AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.0GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Processor HDZ940XCGIBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

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.

EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

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!

1 out of 5 eggs Why does it even exist? 02/12/2013

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift PC Game Assassin's Creed 3

Pros: Nice graphics.
Looks like fun if it was playable.

Cons: Very painful install process! Uplay temporarily banned me for using the wrong code, which was in my email that I found after I got banned. 1 hour later... yay it works. But the pain's not over! The optimization alone made me uninstall it with FIRE! Perfect example of a broken game right here. You might as well burn it when you see it included in your combo.

Other Thoughts: If you're going to include a highly anticipated game with a med-high range video card, test if the motherf-er works please!
