Pros: This card, when I first switched out my aging 660s in sli didn't seem like a big difference.....at first. I feel as I would go up with higher resolutions than your more typical 1080 to 2560x1080, 2560x1440, 2560x1600, to then 4k res itself this card shows it's capability more and more. I play on a single 2560x1440 with one card and could play every game I own on ultra, including games like Assassin Creed Unity, which is awful with optimization. Hell I was play on the other 4k monitor I own in AC: Unity at high setting to very high with no lag with one card. It is a beast with anything above your 1920x1080 resolution you will most definitely notice. I know some people complained about pricing, and all that but honestly I do not really see it in comparison to other cards when they first came out. 780 cost my buddy more for sure and the 780ti was close to 1000$ at one point so getting this dead quiet, well cooled, beast of a card for 520$ (20$ off) Seems to be a straight deal in comparison... let us face it, us gamers have it bad from these companies anyways because they know we will pay for that eye candy, lol. But at least EVGA gives you the option to upgrade and trade it and has some great customer care and support. So hands down you want to game on higher resolutions and depending on the games you play then the EVGA acx2.0 980 and 970 are your best bet.
Cons: Having to pay more than your cpu and motherboard for a gpu sucks in general doesn't matter that the gpu is boss. Well to be fair my cpu is the same price, but that is just because of getting into video creation and editing.
Other Thoughts: If you need something for ultra HD then get one of these bad boys, if you do not need everything maxed out this card alone will be enough for 4k right now. Then you can always upgrade to SLI.

This review is from: MSI X99S Gaming 7 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: So far for the price that I bought this motherboard, it was really a good bargain when I purchased this to replace a gigabyte x99 board that was just fail. I will be honest and say I usually go with Asus for my motherboards in my builds, due to the feature set and reliability of them so far. But with the x99 motherboards everything is priced higher so I had to make due. I have not been disappointed with the Gaming 7, not at all, it does not seem cheap with materials and was a great price in comparison for the features it had included. OC genie is nice and does not heighten voltage to ludoucris numbers like some other motherboards out there. and it reached 4ghz with stock voltages just fine. The installation of everything was simple and easy. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend to another customer. Plenty of sata ports decently spaced pci-e 3.0 x16 slots for sli, many of the other x99 boards seemed to be not lacking lanes but space to sli.
I am currently running an i7 5930k clocked at 4.3 ghz @1.175v and have two 980s in sli with any hiccups, thank well apparently I cannot say that word, goodness for the lack of the word used.
Cons: only cons I con I can really think of perhaps is the pcie x1 slots can be covered if sli or crossfire is your thing, but to be fair to this motherboard many more expensive boards have the same issue. Other than that, it really is a good board with great features.
Other Thoughts: I will keep this review updated given that i have only had this motherboard installed for a few days, but it was a breeze to work with and did not fail me like the gigabyte udh5(which turned of the radiator fans without my knowledge while setting up bios and caused some over heating that could of ruined my chip... so solid option if one cannot afford Asus, I think this board and the ASrock extreme 6 are you best bets.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries 7H 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Headset
Pros: Okay so first off this bought at a low price that is just awesome, and was bought to replace the Platronics Gamecon 780 that is just far too uncomfortable for having great sound. I will say this headset has fantastic sound quality for the price 30 usd. Now, the fit is definitely snug when first wearing this headset, but it loosens up relatively quickly and becomes quite comfortable for someone with even a larger head. Both stereo and surround sound are great quality, also this thing can blast music very well with those 50mm drivers. I overall very happy with this headset and other than the few hiccups I had with the sound card driver it has been great and hasssle free.
Cons: Software that is downloaded from the steelseries site is not going to work well with the surround sound of this headset being that you cannot turn the frequency from 48hz to 44.1, and that you cannot turn off the S/PDIF out causing this unbearable beeping in the background. Only way to get away from this problem is either to use this headset in stereo and or find the 1.2 version of the driver and download it over the 1.0.4 version that is out right now. I was having a very hard time finding it until I recalled my siberia v2 headset that this was replacing had the software and found it after some prodding around in the room. It is working great now.
Other Thoughts: Great headset overall after fixing up the software.READ FULL REVIEW
