Pros: Fantastic card! Plays everything flawlessly in my experience with BF4, Bioshock Infinite, and some benchmarks like 3DMark. I haven't quite got my PC properly cooled so I can't indicate if the GPU makes that much sound but with some research I found that this is one of the quietest models of the 780.
Cons: I had some issues first installing it because I had some little horizontal blue/pink lines on my monitor when I first installed it. Also my PC would shut down after a bit of playing games like BF4 so I figured that I need to check on the power cables to the GPU. I'm not entirely sure what was the cause but I did a BIOS update and everything seems fine for now after a month of doing so.
I won't take off an egg because the problem has disappeared after a month of usage.
Other Thoughts: When considering to pick this over the AMD 290, it was a really tough choice with the G-Sync for Nvidia and Mantle for AMD. I ultimately chose Nvidia's 780 because it was better in price per performance compared to the 290 especially since it jumped in price by around $150-$200 because of the whole Bit-coin mining thing so I'm glad I went with this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The many features on the board was great for my build. I was starting to get into the mid-high range build for my computer and this was a great MB to start with my i7 3770K. It also came with a free 60GB SSD when I first got it so that's always a plus. The BIOS is also very easy to manage and that's always great.
Cons: Maybe the connectors are too far away for my PS cables to reach. But I blamed that on the PS because people also had problems with that particular model so I won't take any eggs off for that.
Other Thoughts: I am going to stick with this model for as long as my CPU doesn't give out.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast, and I had no problems with this SSD.
Cons: I got it for free with my MB so I can't complain but it didn't have enough memory for my needs.
Other Thoughts: Still in use, it is storing my OS at the moment.READ FULL REVIEW
