Pros: Dead silent
low-zero coil whine
light weight (no sag)
low low price for a 960
Other Thoughts: I have been building computers since the days of DOS and 386's. I usually build gaming comps for business and gaming enthusiast but this card was for me.
I have tried the majority of all the newer cards. 970, 280x, 680, 670 270x crossfire ect...
This card...if you are a gamer at 1080p, IS the card to get.
Yes the 970 was an absolute beast, but I game on a 42 inch 1080p. I get 60+ fps in almost all my games with MAX detail Heroes of the Storm 80-150fps!!!
I have mine overclocked to 1542mhz/7900mhz ram. If you want a low power, low heat output, and a smooth as butter experience; grab this card!!!
P.S. ALL the 960's are pretty good overclockers, they will ALL hit 1450+mhz if you do them right.
enjoy, and remember; if you are'nt gaming over 1080p...do NOT buy the 970!!! Its unnecessary.
Pros: Geforce 650m overclocks to 660m, DDR5 2gb
Ivy Bridge CPU..overclocks to 3.4ghz quad-core
backlit keyboard, BRIGHT lcd
aluminum casing, black, silver
NICE chiclet- curved keyboard.
Windows 8 64bit version WITH disk in box
1 year ON-SITE Dell warranty
Cons: The ONLY thing would be battery life. It has a flush mounted battery so its not bulging out but it only lasts a couple/few hours on internet ect. But then again its a 17 inch so get over it :)
Other Thoughts: I originally purchased a RE-furbished G73 and G74. (yes I had 2 of them) and those things are just an absolute WRECK as refurbs'. I'm not sure who is doing their repair work but I will NEVER touch one of them again. They both went back and I picked up this computer.
My goodness am I shocked!!! I cannot believe the hardware (and support) you get with this machine. Its 100% rock stable, runs cool, has very very limited bloatware, and plays ANY game out there.
I have ALWAYS been impressed with DELL laptops. Yes I know they are pre-manufactured BUT the aluminum casing XPS gaming ones (from years ago) ect were VERY reliable. In fact I still have my 9200 rocking away with an old single core and radeon 9700m in it.
I'm telling you, BUY THIS MACHINE if you are looking for a gaming on the go laptop that does NOT look like some kinda of "kiddie" toy. They really dont make the gaming XPS machines anymore and this is the replacement from what I understand. This is the SPECIAL EDITION version. JUST BUY IT!!! I cant say much more! :)
This review is from: Sony Bravia 32" Class (31.5" Diag.) 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV KDL-32BX421
Pros: Very light, low heat output. Sits flat on my desk with stand NOT required.
Multiple options for viewing pleasure
on/off light sensor (so you can really make it bright)
runs as a TRUE monitor once hooked up to vga port to video card
(was running this 1920x1200 but settled down to 1920x1080)
Actually has a GAMER and GRAPHICS setting
Cons: little thicker than the newer monitors
other than that....I got mine elsewhere for cheaper :( Love newegg though.
Other Thoughts: I was on the hunt for a name-brand COMPUTER-MONITOR worthy lcd-tv. This is'nt LED but the picture is crystal clear.
You will be hard pressed to find another lcd tv that looks and acts just like my old 27 inch monitor.
Best monitor ever :) buy it now!!!!
