EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2783-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Let's face it, there are as many pros as there are reviews.
excellent stats, overclock-able,beautiful to look at. Etc. etc.

Cons: Maybe not cons,just gripes.People say price, but you get what you pay for.
That being said.
My biggest gripe is there's no backing plate with the purchase of this card. Come on **** you can't put a $25 backing plate with this.

Other Thoughts: The main reason I bought this particular video card was the fact that the hot air was exhausted out the back of the computer,not inside.But still being a superclocker video card
Like others have said before, this is a big video card. Make sure you have the room. I upgraded from a GTX 480 that has the same dimensions as the GTX 780 so I knew it would fit.
It is a very heavy card and I worried about the twist from the weight of the card. The back half has no support and I noticed that there is a small sags on the top rear of the card. putting a twist on the PCI express slot and the video card connection.
My case is a mid-tower and the power supply is on top so the card is fairly close to the bottom of the case.
I cut a ballpoint pen casing to size to hold up the top back of the card,relieving the strain on the card and the motherboard. Maybe everyone should at least look at this and determine if they see a problem that needs to be addressed.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: love them, I got my first one in January of 2013. it was so fast. So bought one more, put them in raid 0. Now it's faster. Got about 500 MB read without raid. And about 175 MB write. In raid 0 now it's about 850 MB read. And 380 MB write.boot times between 10 and 15 seconds.

Cons: only cons is updating the firmware. Took a little bit of reading up on their forum. But found software that with one click did it all. Also you have to get Windows to recognize it because it would boot up but Windows didn't see it. Again I did a search this time on Google and found what I needed. all is well.

Other Thoughts: looks like they've come down in price about $20 in 10 months
have looked on the forms of other SSD manufacturers. All seem to have the same gripes so buy what you're comfortable with but get a SSD.
