HP Laptop 6470B Intel Core i5 3320M (2.60 GHz) 4 GB Memory 128 GB SSD 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this for my wife because she wanted a laptop that can handle everyday tasks smoothly. This one is perfect for her. The SSD really speeds up things. Booting up into Windows takes like 8 seconds. The unmentioned video processor happens to be an Intel HD 4000, which should be able to run older games and newer non-heavy games. I've hardly touched the laptop, so I can't say much about it except that my wife is happy with it.

Cons: Too soon to tell.

Other Thoughts: It should come in handy on trips. I can continue working on my guitar tabs while I'm away from my beasty desktop pc, or play Shovel Knight...

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card

5 out of 5 eggs Finally, I have a high-end card after all those years of being a PC gamer! 03/06/2016

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: It's significantly better than my 660 Ti in every way. Temperature is good under full load; hasn't exceeded 70°C with 67% fan speed. A neat feature of this GPU is that the fans don't start spinning until it reaches a certain temp, so they'll last a very long time. I'll definitely be using this card until the next-gen consoles come out.

Cons: If I have to say anything, its performance in 4K isn't amazing (in big titles). Doesn't matter to me. 1080p is still a great res.

Other Thoughts: There is talk about coil whine. I haven't heard anything.
There is controversy about its memory. I can't saying anything about that since I haven't had 3.5 GB reached yet.
This GPU, paired with a G-Sync monitor, is a great experience!
I tried to use PhysX in Borderlands 2, hoping I'd get to enjoy the extra eye-candy at smooth fps, but unfortunately Borderlands 2 has awful optimization when PhysX is enabled. On the other hand, Killing Floor 2 shows huge improvement over my previous GPU.

AOC G2460PG 24

Pros: I've only had this monitor for a few hours and I love it! I was lucky to have found it at this unbeatable price! I've never owned a TN panel before, so at first I was a bit worried about its colors and view angles (like I've seen on laptops), but to my surprise, colors and view angles are nowhere nearly as bad. Perfectly fine for games and movies. 144 Hz and 1ms response time are insane! I never want to go back to 60 Hz or 75 Hz again. It's ruined me within the few hours I've had it (I knew it would). G-Sync is pretty much how I expected it to be: Excellent at high framerates (over 80) and okay-ish at low framerates (35-40 fps). I didn't expect it to magically make low fps feel snappy, just like with V-Sync disabled on a regular monitor, it doesn't feel good no matter what, but G-Sync is wonderful when used at high fps. It even works well in borderless windowed games such as The Evil Within. ULMB is a cool feature for competitive players. I don't see myself using it much since it darkens the screen a bit and can't be used along with G-Sync. I tried it out and Wow... Blurs be dämned! I'm very pleased with the time of shipping. Not a single scratch on the screen.

Cons: Fedex left the box in plain sight. Typical!

Other Thoughts: This is THE monitor to get if your PC isn't exactly high-end. Medium rigs will benefit greatly with graphics settings turned down. This monitor makes my GTX 660 Ti look more bad-äss lol. Next week I'll have my 970. My face is gonna explode.
