ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: its a great upgrade from the GTX 550 ti that i had before. i am able to run all my current games on max settings with no problems

Cons: the only issue that i have had is that on the box it says its compatible with windows 8, which it is, but the software for their GPU Tweak will not install for some reason, i have tried to download the most updated version from the Asus site, and i still cant seem to get it to download. it crashes once it gets through the install shield. tried a google search and couldnt find any help on it either. in my opinion if Asus has software that comes with a product they sell it should work with no issue. not the case for this

Other Thoughts: if your in need a great car then look no further. just dont rely on the GPU Tweak that comes with it, since i cant even manage to get it to download

Pros: really fast and easy to install along with the added bonus of having a heat sink right on it

Cons: none that i have at the moment but don't see anything arising in the future either

ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: like mentioned below the user manual was my bible of sorts for the install, this being my first. the lights on the motherboard were a plus just in case something went horribly wrong they would tell you, but nothing did for me
* easy to flash the BIOS if you need to since the USB ports give access to super fast flash abilities

Cons: it was a bit of a pain to figure out what speaker cables went to which whole, since i have a 5.1 speaker system for gaming, and the board has 6 different holes to jam stuff into back there

some of the extra things on the start up disk aren't compatible with windows 8 so its a pain to install some of the utilities that come with the board

i have had a problem with the board saying "no hard disk discovered" during the post screen and then going right back into windows, the computer runs fine and the BIOS recognizes that it is plugged in, so im at a bit of a loss as to how to make that error go away.
