biggest factor for you, then buy this card. It is without a doubt the quietest card I have ever owned. The fans will not start spinning up until the card hits around 60C. Some may see this as a negative thing. Because of this, the card will idle around a warm 45C...

The heatsink is massive, so when the fans do start spinning up, it doesn't take more than around 1000rpm to keep the cards cool, so it is still quiet even under load.

Overclocking: Overclocked the card to 1300MHz with no problem at all and I am sure it could easily push 1400+

Games: Started BF4 for a quick test and at max settings with a few options turned off it sat at a constant 200FPS and I was very impressed. I am going to test out Shadow of Mordor tonight which is said to require 6GB of VRAM.. Tests were ran at 1920x1080 @ 120HZ

Aesthetics: This card looks really sexy, I really like the black and red look. It even includes a backplate

Cons: Size: Not really a con for me because I am using an 800D but this card is HUGE. Compared to my 670s, it is like another 2 inches longer.

There is a slight whine coming from the coil which is my biggest gripe with this card.

Other Thoughts: I did a lot of research on this card and after reading all the reviews online I deciced to go with ASUS. My past cards have always been EVGA but after all the problems I have been reading with the ACX cooling I decided to go with ASUS and could not be happier.

CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Bought this PSU well over 2 years ago and it is still running my gaming PC flawlessly.
-80PLUS Gold
-Quiet, I can't even hear it running
-Fully modular, only use the cables you need for your system, this is a great spave saver
-Beautiful PSU with rock solid build quality

Cons: None whatsoever

Other Thoughts: You know you are getting a quality product when you unbox a corsair power supply. The packaging for this PSU was simply amazing. The powersupply comes in a cloth bag and the cables come with a nice pouch too that I use for holding computer parts.

I bought the individually sleeved cable kit from Corsair which is an awesome addition to this already excellent PSU. I reccomend the cable kit offered by Corasir.

I am running overclocked dual 670s and an i72600K overclocked to 4.5GHz and this thing has power to spare.
