EVGA GeForce GTX 970 DirectX 12 04G-P4-3973-KR 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I've only benched a few games with this card, but I was able to play GTA V, Battlefront and Battlefield 4 on the highest settings available. Works great for any kind of other visual work you're doing.

Cons: I don't have any complaints other than it is very large. Make sure to check the dimensions. I had about 1/2 of an inch of space in my mATX case between the drive bay and the GPU when I put it in. I had bought a new case as I thought it wasn't really conducive to airflow.

Other Thoughts: I would like to note to others that the GPU is in passive mode (meaning the fans don't spin) until it hits 65c. I've read on a few other sites that people were trashing the cards thinking the fans weren't working. Don't make that mistake. I also don't think the fans are particularly noisier than other cards. I'm coming from an HD 7850 which made just about as much noise as this card.

DIYPC Cuboid-R Black / Red USB 3.0 Gaming Micro-ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ 1 x 200mm LED Red Fan x Front, 1 x 120mm LED Red Fan x rear
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Large for an mATX case but small enough not to be hogging space
-Cable management possibilities
-The 2.5" and 3.5" drive bays
-Window tint on side panels and the LEDs on the fans are not over-bearing
-Fans are super quiet
-Allows expansion for top fans and also has a filter

Cons: The only con I have to list so far is that the standoff screws suck. The screws provided either won't let me screw in all the way or they won't fit at all. I had to snag some standoffs and screws from work to mount my board in the case. Not a huge issue for me, but for people without that kind of access to those screws, it can be a pain in the rump.

Other Thoughts: I may not be qualified to give this such a high review based on the amount of time I've owned it, but I'm impressed considering the number of builds I've done with various cases.

1 out of 5 eggs Some Instructions Would Be Nice... 04/12/2016

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - The Division

Pros: Comes with new video card.

Cons: No instructions on how to redeem, nor did I get an email with the code like others are saying they had received. Newegg also sent me a $20 gift card for Blue Apron. Is that their way of telling me they ran out of codes? Like come on, at least be honest.
