Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great drive, great price 11/21/2014

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: I bought two of these on sale for $119 6 months ago. I pulled the drive out of the case and made them internal drives for $60 cheaper than you could find the same drive bare. They have been working flawlessly on my HTPC since, zero issues at all. Looking to buy a few more now. 100mb/sec transfer rates are pretty standard.

Cons: Get them out of the case and you have a cheap 4tb internal drive. Leave them in the case and they seem to get hot quick, which might kill longevity

Other Thoughts: As close as you can get for a reliable, fast 4tb drive nearing the $100 range.

GIGABYTE GV-N760OC-2GD REV2.0 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: With this GPU, a Samsung 840 SSD, 4670k at 4ghz, and 8gb ram at 2133, I can crank Crysis 3 all the way up without a single hickup, stutter, slowdown at 1080p. I will be getting a second one of these in the near future to futureproof myself that much more as two of these in SLi offers ridiculous performance. Best money spent for GPU any card, and adding a second makes your computer unstoppable for much less than other cards.

Cons: None for any of today's games. If there is any doubt, SLi them and destroy 780 and Titan FPS scores for much less money.

Other Thoughts: Just order one, don't think twice.

MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Pro Gaming with Killer Networking & Sound Blaster Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: In a day and age where things seem to come DOA, this didn't, and kudos to MSI for that. OC's so easily, I have my 4670k at 4ghz and 8gb G.Skill ram at it's XMP 2133 profile without changing voltages or anything else. It just works, and works well.

Cons: Upon first booting and beginning to install Windows, it was a little bit challenging figuring out the boot order, the UEFI and choices make things a bit confusing i thought. Once I finally selected the correct dvd drive(not sure why it shows anything other than what is installed) Windows finally booted from the disk and loaded as it should without issue.

Other Thoughts: Wish it came with SLI bridge - totally stupid that it doesn't since the slot spacing is not together, and I have yet to buy a video card that includes one as well. So sick of manufacturers touting a gaming motherboard and not including the absolute basics. just one more thing I have to try and find when I get my second 760 GTX
