Pros: On Sale for $139.99 down from $199.99
Acer
Looks Amazing
Acer

Cons: Doesn't ride bih on the back of my 2014 ZX6R

Other Thoughts: I've been using a 24" LG HDTV for a while with a max resolution of 1366 X 768....yeah...brutal. Well, the TV's power port started giving me trouble, and unless the plug was plugged in-in a certain position, the TV wouldn't turn on, and if the cord was tapped by a hair, or a slight gust of wind from a fan, the wire would move a hair, and the TV would turn off,

I contacted LG, and I sent out the TV today for repair under warranty because this TV was really purchased for my little cousin's room. She's 3, but since when we got it she was still so little, I started using it for my PC, and PS3.

Well, since I knew I had to send it in, and I would be without a screen for AT LEAST 2 weeks, I decided to jump on NE, and check out what they have. Right away, I saw this TV listed as one of the sales, and after reading the specs, I gathered this was a awesome choice for the money, and the best part is, I won't even need to pay the bill when it comes.

The new monitor is AWESOME. I'm now running 1920 X 1080 via HDMI, and it's amazing. I love computers, and any form of electronics. I just got back into WoW, and this monitor provides a beautiful picture. At first I thought the colors looked washed out, but after some slight adjustments, it looks great.

I also have to mention shipping. I purchased the 3-day shipping but since I live on Long Island, and this happened to ship from the NJ warehouse yesterday, I received it TODAY. That's right, I ordered around 2pm yesterday, and got it around 1pm TODAY. That's why I LOVE living here because all Newegg, and Am_azon orders that ship from NJ, I get in 1 day.

Anyway, I recommend this monitor to ANYONE, but ONLY at the sale price of $139.99. I wouldn't of bought this for $200. Not that it isn't good but I can't justify spending $200 on a monitor but $139.99 for a 24" with the specs this thing has is a str8 up STEAL.

I hope this helps!

Have a great weekend!

GIGABYTE GV-R725O5-2GI Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Outstanding Card For the Money! 03/20/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GV-R725O5-2GI Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Great brand
Great Price
It's Not Nvidia
2GB
DDR5
128-Bit

Cons: It wasn't Free
It can't ride on the back of my 2014 ZX6R(636)
It doesn't prepare meals for me.

The ONLY issue I'm having is that sometimes if I tab out of WoW for a extended period of time, and tab back in, sound is gone and I have to close, and restart the game for sound to come back. I don't recall this happening with the APU graphics, but I can't really narrow it down to the card so I'm not removing any eggs. It could be a glitch within WoW itself because Blizzard is known for breaking stuff when fixing other things.

Other Thoughts: I recently build a low end computer for my new business I'm in the process of opening. I didn't expect to do any gaming on it but I said " meh, why not! " Nothing too special.

Mobo = MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 ( SATA III )
CPU = AMD A4-5300 3.4Ghz
RAM =Kingston HyperX 8GB PC3-12800

Storage:

Samsung 840 EVO 128GB SSD ( For OS, Drivers, Some Apps )

Western Digital Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA III which is for most applications, music, pictures, videos, movies, and games. I have SOME applications on the SSD such as Open Office, Firefox, and other stuff that I want to be fast, but everything else goes on the storage drive.

Now, I recently got back into WoW, and the integrated graphics on the APU ( CPU ) granted me 40-45 FPS in Orgrimmar, 50-60FPS in the outside world, and 20-25 FPS in heavy combat with a bunch of people. Now, all the other FPS is decent, but in combat FPS was a little low for my taste, so I started looking into low end gaming cards or perhaps this would even fall into mid range.

I received the card within 2 days with 3-day shipping. I downloaded the drivers for the card via the website, and not from the CD as usually the drivers that come on the disc are outdated so always get the latest updated drivers via the website. I shut her down, opened her up, popped the card right in-in seconds. Closed her all back up, turned her back on, everything was big and nasty. I installed the drivers, rebooted, and BOOM. Everything looked normal again.

I loaded WoW, and now I get 50-70 FPS in Orgrimmar, 100+ in the outside world, and 40-45 in combat which is honestly perfect. I was also able to test it wit a few steam games, and definitely noticed better gameplay. Most games automatically set themselves to the highest settings with this card installed.

Even though I didn't plan to game on this built, I got the card anyway because a good every now and then is fun, and I didn't want a $300 graphic card as that's overkill IMO.

Overall, for $100, this card is GREAT. I'm actually extremely happy with this card. I definitely recommend this card if you're like me, and don't really need anything too crazy. I also wanted a card that didn't require any extra power from the PSU as my PSU only has a 24+4 as i got a very basic PSU.
