Pros: -$99.99 after a $30 mail in rebate!!
-Even this low range graphics card is a vast improvement over the GTX 650. I am able to play all of my games now at or near high/ultra settings and get 60FPS. I'm on a 1080p monitor and that is enough for me to enjoy the games.
-Was enjoyable to open and see how huge these cards are.
-Could name everything people have mentioned below, but simply put, it does everything you need it to do for $99.99. Can't stress that amount more.
-Just a big smile on my face now that I can enjoy these games more.
-Will upgrade again in a year or two
Cons: Card is huge compared to my single fan 650 so I had to make a lot of adjustments (using a Rosewill Challenger Case and non modular power supply 450w). Gets a little hotter than my previous card and has a little more wattage, but that's expected.
Other Thoughts: Not that I can't afford a $500 card, but If you aren't needing to game at full settings on 1440p or 4k which is absurd, then you don't need anything more expensive for now. Not to mention, I have a 450w supply, an older pci 2.0 motherboard and AMD 6300 6 core chip.. Don't feel like building a whole new rig to have a better card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported
Pros: Amazing Case
-Very simple looking with a sleek design
-Power Supply sits on the bottom ++
-HD Slots are easy to load and screw in
-Easy taking apart the side panels
-Mid Towers are by no means small, this baby is huge and I like that!
-Came with all necessary screws and supplies
-All parts squeezed in with ample space and lots of breathing room.
Cons: The front cover is kind of hard to take off without giving it a little muscle. I would suggest taking that off people plugging anything in to your mother board because you will rip out your wires.
Other Thoughts: This wasn't a big deal because it's a cheap upgrade, but the case lacks color so I added 2 - 120mm blue led fans on the side, replaced the 140mm on the top with a blue led fan and now this baby glows nice and bright the way I like it! :)
No need to replace the 120 in the back since it faces away from me.
Pros: Nice display
Touch controls are nice
Cons: -HD Monitor with no HDMI cord provided?
-The Stand is kind of flimsy and feels like it's going to break at somepoint. It doesn't sit in the stand flush as well even when you try to apply some pressure.
Might be just the monitor I received and nobody elses.
Other Thoughts: At first I didn't think the monitor would tilt up or down, but it does so that is nice.READ FULL REVIEW
