Pros: I am combining both times I have bought this SSD. I got this for my birthday back in January this year, and it has ran laps around the old HDD setup I have previously. Oh my goodness. I never thought an SSD would be this good. Since it's cheap, I went right to this when I was buying some upgrades for my girlfriends gaming PC. Her computer took a good 5 minutes to boot from a cold start, and with a fresh SSD, it took mere seconds. She was absolutely floored at the performance, and she has it paired with a 1TB WD Green.
Cons: It's not too bad of a con, but it is only 120GB at this price, but I am not complaining.
Other Thoughts: One of the more cheaper SSD's out there, and to me, the performance still runs laps and laps around nay conventional HHD. This would be great for a more budgeted person, who wants an SSD but don't want to shed out a lot of money for a decent brand/size.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this card for my girlfriend as a birthday gift for her gaming PC, and she absolutely loves the design of all EVGA cards. Her dad bought a standard 750 Ti, but I decided to go big and grab the FTW edition.
The card runs really good. I never hear it when I am in games. I have played Team Fortress 2, Minecraft (higher texture pack), Neverwinter, and all of the games work perfectly. No lag. No stuttering. Compared to her old EVGA GT630, this upgrade was absolutely needed.
Cons: I don't really have any cons as of right now. If I have anything in the future I will update this as I go.
Other Thoughts: I am beginning to love EVGA more and more with the products I get. All of the cards that I have bought for either myself, or someone else, have all been EVGA cards, and they work flawlessly until I need to upgrade them again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 960GC-GS FX AM3+/AM3/AM2+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I was of course expecting the board to work out of the box, but then again, the quality of boards at this price are sketchy at most.
Anyways, the ACTUAL reason why the board was dead, was surprisingly because of the old AMD dual core CPU I pulled from a different system. I failed to think that one of the mosfets went boom and the power supply on that system turned into a bomb, so eventually I bought an FX-6300 and the board works perfectly. Paired with an EVGA GT630 card for the time until I can afford a better card.
Cons: Overclocking. But who would honestly buy a $60 board to overclock? If you do, and don't efficiently adjust your settings, more than likely the board won't be too happy with you, and be extremely hot.
Fan headers. The only connector capable of speed control, is the CPU connector because it's a 4-pin PWM. All of the others, as far as I know, don't easily have any speed controlling capabilities, so I had to rig up an external fan controller for the 2-3 other fans that were in the case at the time.
Other Thoughts: I decided to do this review since I looked back on my rather... frustrated review, and listening to peers of mine saying that ASRock isn't that bad of a brand, I decided to shed some light on the situation. But, since this is a lower end board for the more severely budgeted builders, it can be used to hold the user off until they can afford a better board.
I like this board.
