EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Plays any game on High to Ultra Settings
-Virtually Silent (fan only kicks in when under a serious load, and even then you don't notice it)

Cons: -Very Long Card (had to rearrange PSU cords in case)
-Price (not really a true con because all good video cards are expensive, but they shouldn't be the cost of a gaming console)

Other Thoughts: I bought this video card for the release of Fallout 4. My old GTX 460 gpu (I was told) would not be able to run the game to my liking. In fact, I did use the GTX 460, and it did play the game fine (no lag or stutter), but only on all Low Settings - if you ever want to see how ugly a new Fallout game can look, turn all setting on your gpu down to low - it is horrendous.
I figure this gpu will last be for another 2+ years. I already replayed all of my "older" games, and this thing maxes them out. Newegg gave me great service, per usual.

ViewSonic VG1932wm-LED 19
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Our office just ordered and installed these for all employees. For the short period of time that I have had it, it is working great and looks nice. However, I just saw the price of this and I have to say: Why so much? There are so many other options with larger screens for less.

Cons: Pretty pricey for a 19" monitor.

GIGABYTE GA-N650SLI-DS4L LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Cheap, Cheap - BUY THIS 02/15/2008

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-N650SLI-DS4L LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Booted up right out of box. Cheap, Cheap. Good overclocking features (see below for my OC). Cannot go wrong with Gigabyte - they've been around forever.

Cons: Gigabyte Overclock features in BIOS are always hidden - must tap Ctrl-F1 to access them. Also, documentation for overclocking is awful - must know before going down that road. Luckily, I had some experience and PATIENCE.

Other Thoughts: Use this mobo for a build for my girlfriend. OVERKILL!! Paired with E2160 (cheap, cheap - 1.8 ghz), Arctic Freezer 7 pro, 2 gig RAM, and geforce 7200 gs. Overclocked cpu to 2.8 ghz - STABLE. [In BIOS, set ratio to "LINKED", and then just kept kicking the FSB up until that number, times multiplier, reached what I was aiming for. No bridge fans = Ultra quiet. Insane speed for basic office functions. Can turn a wimpy cpu into a gamer.
