EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: No coil whine. When I am not gaming I don't hear it all. During gaming it cranks up the fan. I can hear it if I listen carefully. Keeps cool and runs great even under long play times of high graphics like in Witcher 3 or Batman. When I bought the card it came with a rebate that was promptly received. I like that it's already overclocked for me but still room to push the limit a little more if I want to.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggs Works with Steam games 09/25/2013

This review is from: NEW Black PC Wireless Controller Gaming Receiver For XBOX 360

Pros: I was looking for an inexpensive way to get a controller to work with Steam games. Mostly Grid 2 and Dark Souls. Since I already had several wireless Xbox 360 controllers this was a cheaper than buying another Xbox 360 controller for Windows. It works great on my Windows 8 64 bit system.

Cons: As others have mentioned the drivers installation is horrible and tricky. The disc it came with is useless. I had to search the internet for "how to install a wireless Xbox 360 controller on Windows 8"

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and stable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Decided to upgrade my Core i7 950 to this Core i7 4770k. As you can imagine it is noticeably faster. The newer processors are faster and have features likeTurbo and that make them more effcient. One bonus is the better chipset which means a better motherboard as well. I was glad to see that the memory format is still the same. For the first time, I was able to upgrade to a new processor without having to upgrade my memory. I put that money into upgrading my SATA2 SSD to a SATA3 SSD so the memory companies still made some money. Was a perfect upgrade for my Core i7 950.
