MSI N660TI PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Not overly large
- Quiet
- Nice FPS in all games

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Great card bought it locally used from a guy upgrading for $160.00 a few months ago. The card was in perfect condition. I had an MSI HD 7870 Ghz I bought here that I very much liked but this one performed better overall in most games around 5-15 FPS faster game depending. The HD 7870 being faster in a few (Crysis 3 being one of them).

I would have been happy with either card, but I will take the decent FPS boost I get with this one and I could not pass up a card in that good of condition for that price at that time =)

MSI R7870-2GD5T/OC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Not too large very quiet

Cons: None for what it is (which is a legend)

Other Thoughts: Well owning this card for nearly a year I can say without a doubt it's the best newegg purchase I ever made and I have purchases from newegg dating back to 2001 even though they don't have anywhere near all my purchases linked in my profile for some reason (likely my email changes). One of my fist purchases here was the old Soyo Dragon KT 266a motherboard (VIA based).

Back to the MSI HD 7870, I do also own and use a Twin Frozr MSI GTX 660TI that I bought locally from someone upgrading to a GTX 780. I use both an AMD FX 8350 rig and also an Intel I5 4670K rig. I would be fine with either card in either rig and I have tested extensively both MSI cards in both rigs. The HD 7870 is an average of 5-15 FPS slower in most games vs. the GTX 660TI at the same resolutions. However a few games favor the HD 7870 by 5-10 FPS. Keep in mind the MSI GTX 660TI twin Frozer is basically slightly a cut down GTX 670. Right now I have the HD 7870 in the Intel rig and the 660Ti in the AMD system. The HD 7870 is a tad quieter but both cards are remarkably quiet compared to other vendors cards. MSI makes and designs very good cards and very good fan ramping speeds.

It plays any game @ 1680x1050 @ ultra ~ 1080p on high and many games ultra settings at 1080p playable FPS (and then some usually). Rarely does this card dip below 50 in any game even the most demanding.

Also a final note I have no coil wine -- like ever. It's likely a bad card for others complaining about that like the previous review mentioned, and that happens with any vendor unfortunately.

Here is a toast the best video card value possibly ever offered when newegg had this beast @ $130.00.

Acer S241HLbmid  Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Thin & light
-Easy Setup

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I got this LCD when it was $139.00 so it was a real bargain. Set up out of the box perfectly no issues. I would recommend that a gamer uses DVI and not HDMI as the colors (full on rgb) are better. It comes with all the cables you need and that's very classy of Acer to do that. Big screen & great for gaming & movies I didn't notice any ghosting in 1st person games nor RPG's and i'm definitely a gamer. DVD's look fantastic. This LCD replaced a 22" LG L226-WTQ as my main screen, which is still a very good LCD even after 6 years. Still using it as a second display though. I do highy recommend this Acer 24".
