EVGA GeForce GT 630 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 01G-P3-2632-KR 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works great with normal use until it stops working. EVGA RMA process is quick and easy.

Cons: The fan makes noise at startup and is the loudest fan in my system. This card failed six months after I started using it. The fan started making noise and was throwing off a fine gray powder until the connection to the monitor finally quit. While EVGA replaced it, having to pay the postage to return it added $10 to my cost for the part.

Other Thoughts: Apparently cleaning your system every 3 months or so will extend the life of the card. That has yet to be proven. I fully expect it to fail again, at which time I will replace it with a new card from another manufacturer -- it's just not worth the time and postage to send it back again.

Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: First is that Corsair is an American company. I believe this is the least expensive case with two 3.0 USB ports on the front (but remember you need a 3.0 connection on your mobo to utilize them), which is one of the reasons I bought it. The six internal drive bays are easy to use and compatible with my 2.5" SSD. It has a handy carry handle on top, which makes it easier to lug this big, heavy case out to the compressor for a cleaning. It comes with 3 fans sufficient for normal use and has room to add more. Good cable management, LED lights on front fans are nifty and can be turned off with one of the front buttons, thumb screw sides come off easily.

Cons: Haven't noted any
