Rosewill RCDC-14012 - 15-Foot White DisplayPort to HDMI Cable - 28 AWG, Male-to-Male
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: gives me the ability to use an output on my video card

Cons: costs me yet another amount of money to add

Other Thoughts: wish there were just leads I could add so I could have saved this money. I want to be the unique member of the IEEE that says "no, not another darn cable."

SAPPHIRE DUAL-X Radeon R9 280 DirectX 11.2 100373-2L 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Newer code for a preexisting chip, ok as long as it works
Got some free games
PCIe 3.0 - at some point in the future
Not going to worry about running anything now
Everything looks nicer

Cons: Uses a lot of watts(200). With great power comes great power bills
it's quite a bit of money for me, so I have to sell other things

Other Thoughts: I hope this card lasts me 5 years.
Cheaper than an Xbone or PS4

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy...THE PRICE! Got this for less than the 6 core 2yrs ago.
Zippy as...
Comparable to many intel's in terms of performance plus I guess it can oc fairly well if you squeeze it out of the box. Just leave the fan in the box as per usual.

Cons: Always a challenge to get the paste cured and dial in the right operating temps with these amd's. I shut turbo off both for economy sake and temperature consistency. Those oem fans just never seem up to the job imo and I never use them.

Other Thoughts: for the price I got this at it was time for me to jump. BF4 is an absolute hog of comp resources and this cpu got it in line reducing the tax it put on other operating programs and the OS.
I use Passmark online to check performance and price.
