Pros: Very affordable for what you get. Pretty good frame rates. Amazing frame rates if you buy two and sli them.
Just as a comparison.
Assetto Corsa at 5040x1050 (triple monitors)
1 760 - 20 fps with all settings maxed (anti-alisasing turned off, shadows set to max)
2 760's - 38 fps with all settings maxed (anti-alisasing turned off, shadows set to max)
Turn shadow details to low and you get 70 fps with one card, and 115 fps in sli. (again at 5040x1050)
4 ports, 2 dvi, 1 display port, and one hdmi.
2 in sli mode will out perform a 780 titan, for way less.
Cons: Runs a little hot as the fans are not that great (obviously not a con if you have a water cooled system).
Fans can be a bit loud.
Doesn't come with an sli bridge. Is a cheap $2 cable that much to ask for?
Takes a bit more power than you would think. So make sure you have at least a 600w psu. I had to swap out my antec 550w to use just one card. I got an 850w one because I knew I would eventually go to sli (which I did about 2 months ago). However, I am on an older i7 (920) which is a bit more power hungry than new processors. I would research as much as you can to verify that your psu does have enough umphhh.
Other Thoughts: Awesome card for the price (I got mine when they were $200). If it had better fans it would give this card 5 eggs without hesitation. As it is, 4 eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Superior quality over the standard wheel that comes with the tx 458.
Good button placement and the paddle shifters are very nice.
Feels like a real wheel. Does not feel plastic and cheap.
Cons: Way over priced in my opinion. Should be a $50-60 add on.
It is too small. It is a 7/10 scale replica. It doesn't take away from the driving experience too much, but a full scale replica or at least an 8.5/10 scale would be much much better.
Didn't come with the tx 458 to begin with.
Other Thoughts: I do not mind the original wheel that came with the tx 458, but I doubt it will ever go back on now that I have this wheel. Is it really worth the upgrade to this wheel? That a matter of opinion. I say no, not really, not for the price. However, if this wheel were around $50-60, then I would say absolutely yes.READ FULL REVIEW
