EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price performance ratio, heat dissipation, blower type fan.

Cons: Still not free

Other Thoughts: I wish I had bought two 670 instead of two 680. 670 overclocks like a breeze, and two extra 100$ in my pockets for roughly the same performance.

WD WD RE4 WD2503ABYX-FR 250GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good price for RE4

Cons: Is it me or the point of buying a RE4 hard drive is a bit defeated if buying it refurbished ? The point of such a drive is higher quality, now you are buying a re manufactured unit that was once faulty.

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket FM1 100W AD3870WNGXBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great bang for your buck ( advertised bang !) CPU + GPU on one chip, dual graphics. Flexibility, low power usage.

Cons: Where to start ?. This is my second A8 Llano Black, RMA'd the first one through newegg which cost me 25 dollars. Now at least the replacement unit went through windows installation. I see a lot of artifacts, every temp software tried either gives me around 11c temps or 80c temps, go figure. I tried re-seating the heatsink properly, in case, and now computer will post, will boot, but after a few minutes, graphics adapter error. Like when it was working, I could get in a small game ( like trine or Torchlight ) but it would crash to desktop after one minute.

Other Thoughts: Always been an AMD fan boy, bought 7970 and wasnt that impressed, especially for the price so I went to nvidia. Tried this for someone's second build ( budget ) and now I must tell him to wait for a second rma ?. Horrible heatsink, bad documentation, impossible to find temp software fully compatible. Will try contacting AMD. The thermal paste provided leaks and basically sucks.

I am VERY disappointed from that company which provided me with my first hardcore gaming rigs. If I fail to get good service Ill RMA the whole thing, ditch 150$ extra, loose money on the sale, and just build an i3 with dedicated graphics. At least I know this will work.
