Pros: It’s sturdy and looks cool. Perfect if you have an extra Sata drive and want to convert it to an external for backup. Sure beats buying an external hard drive brand new, especially a Sata3.0Gb/s 320gb one. I’ve owned it for over a month now and it works great. And as an added bonus the blue lights are cool; one for power and another for activity.
Cons: Don’t recommend using it 24/7, fan collects dust like an air purifier! On/off switch is great though, just make sure to select “safely remove hardware”, then just hit the switch to off. I like that though; having the hdd completely separate from your system is great for when weird/bad things happen… that’s why it’s a backup!
Other Thoughts: Not much else to say, I’m happy with it and again it looks and feels like a serious piece of equipment. Have had no problems with speeds on transfers whatsoever and it’s just an all around good product!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card for 1920x1080 resolution gaming paired with a Amd FX-6300 Cpu or better. Plays all of the newest and prettiest games using the highest settings with 30+ fps, although I do need to turn off AA but that’s fine at 1080p on a 23” monitor (can barely notice any rough jaggy edges). The most demanding game I’ve tried is Crysis 3 on very high, no AA, Vsync off and still usually get 30-40 fps, only saw 20’s a couple times in weird spots, very playable. To get closer to 60fps you would need to drop down to high settings w/no AA or drop $500 bucks on a GTX780 but I simply can’t spend that much on a video card right now, my budget build does exactly what I need; it’s got me playing the latest games at respectable settings!
Cons: Did not come with a backplate, disappointed about that but it was not advertised so no big deal. Also kinda pricey, it’s the most expensive component in my computer but worth it since pc gaming is a hobby I enjoy and also for Battlefield 4 with friends (again highest settings just no AA). My last card was a 260GTX so a huge upgrade for me!
Other Thoughts: I like the ACX cooler look and design, I did need to order some new case cooling fans just because of this card and have been watching temps with EVGA precision (great program btw); seems ok with temps hitting 75 to 80C on the most intensive games.
Also would like to mention the PSU I’m using is a Corsair TR2 600W and does have the 6+2 and 6 pin connectors, works great no problems.
Was supposed to come with Nvidia Holiday Bundle with 2 games, had to contact NewEgg chat online to get it sorted out, they shipped the game codes right away no fuss! Thanks NewEgg!
Pros: Well they work, not much else to say. I started with 4gigs then ordered 2 more sticks, all work just fine.
Other Thoughts: Lot’s of programs including my mobo’s bios say there running at 800mhz, but it’s really double that cause the ddr thing (double rate), anyway they work just as expected.
