Dell UltraSharp U3011 30
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is a real LCD monitor of huge proportions! Colour is excellent out of the box, sharp and crisp. No dead pixels.
*Wow* Still comes to mind, max settings are impressive. I have elected to use 125% sizing for easier viewing; from the Display panel.

Cons: Have not had time to 'Play' with settings yet, however there is light bleed from all sides. Slowed my system down a tad, thought installing the driver would help, but no. Perhaps it's not a fair comment coming from two LG S-IPS 24" LCD's, that cost $650.00 a piece. Faster refresh on the 'Old' LCD's.

Other Thoughts: This completes the new build. I have supported DELL PC's and laptops in a business environment since around 2000; this is the first DELL product I have ever bought.

Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor BX80619i73820
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: There are some people who buy this thinking it’s the lower end range of the i7 crowd, but old tech fossils know better.

Cons: None.
Never ceases to amaze me how people write reviews, based on their lack of knowledge, or completly off topic for the item reviewed. Roughly 1:1,500 nmotherboards have an issue; if you believe failure rates around here at 1:50, it tells all. If people can't spend the time to get a fundemental understanding of the inner workings of how a PC works -Get somebody to help you out!

Other Thoughts: The number one error encountered are those that don't check compatibility FIRST, followed by BIOS or firmware updates and then HOW to set the BIOS for what they have.

Happenstance the Sabertooth mobo was an open box, obviously that's a risk, however knowing that there was a chance somebody clueless had it; went ahead and its a flawless build. I often wonder how much the Egg have to deal with those that should stay away from builds, until educated. It's obvious to those that know when a poor [weired] review is posted.

ZOTAC ZT-60301-10P GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great card, problem free. Runs quiet and fast.

Cons: Software deficient., not worth an egg off though as that's not what was for sale.

Other Thoughts: I tried as many have, to get a GTX680, good thing because for a 2-3% loss I paid a full $240.00 less for the GTX670 -I call that bang for buck. It was just as hard to get a GTX670, just lucked in, however I would have preferred the MSI for the afterburner software.

Bought system parts at the Egg:
