EVGA 04G-P4-3776-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support FTW 4GB Dual w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

Pros: Fast.
Plays everything at high settings.

Cons: Noisy.
No longer a good value.

Other Thoughts: Got this to upgrade from a GTX460. While it was clearly a massive improvement over that card, I wish I had know about the pending release of the 970 series. They are much faster than this card and at nearly the same price. Sigh. But make no mistake, this card is good. As many have noted, it makes some noise, but it isn't as loud as my 460 was, so it's not a problem for me. This card is big, as in long. I had to move a drive to get it to fit. It was hitting the connectors and would not plug in. Luckily I had an empty bay just below, so the move was pretty easy. It would be a problem for someone that has all their drive bays full. (My case is a mid-sized tower.) All in all it's a good card, but I would take the 970 over it for the money.

5 out of 5 eggs Good drive, lousy software 10/18/2014

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Wicked fast.
Excellent build quality.

Cons: Bundled Acronis software is junk.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade my Asus laptop along with 8GB more RAM. The installed 1TB disk was obviously the bottleneck in the system. Physical part of the install was painless, the software part, not so much. I followed the instructions and copied the original drive image to a spare drive. Then I installed the SSD and tried to copy the image back to it. The copy technically worked, as in it completed without any errors, but when I tried to boot Windows 8.1, it said Windows was corrupted and must be reinstalled. So I tried again. Same result. Luckily I own a physical copy of Win8, so I erased the drive, popped the Win8 disk in and suffered through a clean install of Windows. Overall I worked with it for about 3 days. The results were worth it. My laptop is blazing fast now. It turns on almost instantly, much faster than even my Android tablet. I definitely recommend the drive, but not the software. I didn't take away an egg for the software because the drive is so good.

Crucial 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT102464BF160B

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's memory. It works. No issues whatsoever.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to expand the RAM in my Asus laptop. I matched the specs to the 8GB RAM that was already installed and this RAM was the result. Install was painless (also installed an SSD which wasn't so painless). Windows 8.1 recognized the new memory right away so now I have 16GB of RAM. My already fast laptop became blazing fast. Definitely worth the time and money I invested. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to expand the RAM on their laptop.
