ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I Actually don't own this card. I own a different GTX 670. I just wanted to say that i would buy this one to put in SLI with my other if ASUS would just drop the price down to around $200.

Cons: Price. There are better cards out there for less money from the current generation. The only reason someone has to buy this card is to run it in SLI with another GTX 670.

Other Thoughts: If you want to clear out your inventory, Asus, just drop the price on this and people like me will buy one!

ASRock Z68 PROFESSIONAL GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: ~Sharp Looking board
~Easy UEFI
~Overclocks like a superstar

Cons: ~Good lord, get the bios update. If you are an overclocker, your patience will be sorely tried by have to look at HIS face each and every time you go into bios. The bios update allows you to get his mug out of most of your system.

~Price. Yeah, i could have done without the all the stupid marketing and branding costs associated with the board. The price may very well have been lower without Fatty's endorsement. I didn't buy it because of him, i bought it because of the reviews.

Other Thoughts: 99.8, how i hate thee. Okay, so i'm a bit OCD. I recently read somewhere that you can't hit the nail on the head with an ASROCK board and get 100mhz BCLK. Through numerous trial and error situations, i found that to be true:

If you select 100mhz BCLK, you get 99.8MHZ
If you select 100.1MHZ BLCK, you get 100.1MHZ
If you select 99.9MHZ, YOU GET 99.9MHZ (What the Duece?)

Either way, it was largely irrelevant, I'm just a stickler for getting things where i want them to be. Either way, an everyday 4.6GHZ overclock is awesome:

Core i5 2500k 4.6GHZ STABLE 13 hours Prime 95 Blend
Max on highest core under load recorded at 61c.
Also in the midst of trying out 5.1ghz at 1.39. Good board.

Acer G235HAbd 23'' 5ms  1920x1080 WideScreen LCD monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought 2 of them for a dual display setup.

1. I immediately pixel tested them and found no dead pixels on either screen.
2. Versus a previous Acer LCD, these have crisper resolution.
3. Nice wide viewing angles.

Cons: Nothing that is really TRULY their fault (see below).

Other Thoughts: I don't really hold this against the monitors but...

1. Whereas their stands look awesome and function well, they have some sharp edges. i shifted one and gouged the hell out of my desk. IF you have a cheapo desk like do, beware. But seriously, don't hold this against the monitors, it was the desk's fault.

2. Be PATIENT while attaching the monitor to the stand. It's a socketed "snap in" sort of deal, and it is very persnickety about putting it together 'just so.' It took me 6 or 7 tries to get the thing to snap together. The second monitor only took me 3 attempts. I can see this pushing a less patient person into trying to ram it together, which could lead to a duct-tape solution.
