Pros: Excellent monitor for $85!
Looks good, even at non-centered viewing angles.
Nice menu UI.
DVI-D support (looks a lot better than ugly VGA).
Rotates so that I can easily plug in the DVI cable.
900p resolution; something I'm very late for, but looks good enough for me!
Cons: Just a few minor scratches on the screen; nothing unexpected.
Other Thoughts: It's better in almost every way than my previous monitor. Only thing I'll miss is 75Hz refresh rate. My wife is happy that I replaced that cruddy old thing with this one. I plan to keep it for about 1-2 years in hopes that I'll be able to afford something with G-Sync in it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good for intermediate gaming! To my experience, not too bad for video editing and encoding, but that's just me. I've never used a better CPU for that stuff. It has served me well for the past 4 years running 3.4 GHz.
Cons: I wasn't able to keep it stable at 3.5 GHz. No big deal. Probably my mobo's fault. Like how much difference is an additional 100 MHz gonna make? lol. It bottlenecks my GTX 660 Ti in newer games, obviously.
Other Thoughts: I recommend it to anyone on a super tight budget, but if one can spend a little higher, I'd say go for the best FM2+ socket.
I have an FX-8350 planned for my next build. Hoping by next year I'll have it. Making just enough money to pay bills gets annoying.
Pros: Perfect for the price. Got it for $250. Worthy upgrade from my GTX 460. Runs most newer games w/highest settings at 60 fps. Some exceptions are Crysis 3 (obviously) and Borderlands 2 w/PhysX. It outta keep me satisfied for a couple years. I'd go SLI but I heard SLI has its own problems.
Cons: Not really a con but worth sharing.
A few weeks ago my PC kept randomly freezing. I contacted EVGA about it and they gave me tips to tell if the card was flawed. Turns out the card was fine. It wasn't inserted in the pci-e slot properly. I reinserted it to another slot and it's been working fine since.
Other Thoughts: Gotta upgrade the rest of my PC!
