EVGA 120-G2-1000-XR 80 PLUS GOLD 1000 W 10 yr Warranty Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support continuous Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Well it's really hard to write a review about a PSU. It's not like a graphics card that you can benchmark. Unless you have tens of thousands of dollars in equipment, you can't test it beyond running your system on it. It either works or it doesn't. In this case I've had absolutely no drama with the PSU after owning it for over a year. Based on my experience with this power supply so far, I can wholeheartedly recommend this supply.

Ten year warranty, who else does this? Not many, and those that do are trusted names in the industry.

Cons: Price. It was more expensive when I purchased it compared to now. However as with anything, you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I am very satisfied with this purchase. In over a year I haven't had any problems. Granted, that's how everything should be, but sadly in most cases that is far from the truth. Fortunately for me, and you if you purchase this PSU, this is a very good product.

ASUS GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I've had the card a few days now, and from what I've experienced thus far, it's a great card. Performs much better than the 7950 that I had.

The cooling solution is excellent and quiet. At default the fan profile allows the card to warm up to around 73C at full load, however the fan doesn't start spinning until 65C. I've modified the fan profile via MSI Afterburner and now it stays around 63C without much additional noise.

I haven't overclocked, but I've read that 1500MHz boost clock is doable with a little luck.

I've played a little of everything to get an idea of how much an increase I've gotten for my investment. It plays COD: AW pretty well, but there is some stuttering. I'm not too concerned about the stuttering since this is pretty early after the release of the games and the latest nVidia driver (344.60). I'm pretty sure there are going to be a few rounds of patches and driver updates because this game is a long ways from fully optimized.

Haven't played with DSR yet, but I plan to.

Build quality is superb as well.

Cons: Haven't run into any cons yet. Seems to play everything pretty well. It's slightly more expensive than comparable non-reference cards such as MSI's card. So if there is a con, maybe price, but thats it so far.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm pretty happy with this card. I came from a nVidia card to an AMD card back to nVidia. It's kind of nice to have the option of PhysX again for the few games that I have that use it.

G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

Pros: Second set works at the XMP profile settings no problem. Stylish heatsinks if you can use them. First set had one bad DIMM. Computer refused to POST with it in. NewEgg was eggcellent and approved my RMA and got me the pre-paid shipping label within a few hours. Turn around was about a week and a half shipping time.

If it hadn't been for the timely processing of the RMA, I probably would have deducted two eggs, but NewEgg won one back with their prompt attention.

Cons: First kit was bad. I usually stick to Corsair or Kingston (in my opinion the cornerstones of the RAM business), but I'd read good things about G.Skill and they tend to have the faster enthusiast kits, so I thought I'd give them a try. I've had new RAM that was faulty, but never a kit that caused my system not to POST. I know it happens, it's just never happened to me.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably try G.Skill again. However it's never a good thing though when a first time customer's experience is a bad one. G.Skill should be extremely grateful that NewEgg was able to turn this into a positive experience. Thankfully the second kit worked without a hiccup, just set the memory to the XMP profile and it boot with no issues. Had this been my first experience, I would most certainly have picked 5 eggs.
